Former Huawei sub-brand Honor has finally announced the global launch of the Honor 50 (opens in new tab), a premium mid-ranger that was released in China earlier this year.
Honor's answer to the best mid-range Android phones comes with a 6.57-inch curved OLED display featuring FHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. It is powered by Qualcomm's 6nm Snapdragon 778G processor, paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
On the back of the phone is a quad-camera setup that includes a 108MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the phone comes equipped with a 32MP front camera. Keeping the lights on is a 4,300mAh battery with support for 66W wired charging. Honor claims it only takes 20 minutes for the phone's battery to be charged from 0% to 70%.
The Honor 50 will be going on sale in more than 40 countries around the world starting November 12. In Europe, the phone has been priced at €529 for the 6GB/128GB version and €599 for the 8GB/256GB version. Unsurprisingly, Honor says it has no plans to launch the phone in North America.
Alongside the global launch of the Honor 50, the company has also launched a new budget phone called the Honor 50 Lite. The phone will be available in Europe soon for a starting price of €299 (about $350). It features a 6.67-inch FHD+ display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 662 chipset, and a quad-camera setup with a 64MP main sensor. The Honor 50 Lite supports 66W wired charging as well, just like the standard Honor 50.
