Honor on Monday introduced a new Honor 30 series. The first smartphone in the new lineup is Honor 30S. The smartphone is equipped with Kirin 820 processor which also brings 5G connectivity. Another highlight of the phone is 64-megapixel AI quad-camera module.

Honor 30S is available in two variants - 8GB, 128GB and 8GB and 256GB. The two models are priced at CNY 2,399 (25,500 approximately) and CNY 2,699 (28,700 approximately) respectively. The phone is scheduled to go on sale in China on April 7. There's no word on the availability of the phone in India. Considering the Covid-19 lockdown in the country, new phones are likely to arrive only after April 15 or even later.
