Honor has launched a low-cost 5G smartphone Honor Play 30M in China (in the original, the name is written in hieroglyphs - 荣耀畅玩30M).

Honor Play 30M

Nothing fundamentally new. A light modification of the Honor Play 30 smartphone announced in the spring. We added a depth sensor and a fingerprint scanner, changed the set of colors. The appearance of the island of cameras has slightly changed. Everything else is identical. Iron, screen, battery, case.

By the way, about the body. Cases are gradually becoming as standard as anything else �Steel. Here is exactly the same case as in Play 30 / Play 30M, used in at least four more smartphones from Honor - Play 6C, X8 5G, X6, X6s. At the same time, the devices do not look identical outwardly - due to a slightly different arrangement of cameras and colors. However, they all have the same body. Accurate to fractions of a millimeter.

About the characteristics.

Quite rare chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 480+. (Light upgrade of Qualcomm Snapdragon 480, of course). In AnTuTu, we are waiting for around three hundred thousand points.

Memory. 6 GB operational, 128 GB permanent. Memory card supportThere are.

Low resolution screen, only 720x1600 (270 ppi). And no increased refresh rate. Diagonal standard, 6.5" (102 cm²).

The battery is capacious, 5000 mAh, but there is no fast charging. Only unconvincing 10 W.

The cameras are quite simple. 5 MP front and 13+2 MP rear.

What's good is dual-band Wi-Fi, Type-C, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

What's bad is that there is no NFC module.

¥1299 (₽11000, $176) at launch.
