Honor unveils its Honor 30S and confirms the date of presentation of the Honor 30/30 Pro

Just over a month after announcing the global launch of its View 30 Pro and its 9X Pro, Honor lifts the veil on the most accessible smartphone of its new Honor 30 range. Called Honor 30S, the new mid-range terminal range of the Chinese brand takes the design of the Huawei P40 but makes some concessions here and there to be in the nails.

Punched screen, quadruple photo sensor and 40W fast charge for the Honor 30S

As said above, the Honor 30S displays the same look as the Huawei P40 with a punched screen on the front and a rectangular photo block on the back. We are here on a 6.5 inch panel which is based on LCD technology and which has a definition of 1800 x 2400 pixels. The fingerprint reader takes place on one of the slices rather than under the screen.

Under the hood, the Honor 30S offers a Kirin 820 chip which succeeds the Honor 9X Pro 810. It is associated with 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal memory expandable via Nano Memory Card, Huawei’s proprietary format. You will not be surprised to learn that the Honor 30S will be delivered without Google services and the Play Store.

Honor puts the package on the photo with four sensors housed in a rectangular block on the back of its Honor 30S. On the menu, we find:

  • A 64-megapixel sensor with a wide-angle lens opening to f / 1.8
  • An 8 megapixel sensor with an ultra wide angle lens opening to f / 2.4
  • An 8 megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens opening to f / 2.4
  • A 2 megapixel sensor dedicated to macro with an aperture at f / 2.4

The telephoto lens would allow you to enjoy an optical zoom up to x3, a hybrid zoom up to x5 and a digital zoom up to x20. At the front, the Honor 30S houses in its punch a 16 megapixel (f / 2.0) sensor.

To power everything, Honor has integrated on its smartphone a 4000 mAh battery and just like the Huawei P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro +, the Honor 30S supports a fast charge with a power of 40W.

Honor’s new smartphone will be available on April 7 in China. Count 2399 Yuan (309 euros HT) for the 128 GB version and 2699 Yuan (348 euros HT) for the 256 GB version. For the moment, no marketing of this phone is planned in France.

The Honor 30 and Honor 30 Pro will be presented on April 15

It was on the Chinese social network Weibo that Honor announced the date of presentation in China of the other members of its range and it will be for April 15. The brand has chosen actor Li Xian, who poses with a smartphone in his hands, as its ambassador. Honor 30 or Honor 30 Pro? Impossible to guess all the more since the actor only exhibits a small part of the back of this terminal.
