Huawei’s sub-brand Honor is reportedly planning to launch its new series later this month in China. According to rumors, the new series is going to be the Honor 30 and meanwhile, GSMArena has managed to obtain a render of one of the devices in the series. This is a better-looking render compared to what previously got leaked.
According to the leaked render, the alleged Honor 30s has the design similar to the V30 phone. It has quad rear cameras, all housed in a rectangular module. A close inspection of the image also reveals a sensor sitting next to the fourth camera.
The same device called the Honor 30s has apparently stopped at the Chinese 3C certification as well. The listing reveals the device will support 40W fast-charging, 10V at 4A. It will be a 5G-connected phone and feature Kirin 820 processor. Additionally, the render shows the Honor 30s has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner as well, just like what the Honor 20s had one.
A few days back, a promo of Honor 30s was also spotted on the label of a soft drink bottle in China, along with a confirmation that it will support 5G networks.
It is unknown at what price the Honor 30s will launch. We look forward to hearing more about the device in the coming days as the said launch is near.
