Honor is expected to introduce upgrades to its lineup today, which includes the Honor 30, 30 Pro, and the 30S. The new Honor lineup is expected to bring some of the Huawei P40 features such as the 50 MP Sony IMX 7xx sensor and 40W fast charging. The Honor 30S launch will also see the introduction of the Kirin 820 5G SoC, which was shown to dominate the mid-range segment in leaked benchmarks.

Huawei announced its P40 series last week focused heavily on camera performance while also adding a few niceties such as 40W wireless charging in the P40 Pro Plus. As is usually the norm, Honor phones are also expected to get some of the features of the P40 series and new leaks further confirm this fact. We are now getting to know specs and design of the upcoming Honor 30 and Honor 30S.

Honor 30

The Honor 30 will inherit much of the Huawei P40's specs including the Kirin 990 5G processor and the 50 MP Sony IMX 7xx camera (with smaller pixel size and 4-in-1 pixel binning). The Honor 30 will also sport a 12 MP ultra-wide camera with a 2.8 micron pixel size and an 8 MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. The Honor 30 will also sport the 40W fast charging of the P40 but is 

Honor 30S

The Honor 30S will see the introduction of the Kirin 820 5G chipset, which is an upgrade of last year's Kirin 810. Early AnTuTu leaks have shown the Kirin 820 to have leads over the Kirin 980, Snapdragon 765G, and the Exynos 980. In Geekbench, the Kirin 820 was even found to be more or less on par with the Snapdragon 855 indicating a near-flagship performance. 

The Kirin 820 SoC aside, the Honor 30S will sport a 64 MP primary camera and a 3x zoom camera along with support for 40W wired charging. 

Honor 30 Pro

Apart from the 30 and 30S, Honor is also expected to introduce a Pro version as evidenced by recent photograph of the phone being used in subway in China. Not much is known about the Honor 30 Pro, but it is expected to sport the same specs as the Honor 30 with a few extras such as a larger 1/1.3-inch 50 MP camera sensor and a 90 Hz display.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
