The highly-anticipated Honor 30S will finally be making it’s official debut on March 30th later this month. During the same launch event, the company is also expected to unveil another entry-level smartphone known as the Honor Play 9A.
Right now, ahead of the actual unveiling of the Honor 30S, popular benchmarking platform AnTuTu had revealed the preliminary benchmark score of the device. Apparently, the Honor 30S had achieved a pretty impressive score of 375,270 points on AnTuTu – which is above average for a mid-ranger phone.
Besides that, AnTuTu has also revealed that the Honor 30S will feature a 2,400 x 1080 pixels screen resolution and is powered by the latest Kirin 820 SoC. Under the hood, there will be a generous 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage space available for the users as well.
Even though it was stated that the device will boot on Android 10 OS, but that will be the AOSP version of the software which will not comes with Google Mobile Services (GMS). Instead, it will rely on the company’s proprietary Huawei Mobile Services (HMS).
On paper, the Honor 30S looks set to be a really powerful mid-ranger smartphone courtesy of it’s Kirin 820 SoC. Based on a recent Geekbench 4 performance tests, the Kirin 820 is in fact relatively more powerful than the Kirin 980 and Snapdragon 855 SoC.
Apart of it’s upgraded performance, the Kirin 820 SoC is also a 5G-enabled chip that will allow devices to support both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) 5G modes.
