Honor 50 Pro+: how it will be the first top of the range after the farewell to Huawei

Honor 50 Pro+ will be a true top of the range Android, with all the technical features necessary to compete with the most emblazoned models already on the market.

Born in 2013 as an economic brand of the Huawei group, since November 2020 Honor is completely independent from the Chinese giant in trouble because of the famous ban of Donald Trump (that the successor Joe Biden does not seem at all willing to loosen). For about six months, therefore, fans of the brand have been waiting for the first top of the range of the new era and, now, the wait is almost over.

It's called Honor 50 Pro+ and it won't have any of the restrictions and compromises suffered by Huawei's latest smartphones: it will have a Qualcomm processor, the best, it will have Google's Android operating system (including the famous Google Mobile Services, which serve to improve the user experience of apps), and it will have a technical card of a true top of the range, from the screen to the cameras, passing through battery and charger. This can only reassure and make happy Honor fans but also the company, which has taken the opportunity of detachment from Huawei to make another final leap: from the mid-range market to the high, indeed premium.

Honor 50 Pro+, technical characteristics

The presence in the control room of the powerful Snapdragon 888 chip would be in itself a guarantee of a technical card almost without compromise. And the advances on Honor 50 Pro + spread by the Chinese portal Master Lu in fact confirm it.

To flank the best chip of the world leader Qualcomm there would be 8 GB of RAM memory type LPDDR5 and 128 GB of internal memory type UFS 3.1, but are expected more variants and this would be the least equipped. Honor 50 Pro+ is expected to have a large 6.79-inch diagonal OLED display with QHD+ resolution, HDR10+ technology and 120 Hz refresh rate. In other words, the best that the industry can offer in 2021.

The photographic compartment should not be any less, an area on which manufacturers are called to make a difference on the competition especially in the top of the range segment. On the back of Honor 50 Pro+ are expected four cameras: the main 50-megapixel camera, a 13-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens and finally a 3D ToF sensor. To ensure perfect self-shots in all conditions, the designers would have arranged on the front surface of Honor 50 Pro+ as many as two cameras, the first 32 and the second 8-megapixel.

To ensure adequate autonomy there would be a 4,400 mAh battery, but if sometimes they were not enough would come to the aid of ultra fast charging: up to 66 watts via cable, up to 50 watts wirelessly. All in support of the typical Honor user interface, the Magic UI in version 4.0 built on Android 11, on which there would be no lack of Google services, as indeed confirmed in January by the new CEO of Honor.

Honor 50 Pro+, when it arrives

Honor 50 Pro+ will be made official along with the rest of the "minor" versions that will occupy the top of the Honor range. We do not know the day to be circled in red on the calendar, but the well-informed say they are certain that they will arrive by the end of May.

Also uncertain the marketing in Europe, but it would be a shame if the company did not take advantage of the sales channels of Huawei management.
