Chinese company ZTE has unveiled three new mid-range products in its S30 series, all of which support 5G capability, despite hardware differences. The focus of the various members of this family, regardless of their differences, is above all on issues such as the quality and dimensions of the screen, camera and battery pack, and among these, the highest specifications and features belong to the S30 Pro with OLED screen and Snapdragon 768G processor. has taken. The S30 and S30 SE are next in line, and although Qualcomm's OLED display and processor are turning into LCD panels and MediaTek processors, they still retain their attractiveness at a glance.
The highest specs among the three members of this group naturally belong to the S30 Pro model. With Qualcomm 7 Series processor, high refresh rate OLED display and very fast battery charger, it is distinguished from the other two members; The design of the device with small margins around the screen and the different shape of the rear camera area looks interesting, and its pink/blue color combination will also attract a lot of attention.
Z30 Pro screen A large 6.67-inch AMOLED sample with a resolution of 1080 × 2400 pixels According to ZTE, it covers up to 93.8% of the phone. The main positive point of this screen is its 144Hz update rate, which goes beyond the level of some flagship phones, and with the 360Hz detection speed, the touch screen (especially in game applications) is very attractive. The screen brightness of the device is declared up to 800 nits and also supports 100% of the DCI-P3 color range. The device's fingerprint sensor is located inside this screen, and at the top we find a 44-megapixel selfie camera.
The rear cameras include a 64-megapixel main unit, an 8-megapixel ultraviolet (with 120-degree field of view) and a 2-megapixel macro, and the fourth unit in this section is a 2-megapixel depth-of-field sensor.
ZTE has gone for the processing of a 7nm Snapdragon 768G processor with a 2.8 core At the highest level, the A76 has a similar 2.76GHz mid-range A76 core at the mid-range and six low-end 1.8GHz A55 cores, and its Adreno 620 graphics are up to 15% better than similar graphics on the Snapdragon 765G. The phone has 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of non-expandable internal memory.
Another plus of the S30 Pro is its battery, which despite its capacity 4,200mAh For this screen size, the display does not look great, but with a 55-watt fast charger, it offers a very fast experience. The S30 Pro does not have a headset jack, and its list of connectivity options includes Wi-Fi 5 (ac version) and Bluetooth 5.1.
ZTE S30 Pro in black and a combination of pink/blue with operating system Android 11 and the user interface called MyOS 11 are available and have been present in the Chinese market since April 3 (April 14, 1400) at a price of 2,999 yuan (with a current exchange rate of close to US $ 457).
The S30 looks like the S30 Pro at first glance, but this similarities in appearance do not last long, and we encounter different conditions in most parts. The first new feature of this model is its display, which although it is still 6.67 inches with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, but its manufacturing technology has changed to LCD و and the refresh rate of 144 Hz and the speed of receiving a 360 Hz touch in it are 90 and respectively. 240Hz reduced. With the LCD on this screen, the fingerprint sensor no longer has a place in it and has been moved to the right side and on the power button. Another change in this price belongs to the selfie camera resolution, which has been reduced from 44 to 16 megapixels.
Combination of rear cameras unchanged and 64-megapixel main camera The 8-megapixel ultraviolet and 2-megapixel depth-of-field sensor are in place, with the only difference being the resolution of the macro camera, which has been increased from 2 to 5 megapixels. Another subtle change is the resolution of the main camera, which has been reduced to 4K/30fps instead of 4K/60fps.
ZTE S30 uses a 5G 7nm Dimensity 720 processor that It is equipped with 2 2.0 GHz A76 cores and 6 2 GHz A55 cores, and its Mali-G57 GPU also has 3 cores. The maximum refresh rate supported by the display in this processor is 90 Hz, and thus the reason for the reduced refresh rate in the S30 panel can be clearly seen. The phone has a fixed RAM of 8 GB and 128 or 256 GB of non-expandable internal memory.
S30 Both in terms of battery capacity and charging speed, poorer performance than It has the S30 Pro and uses a 4,000 mAh battery and a 30-watt charger. The headset jack has returned to the connectivity options of this phone, and WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.1 are also in place.
ZTE S30 apparently in the same two previous colors with Android 11 OS and UI The MyOS 11 will be available in China from April 3 and will be priced at 2,199 and 2,399 yuan ($ 335 and $ 365) for the 128 and 256 GB versions (both with 8 GB of RAM), respectively. Finally, it's time for the cheapest and simplest member of the family, the S30 SE, which in all cases offers fewer features than the S30, and apparently the only advantage over the other members of this family is its larger battery. Like the rest of the series, the S30 SE is equipped with a 6.67-inch 1080 x 2400 pixel display, which, like the S30, is built with LCD technology, but now has more margins, especially at the bottom, with a screen-to-body ratio of 92.1%. This panel, which supports 95% of the NTSC spectrum, has a standard 60Hz refresh rate, and the lack of touch speed is clearly indicative of its weaker condition than the others. The phone's selfie camera is 8 megapixels and a fingerprint sensor can also be seen on the side of the device.
In the back with only two cameras, one 48 megapixel main and the other 5 megapixel We encounter a macro and the third sensor is a 2 megapixel depth of field.
The processor of the device is now of Dimensity 700 type, which despite maintaining 5G connectivity And 7-nanometer lithography uses weaker graphics. The processing cores of this chipset include 2 2.2 GHz A76 cores and 6 2.0 GHz A55 cores, which in this field and in the section of more powerful cores, offer better conditions than Dimensity 720. The model has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, like the other two models, in the absence of a microSD port, only memory will be available to users.
Battery of this model as one of its most important attractions with a capacity of 6,000 mAh An upgraded watch that will probably have a very high durability for this collection. The use of this battery, of course, has obvious negative effects; Where the thickness of less than 8 mm of the other two models has now increased to 9.6 mm. The charger provided for this battery has only 18 watts of power, which does not provide a very high speed for it. On the other hand, with the support of OTG in this model, it will be possible to charge other devices through the S30 SE internal battery. The 3.5mm headphone jack is also present in this phone, and WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.1 have not changed.
ZTE S30 SE in a black color and a purple/silver combination color with The Android 11 operating system and MyOS 11 user interface have been available in China since April 3 and are priced at 1,699 yuan ($ 259).
