Honor, a subdivision of Huawei, today announced its top-of-the-range smartphone, the Honor 30 Pro+, it’s the best smartphone from the Honor brand until now.
We are talking about a smartphone with a curved AMOLED panel of 6.57 inches with a resolution Full HD+ at 90Hz and a 180 Hz touch sampling alongside a double-hole in the screen to host a dual selfie camera with a main 32 megapixels and 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensors. Obviously, under the screen, we have the fingerprint reader.

On a hardware level, we have Huawei’s top-of-the-range SoC, the HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G 7nm SoC (2x Cortex-A76 @ 2.86 GHz + Cortex-A76 @ 2.36 GHz + 4x Cortex-A55 @ 1.95 GHz + GPU Mali-G76 MP16 ). It’s paired with 8GB/12GB of LPDDR4X RAM along with 256GB of storage. We continue with a 4000 mAh capacity battery with a 40W fast wired charge and 27W wireless fast charge. Now we are going to its strong point, the photographic section.
The Honor 30 Pro+ integrates into its back configuration a quad rear camera. As a main sensor we have the Sony IMX700 1/1.28” of 50 megapixels with autofocus PDAF, laser and OIS. It is supported by an 8MP sensor in the form of a periscope that allows an Optical zoom of 5x magnification (50x magnification with hybrid zoom). In addition, we have the 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, and a depth sensor could not be missing. The device allows capturing images in RAW format with AI activated at 4K@60 FPS.
This configuration has allowed it to sneak second in the DxOMark benchmark, thus falling behind the Huawei P40 Pro, but surpassing other devices such as the Oppo Find X2 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro or the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G. The device arrives in China in black, green and silver at a local price in exchange for $700 for its 8GB/256GB version, and $780 for the 12GB/256GB version.
