The Honor 70 series launched in May, and there were three phones – Honor 70, 70 Pro & 70 Pro+. All three had a curved display, glass back, and a similar camera module design. While the Honor 70 featured Snapdragon 778G chipset, the 70 Pro had Dimensity 8000 & the 70 Pro+ had the Dimensity 9000. Now, Honor is all set to launch the next generation. The Honor 80 series is launching in China on November 23, which means in almost a week. Along with the launch date, Honor also gave us the first look at the design.
As we can see, the back design is unique, and there are two reasons for that. The first is the pattern on the rear panel, and the second is the camera module. The Honor 70 series had a similar camera module design, but this time, Honor took it one step further by adding that chrome accent around the cameras (which seems to be making an “8”). On the front, there are dual cameras, and the pill-shaped cutout is placed in the center. For comparison, no Honor 70 series device had a dual camera setup on the front.
Another thing to note is the text below the camera module. It says “160MP,” which suggests this is the first smartphone to feature a 160MP sensor. This isn’t the highest megapixel count on a smartphone since that award goes to the 200MP sensor. But still, we haven’t seen a camera sensor so far that outputs 160MP photos.
Also, this is most likely the Honor 80 Pro and not the vanilla model. As per DCS, there is Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset under the hood, a 50MP primary selfie camera, and 66W fast charging.
