And we have Honor is not real! Russian Honor 30S, price, differences from the “Chinese”, the European twin

I repent, I missed the Russian presentation of the familyHonor 30. Then they did not send me a press release, then they sent it, then their hands did not reach, then the body decided to get sick. Now I began to read the press release and realized that something was wrong.

The original Honor 30S was introduced in China and for China at the very end of March this year. It can be found on Aliexpress and other Chinese stores.

Now look. Back view. On the left is the Chinese Honor 30S. On the right is the one brought to Russia. The design of the camera unit for smartphones is different.

He began to compare the characteristics. There are few differences, but they still exist. The Russian Honor 30S has a slightly different set of cameras. Instead of a television set a macro camera. But the Chinese do not have NFC, and in Russia there is no way without him, so they added. The Chinese have no support for LTE Bands 7 and 20. Our device, obviously, should have them.

It is not clear with the support of 5G networks. The Chinese Honor 30S has it. Does the Russian have? A detailed specification with full frequency sets for the Russian is not yet visible anywhere. True, in the press release there is a phrase common to the entire Honor 30 family about support for 5G networks.

Okay With the differences between the Chinese Honor 30S and the Russian Honor 30S figured out. Now the fun part. In mid-May in Europe, the Huawei P40 lite 5G smartphone appeared on sale.

</ p>

So here. Oddly enough, this very Huawei P40 lite 5G in all characteristics and in appearance is an exact copy of the Russian Honor 30S. Plus or minus the inscription on the copus, of course. The rest is one to one. Also with NFC, exactly the same amount of memory and so on. Given that the brands Huawei and Honor still try to distance themselves a little from each other, the decision to bring to Russia under the guise of Honor 30S something that was originally released as Huawei looks a bit non-trivial.

Finally, about the price. Officially, the cost of the Honor 30S Russia has been announced, it seems, has not yet been. Nevertheless, it is already informally listed on the website of some stores. And the price tag is also affixed there - ₽24990 ($ 358). For comparison, the Huawei P40 lite 5G in Europe is priced at € 399 (₽31,000, $ 444). The difference is quite significant, but so the Huawei brand has always been positioned a little more expensive than Honor.
