Honor 30i now official, driven by Huawei’s Kirin 710F


The recently rumored Honor 30i is now official in Russia. The device which looks a lot like the Huawei Y8P was listed on Honor official sales page earlier today at 16,900 Russian Ruble. Yes, the device really does look like the Y8P both in design and specifications, except that the 30i does come with a faster 20W charger, which was not present in the Y8P.

It has a 6.3 organic EL display with a tall 20:9 aspect ratio, 1080 x 2400 pixels and a U-shaped notch above the screen. And like the Y8p, the Honor 30i has an in-screen fingerprint scanner, and offer Android 10 with EMUI v10.1, which gives you Huawei’s HMS and App Gallery, instead of Google Play store.

Processing power comes from Hisilicon Kirin 710F, an octa-core 12nm chip, clocked at 2.2GHz, along with Mali-G51 GPU. The phone has 4GB RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. You are also getting three camera modules at the back, 8MP wide and 2MP depth lens, pegged with a 48-megapixel main snapper, while a single 16-megapixel selfie snapper is kept in the notch upfront.
