A rare article about Huawei or Honor does without stories about how evil guys deprived smartphones of these brands of the opportunity to work with Google. Today, as much as possible, we will try to avoid these conversations, it is better to discuss the long-awaited new product from Honor. The line is traditionally updated once a year and has very good characteristics for its price category. At least this was the case in past years. This time the smartphone is being released in new conditions, but given the attitude of the company, which I encountered personally, they have a chance of success. Now information has arrived about the release date and specs of the new Honor 30 and Honor 30 Pro. Let's discuss them already.
We are waiting for the premiere of the new one Honor.
When will Honor 30 Pro come out
Consider it a leak, but it’s too fat to actually be. The information appeared on the social network Weibo, and the Chinese actor Li Xian shared it. He posted a photo of himself, a smartphone, the name of the smartphone Honor on 30 and the date on April 15.
This makes it clear that the smartphone will be unveiled on this very day, one day after the launch of the OnePlus 8.
Here is the photo. It shows everything we know about the new smartphone.
Sometimes this information is actually almost a leak. For example, when the author was mistaken and posted it ahead of time. But there are cases when companies announced the release of their smartphones in this way. Especially when China is the main market in the current situation. Better to take advantage of the faces of popular actors in this country and promote the product through their social networks.
Specifications Honor 30 Pro
Unfortunately, it is not clear from the photo what the smartphone will look like, since it is almost completely covered with hands. In fact, only its color and a small part of the side wall are visible.
Based on this, we can say for sure that the smartphone will be made of glass and metal, like the recently released Huawei P40. The shape of the novelty will most likely be similar, since the open part of the case looks very much like the same part of the flagship from Huawei.
The color in the photo has some kind of pink-purple hues. This suggests that the company is committed to the idea of gradients that are widely used in their smartphones. In addition, we can say that the type of color application will be approximately the same as for Huawei P40. Let me remind you that it uses frosted glass. Thanks to the processing of the back wall, the color changes shades, and the body at a certain angle seems to be concave inward. You can't show it in the photo, but it looks very interesting in life.
Given the position of Honor 30 and Honor 30 Pro in the lineup, we can safely assume that it will run the top-end Kirin 990 processor with support for fifth-generation networks (5G.
This is the most advanced Kirin processor.
The camera should also be up to par. Most likely, they will not receive a module from Huawei P40 Pro +, but simpler modules of this family are provided to them. This means that we will almost certainly see a 50MP camera with a Sony IMX700 sensor. A key feature of this sensor is the ability to group pixels on a 4-in-1 basis. This achieves a total pixel size of 2.24 μm. Simply put, this is a lot and much more than all competitors. I've already told you what a camera should be for good shots. Pixel size is perhaps the most important indicator.
It is unlikely that the main modules Honor 30 and Honor 30 Pro will be very different, but the number of additional modules will definitely be different. Also, the younger model will not be equipped with some software and hardware exclusives of the older one. Both will definitely stick out of the case. Without this, nowhere and I have already explained why.
There is no doubt that the front camera will be placed in the cutout of the screen. The company has been using this solution for a long time and is unlikely to move away from it. It's too early to talk about the characteristics of the sensor, but the most likely option looks like a variant with a module from Huawei P40 with a resolution of 32 megapixels.
New phones Honor
In preparation for the launch of the Huawei P40 and its older siblings, the company has launched the Huawei P40 Lite. On the whole, this step is justified, since few doubted the release of a full-fledged P40, and no secrets were revealed by such a decision. Launching the “light” version is not something ordinary, but quite acceptable.
The guys and Honor did the same. They have already presented Honor 30S. So they traditionally denote a more affordable version of the flagship family. This time it was released a little earlier.
Honor 30S, like the expected new items, supports 5G, but works on the Kirin 820. It received a 6.5-inch IPS-screen with a resolution of Full HD +. The front camera is located in the hole of the screen, and on the back wall there are 4 sensors from 2 Mp to 64 Mp. Fast charging is supported, but Google services is not. The cost of new items in the 8/256 GB version is $ 380. Not so cheap.
It is a pity that the novelty cannot be greeted with a standing ovation. The times are not right.
Should I buy phones Huawei and Honor
The answer to this question is very simple. If you do not install applications very often, and Google services are an empty phrase for you, then it is definitely worth it.
There are already many important applications in the AppGallery brand store. The rest can be installed from the APK. This is not difficult at all, and our author Alexander Bogdanov has already told how to do it.
But Huawei and Honor are still very good from a technical point of view. These are advanced smartphones that perfectly “brew in their own juice”. The lack of support from Google, of course, is unpleasant, but given the aspiration of the Chinese company and its capabilities, it can create everything of its own. She already has office applications and even a voice assistant. Let's see what will happen next.
