Recently, a leak that suggests Honor will follow Huawei's lead in adding a Pro+ variant to its 2020 flagship sprung. Now, a new Geekbench listing that may be for this very phone has appeared. It shows that the "Plus" model may run on the Kirin 990 SoC.
Honor is to launch its latest 30 series of smartphones on April 15, 2020. Until very recently, it was assumed the event would simply introduce direct replacements for the 20 and 20 Pro, albeit with 5G upgrades. However, it now appears there may be 3 variants ready to take this stage. The 'new' one may be called the Honor 30 Pro+, as the higher-end Huawei flagship is now called the P40 Pro+.
This phone is thought to have an internal moniker of Huawei EBG-AN10. Virtually on-cue, the same has appeared on the Geekbench 4 database. It is depicted as running Android 10 and having 8GB of RAM. Furthermore, its SoC has attributes matching those of the premium-grade Kirin 990 chipset. Going with the rumors surrounding it thus far, this of course may also be the 5G variant of the same.
The Honor 30 line-up is now also believed to be associated with an additional processor (the Kirin 985) and 2 additional model numbers (EBG-AN00 and EBG-TN00). Interestingly, none of these may be a non-Pro variant, hinting at the possibility of a 4G/LTE-only model among this series. However, we will have to wait for its official live-stream to find out for sure.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
