More on Honor V30
The upcoming Honor V30 will mark the beginning of a new era for Honor, as it will be the first-ever Honor smartphone with next-gen high-speed 5G connectivity. The news was recently confirmed on Chinese social media network Weibo by Zhao Ming himself, who’s the President of Honor. Not only did Ming announce that the upcoming phone will have 5G connectivity, but it will also feature a full 5G SA (standalone) as well as the NSA (non-standalone) network. In other words, the V30 will support and run on both 4G infrastructure, as well as the next-generation 5G infrastructure.
What else could the Honor V30 have?
The Honor V30 will be the first Honor device to come with 5G connectivity. The phone will be the latest addition to Honor’s View20 series that was launched last year, in succession to Honor V20. As of now, the phone’s features and specifications remain secret, with no word on the matter from Honor. However, rumors suggest that the V30 is likely to be powered by Kirin 990, Huawei’s flagship SoC that’s going to launch soon.
However, V30 will not be the first commercially launched 5G smartphone from Huawei. The Huawei Mate 20 X, which was launched recently, has been getting immense positive response from users around the world. So far, the phone is being sold in its home country China, but its set to launch in other countries as well, soon.
