Just a day before March ends, the Chinese smartphone brand Honor launches a new device — the Honor 30S. This latest Honor handset promises impressive specs despite being the cheapest member of the Honor 30 series.
To start, the new Honor 30S uses a powerful midrange chipset with Kirin 820 5G. The said processor allows the device to support dual-5G. Moreover, it has 8GB of RAM with either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. Likewise, the GPU-department is also top-notch as it uses a six-core Mali G57 and Kirin ISP 5.0 for improved performance and noise reduction.
As expected, the device lacks Google Mobile Services despite running under Android 10 and its own Magic UI 3.1.1 OS.

In terms of display, the Honor 30S has a 6.5-inch FHD+ IPS screen with a punch-hole design at the upper left corner. While on the right side of the phone is a capacitive fingerprint scanner.
At the back, is a rectangular platform for the quad-camera setup. It has a 64-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, an 8-megapixels camera for ultra-wide photos and 2-megapixel as a depth sensor.
On the other hand, the phone uses premium glass and aluminum material for its built. There is also a 4,000mAh battery that supports 40W fast charging.
The Honor 30S comes in blue, black, green and gradient color variants. The starting price is CNY2,399 (~Php17,200) for the 8GB/128GB variant, while the 8GB/256GB retails for CNY2,699 (~Php19,400).
No word on the availability and pricing in the Philippines. So, better stay tuned to be updated.
