Honor V30 series was launched last year in China, this lineup comes in a duo – Honor V30 and V30 Pro. Soon after its release, Honor V30 Pro reviewed by DXOMARK and surpassed Huawei flagship – Mate 30 Pro (4G).
Now DXOMARK has published the audio test results of Honor V30 Pro achieving an overall score of 59 points and establishing it on 15th place in the list.
Honor V30 Pro audio specs:
- Single-speaker design.
- Bluetooth BT5.1, BLE/SBC/AAC/LDAC HD audio.
- No headphone jack (USB-C adapter included).
DXOMARK found three flaws in audio playback quality:
- Single-speaker design brings the phone’s Spatial sub-score to a very low 28.
- The lack of low-end extension affects tonal reproduction on the timbre field, as well as bass precision in the dynamics area.
- Excessive compression at high volumes not only impairs dynamics but reduces maximum volume capability and induces temporal artifacts.
On the other hand, the Honor V30 Pro scores 74, delivering the best recording performance with exemplary frequency response, well-preserved dynamics, and excellent spatial rendering.
“By choosing to equip its latest flagship with a single speaker, Honor greatly affected the V30 Pro’s playback performance. A lack of low-end extension and excessive compression at high volumes also impair its timbre, dynamics, volume, and artifacts performances. However, the Honor V30 Pro’s microphones deliver outstanding tonal balance, excellent spatial capture, and faithful dynamics. In the recording area, these category-leading sub-scores, along with good overall loudness, few artifacts, and a very natural background rendering make Honor’s low-cost flagship simply the best.” wrote DXOMARK.

Huawei begins mass production of its next foldable phone: Report
Despite all of the issues that Huawei is facing in the global market, the Chinese tech maker hasn’t stopped innovating. In the latest edition of this segment, it’s reported that Huawei has begun the mass production of its next-gen foldable phone, which is quite amazing news.
According to a report coming from Taiwanese media, Huawei has started the mass production of its next-generation foldable phone in November. It’s mentioned that the phone will compete against Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 but the price could be lower.
The report also wrote shows that the success of Galaxy Z Flip has brought the interest of other tech makers into this field and they also want to produce the same products to step foot into this smartphone category. Despite their futuristic appearance and interesting features, foldable phones are using immature glass technology and costs high as compared to regular flagship devices.
Talking about Samsung, the company launched its Z Flip 3 in August this year, and in over 40 days, the model received over 1 million sales on the record. Samsung plans to increase shipments of foldable smartphones from 7 million to 13 million by 2022, including 4 million Galaxy Z Fold and 9 million Galaxy Z Flip.
On the other hand, due to the restrictions, Samsung’s rival Huawei is currently lagging behind in the foldable smartphones segment but it’s very much capable of making such innovation as seen in the Mate X2.
Previous sources reveal that Huawei could launch a new flip design smartphone that will come with a powerful hinge system named – Mate V. Although, Huawei has not spoken anything on this matter.
Huawei Mate V Flip:
Huawei Mate V has a clamshell phone design. The main panel is a full view display that folds inward. There are function keys on the left and the right side consist volume and power buttons. Meanwhile, the bottom side features ports and speaker grills for the input.
On the rear side, the Mate V flip is likely to feature a camera bump that is large and placed vertical camera system featuring different lense. However, there are different techs that could be introduced while the phone makes its entrance on the ground.
