Honor's next main cell phone is View 30, and the Huawei Kirin 990 processor will support it. This means that it will be compatible with 5G and will have the same chip as the Huawei Mate 30, which of course is more expensive and doubles Mate X.
Huawei announced the Kirin 990 at IFA 2019 last week, confirming that it would have a 5G modem. The Chinese report (via GSMArena) quotes Honorary President George Zhao as saying that View 30 (which could be renamed Vera 30 in some areas) will use processors, carrying sub-brands according to the strength of its parent company.
Vista de honor 20 this year has a Kirin 980 chip that is also found in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and P30 Pro, but they managed to reduce the price of Huawei phones thanks to the LCD screen instead of OLED, cheaper building materials and removing fingerprint sensors on the screen. Many, including us, can see the enormous appeal of the most powerful mid-priced devices on the line. Honor managed to do this by promoting to a different audience than Huawei: respecting younger people, who understood prices, while Huawei was still able to sell at higher prices to wanted buyers and fans of the latest technology.
So just like in 2019, Huawei phones in 2020 may have more cameras, flashier designs, and OLED displays, but Honor View 30 will cut the price, have the same processing power, and maybe even keep a headphone jack. But Honor will get into the same U.S. trade ban problem as Huawei, and View 30 could ship without access to Google apps and services.
