Huawei’s Honor is preparing a set of new smartphone launches for July. First of all, we have a brand new Honor X10 Max, for lovers of big displays, we’ll also have a new Honor X10 Pro, and therefore, the Honor X10 series will be complete. However, the X10 series isn’t the only smartphone lineup getting bigger next month. Honor will also unveil a new handset dubbed Honor 30 Youth Edition 5G. The phone has been stealing the headlines since May, and now it finally has an official launch date.
According to Honor Weibo official account, the Honor 30 Youth Edition 5G will be launched on Thursday, July 2. That’s the same date when the company will unveil the Honor X10 Max. We also know that this smartphone will carry Honor 30 Lite 5G moniker in overseas markets. However, it probably won’t be launched in Global markets in the same date as China.
Honor’s poster shows the smartphone in two distinct colorways, both featuring a gradient finish. It also confirms the presence of a triple-camera array on the Honor 30 Youth and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. Apparently, the triple-camera array will carry a 48 main camera, while the other two will probably be an 8MP ultra-wide unit and a 2MP sensor for macro shots or depth reading. Up to the front, the handset will have a 16MP selfie snapper.
