The Honor V30 will be a flagship that can challenge even the Mate 30. Some promo photos of the device have surfaced on Weibo, showing a square camera on the back reminiscent of the Mate 20. The rear camera on the back is more interesting, the main sensor is said to be 60MP. Not 64MP, indicating that this is a sensor we haven't seen yet (it's similar to the Huawei flagships, which use 40MP instead of 48MP sensors like the rest of the industry). The Honor V30 Pro will have a bigger battery with faster charging to boot – 4,200mAh and 40W SuperCharge in addition to 15W wireless charging. The V30 will get 4,000mAh and 22.5W SuperCharge instead, no wireless charging.
One of our members had Gigabit (1000Mbps) Internet installed at their residence. On a wired Ethernet connection, they measured download speeds at 600Mbps and upload at 800Mbps, while wireless (Wi-Fi) showed 500Mbps and 700Mbps, respectively. According to our members, the download speeds are normal, but the upload speed is better than usual. To get better speeds, one of the offered solutions was to get an 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) router. Those, unfortunately, are still just making it to market, and can command $500 or more.
The mini laptop is powered by a 7-watt, 14nm quad-core processor with a base CPU speed of 1 GHz and a max turbo speed of 4 GHz. It's unclear what that will mean in terms of a real-world performance boost over previous-gen mini-laptops which typically topped out at 5 watt Intel Core i7-8500Y dual-core chips with 1.5 GHz and 4.2 GHz boost speeds.
Smartphone cameras have gotten good enough to replace standalone point-and-shoot cameras for many users. In recent years phone makers have added features like telephoto zoom lenses and support for bokeh-style effects. Now Motorola is bringing macro photography to its latest smartphone.
