Honor V30 Released

Honor V30 and V30 Pro presented

Honor View 30 and Honor View 30 Pro were released not full 48 hours ago and the two brothers are the brand’s first jab at the 5G network. But, these devices are far more than just an update to meet the new network tech, as they both come with powerful features in and of themselves. They represent the company’s flagships, first ones to sail in the 5G waters, and they came out right as the new networks spread throughout the world.

Honor V30 Smartphone series is powered by Kirin 990 SoC. Both devices are equipped with a 40MP sensor in a triple main camera set. Both phones also have the hole-punch front design, with dual selfie cams and a fingerprint sensor mounted on the side. And, when it comes to the latest network capabilities, both support the dual-mode 5G connectivity.

The manufacturer claims that the devices’ 40W fast-charging tech enables them to charge from 0 to 70% in about 30 minutes. They both come with hefty storage variations and RAM combinations, which as you know affect the pricing the most. Now, as this is the Chinese manufacturer’s flagship and there are certainly affordable Smartphone models which came out this year, the price can be considered a bit steep, but looking at the specifications its approximate price of $600 for the basic model is perhaps not that expensive.

As seen in the detailed specs, both devices’ strong points are their connectivity variations, the powerful Kirin 990 chipset, the octa-core GPU, a decent rear cam with a strong selfie cam, and the versatile battery. Honor View 30 Pro even supports wireless fast charging, which is neat.

The 40MP main camera on V30 is assisted by an 8MP telephoto lens and an 8MP wide-angle shooter. V30 Pro has an even more powerful cam set, with 12MP wide-angle cam to help out on details.

Both devices pack 128GB/256GB variations of built-in storage, no SIM card needed. And, of course, all variations are carried by their 8GB RAM, no less. The pricing will be different depending on the country, the retailer, and the deal offered, but the devices are close to each other in the price range, which is somewhere between $600 and $700, depending on the model. Now, Honor brand is owned by Huawei Technologies, so Honor View 30 and Honor V30 Pro will probably not be available in the USA or UK for that matter, due to the ongoing USA VS China Phone Wars.
