Around two weeks after the official launch that took place on November 26th, the Honor V30 PRO finally went on sale today in China with a starting price of 3899 Yuan, around $550 at the current exchange rates. Well, as the title suggests, the smartphone did very well in its first sale, completely dominating the price range between 3000 and 5000 Yuan ($420 – $710) for 5G devices.
Honor V30 PRO Went on Sale in China, It’s the Best Selling 5G Phone
According to Chinese press, the great sale numbers were also due to the interest-free installments. Which meant users could get the phone for as low as 325 Yuan ($46) per month over a year.
That said, the Honor V30 PRO also brings some of the best hardware on the market for the price. This includes the powerful Huawei Kirin 990 5G , one of the industry’s most advanced CPU’s built on a 7nm + EUV manufacturing process and that integrates a 5G modem for the first time. It is also the world’s first mobile chip with more than 10.3 billion transistors.
Additionally, the Kirin 990 5G supports 5G Dual-Mode SA and NSA. This technology is more advanced compared to NSA-only 5G phones which – as Honor’s vice president pointed out some days back – will become obsolete by next year.
Other specs on the Honor V30 PRO include a large 6.57-inch display with dual punch-hole camera design within which we find 32MP and 8MP image sensors. Meanwhile on the back we find a total of three cameras; these include a 40MP main snapper, a 12MP ultra wide lens and an 8MP telefoto camera with OIS. On the handset we then have a 4100mAh capacity battery and support for 40W super fast charging or 27W wireless charging.
The Honor V30 PRO is currently available in an 8GB / 128GB variant costing 3899 yuan (around $550) and 8GB / 256GB going for 4199 yuan ($600).
