The World’s First Leica Quad Camera HUAWEI P30 Series Landed in Malaysia

Just one week after its highly celebrated global launch in Paris, HUAWEI  launched the HUAWEI P30 Series in Malaysia.

HUAWEI P30 MY Launch_1

Evidently surging ahead as a tech leader and leading the smartphone industry with many “world’s firsts” in recent years, such as the World’s First Leica Dual Camera with the HUAWEI P9 Series, World’s First AI Processor Smartphone with the HUAWEI Mate 10 Series, World’s First Leica Triple Camera with the HUAWEI P20 Series and now, with the World’s First Leica Quad Camera crowned to the HUAWEI P30 Pro, HUAWEI is proving to be a record breaker in the smartphone industry.

Featuring the innovative HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor, an optical SuperZoom Lens, a new HUAWEI Time of Flight (ToF) Camera, and enhanced optical and AI image stabilisation technology, the HUAWEI P30 and HUAWEI P30 Pro can capture incredible photos and videos in every scenario, placing emphasis on the HUAWEI P Series’ DNA in design and photography.

“Last year, the HUAWEI P20 Series started a revolution in static photos and managed to retain the number one spot on the DxOMark leaderboard for a year. Today, the HUAWEI P30 Series will play a vital role in changing consumer’s expectations towards smartphone photography,” said Matthew Ng, Deputy Country Director, Consumer Business Group, HUAWEI Malaysia.

The new HUAWEI P30 Series comes fully equipped with:

  • a SuperZoom lens, fitted seamlessly into the ultra slim chassis
  • through a new periscope design, the HUAWEI P30 Series supports a high-fidelity magnification of 5X optical zoom, 10X hybrid zoom, and up to 50X zoom.
  • A prism element in the telephoto camera bends light at a 90-degree angle to maximise focal length while minimising camera height, allowing minimal disruption on the device design.

This expertise in smartphone photography is proven with its recent achievement of a record-high overall DxOMark score of 112 for its HUAWEI P30 Pro smartphone. True to its achievement, the HUAWEI P30 Pro is equipped with a new Leica Quad Camera System, including a 40MP main camera with the HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide angle camera, an 8MP telephoto camera, the HUAWEI ToF Camera and a 32MP front camera that takes selfies to a whole new level.

“In recent years, HUAWEI has been leading the trends with numerous breakthroughs. We aim to strengthen our footprint in surging ahead as a tech leader with our continuous research and investment in technological inventions and innovations. Innovations such as the HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor and SuperZoom Lens allow us to push the envelope of both photography and videography – a frontier long overdue for disruption. The HUAWEI P30 Series will set the pace for the next generation of smartphones by empowering people to capture the true beauty of the world around them through a device that fits in the palm of their hands.” added Matthew.

During the launch event, HUAWEI addressed the need for an all-scenario intelligent ecosystem by announcing the availability of the HUAWEI MateBook 13. Equipped with the remarkable HUAWEI Share 3.0 with OneHop technology, HUAWEI has solved the challenge of transferring files between Windows and Android devices by changing the way users share pictures and videos between devices. This feature solves the pain point that conventional PC makers fail to address. With OneHop, tap and share documents, images, texts, and videos between your HUAWEI P30 Series smartphones and laptops in just a single tap.

To further enhance this ecosystem, HUAWEI also announced new additions to its HUAWEI WATCH GT line-up – the 46mm and 42mm Editions – industry leading fitness and wellness tracking capabilities in a premium classic watch design. While the HUAWEI WATCH GT supports a range of indoor and outdoor fitness activities, the new HUAWEI WATCH GT 46mm and 42mm Editions now feature a ‘Triathlon’ mode will be made available via an update, in addition to the HUAWEI TruSeen™ 3.0 heart rate monitoring and TruSleep™ 2.0 scientific sleep tracking features.

Realme 3, The Trendiest Smartphone With Gradient Unibody Design

The trendiest smartphone in the mid-range segment, featuring a Gradient Unibody design: define the “young creative aesthetic” of the mobile phone industry

realme Malaysia, a smartphone brand that is Proud To Be Young and is dedicated to creating high-quality experiences for young people, released its realme 3 smartphone.

Image 5 - One of two phone cases from Joee Cheong's Galaxy Inspired Collection

Now  offering an exclusive discount for the realme 3 (3GB RAM + 32GB ROM) in conjunction with Lazada’s 7th Birthday Sale on 27th March 2019.

Image 2 - Models with the realme 3 smartphones

“The realme series has already sold more than 5 million units worldwide. As the latest product in the realme series, realme 3 leads the charge for the brand into 2019 and builds on the success of realme 2, realme 2 Pro and realme C1.

realme 3 represents how we continue to comprehensively upgrade performance and design, bringing new products and experiences to young consumers, and why we are their undisputed first choice in our price segment”, said Tiffany Teh, Brand Manager, realme Malaysia.

“We are happy that realme has chosen to continue their rapid growth in the Malaysian market by partnering with Lazada. Having realme onboard with us offering deals exclusive to Lazada’s 7th Birthday Sale allows us to provide our shoppers with trendy, accessible technology at great price points. It’s our birthday, but it really is your party,” said Sherry Tan, Chief Business Officer, Lazada Malaysia.

Gradient Unibody Design creates stunning looks and smoother, lighter body
realme 3 utilises Gradient Unibody Design, matched color to take the quality of whole phone to new heights, bringing the best tactile and visual experience to consumers in this segment.

The traditional “sandwich” format of screen-middle frame-back cover is abandoned, for an integrated injection moulded body, eliminating the need for a middle frame, to achieve a better grip. At the same time, it makes the whole phone look smoother and lighter, to fit perfectly in one’s hand.

In order to give young people the best visual experience, realme 3 uses gradient colour matching:

  • Dynamic Black-based on a two-tone black-blue scheme which goes through a three-round spraying process to achieve a natural gradient between black and blue.  And the blue part uses special painting which changes with the viewing angle, appearing to shift between blue and purple. The addition of pearl powder gives the back cover a more colorful look and greater depth.
  • Radiant Blue-color scheme offers another visual effect, combining a mirror effect produced with the NCVM process by vaporizing a silver reflective layer onto the back cover, then spraying over a translucent blue-green ink to create a graduated colour effect.

Ultra-high screen-to-body ratio, dewdrop screen provides stronger immersive experience
realme 3, based on realme 2, has upgraded its screen from a notch screen to a dewdrop screen that integrates the front camera, light sensor and distance sensor. The handset integrates the small “dewdrop” at the top of the screen, resulting in a screen ratio as high as 88.3%.

The new realme 3 means a wider field of view, greatly improved information display efficiency, and a stronger visual immersion when browsing images and videos.

Stronger processing power

In conjunction with the launch of honor 8X, the brand also took the opportunity to introduce a special collaboration with Suriana Welfare Society Malaysia, a non-government, not-for-profit child protection organization which promotes and protects the rights of children. The collaboration aims to empower and inspire the next generation to live the moment and achieve their dreams. This initiative is driven through collaborative art with the theme “The Braves”.
