Photo Strange Chinese under-announcement. ZTE Voyage 30畅行版

In China, without noise and dust, a smartphone called 中兴远航30畅行版 appeared on sale. Hieroglyphs that go up to the number 30 are usually translated into English as ZTE Voyage. Those. we get ZTE Voyage 30畅行版. But with the other three hieroglyphs, I got confused.

  • Yandex translator suggests translating this as "Smooth Travel Edition".
  • Google Translate insists on "Express Edition".
  • ChatGPT has its own version - "Enjoyment Edition".

I don't know. Which option do you like best?

Now about relatives. It's also quite confusing here. Because at the end of the summer of 2022�� The ZTE Voyage 30S smartphone was also announced in China, which, apparently, is an exact copy of our new smartphone. Only Voyage 30S has 4, 6 or 8 GB of RAM, while the newbie only has either 4 or 8 GB. And the color of the case is only the only one against the three colors of the 30S.

We also have the original ZTE Voyage 30 (which is sold in Europe under the name ZTE Blade A72 5G) in relatives. It is almost the same, only the chipset is different, more trivial - MediaTek Dimensity 700.

Yes, the chipset of our ZTE Voyage 30 Something Edition is rare. Unisoc T760. X�It was announced in 2021, but I still didn’t have performance statistics, and still don’t. Because, except in purely Chinese smartphones, this chipset, it seems, is not found. Judging by the cores and GPU, AnTuTu should be expected under 400 thousand points. Not a masterpiece, but not a frank brake.

About other characteristics.

Permanent memory - 128 GB. Support for memory cards is available.

The screen is simple. IPS-matrix with a diagonal of 6.52" (103 cm²) and extremely low resolution, only 720x1600 (269 ppi). The refresh rate is not declared. The Voyage 30S had 90 Hz. Rathereverything, it will be exactly the same. Or not.

Battery - only 4000 mAh and no fast charging.

The cameras are the simplest. 5 MP front and 13+2+2 MP rear (main, macro, depth sensor).

There is support for 5G networks and a side fingerprint scanner, but no NFC module. They forgot to say about the Wi-Fi version. USB normal, Type-C.

About money. The newcomer will cost ¥1398 (₽15300, $202) and ¥1748 (₽19200, $253) at the start of sales for versions 4+128 and 8+128 GB, respectively.

What is curious, ZTE Voyage 30S at the start of sales cost only ¥1199 (₽13200, $174) for 4+128 GB. But now the price has risen to ¥1499 (₽16400, $217).
