Huawei’s high-end P series was renewed last month for 2019 and it is still in the news. Well, it should be because of its specification and mostly because of its camera capabilities within low-light and pitch black lighting conditions. Initially, in EMUI 9.1 version that shipped with the device, Dual View Camera Mode feature wasn’t available, this feature was promised through an update and here it is.
Within EMUI 220.127.116.11 comes Dual View Camera Mode which has a capability of recording videos with its primary camera along with the zoom lens. Both can be used simultaneously to record the subject along with its detail. Such a feature can make it easier for videographers to shoot professionally as Huawei P30 Pro has a triple camera array along with 50x Super Zoom.
