Honor 50 Pro+ to feature Snapdragon 888 & 50MP camera

There won't be any Honor 40 series!

A year ago, Honor 30 series went official with three phones under it named the Honor 30, Honor 30 Pro, and Honor 30 Pro+. Now, Honor has decided to skip the “40” series and jump straight onto the Honor 50 lineup (Maybe because the number 4 is considered unlucky in China). Well, Honor has already announced that it would launch the “50” series next month and now, we got to know the specifications of the highest-end model under this lineup, the Honor 50 Pro+. These details were shared on Weibo by Master Lu.

So going by these specs, Honor 50 Pro+ has a big 6.79-inch AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, 2K resolution, and HDR10+ support. Under the hood, it packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SOC paired with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. There is a 4,400mAh battery underneath and the phone supports 66W Fast Wired and 50W fast wireless charging.

Speaking of the cameras, there is a triple camera setup on the back that includes a primary 50 Megapixel shooter paired with a 13 Megapixel ultrawide and an 8 Megapixel camera for zoom shots. There is also a Time of Flight sensor on the back. Now, the Honor 30 Pro+ had a 50 Megapixel Sony sensor but the same cannot be said for the Honor 50 Pro+. The 50 Megapixel sensor could be one from Samsung. On the front, there are two cameras – a 32 Megapixel main and an 8 Megapixel ultrawide.

The Honor 30 Pro+ had the Kirin 990 SOC so it is interesting to see Honor going the Snapdragon route this time. Now if you are confused about how Honor is able to use Snapdragon chipsets, the Honor brand separated from Huawei last year as Huawei finalized a deal with Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology of China.

We are expecting the Honor 50 series to launch globally but the exact launch date is still a mystery.
