HONOR has introduced a new sub-flagship device with an old but still powerful Snapdragon 8 series CPU. Check out the new HONOR X50 Pro.

The new HONOR X50 Pro is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, an almost two-year-old chip. It is joined by a generous 12GB of RAM for multitasking and 256GB of storage to store all your apps, files, and photos/videos.


Speaking of photography, it boasts a sharp 108-megapixel main sensor that’s 1/1.67-inch in size and has a bright f/1.75 aperture. There’s no ultra-wide or telephoto lens here, but it does have the obligatory 2-megapixel accomplice. The cameras are inside a large circular island — a classic HONOR look.

On the front, we have a premium 6.78-inch OLED display with a sharp 2652 x 1200 pixel resolution, a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, 1920Hz PWM dimming to keep your eyes safe, and 10-bit color. We also have the fingerprint scanner underneath the display.


There’s a punch-hole on top of the curved screen for the standard 8-megapixel selfie camera.

Finally, keeping the lights on is a relatively large 5,800mAh battery with 35W fast charging. It then runs on Android 13-based MagicOS 7.2, and we’re hoping it will receive the latest Android 14 update.


The HONOR X50 Pro 12GB/256GB is available in China for CNY2,799 (~Php21,800). There is no word yet if it will be unveiled to the global market.
