- Page 9: Wrapping up the Huawei P30 review
Huawei did not actually did much in terms of design for the new P30. It still has the same flat glass sandwich design on both sides. In terms of geometry, Huawei still retains the same overall shape.
As for the back, this is where things get interesting. Gone are the days with their Twilight color scheme and comes the new “breathing crystal” and also the new “aurora” color. The P30 we have for review here is in the aurora color option.
Technically, it’s just different gradients of blue. It’s not entirely “aurora” per se, just that it has some colors of the aurora. From a teardown here, we can assume that the P30 is also using the same anodized frame that the P30 Pro has. Anodized metal means that colors will still remain even though the metal has been scratched. Definitely a nice touch.
Huawei’s camera bulge on the P30 is rather huge too – so I recommend you to use the included TPU case to at least provide a ring around the cameras. Still, laying down the phone with the camera facing down is risky.
