Earlier today Chinese retailer Vmall added a new color option to the palette of the Honor 30 and 30 Pro. It gets machine translated to “Streamer Mirror” and is lighter than the Neon Purple color that was previously available. It’s fairly similar to the Icelandic Frost option for the View30 Pro (though with less green).
The Honor 30 starts at CNY 3,200 just as before. This is for the version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage, which you can bump up to 256GB for CNY 300 more. Sales started at 10:08 local time and for you can pay the phone in 24 month installments (a limited time interest-free offer).
The Honor 30 Pro starts at CNY 4,000 for the base version (8/128GB), the memory upgrade (256GB storage) is CNY 4,400. If you want the better camera and 90Hz screen of the 30 Pro+ version, you’ll have to choose Black, Green or Silver. For now at least the plus model does not get the new color.
Here’s a comparison with the old Titanium Silver color, as well as Icelandic Frost on the Honor View30 Pro.
By the way, you could win a signed photo of Li Xian, the ambassador for the Honor 30 series, if you follow Honor’s Weibo account and repost the announcement of the new color.
