Huawei’s Honor brand on Tuesday this week announced the Honor V30 and V30 Pro smartphones in China. The two models came out as the brand’s first 5G smartphones and they bring 5G to the mid-range segment. We bring you hands-on pictures of the Honor V30 Pro with a short review of the design and features.
The Honor V30 Pro is the topmost version and it bears the same design as the V30 so take this as an analysis of the Honor V30’s design as well. Not to leave you in doubt, the two models only differ in a few aspects including their memory configurations. The V30 is available in 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM with just 128GB storage option. While the V30 Pro comes in 8GB of RAM and 128GB and 256GB storage options. The V30 Pro equally has a slightly smaller 4100mAhbattery with 40W wired fast charging support and wireless charging support. Wireless charging is lacking on the V30 even though it packs a slightly larger 4200mAh battery.
In terms of design, the Honor V30 Pro 5G utilises a punch-hole display on its 6.57-inch IPS LCD display with full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixel and 20:9 aspect ratio. We had thought Huawei would shift to an LED punch-hole design on this model that disappointingly didn’t happen. The elliptical shaped cutout houses two selfie cameras. The cutout ensures the bezels at the top is trimmed down giving it a 91.46% screen ratio.
The fingerprint sensor of the phone can be found on the right edge embedded in the power button. The Honor V30 features the same dual punch-hole display and also comes with a side-facing fingerprint reader. Both phones offer 91.46 percent screen-to-body ratio.
At the back, the V30 Pro packs a triple camera setup arranged vertically inside a rather wide module. The module equally holds the LED flash. Since the device comes with wireless charging, the V30 Pro uses a glass back panel. There is no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor neither is there a front sensor. Instead, the device packs a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The scanner is integrated with the power button and is located just below the volume rocker at the right side of the screen.

The antenna band line extends downward a little at the side which may be the reason why the SIM tray is removed from the side. It is now located at the bottom edge of the phone flanking the USB-C port and microphone. The speaker grill is at the other edge of the charging port.
The device supports 27W superfast wireless charging and 7.5W reverse wireless charging.
The Honor V30 Pro has 162.7 × 75.8 x 8.8mm and it weighs 206g. The thickness and weight are slightly lesser than the V30 5G due to the stated variance in the battery sizes.
