Honor 30, Honor 30 Pro, and Honor 30S touted to bring some Huawei P40 goodness to the masses
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.
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
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.
