As we all have expected Huawei has surprised the world with the super cool smartphone P30 and P30 Pro, the China tech giant always takes the lead on innovative camera settings and incredible shooting effect. What about the old features? Like the IR blaster and NFC functions, more and more smartphone makers tend to ditch them, including the headphone jack. While Huawei is one of the old-fashion keepers regarding some so-called ‘useless’ features, however there are still a number of customers who are willing to have them on their smartphones.
Do Huawei P30 and P30 Pro have IR blaster?
No, and Yes. Huawei P30 doesn’t have IR blaster but P30 Pro features it. You can easily find the result by looking at the bottom edge of the phone, the IR blaster is a small circle hole. With IR blaster you can use Huawei P30 Pro as a remote to control TV, Air Conditioner, Music Player, Projectors, Set top box etc. Huawei P30 doesn’t support IR control is a little bit disappointing since its predecessor P20 has it, but anyway P30 has headphone jack back while P30 Pro doesn’t, so it’s nearly a draw.
Do Huawei P30 and P30 Pro have NFC?
Yes, both of them features this comm spec, actually these days NFC is nearly in every phone. What is NFC and what can you do with it? NFC is short for Near Field Communication, it’s a method of wireless data transfer and share, you can use it to share contacts, messages, images or even make purchase on the devices that support NFC, like frequently used Apple Pay or Android Pay. It’s really convenient when you use your phone to pay the metro ticket without cash or coins if the metro entrance scanner has NFC supported. Plus, Huawei makes it even better, you can upload your ID card into Huawei Pay and use it as an electronic version in case that you need to check-in without having the physical card.
In fact not only smartphones are NFC enabled on the market, the smartwatches have joined this team as well, the Apple Watch, Huawei Watch, Galaxy Watch. I believe that in the near future NFC will be commonly applied in the wearable devices, technology development and integration will benefit more customers.
