Honor announced that their latest smartphone series – Honor 50 will be officially launched on June 16, in China. Earlier today, the company Honor posted a video on Chinese social media platform Weibo, confirming the launch date. The video gives us a peek on what to expect from Honor 50 smartphone series. Even so, for now the launch is limited to China only, but we can expect its Global launch later this year.
Honor 50 smartphone series comprises three variants such as Honor 50, Honor 50 Pro, & Honor 50 Pro+. These Honor devices will come in three colours, including Yellow, Blue & Purple, and we can expect to see a few more colour options in the future.
To date, there have been enough leaks, & rumours about Honor 50 series specifications & its features. Plus, the company has also shared some teasers, verifying quiet of those leaks & rumours.
As per a video shared by the company, Honor, we spotted a large-pill shaped camera system at rear, consisting of two-large rings. The upper ring is said to house a single primary sensor and the lower ring will have two separate sensors.
So far, the leaks have suggested that Honor 50 & Honor 50 Pro will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 788G SoC chipset. Meanwhile the superlative variant, i.e., Honor 50 Pro+ is said to be powered by flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888G SoC chipset.
The Honor 50 Pro+ is said to feature a 6.79-inch QHD+ AMOLED Display with amazing 120Hz screen refresh rate. The device is said to run on Android 11, coupled with 8GB RAM & 128GB internal storage. The device comes in a sleek design, which packs a 4,400mAh battery with 66W wired charging & 50W wireless charging support.
As appealing as these features seem, the most distinctive feature of Honor 50 smartphone series will be Google Mobile Services support. Yes, it is true, Honor has received a seal of approval to start using Google Mobile Services on its devices.
So, this means that Honor 50 series smartphones will have Google’s leading applications namely, YouTube, Gmail, Assistant, etc. and an access to Google Play Store as well.
Well, this comes as a surprise because the company was not allowed to use GMS services before, when Honor was a part of Huawei. Before, Honor was debarred from doing business with companies such as Google, AMD, Qualcomm, Intel and more.
However, earlier in this year when Honor parted its way from Huawei, the former company was reported to start having a word with other companies and obtained the opportunity to do business with them.
So, this is pretty much everything about the upcoming Honor 50 series till now, but we will surely see more of it on the day of its launch.
