Following the launching of the latest P-series by its parent company Huawei a week ago, Honor has unwrapped the Honor 30S. The Honor 30S comes with some impressive specs, premium glass and aluminum design and dual-mode 5G thanks to the new Kirin 820 5G chipset.

The Honor 30S is built around a 6.5-inch FHD+ IPS display with a punch-hole cutout in the top left corner for the 16MP selfie camera. The right-hand-side houses the capacitive fingerprint scanner.

At the back sits a four-camera array housed in a square setup. There’s a 64MP main sensor, an 8MP telephoto module with 3x optical and up to 20x hybrid zoom, an 8MP ultrawide snapper and a 2MP depth helper.

The phone is powered by Kirin 820 5G chipset which packs an eight-core architecture with four ARM-Cortex A55 cores clocked at 1.84GHz alongside four ARM-A76 cores with varying clock speeds. The GPU department is covered by the six-core Mali-G57 and there’s also the Kirin ISP 5.0 image signal processor which is touted to bring flagship-level performance and advanced noise reduction.

Talking about the software section, it comes with Magic UI 3.1.1 based on Android 10 without GMS services. The battery comes in at 4,000 mAh and sports 40W wired fast charging.
