Honor, Huawei’s subsidiary, has officially announced V30 and V30 Pro. However, the launch is only happening in China for now. The V series is usually released globally as the View series. Since Huawei phones are still not allowed to use Google services, it is unclear as to when the phone will be released worldwide.
The V30 has a 6.57-inch 1080p screen with a double hole-punch design on the top-left. The screen is almost bezel-less and the cut-out contains a 32-megapixel camera and the 8-megapixel wide-angle selfie camera. Honor’s president, George Zhao, says that the finish on the device is “the world’s first aurora nano texture”. However, until the phone gets more hand-on reviews, we can’t know for sure if the claim is true or not.
The V30 Pro comes with a 4,200mAh battery, that offers a 40W quick charge and 27W wireless charging. The V30 loses the wireless charging, and only offers a 40W fast charging with a 4100mAh battery. Honor claims that that the 40W can charge 70% in 30 minutes and the 27W will reach 52% in 30 minutes.
Both models use Huawei’s latest Kirin 990 processor and are 5G compatible. They also both come with wide, ultrawide, and telephoto lenses. Although, the ultrawide lens is 12 megapixels in the Pro model and only 8 megapixels in the regular version. Otherwise, the phones have 40 megapixels primary camera and 8 megapixels telephoto lens.

The V30 Pro is priced at ¥ 3,899 (~$550) for the 8GB + 128GB version, whereas the 8GB + 256GB costs ¥ 4,199 ($600). Pre-orders are now open, and in China, the phone’s first sale will start on December 5th. With this in mind, if you live outside of China, you should probably wait for the official global announcement of Honor V30 and V30 Pro.
