Honor 50 series unveiled with 120Hz displays, 108MP cameras and GMS support

16 June 2021
The Honor 50, Honor 50 Pro and Honor 50 SE were announced in China earlier today. They will be available in over 40 regions internationally later this year.

Sort by:

I had high hopes for the Series 50 but it doesn't seem to fit my needs. Currently I use an Honor View 20 and I am very happy with it but after 2.5 years the battery is beginning to fail.
Anyway, can anyone recommend a phone with the following specs:
- Android 11 with Google services
- earphones jack
- dual SIM
- either 256GB of RAM or MicroSD (with its separate slot, not on SIM2)
- decent fingerprint sensor
- NFC
- I don't care about one billion megapixel cameras!
- available in Europe/UK

Thank you.

Even in 3rd w0rld countries, screencasting and WiFi transfer is the norm.

How is that 300-500mbps speed helping?

It's clear you have slow intent connection/WiFi speeds and you also have outdated TV.
Translation: you are in no position to criticize others who connect everything wirelessly these days.

Sad that only the pro got the side camera. A camera in the middle is super ugly and distracting.

Plus it's not free, you act like I'll go to a store and trade in my TV for a 8K QLED one.
Where I live the upload speeds on Wi-Fi is less than 150 KB/s, that would take days to backup my data via Wi-Fi, meanwhile with USB 3.1 I reach 300-500 MB/s and backup my data in a few mins...

Ugly punch-holes ruin the device for me

And does the TV need to have Wi-Fi for screen mirroring? TVs with HDMI ports are more common than TVs with HDMI+Wi-Fi, and probably cheaper as well.

I know data cable is faster yet I never connect my phone to PC or TV through a cable, it's all through screencasting or WiFi

Just like google maps for example, when we (normal people) had access to it, the army had been using it for a long time also. What do i mean? Its exactly the other way around of what you said. "They" already have drones with camera tech years far from what we know, also satellites and many other things.

Pity they didn't go with a better sensor than the hm2. The shutter speed is so slow on that sensor. Looks like they can't get the Huawei exclusive imx sensors since the split. Sony hasn't released any new good sensor for ages that is open to all brands so there aren't many options. Strange that there was no successor to the imx686

Is it going to launch in India as well? If yes, then when can we expect this one?

Big phones suck..
Plus, all these ultra-high pixel sensors will be later used in surveillance drones..
we are paving the way to make them just more affordable..

No one needs 108MP..
