Huawei recently announced new series of flagship processors called Kirin 990. There is an obvious reason to use it for the upcoming Mate 30 series. But the company took a different approach to announce another flagship Honor Vera30 series to be built on Kirin 990 5G. However, the name is seemingly new, but this could be the successor of Honor V20 or globally called Honor View 20.
The company precisely suggests launching multiple smartphones under this series, unlike its traditional pattern. Nevertheless, the published poster also confirms, it will have 5G support either, however, the launch date is not yet final. It further reads, “the whole dual-mode 5G Netcom will see you in the fourth quarter of this year.”
To recall, HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G packs tri-cluster octa-core CPU divided into 2x Cortex-A76 @2.86GHz, 2x Cortex-A76 cores @2.36GHz and remaining 4x Cortex-A55 cores clocks @1.95GHz. There is another 4G variant with slightly underclocking CPU without 5G support. The 5G variant arrives with integrated 5G modem, that could provide up to 3.3 Gbps download and 1.32 Gbps upload speed.
Moreover, The Honor View 20 packs HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset coupled with Mali-G76 MP10. Indeed, it is a replica of Mate 30 smartphone at an affordable price point. It features 6.4-inch 1080 x 2310 pixels Full HD+ display. There is a dual rear camera with a 48MP main sensor combined with ToF 3D lens. On the front, it has a single 25MP shooter for selfies. The handset runs on Android 9 Pie based on Magic UI 2.0. It has 4,000 mAh non-removable battery with 22.5W fast charging support.
