Many smartphone giants such as Samsung, Apple, Huawei, and other Chinese brands are striving hard to hold a meaningful position in the world of smartphones and grab as many customers as possible. Impressively, Honor isn’t far behind in this race as back in April, we got our hands on Honor 30 Pro in Australia alongside its siblings called Honor 30 and Honor 30 Plus.
The Honor 30 Pro is indeed a great smartphone if we talk about the overall performance, camera, and other specifications. However, it doesn’t support any Google Play services and relies entirely on its own solution. A number of features that will grab your attention include a 6.57-inches OLED display, 8GB of RAM, Quad-camera configuration, Kirin 990 5G Chipset, and a 4000mAh battery.
Design & Display
The Honor 30 Pro comes with a regular shape that is identical to Huawei’s flagship devices. The phone measures 160.3 x 73.6 x 8.4 mm in dimension and weighs 186 grams only. The rear panel also looks smooth with a quad-camera configuration and the brand’s logo. It has water and dustproof IP54 certification and multiple colour options to choose from.
On the front, there is an OLED type display with 16 million colours. It’s 6.57-inches in size with a maximum resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, whereas the highest pixel density is 392 PPI. Moreover, it reaches an 88.33% screen-to-body ratio, and bezels around the display are meaningfully less.
Software & Hardware
The Honor 30 Pro is powered by the highest quality HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G Chipset with Mali-G76 MP16 GPU for graphics and gaming without any glitches. Furthermore, you will get smooth multitasking too – thanks to its 8GB of RAM that comes with both 128GB and 256GB of ROMs. Both variants sport a microSD card slot so that you can increase the memory further with ease. It runs on the Android 10 operating system with Magic UI 3.0 without Google Play Services.
The Honor 30 Pro is blessed by powerful and versatile camera lenses on the back. The whole quad-camera setup consists of a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP periscope telephoto, 16MP ultrawide, and a 2MP depth camera lens. Furthermore, it takes your photography to new heights with its multiple features such as Panorama, HDR, Touch to Focus, Autofocus, and more. A 4K video recording option is available too at 30fps. On the front, there is a dual punch-hole camera with 32MP and 8MP camera lenses for outstanding selfies and video calls.
Battery & Others
The 4000mAh non-removable battery inside Honor 30 Pro in Australia promises enough juice for all-day-long activities. And if you run out of battery, its 40W fast-charging has got you covered. Other features include a fingerprint scanner that is embedded into the display and a bunch of connectivity options such as Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth, GPS, Hotspot, and USB Type-C 3.0.
Release Date & Price
After getting separated from its parent company Huawei, Honor has now launched a wide range of impressive and dazzlingly designed phones such as the Honor 30 Pro with its many siblings. The phone arrived on shelves in China back in April 2021 and has now started landing in stores in other parts of the world, including Australia and New Zealand. Regarding Honor 30 Pro Prices in Australia, it ranges from AU$899 to AU$1059 with an innovative curved-display design and a wide range of fully-baked internal components.
