Honor has announced its View 30 Pro smartphone for the European market, but the phone won’t be coming to the UK any time soon.
The View 30 Pro is a global version of the V30 Pro that was launched in China at the end of last year and was announced in lieu of Mobile World Congress via a livestream event. It’s a 5G handset running the latest Huawei Kirin 990 chipset.
Honor said that Russia would be the first market where the View 30 Pro will launch, with a date to be confirmed.
Honor also reportedly told TechRadar the View 30 Pro won’t be coming to the UK.
The Honor View 20 launched this time last year in the UK at £499 with Google Play Services.
Owned by Huawei, Honor does not have Google apps and services as no new Huawei phones launched since May 2019 can officially support Google services, making the phones a very tough sell in the UK and Europe.
But the Huawei Mate 30 Pro has just been released in the UK without Google services, and instead will run Huawei’s App Gallery app store.
Honor is marketed at young people, so without a plethora of social media apps available, the phone would probably not have much demand at this stage.
Honor also announced global versions of the 9X Pro mid-range phone, but also did not confirm an official UK or Europe release date.
