These updates are set to be available on a device we already rank as one of the best you can buy. In our review of the Huawei P30 Pro, we rate its camera as the very best around, especially for its lossless zoom and low-light performance. We also praised the long-lasting battery life (enhanced by fast-charging), and the speedy performance.

Huawei isn’t resting on its laurels — in September the Huawei Mate X foldable phone is expected to be released, following shortly by the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, the phablet flagship. But since Huawei has suffered a ban from Android and ARM, there’s no guarantee that future launches will go ahead exactly as planned.
