Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has launched the Honor 30i smartphone in Russia. This is actually just the rebadged version of the Honor 20 Lite Youth Edition that the manufacturer brought for China in October last year. So, the new Honor 30i includes the same set of specifications and shares the same design as well.
The Honor 30i holds triple rear cameras, all vertically aligned. There is a teardrop-style notch on the display that carries 16MP. On the back, the smartphone features a 48MP main snapper with f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide lens with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.0 aperture.
It is also powered by the same in-house Kirin 710F processor with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage with an option to expand it further using a microSD card. It runs Magic UI 3.1 based on Android 10 OS, compared to EMUI 9.1 based on Android 9 on China-only Honor 20 Lite.
