Honor 30 Pro Spotted in Real-life Images; Features a Curved Display and Twin Selfie Cameras

As many of our readers know, Honor’s latest Honor 30 series is in the works. But ahead of its official release, the ‘Pro’ edition of the Honor 30 family has been spotted in live subway shots – as is customary with most real-life images of upcoming smartphones.

The unit seen in the photos is likely a testing prototype, and it shares quite a few design similarities with the Huawei P40 Pro that was announced yesterday. You’re looking at a similar curved profile and a pill-shaped cutout for the phone’s twin-selfie-camera but at an affordable Huawei price tag.

The rear shell of the device can’t be seen in the live images, but earlier reports point to a triple camera setup and a Kirin 990 chipset with support for 5G connectivity. The same platform powers the standard Honor 30 as well, while the ‘Lite’ edition will run on a Kirin 820 5G chipset.  The in-house developed SoC features a 7nm wafer and is optimized for gaming.

On a similar note, the screen allegedly supports a 90Hz refresh rate, which should translate into a smoother UI. Based on last year’s Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro, we speculate the build to be camera-centric, but additional details surrounding the specifications are thin on the ground.

Honor has yet to reveal a launch schedule for the Honor 30 trio, but the phone leaker @RODENT950 claims that it will be unveiled in April at some amazing Huawei prices. And that a freshly-minted high-end tablet dubbed Honor MagicPad will also be making an appearance at the event. If that is indeed the case, Honor should start teasing the details in the weeks that follow.
