Honor on Tuesday launched the View 30 and View 30 Pro phones at an event in Beijing. The 5G phones are a follow-up to and continue to offer impressive tech at a mid-range price. The Huawei sub-brand said the phones will be available in China first, and more markets next year.
Both phones feature a punch hole cutout in their 6.57-inch displays that house a 32-megapixel selfie camera and a 8-megapixel wide angle camera. The View 30 Pro has a triple rear-camera setup with a 40-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel super wide angle camera and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera. The View 30 has a similar rear setup, except with an 8-megapixel wide angle camera.
For 5G support, the View 30 Pro uses Huawei's homegrown, while the View 30 uses a standard Kirin 990 plus a separate Barong 5000 5G modem. The phones come in four colors -- ocean blue, galaxy black, Icelandic frost and sunrise orange -- with something called an "aurora nano texture."
The View 30 is available in China now, starting at 3,299 yuan (about $469 and €425). The View 30 Pro will be available for preorder in China on Dec. 5 starting at 3,899 yuan (around $554 and €503). Honor said the phones will comes to more markets in the first quarter of next year but didn't offer specifics.
