The year 2020 so far does not look that good for smartphones. Most of the tech events are either canceled or postponed. The release of smartphones is delayed due to this pandemic lockdown. But gradually this situation is getting better. Recently, OnePlus unveiled its latest flagships, OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro, and Bullet Wireless Z earbuds. But this buzz was soon stolen, as Apple announced its long-awaited low-cost iPhone SE. Now, Huawei-s sub-brand Honor also announced its 2020’s flagship Honor 30 lineup — Honor 30, 30 Pro and 30 Pro Plus. The expected price of Honor 30 is Rs 60,000 and Honor 30 Pro is Rs 80,000 in Nepal.
