Huawei P30 Pro will debut at the Chinese tech giant’s scheduled hardware event on March 26 in the French capital of Paris.
The handset has been heavily rumoured to arrive with a substantial camera upgrade over its predecessor.
In fact, alleged press renders for the product, that recently surfaced courtesy of WinFuture, showed the handset with four cameras on its rear.
Three of the lenses were showcased in a single module stacked vertically while the other was displayed underneath the phone’s flash.
Additionally, the device was also showcased with an all-screen design on its front.
A small notch was present on the top of the device and the panel itself was curved.
P30 Pro was shown in what WinFuture claimed were “ice white” and “aurora” gradient finishes.
The former boasted tones of purple, blue and white while the latter mixed blue shades with green.
While it is expected the P30 Pro will be powered by Huawei’s latest and greatest Kirin 980 chipset, it was previously unknown how the device could stack up against its predecessor in terms of pure performance.
Geekbench is a benchmarking platform that analyses the internals of smartphones and awards a numbered score based on single-core and multi-core performance.
Although the smartphone tested was named “Huawei VOG-L29”, the description of its processor suggests it is powered by the same Kirin 980 that powers the Mate 20 Pro.
Furthermore, the phone’s claimed 8GB of RAM appears to line up with a recent specification leak for the hardware.
The device in question was handed a single-core tally of 3,289 and a multi-core of 9,817.
If the post is accurate, and is referring to the P30 Pro, it means the device could be much more capable than the P20 Pro.
The P20 Pro has already been given a single-core score of 1,919 and a multi-core sum of 6,837 by Geekbench.
However, it is worth noting the P20 Pro version tested was the model with 6GB of RAM, and not with 8GB.
But, while Geekbench scores do not always reflect how a phone will perform in real world use cases, it does appear the P30 Pro could deliver a substantial performance boost over its predecessor.
However, it is worth noting the new listing from Geekbench has not been officially confirmed to be for the P30 Pro.
