HONOR went to IFA 2022 to launch its latest smartphone globally, the HONOR 70.

It may not be a proper flagship, but the HONOR 70 sure looks a lot like one. It has a sleek, curved screen with thin bezels, a special Crystal Silver option with diamond patterns, and dual-curved arcs.


The device uses a fancy 6.67-inch OLED panel with a speedy 120Hz refresh rate. A punch-hole in the middle holds the 32-megapixel selfie camera that can do HDR Self Portraits.

On the back, we have an interesting 54-megapixel IMX800 Super Sensing main camera with an f/1.9 aperture. Below it is another sharp 50-megapixel main camera that can do ultra-wide and macro shots. While the one on top is just a depth sensor.


The camera has smart features like Auto Tracking, Intelligent Memory, and more.

Under the hood, it is powered by a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G Plus octa-core processor, mated to 8GB of RAM and an option between 128GB or 256GB of expandable storage.


The device then ships with the latest Android 12-based Magic UI 6.1 software.

To keep its slim profile, the device only gets to have a 4,800mAh battery, which is still not too shabby. The best part is, that it comes with a 66W SuperCharge adapter in the box.


The HONOR 70 is now available in Europe for a price of EUR549 (around Php30,900) and EUR599 (around Php33,800) for the 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB, respectively. The company just announced its comeback in the Philippines, so we might see this device locally soon.
