A brief guide to the Honor 50 series

Honor has launched the 50-series in China. These models are expected to support GMS outside of China as well. This the first flagship smartphone after separating with Huawei last year. This post will be glancing at the key specifications and the expected Honor 50 series price in Nepal.

Honor 50 and Honor 50 Pro Overviews

Design and Display

Honor 50 5G has 6.57-inch AMOLED FHD+ displays. Similarly, the 50 Pro 5G flaunts a 6.72-inch AMOLED display. There is only a little difference between these two since both are packed with a center-aligned cutout holding the front camera. The camera setup differentiates them from the standard Honor 50.

There is also excellent support of 120Hz dynamic refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate with the HDR certification. Furthermore, there is a 10-bit color depth which results in the production of billion colors.

Performance and Memory

Honor 50 and 50 Pro are the first phones to feature the brand-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G based on TSMC’s 6nm node. However, this is just the toned-down version of Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G.

The most highlighted thing about the new Honor 50 series is that it packs the Google Mobile Services (GMS) for the global market and not only in China.

Camera

The Honor 50 and 50 Pro has two circular rings that contain the camera setup. The upper ring houses the primary sensor and the lower ring holds the rest of the lens which completes the quad-camera setup. The primary sensor is a 108MP ISOCELL HM2 which is 1/1.52-inch in size capturing the 12MP picture by the non-binning technique.

Furthermore, the lower ring has an 8MP ultrawide shooter accompanied by two 2MP depth and macro sensors.

There is a 32MP selfie shooter in both 50 and 50 Pro but the difference comes when the Pro version has the 12MP ultrawide lens teaming up with the shooter.

Battery

Talking about the battery, there has been a compromise on the Pro version over the standard model. Where the 50 is fueled by the 4,300mAh battery, the Pro version is stuck with 4,000mAh. However, the Honor 50 comes with 66W fast charging and the Pro version packs 100W.

Honor 50 SE Overview

The Honor 50 SE has the largest display of all 6.78” FHD with a 120Hz refresh rate. However, the touch sampling rate is limited to 240Hz. Moreover, the main difference is in the processor because it uses a MediaTek Dimensity 900 5G.

The other noticeable difference is that it features a triple camera setup. Where the other versions had all cameras within the rings, it has one outside of it.
