Honor 50 was the first major smartphone from Honor after it became an independent brand. The handset was launched in China back in June this year, but the company has shared some good news before its global launch.
After separating itself from Huawei, the Chinese company promised that it will announce a phone with Google Mobile Services (GMS) before the end of the year. The brand is finally delivering on that promise with its latest tweet.
Honor 50 will launch in Europe on October 26 and the company has just confirmed that it will come with GMS.

Honor 50 helped the brand regain its position as the third biggest phone maker in its home market in China. The company is looking to achieve similar success in the international market starting with Europe. Huawei and Honor were once the biggest brands in Europe after all.
However, while Chinese fans get to enjoy both the Honor 50 and Honor 50 Pro, it appears that international customers will only get the base model.
In any case, the vanilla Honor 50 is still quite a solid phone powered by the Snapdragon 778G, 120Hz OLED screen, 108MP main camera, and a 4,300 mAh battery with 67W blazing-fast charging. This can charge up the device up to 70% in only 20 minutes.
