Since May, Honor has been stealing the headlines with its new Honor 30 Youth Edition 5G smartphone, and now it finally has an official launch date.
As per the Honor Weibo official account, the Chinese company is going to launch its new Honor 30 Youth Edition 5G on Thursday, July 2. Apart from that, they will also unveil the Honor X10 Max on the same date. Some reports say that this smartphone will carry Honor 30 Lite 5G moniker in overseas markets. However, it probably won’t be launched in global markets on the same date as China.
The poster of this new smartphone shows that it has two distinct colorways, both featuring a gradient finish. It also confirms that the phone comes with a triple-camera array and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The triple-camera setup will have a 48MP main camera and the other two will probably be an 8MP ultra-wide unit and a 2MP sensor for macro shots or depth reading. For selfies, there is a 16MP selfie snapper in the front.
As per the leaks, the handset will be powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 800 chipset. This is an octa-core CPU powered by 4x Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. The device will come with a 6.5-inch display with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels and a refresh rate of 90Hz. The handset runs on Android 10 with MagicUI 3.1 interface onboard. Moreover, the smartphone will also carry a 4,000mAh battery with support for up to 22.5W fast-charging.
The Honor 30 Youth Edition 5G is expected to be announced outside China but as the Honor 30 Lite 5G. The launch should happen after its debut in China.
