Not so long ago, the premiere of Honor 60 and Honor 60 Pro took place, which hastened to be considered the latest innovations of the company this year. But at the end of the year, the former Huawei sub-brand has another launch – the Honor X30. The company officially announced today that it intends to unveil the model on December 16th.
In a post, Honor highlighted that the X line is one of the most successful in its lineup and has about 90 million users. And now the company is ready to show a novelty within this series. The company did not share details about the Honor X30 itself.
It is known that the smartphone should become an affordable device and will receive a Snapdragon 695 chipset, which is made using a 6-nanometer process technology, has Kryo 660 computing cores and an Adreno 619 graphics subsystem. The smartphone is also credited with a triple rear camera with a 48-megapixel main module and a couple of useless sensors resolution of 2 megapixels each.
That’s all there is to know about the Honor X30. But there is still time before the announcement and insiders can tell more about the new product before its announcement. Like the company itself, it can share details about the smartphone.
Honor ranked third in China in smartphone sales – ahead of Xiaomi and Apple
Independent from Huawei, Honor is rapidly increasing sales of its smartphones in China. According to Counterpoint Research, third-quarter shipment volumes ranked the vendor as the third most successful smartphone vendor in the country.
Honor sold 96% more smartphones in the third quarter than in the previous quarter. As a result, the company won a 15% share in the Chinese gadget market; right after Vivo and Oppo (23% and 20%, respectively) according to analyst Counterpoint Research. Surprisingly, Xiaomi, extremely popular outside of China, in the home market is content with only fourth place; and Apple closes the top five.
Initially, Honor was a sub-brand of Huawei; under which devices of the budget and mid-range, as well as models for the youth audience, were produced. This year Huawei sold it to a consortium of companies that includes the authorities of the rapidly developing economic center – the city of Shenzhen. Huawei itself now occupies only 8% of the Chinese market; whereas a year ago it was in the lead with 30%.
The self-sufficient company resumed promoting its products in China; and now it sells rather expensive models, including the Magic3 Pro + smartphone introduced in August, which cost about $ 1250.
We also add that the total quarterly sales of smartphones in the Middle Kingdom fell by 9% in comparison with the previous year.
