Honor 30 series: What we know so far
We don’t have a lot of rumors and leaks on the series. However, there was a recent leak where a phone was spotted in a Chinese subway. The phone was likely the Honor 30 Pro. The images showed that the phone featured a pill-shaped cut-out on the front of a large screen. The phone also featured curved edges of the screen on the left and right. Thanks to a thick casing, however, we couldn’t figure out much otherwise. Also Read - Honor 30 Pro reportedly spotted on subway in China, reveals pill-shaped notch
