Huawei has been providing the EMUI 10.1 update to the Huawei P30 Pro variants for some time now. The update arrived for Huawei P30 Pro in India pretty recently offering all the goodies from EMUI 10.1. However, users are a bit disappointed with the overhauled Camera app.

The Huawei P30 Pro Camera app allowed users to tweak the resolution settings before the EMUI 10.1 update. Now, the Photo Resolution menu has been removed from the Camera app and users are unable to select the desired [4:3] 40MP option on their Huawei P30 Pro.

Users have been taking to online platforms like Twitter, xda-developers, and Huawei community forums demanding an explanation. The camera feature clearly came in handy especially because Huawei P30 Pro has a 40 MP sensor for the main camera.

Users were allowed to exploit the P30 Pro’s camera setup by selecting the [4:3] 40 MP photo resolution option as the default camera configuration is set to the [4:3] 10 MP resolution. Now, the menu is no longer present in the Camera app but there is nothing to worry about.

Huawei has simply replaced the Photo Resolution menu after the EMUI 10.1 update. Also, the 40mpx mode has been highly improved and is now known as the High Resolution mode. It can be enabled by going to the “More” settings in the Camera app.

The information is shared by a member of the Huawei community’s content crew team. The member has also highlighted that the best way to exploit this new mode is by using it along with the Pro mode. This means that the EMUI 10.1 update has indeed enhanced the camera of Huawei P30 Pro.

A thing is certain: The 40mpx mode was not pulled out of the Camera app! It has even got better and it’s easier to find it and use it. This mode is now called “High Resolution” and can be found in “More” in the Camera app.


So, those who were disappointed with the missing Photo Resolution menu can now rejoice as the Huawei P30 Pro Camera app has become even more sophisticated. This clearly shows the capability of the device’s hardware and also to what extent it can be pushed.
