The physical aspect of these mobiles is very striking. Although they look very much like the Huawei models, Honor wanted to give them a more modern touch with a logo that occupies a large part of the back. The camera module is in the upper area, with a rectangular shape. It protrudes slightly from the edge. The back, besides having curved edges, has different glossy finishes, but in a matt texture. The front is panoramic, with a double curvature quite noticeable on the two sides. The aluminum bezels, which have a smooth finish on the top and bottom, are striking. In this case, they remind us of the Huawei P30 Pro.

Huawei P30

The same Camera as the Huawei P40 Pro

Honor has opted for the camera in their new Honor 30. It’s the same thing Huawei did just a few weeks ago when they announced the P40. The Honor 30 Pro and 30 Pro Plus have the same sensors as the Huawei P40 Pro. The main camera is a 40 MP, 50-megapixel lens on the Pro+ model. It is followed by a second ultra-wide-angle camera with 16-megapixel resolution. These Honor 30 also have a periscope lens. Yes, again, the same as the Huawei P40 Pro. A telephoto sensor capable of 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid (optical-digital mix) and up to 50x digital zoom. DxoMark, a portal specialized in photo analysis, has already been able to test the camera of the Honor 30 Pro+, the most powerful model. The result is practically identical to that of the Huawei P40 Pro, with a difference of 3 points in the final score.

As for the front camera. Again, the same resolution: 32-megapixel sensor on the Honor 30 Pro and 30 Pro+ models, with a depth lens focused on the facial unlocking. The camera configuration of the Honor 30 is different from these two models but has not yet been confirmed.

The display also does not show any major differences. The Honor 30 Pro and 30 Pro+ have the same size and resolution: a 6.58-inch OLED panel with QHD+ resolution. The only difference is that only the Pro Plus model has a refresh rate of 90 Hz, the other works at 60 Hz. Also, the Honor 30 is slightly more compact, with a 6.53-inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution.

Honor uses the same Processor as Huawei P40 Pro and Huawei P30 Pro

In performance, again similarities to the Huawei P40 Pro: Kirin 990 processor in the Honor 30 Pro and 30 Pro+, with a RAM configuration of 8 and 12 GB and 128 or 256 GB of internal memory respectively. The Honor 30 does not share the same processor: the company has chosen a Kirin 985 chip. That is last year’s high-end chip and the one incorporated in the Huawei P30 Pro. In this case, accompanied by versions of 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage. As for battery life, the Honor 30 Pro and Honor 30 Pro+ models have 4,000 mAh. They are compatible with the 40W fast charge and have wireless charging. The battery details for the Honor 30 have not yet been disclosed.
