We have been hearing about the Honor 50 series since April and the Chinese brand has finally confirmed its launch date. The lineup will become official on June 16 in Shanghai.
Honor has also posted a teaser video on Weibo that does not talk about any specifications but does showcase the Honor 50’s dual-ring main camera design.
We don’t have a full spec sheet on the Honor 50 just yet, but the company has confirmed a few features of the phone. The base Honor 50 will be powered by a Snapdragon 778G SoC and the Pro model will feature the same chip. The Honor 50 Pro+, however, will be the only flagship in the series with the Snapdragon 888 chip at its helm.
This was revealed by the Master Lu benchmark, which also showed that the Honor 50 Pro+ will have a 6.79-inch AMOLED panel with 2K resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. It will have 8GB LPDDR5 RAM, 128GB UFS 3.1 storage, and a 4,400 mAh battery with support for 66W wired and 50W wireless charging.
The main camera setup will include a 50MP sensor next to a 13MP ultrawide, 8MP telephoto and a 3D ToF unit. The dual front camera setup will be a combination of 32MP wide and 8MP ultrawide shooters.
