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.
