The Honor V30 will be the successor to last year's Honor V20, and will—hopefully—be rebranded as the View 30 for international markets. The V30 has been sighted for the first time, giving us our first look at what will be an affordable sibling to the Huawei Mate 30.

Huawei launched its biggest premium phones of the year, the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro last week. The company's high-value sub-brand, Honor, usually releases a toned-down version of the Mate phones in the form of the Honor View series, and we could be set for the launch of the next phone in that lineup.

An image of the Honor View 30 has just surfaced, giving us our first look at what will be the first affordable Kirin 990-powered device. Going by the image, the View 30 will sport a pill, just like the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.  It's on the opposite side of the display, though. The View 20 was one of the first phones to feature the punch-hole, and a pill is just an extension of that design factor. 

Like the S10+ (buy S10+ Unlocked now at Amazon), the View 30 will sport two selfie sensors. We're no sure what the secondary sensor will be. An ultra-wide angle lens like the LG V40 or Pixel 3, or a ToF sensor like the S10+?

The top bezels on the View 30 are definitely slimmer than on its predecessor, the  View 20. Same goes for the chin; side bezels are also reduced, with the View 30 opting for a far more curved edge. It's not quite on the level of the Mate 30, though, and is closer to the LG V40's.
