And the brand is no longer subject to restrictions on American technology.

NOT ONE, BUT THREE HONOR 50 FORMALIZED
In fact, Honor wants to return to the “game”. For that, you need products. Earlier this month, Honor made an appointment with its community for a launch. The conference took place yesterday. And it concerned the Honor 50 and its various variations. The Honor 50 has been the subject of several leaks in recent weeks. But we were surprised to learn that there was not only a “Pro” version , but also a “SE” version .

It can display up to 1 billion different colors . Its refresh rate is 120 Hz . A punch is visible on the front for a 32-megapixel selfie sensor . It is curved on the two side edges. And the icing on the cake, a fingerprint reader is integrated there.
At the back, you find a photo module with four sensors: a very large one in the upper circle and three smaller ones (with a flash) in the lower circle. The biggest is a 108 megapixel sensor (which you also find at Xiaomi for example). The other three are 8-megapixel (wide-angle), 2-megapixel (macro) and again 2-megapixel (depth calculation) models. A configuration not very original.
Inside the Honor 50, you will find a trendy premium mid-range platform with a Snapdragon 778G from Qualcomm (successor to the Snapdragon 765G), 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage depending on the version.

The nature of the touch screen is identical (OLED, 120 Hz, Full HD +, integrated fingerprint reader). But here she is 6.72 inches . And it is curved. The processor is also the same (Snapdragon 778G), The storage options are the same (128 GB or 256 GB), but there are two configurations for the RAM: 8 GB or 12 GB .
