Honor 30 Pro Plus is here. The new high-end smartphone with a bulky name has now been unveiled in China. The camera in particular draws attention.
Honor is currently introducing the new Honor 30 series in its home country. During the presentation of the camera, the test result in DXOMARK and therefore an important part of the technical specifications were put online. And unsurprisingly, the Honor 30 Pro Plus may be based on Huawei’s latest smartphones. In the ranking, the new flagship of the Huawei subsidiary is only behind the Huawei P40 Pro, anything else certainly would not have been a good idea just for marketing reasons.
Huawei vs. Honor differs in details
As was already evident beforehand, the main camera hardware is quite impressive. The base is a Sony IMX700 image sensor based on RYYB, with 50 MP and a size of 1 / 1.28 inches. This image sensor creates pixels up to 2.44 micrometers in size, which is a real success. But it is not a novelty, because we found this camera very similar in the Huawei P40 Pro. The only difference: Huawei donated the Honor smartphones without optical image stabilization for the main camera, we only found this in the zoom camera.
If we compare the number of points achieved in the individual categories, the P40 Pro is the clearest ahead in terms of night, zoom and bokeh. The remaining categories are partially the same or the differences are only very small (less than 4 points). Ironically, at ultra wide, where the P40 Pro offers a full 40 MP instead of 16 MP, a significantly larger image sensor, and a larger aperture, the score is balanced. Does that speak against the test criteria or against the camera on the Huawei smartphone?

As far as the rest of the hardware is concerned, Honor fits perfectly with the 30 series on the current high-end smartphone shelf. Don’t expect miracles or news here that we haven’t seen elsewhere. At the moment, no details are known about whether the Honor 30 Pro Plus and its younger brother will arrive in Europe.
