The Huawei P30 variant caught on Geekbench happens to be ELE-L29. Just as expected, the smartphone runs on a Kirin 980 chipset, which is Huawei’s current flagship mobile chipset. In terms of benchmarking performance, the vanilla P30 managed to perform very slightly better than the Pro variant. It scored 3,296 points in the single-core test and 9,900 points in the multi-core test. The Huawei P30 Pro, on the other hand, had scored 3,289 points in the single-core test and 9,817 points in the multi-core test.

As for software, the Geekbench listing makes it quite clear that the upcoming P30 series smartphone will run on the latest Android Pie OS out of the box.
