Honor V30 launch date is set for this November, says the president of the company and also promises it will come with 5G NSA and SA Support. Honor V30 Pro is also expected to make a debut alongside its sibling device next month, as everyone in the tech world is expressing their expectations and personal preferences about the upcoming devices. While they will both be formidable flagships according to the specifications known so far, we still don’t have the full scope of their might.
Leaks about these two upcoming devices started pouring in about a month ago when online sources reported many of the rumors. Mentions of a 60MP main camera setup, a hole-punch front cam design, and several other important rumored features were all named. However, the president of Honor, Mr. Zhao Ming, has now disclosed some of the information about the flagships. Mainly, he stated that the Honor V30 and Honor V30 Pro release date is on November 5th, 2019, and that they will, of course, support 5G, both the Non-Standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) standards.
Furthermore, at the heart of the device will be their in-house Kirin 990 5G SoC, based on the advanced 7nm process, which is supposedly the smallest 5G chipset that can support the dual NSA and SA connectivity.
The news about the device’s launch and some of its specifications were delivered by Mr. Zhao at the 6th World Internet Conference, held in China on October 20. However, according to online sources, it seems that those are the only things president Zhao confirmed, regarding rumored specifications. He did not address any other rumors, reported leaks, or claims. He did not actually even say if the two devices will make their entrance together, but it appears that Honor V30 Pro will have slightly better hardware.
As far as we know, the difference between SA and NSA 5G is huge. The NSA still employs the already existing 4G infrastructure, which telecom operators can use to jump it to 5G after the rollout. The 5G SA, however, requires entirely new infrastructure to be built, but on the plus side, this is an opportunity to tap into the unexplored potentials of the new connectivity with higher performance in all ways. 5G Smartphones launched so far support either one or the other, but the upcoming Honor and new Huawei models can use both infrastructures, meaning their users can easily tap into different regions’ networks and operators if need be.
So, it seems that President Zhao’s small reveal is one of the key features of the upcoming Honor V30 and Honor V30 Pro devices, as both will be able to tap into NSA and SA 5G networks, wherever they are, just as long as there is 5G connectivity available. Other unconfirmed leaks about them say they will come with a 4,000mAh battery (22.5W SuperCharge) and have the mentioned 60MP camera setup, while other features are currently not even in speculations.
