The ZTE S30 series in China has recently been announced. Today (30 March 2020) the company presented its latest line-up of three models: the S30 Pro, S30, and S30 SE.
ZTE S30 Pro
With a 6,67″-AMOLED display with an FHD+ resolution the S30 Pro 5G is the most advanced version within the newer range (1080x2400px). The display also supports HDR 10+ with a high 144Hz refresh rate and a 360Hz touch sample rate. Its monitor also provides a peak 800-nit luminosity and a full-color gamut of DCI-P3.
The front panel features a 44 MP selfie camera that also provides AI portrait mode and different filters. With its quad-camera (64MP+8MP+2MP) module going towards the back, the S30 Pro has a primary sensor that captures 4K video in 60Fps. This camera system also provides smoother video capture with dual-channel anti-shake.
The company has placed a focus on the new smartphone’s design, with the S30 Pro 5G’s main design principle being lightness. On the latest unit, the OEM used a 3D stacking system to minimize its thickness to only 7.8mm and reduce its weight to just 178 grams, making it feel thin and secure in the user’s hands.
The S30 Pro is a 7nm processor with an embedded Snapdragon X52 5G modem and houses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G SoC under the hood. A 4,200mAh battery operated by the unit can be used to charge up to 55W quickly. The S30 5G with its single 8GB RAM and 256GB disk version is priced at 2.998 Yuan (about 456 US dollars) and will be expected from 3 April 2021.
The S30 5G was also presented today, and it also boasts a 6.67-inch screen with an FHD+ resolution identical to the top-end model. It has a 20:9 aspect ratio, a 90 Hz high refresh rate, a sampling rate of 240 Hz, and a 93.1% screen-to-body ratio. The device is fitted with the 720 octa-core MediaTek CPU, a 5 G chip. It is fitted with a similar quad-core module (64Mp + 8MP + 5MP + 2MP) in the rear of the camera, but it has a camera with a 16MP punch hole facing the front.
A 4,000mAh battery powers the S30 5G, which supports up to 30W fast charging. In addition to the S30 series, the firm also announced the new MyOS lineup operating system that offers a unique user interface and a wide range of attractive wallpapers. The S30 5G can be bought from 3rd April 2021 and is available at 2,198 Yuan ($334) with 8Gb Ram + 256Gb and the other variant available at 2398 Yuan($265) having the configuration of 8GB Ram + 128Gb.
ZTE S30 SE
The Chinese tech giant also launched the latest S30 SE 5G, in addition to the base and Pro models. The SE edition, like the other two, comes with a 6.67-inch touchscreen with FHD+ resolution and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. The device has a triple camera configuration on the rear (48MP + 5MP + 2MP).
It has a massive 6,000mAh battery and an internal storage capacity of up to 128GB. One of the standout qualities, along with 5G networking support, is the huge battery size. The new phone is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage inside.
