The Honor 30 series will officially use three 5G chipsets: Kirin 990 5G, 985 and 820

The Honor 30 series will feature all three of HiSilicon’s 5G enabled chipsets – from the flagship Kirin 990 5G, through the yet to be announced Kirin 985 and to the mid-range Kirin 820. This was confirmed by the company itself on Weibo.

The Honor 30S is already official with a 820 chip. This leaves the other two chipsets for the upcoming Honor 30 and 30 Pro, which popped up on TENAA a couple of days ago.

The Honor 30 Pro will have a 50MP rear camera (up from 40MP on the non-Pro) and up to 12GB of RAM to go with the Kirin 990 5G. The vanilla Honor 30 will use the 985 chip, which has a similar CPU configuration but runs at lower clock speeds. The two phones will share a 6.57” AMOLED display (1080p+ resolution) and 3,900mAh battery.

Besides the 50MP camera with Sony IMX700 sensor (seen here in a leaked image), the Honor 30 Pro will also have a periscope telephoto cam.

The company posted a couple of camera samples teasing the phone’s low-light capabilities and a possible Moon mode. Honor’s president also shared official images of the phone itself ahead of its official unveiling on April 15.
