Together with the Honor 70 5G smartphone, Honor today introduced the Honor 70 Pro and Honor 70 Pro+ models. The difference between them is in the SoC: the Pro version uses the Dimensity 8000, and the Pro + uses the Dimensity 9000. Thus, in terms of performance, the Honor 70 Pro + bypasses most Android flagships, including the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. During the presentation, the new devices were actively compared with the iPhone 13, of course, not in favor of Apple smartphones.
The emphasis of the new products is on cameras. Thus, the resolution of the frontal camera embedded in the display is 50 megapixels. The screen itself is characterized by a diagonal of 6.78 inches and a frame rate of 120 Hz. The fingerprint scanner is under the screen.
The main camera system is the same for these models. The main sensor is the latest Sony IMX800 with a resolution of 54 megapixels. The optical format is 1 / 1.49 inches, so for the niche of mid-range smartphones, which include the Honor 70, it is large. There’s also a 50-megapixel sensor with an ultra wide-angle lens and an 8-megapixel one with a telephoto lens that provides 3x optical zoom (this module has an optical image stabilization system). For processing photos and videos, including in HDR mode, the proprietary image processor Honor Image Engine is responsible.
