Honor 80 series is confirmed to launch on Nov. 23 in China. Recent reports say that there will be three models in the lineup: the Honor 80 SE, the Honor 80, and the Honor 80 Pro. A new poster from the company shows that the Honor 80 will have a new Snapdragon 7-series processor.
Previous leaks have claimed that the Honor 80 SE will feature the Dimensity 1080 chipset and the Honor 80 will have the Snapdragon 778G Plus chipset. The Honor 80 Pro will come with the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC.
The above-shown image released by Honor confirms that the Honor 80 Pro will indeed feature the SD8+G1 SoC. However, it also reveals a surprise about the vanilla Honor 80. It confirms that the device is powered by the unannounced Snapdragon 782G.
Qualcomm will hold its Tech Summit today (Nov. 15). The US-based chipmaker is expected to announce the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform. There is a possibility that the Snapdragon 782G SoC may also go official alongside the SD8G2.
Coming back to the Honor 80 series, the rumor mill has been leaking the specifications of the lineup in bits and pieces. The Honor 80 SE and Honor 80 are expected to support 66W fast charging, whereas the Honor 80 Pro will support 100W rapid charging.
Speculations are rife that the Honor 80 Pro will have dual 50-megapixel cameras on the front. The back panel of the device is likely to feature a 160-megapixel primary camera. The rest of its specifications are under wraps. The Honor 80 is likely to have a 108-megapixel main camera, while the Honor 80 SE could be equipped with a 64-megapixel primary snapper.
