Huawei has waited till IFA 2019 to make two big announcements. One of them is around its flagship P30 Pro. This smartphone is getting two major upgrades – one of the inside and one outside. Let’s take a deeper dive into what’s new with the Huawei P30 Pro.

Starting off with the outside, and the Huawei P30 Pro get two classy new color variants. What we see is in line with the previous leaks. Huawei is calling them ‘Misty Lavender’ and ‘Mystic Blue’. Unlike the flashy Breathing Crystal variant, these new colors look a tad sedated. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Apart from the new color schemes, the Huawei P30 Pro is also getting a new finish, which makes the smartphone feel new. There is now a two-tone finish, which reminds you of the Google Pixels. The top third of the phone gets a glass-like finish, while the bottom two thirds gets a frosted matte finish.
