Honor's 2021 line-up begins to take shape: after the top of the range V40 and the mid-range V40 Lite, Play 5 e Play 20, the expected family officially arrives Honor 50. A series of smartphones that gives strength to the new course of the company, following the sale by Huawei. After the Honor 30 family remained in the shadows in 2020, in this round we are faced with 3 models that thus skip the "40" generation: the standard Honor 50 model, Honor 50 SE e Honor 50 Pro. Let's see together what are the news of the Honor flagship family, including data sheet, images, price and release date.

Design and display

The design of the Honor 50 family presents a great novelty, with a renewed style characterized by the layout of the double ring camera. Honor 50 has a camera consisting of two circles inserted in a capsule module, with a style very similar to that of the next range Huawei P50. Although the companies are now officially separate, it is practically assumed that the development of Huawei P50 and Honor 50 went hand in hand. A new aesthetic gimmick that will be proposed in new colors: on Honor 50 Pro we have those Bright Black, Summer Amber, First Snow Crystal and Jade Blue. On Honor 50 SE, on the other hand, those Bright Black, Ocean Blue and Magic Mirror.

Seemingly not visible, the fingerprint reader is integrated under the panel curved AMOLED a 10-bit. For the occasion, Honor has adopted a curved screen on the sides with an angle of 78 ° and with 2.5D curvature above and below, with very thin bezels. Specifically, Honor 50 has a 6,57 "Full HD +, while the Pro model a screen from 6,72 "Full HD +. Both have a refresh rate 120 Hz, with dynamic support to automatically lower it based on context. Different is the treatment for Honor 50 SE, on which there is a screen LCD da 6,78 "Full HD + a 120 Hz, therefore with side ID sensor.

To make room for the selfie camera, all three screens are punch-hole, with the Pro model sporting a solution double to accommodate a dual selfie camera.

Hardware and software

The Honor 50 series, including the standard model and For, will see the presence of the Snapdragon 778G: both Qualcomm and the Chinese company have revealed that they will be among the first to adopt the new chipset. Nothing to do for the Snapdragon 888, apparently aimed at the only one Magic series. The Snap 778G is a high-end 6nm solution, including a Kryo 670 octa-core CPU (1 x 2,4GHz + 3 x 2,2GHz + 4 x 1,9GHz) and an Adreno 642L GPU. Obviously, the modem is not missing 5G, present on all three models of the Honor series, as well as memories up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of UFS 2.2 storage not expandable.

But there is a difference for the technical sector of Honor 50 SE: no Qualcomm chip, but the new one Dimensity 900 of MediaTek, the same one we find on OPPO Reno 6. Also manufactured at 6 nm, it contains an octa-core Cortex-A78 CPU (2 x 2,4 GHz + 6 x 2,0 GHz) and a Mali-G68 MC4 GPU.

As for the battery, inside Honor 50 we find a unit from 4.300 mAh, while on the model SE e For a more modest one 4.000 mAh. But if both Honor 50 and SE model will still have a powerful SuperCharge a 66W, with the Pro one you climb up to well for the first time 100W. A very fast standard that will allow the smartphone to charge from 0% to 100% in just 25 minutes. Also worthy of mention is the presence of stereo speaker for optimal reproduction of multimedia audio, voice messages and calls.

Inside the smartphone there is also a cooling system using a vapor chamber to keep temperatures at bay. Still in the gaming field, on Honor 50 it will be the first time that a Qualcomm SoC will be supported by the system Turbo X GPU, the graphics acceleration technology introduced with the Honor V40.

As for the software, the Honor family is based on Android 11, with the renewed proprietary interface Magic UI 4.2. Honor confirmed the presence of the Google services specifying that, starting from Honor 50, all upcoming smartphones and tablets will be equipped with it.

Camera

As anticipated, the photographic sector of the Honor 50 family looks aesthetically similar to the one we will have on Huawei P50. But going into the specifics of the sensors, let's see what the three different configurations will be. Let's start with the cheapest model, Honor 50 SE, which integrates a triple camera from 100 + 8 + 2 MP f/1.9-2.2-2.4, complete with wide-angle and macro sensor, with selfie camera from 16 MP. The main sensor measures 1 / 1.52 ″ and with the 9-in-1 Pixel Binning technique allows you to take pictures with pixels at 2,1 µm.

We then move on to Honor 50, on the rear section of which appears a quadruple camera from 108 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP f/1.9-2.2-2.4-2.4, with the addition of a sensor for depth acquisition. Improve the selfie camera, which switches to a sensor from 32 MP f/2.2, with features such as Super Night Scene and Portrait mode. Furthermore, the combination of hardware (double ISP) and software allows you to record video using primary and wide angle at the same time. The presence of 3 microphones with noise reduction, then, guarantees a certain sound quality and the technique ofAudio Zoom to better pick up sounds over the distance. Alternatively, you can connect TWS headphones (like the Honor EarBuds) and use their microphones for audio-to-video capture.

Finally, we have Honor 50 Pro, whose rear camera remains unchanged, while the front one changes, with a dual selfie camera from 32 + 12 MP. The secondary is a sensor wide-angle lens with FoV of 100 ° and is referred to as Vlog Video Lens, ideal for recording clips with a wider frame.
