HONOR announced the new HONOR 30 series, which includes the HONOR 30, HONOR 30 PRO, and HONOR 30 PRO+.
Available soon for the Chinese mainland market, the HONOR 30 series starts at RMB 2,999, RMB 3,999, and RMB 4,999, for the three models, respectively.
Through a combination of large sensor size, high resolution, light-sensitivity and zoom capabilities, the HONOR 30 series packs high imaging capabilities.
The HONOR 30 PRO+ features a 50-megapixel ultra-sensitive tri-lens system, including a 50-megapixel ultra-stable long-focus lens, a 50x periscope lens, and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. It is equipped with the 50-megapixel IMX700, a 1/1.28-inch sensor with a pixel size of 1.22μm. The sensor is 48.8 percent larger than that of the previous-generation IMX600. In addition, the IMX700 is equipped with the exclusive RYYB filter to further improve the sensor's photosensitive capability.
The HONOR 30 PRO+ also delivers 4K 60fps ultra-HD video capture, 1920fps super slow-motion capture at 720p resolution, and 60fps/960fps slow-motion capture at 1080p. With the use of OIS technology, the HONOR 30 PRO+'s camera also ensures clear videos in low-light conditions.
The HONOR 30 PRO comes with a 40-megapixel ultra-sensitive main camera, a 50x periscope ultra-stable long-focus lens, and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens.
The HONOR 30 adopts a 40-megapixel ultra-sensitive quad-lens camera system, including a 40-megapixel main lens, a 50x periscope handheld ultra-stable long-focus lens, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2-megapixel macro lens.
A new generation of periscope lenses are a highlight of the HONOR 30 series. The lens allows 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom, and up to 50x digital zoom. In addition, the HONOR 30's periscope zoom lens is equipped with a dual-structure OIS on the prism and lens components, ensuring stable shots. In addition to the dual-structure OIS, the HONOR 30 series uses technologies such as the AI long-focus super image stabilization algorithm, long-focus image quality enhancement algorithm, and picture-in-picture (PiP) to improve the stability by up to 300 percent, so you can get that shot from a long distance.
The HONOR 30 PRO and HONOR 30 PRO+ feature an OLED waterfall screen, which makes the front seem boundless. The HONOR 30 PRO+ also supports 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz high-frame-rate sampling.
Among the three models, the HONOR 30 PRO and HONOR 30 PRO+ are equipped with the 7nm 5G chipset Kirin 990 5G.
The HONOR 30 is powered by the latest 5G SoC, Kirin 985, also based on the 7nm manufacturing process. The HONOR 30 ranks among the top three in the ETH AI benchmark test, enabling more intelligent AI-based shooting scenarios and improves the shooting experience, with solutions including better image details, noise reduction, enhanced dynamic range, and performing real-time AI correction on image edges.
The HONOR 30 PRO and HONOR 30 PRO+ are equipped with the VC liquid cooling system and dual stereo speakers. The VC liquid cooling system improves heat dissipation, allowing the smartphone to run in high-performance mode for extended periods.
The HONOR 30 series comes with a 4000mAh battery and 40W fast charging, while HONOR 30 PRO+ adds to that with support for 27W wireless fast charging.
