After months of anticipation, Honor has finally launched the brand new Honor 50 series smartphones in the global market that will be loaded with Google Mobile Services (GMS) – just like what we’ve been hoping for!
As expected, the company had introduced a total of three different models which include the likes of the vanilla Honor 50, Honor 50 Pro, as well as Honor 50 SE. Without further ado, let’s check out what these devices have in store for us!
Honor 50 Pro
The Honor 50 Pro, as it’s name suggests, is the highest-end model among the trio. It sports a 6.72” AMOLED display with subtle curves running across it’s two sides. The front display features a FHD+ screen resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, as well as HDR10+ playback support.
For photography, the Honor 50 Pro relies on an impressive quad-camera setup at the back which is lead by a 108 megapixels main camera alongside an 8 megapixels ultra-wide lens, 2 megapixels macro camera, as well as a 2 megapixels monochrome lens. Rounding out the camera department will be a pair of front-facing cameras consisting of a 32 megapixels shooter and a 12 megapixels ultra-wide unit.
Under the hood, the Honor 50 Pro is powered by the latest Snapdragon 778 mobile platform which will be paired with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage in the memory department.
The phone draws power from a respectable 4,000mAh battery that comes with a blazing-fast 100W charging support which is capable of bringing the phone from 0 to 100% in just 25 minutes. On the software front, the phone boots on Magic UI 4.2 based on Android 11 OS out of the box.
For those who’re interested, the Honor 50 Pro carries a starting price of 3,699 Yuan (US$578) and 3,999 Yuan (US$625) in the Chinese market for it’s 8GB+256GB and 12GB+256GB variants.
Though the company did mentioned that the phone will be made available in the global markets, but the actual date of release has yet to be revealed.
Coming to the vanilla Honor 50, this device shares largely similar specs as it’s “Pro” sibling except for some minor differences.
Upfront, the Honor 50 arrives a slightly smaller 6.57” AMOLED display which brings along the same FHD+ screen resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, as well as HDR10+ support. However, it gets only a single 32 megapixels selfie camera instead of two.
Similarly, the Honor 50 is also equipped with a slightly larger 4,300mAh battery which supports a slower 66W charging speed. Other than that, the rest of the specs remain the same as the Honor 50 Pro.
Pricing-wise, the Honor 50 will set you back by 2,699 Yuan (US$422), 2,999 Yuan (US$469) and 3,399 Yuan (US$531) respectively for it’s 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB and 12GB+256GB variants.
Honor 50 SE
Last but not the least, we also have the slightly more affordable Honor 50 SE. Unlike it’s Honor 50 and Honor 50 Pro siblings, the Honor 50 SE settles for a LCD display with a 6.78” diagonal offering a FHD+ screen resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. The phone gets the same central hole-punch cutout on it’s front display, though it features a watered-down 16 megapixels selfie camera instead.
Over at the back, the Honor 50 SE flaunts a triple-camera setup consisting of the same 108 megapixels main camera which is assisted by an 8 megapixels ultra-wide lens and a 2 megapixels macro camera.
At the helm, it’s powered by an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset – just like the recently announced OPPO Reno6 5G. This will be paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage in the memory department.
Keeping it’s lights on will be a 4,000mAh battery which carries support for 66W fast-charging. Aside from that, the phone is also shipped with Magic UI 4.2 based on Android 11 OS.
In the Chinese market, the Honor 50 SE is priced at 2,399 Yuan (US$375) and 2,699 Yuan (US$422) respectively for it’s 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB models
