Announcement: Honor 30 - the younger flagship

Long forgotten times when the flagship familyknew only the change of generations, and any smartphone related to it could automatically be considered the best of the best. Now the flagships go in pairs. In some cases, three each. Huawei decided not to trifle, so the announcement of a new generation of main smartphones of the Honor brand introduced three mega-devices to the public: Honor 30, Honor 30 Pro and Honor 30 Pro +. And this is great because it gives a wide range of prices - the initial one is equivalent to $ 425 (₽31200). Thumbs up for the flagship.

Based on the characteristics, they can be divided into twosubgroups: Honor 30 with its flat screen and a completely new, previously never used Kirin 985 5G chipset - in the blue corner, Honor 30 Pro and Honor 30 Pro +, combined by a common appearance and a single Kirin 990 5G platform - in red.

The Honor 30 Pro and Honor 30 Pro +, of course, are much cooler, but the Honor 30 doesn’t get so deep into the customer’s pocket, which, with all its other characteristics, makes the model extremely interesting.

Honor 30 features an ordinary-looking screen - nobends, easily 6.53 ″ OLED panel with fullHD + resolution. A fingerprint scanner is integrated under the screen, and a 32-megapixel camera for taking selfies is embedded in the upper left corner. Single. Everything is more or less standard.

The second noticeable difference with the elders is anotherchipset. By number - younger. In fact - almost equal in power according to the test results and also having a 5G modem. The only significant difference so far noted between
Pro and non-Pro - the Honor 30 lacks support for the LTE B20 range, but this will probably be fixed by the time the Honor 30 officially enters the Russian market, where this range is relevant.

The Honor 30 supports WiFi 5, while its older brothers support WiFi 5. Another click on the younger nose is UCB Type C 2.0 instead of 3.1.

Varieties of the Honor 30 include options with 6 and 8 GB of RAM and 128 and 256 GB of storage. The expansion options of the built-in memory are not provided.

The main Honor 30 photoblock is heavily loaded - there are four cameras.

  • The ultra-sensitive Sony IMX600 40 MP with a large 1 / 1.7 ″ RYYB sensor, capable of combining 4 pixels into one, giving you 2 microns in size.
  • 8 MP wide-angle
  • 8 megapixel telephoto with its own optical stabilization system, thanks to which it provides 5x optical zoom and 10x hybrid
  • 2 MP macro

The older cameras on the rear panel are smaller, there is no macro. Sets are slightly different.

Honor 30 is powered by a 4000 mAh battery, 40 watts fast charging is supported. There is no wireless charging, but Honor 30 Pro didn’t get it, only Honor 30 Pro + has it.

NFC support is there.

The main and most important difference of the Honor 30 is its humane price.

Varieties:

6 GB + 128 GB - ¥ 2999 (₽31100, $ 425)
8 GB + 128 GB - ¥ 3199 (₽33200, $ 453)
