Honor 50 finally hits first international market with GMS, $400 price tag
The Honor 50 will be the first phone of the now independent smartphone company with Google Mobile Services. We expect it to hit Europe on October 27, but it has just been introduced in Malaysia. The device is already up for pre-order with two memory options and in all four colors, including the Honor Code design.
The Honor 50 helped Honor to an impressive rebound in China. It comes with Snapdragon 778G chipset and a 6.57" OLED display of 120Hz refresh rate.
The phone packs a 108MP main camera and an 8MP ultra-wide unit on its back, as well as a 4,300 mAh battery with 66W fast charging inside.
The Android 11 is skinned with Magic UI 4.2 and you will find the full Google Suite operational right out of the box.
The price of the Honor 50 in Malaysia is MYR1,699 ($407) for the 6/128 GB memory variant, while the 8/256 GB version is MYR1,999 ($479). Those who pre-order the cheaper version will get a free hand strap case and extended warranty, while getting the larger storage nets you the Earbuds 2 Lite TWS earphones, which we recently reviewed.

It seems a good device, presumably its price will decide its fate, and it looks a bit high for a bet. They should have been more aggressive on pricing. Will Honor support the device for many years? Why debuting with 4.2 software instead of 5? How wil...
