Huawei unveiled the P30 Pro smartphone a touch early

There's not a lot left to know for its March 26th event.

Huawei might know how to build photo-centric smartphones, but the concept of web pages is apparently beyond its grasp. As spotted by Evan Blass, it unveiled an event page for the phone that reveals pretty much everything you'd want to know ahead of its March 26th Paris Event. As expected, it'll have a quad camera array -- with the main packing a 40-megapixel sensor -- and 10X hybrid zoom, doubling the P20 Pro's 5X zoom.

There are some interesting new details, too. The P30 Pro (and P30 to a lesser extent) will have improved low-light capability, making them better for night shooting. They'll also pack a so-called dual-view video mode. That will show two of the four cameras at the same time in split-screen, letting you see both a close-up and wide-angle view. The feature could make it easier to track distant, fast moving subjects, or quickly switch between views like some kind of smartphone-toting television director. It's not clear whether you can record in the split format as well, however.

The page also unveiled the Huawei Watch GT Active edition, which will be offered for free to P30 Pro buyers at Huawei's Singapore event. It'll likely be a more sporty version of Huawei's Watch GT, which is powered (unfortuantely) by Huawei's own operating system, not Google's Wear OS. The P30 phones will be unveiled on Tuesday, March 26th in Paris, and Engadget will be there to cover the event -- the devices might be difficult to find in the US, however.
