Honor V30 with 5G and dual selfie cameras dropping on Nov 26

HUAWEI is barred from using Google services due to the ongoing trade war with the US. However, that didn’t deter the company from launching the Mate 30 series and Enjoy 10 lineup of smartphones lately. Now HUAWEI’s sub-brand Honor is also set to unveil the Honor V30 in China on November 26.

The Honor V30 is the successor to the Honor V20 that arrived last year with a punch-hole camera and 48MP triple camera setup on the back. This time the Honor V30 is officially teased with having two punch-hole cut-outs on the top-left portion of the front panel- that is to say, a certain dual selfie camera setup for the phone.

The teaser video outed by Honor also confirms that the Honor V30 will tack on a triple-camera setup on the rear with an LED flash. As of now, it is not known what sensor the Honor V30 will make use of, but past rumors have suggested a 60MP primary camera on the back.

Honor CEO George Zhao confirmed a Camera matrix feature for the V30 a few days ago though he didn’t specify what exact functionality this new feature will bring to the table. The company, however, has gone on to release a camera sample of the phone, which looks crisp and well detailed.

The Honor V30 is already confirmed to be equipped with 5G. Ahead of the launch, the promotional material of the phone has popped up in China touting that 5G support.

Amongst other things, the Honor V30 is rumored to come with the Kirin 990 SoC which is built on 7nm FinFET process bringing 10% boost in performance over its predecessor. A 4,000mAh battery armed with 22.5W SuperCharge support is expected to lit the smartphone.

The other specs, as well as the pricing details of the Honor V30, are still shrouded in mystery. But judging by the fact that the company has started teasing the phone more frequently of late, more information on the upcoming smartphone will surface soon.

Previous rumors have suggested that a Pro version of the Honor V30 is also on the cards. But for now the company has only teased the vanilla Honor V30 for an unveil in Beijing on November 26.

Considering the previous terminology of the Honor V-series of smartphones outside China, the Honor V30 will most likely make it to the international market rebranded as the Honor View 30.

Meanwhile, HUAWEI said that its full-fledged Harmony OS mobile operating system would be ready to launch in the next six to nine months if the ban is not lifted from its working with Google. To that end, HUAWEI is pulling out all the stops to persuade developers around the world to build apps on HUAWEI Mobile Services (HMS) for creating a robust ecosystem of its own.
