The Honor V30 Pro was announced back in November as the company’s latest flagship device. The phone is only available in China right now, but we expect a global launch (as the Honor View 30) to be announced at MWC. XDA TV’s TK Bay got his hands on the 5G model ahead of the global launch event and gave us a good rundown of the device.

There is a non-Pro version of the Honor V30 as well, but TK has his hands on the Pro 5G model. The main difference between the two devices is the rear-facing camera setup. While both the devices feature triple cameras, the Honor V30 Pro adds OIS to the primary 40MP sensor. It also has a 12MP secondary wide-angle sensor with auto-focus and an 8MP telephoto sensor with auto-focus.

The front features a double-wide hole punch, which houses the 32MP and 8MP wide-angle lens. The Honor V30 Pro has 8GB of RAM with both 128GB and 256GB storage options. Another difference between the devices, which is quite unusual, is that the base Honor V30 features a larger 4,200mAh battery, while the V30 Pro packs in a 4,100mAh battery. Also, keep in mind that you will need to sideload Google services on this device. Check out TK’s video below to see the hands-on in full.
