Finally, Honor has unveiled the Honor 50 series in China. The series includes Honor 50, Honor 50 Pro, and Honor 50 SE. The first two smartphones are similar to each other with some slight changes. Let’s have a look at the specifications, features, expected price, and availability of the Honor 50 in Nepal.

Honor 50 Overview:

Display and Design

Here, Honor 50 sports a 6.57-inch 75-degree curved AMOLED screen with a center-aligned punch-hole cutout. It has a Full HD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080. Pixels resulting in a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 392-PPI density.

The panel brings a 120Hz dynamic refresh rate and a 300Hz touch sampling rate. Due to the dynamic refresh rate, the battery will last longer. Further, it has a contract ratio of 5,000,000:1, covers up to 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, and supports 10 bit 10 billion colors.

Honor 50 Design

The phone is quite slim and light, measuring 7.7mm thickness and weighing 175g. There is a pill-shaped camera bump on the back housing a quad-camera setup and a LED flash. “Honor” branding is placed on the bottom left corner otherwise the rear panel is quite clean and pleasing. It is available in four different color options: Amber Red, Emerald Green, Frost Crystal, and Midnight Black.


Honor has highlighted the camera the most. As I mentioned earlier, it has a quad-camera setup on the back. The top ring on the camera module encloses a 108MP primary sensor with a 1/1.52-inch sensor and 9 to 1 pixel binning to produce 12MP images. If you want a 108MP shot, you can manually turn ON the 108MP mode.

The remaining three sensors are not so interesting. There is an 8MP ultrawide lens and a pair of 2MP units for macro shots and depth data. There is good news for vloggers, Honor has included a special Vlog mode that allows users to capture video from the front and back camera at the same time.

On the front, it has a 32MP selfie snapper with a 1/3.14-inch sensor. One interesting feature of the front camera is the portrait video that gives a bokeh effect to your video.

Performance and Memory

Honor 50 and 50 Pro are the first smartphones to packs Qualcomm’s brand new Snapdragon 778G chipset. It is a 5G chipset based on 6nm technology. The chipset features an eight-core CPU with a maximum clock speed of up to 2.4GHz. Handling the graphics is Adreno 642L GPU.

Honor 50 Processor

Now, you can enjoy Google Play Services on Honor 50 series outside China which is good news to hear. The phone is packed with 8GB RAM paired with either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.

Honor 50 GPU X Mode

GPU Turbo X is a graphics acceleration technology of software and hardware collaboration, which can efficiently process game screens under low power consumption.

Rest of the Specs

Fueling the phone is a 4300mAh battery that has support for 66W fast wired charging. According to the company, the 66W charger can charge the phone from 0 to 70 percent in just 20 minutes.

It features 5G, dual-SIM, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/6 (dual-band), Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, NFC, Radio, and USB Type-C port. A disappointing part of this phone is the missing stereo speaker setup and 3.5mm headphone jack.
