Honor unveiled its MagicOS 7.0 user interface and Honor 80 series at a major event in China today, alongside the new Foldable Magic Vs. The Honor 80 and 80 Pro bring 160 megapixel main cameras, Qualcomm chipsets and curved OLED displays. The Honor 80 SE is the affordable entry-level model with a Dimensity 900 processor and a 64-megapixel main camera.
The Honor 80 sports a 6.67-inch curved OLED display with a resolution of 2,400 × 1,080 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. A 32-megapixel selfie camera sits in a punchhole in the middle. It is powered by the just announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G chipset, which succeeds the Snapdragon 778G+.
Both models run MagicOS 7 based on Android 12 and bring 4,800 mAh batteries with wired 66 watt fast charging. Color options are black, green, blue, and pink.
The Honor 80 starts at CNY 2,699 ($377) with 8/256 GB, the 12/512 GB version at CNY 3,299 ($460).
Honor 80 Pro
The Honor 80 Pro is the star of the show. This is partly due to its curved 6.78-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2,700 × 1,224 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The 10-bit panel has two cameras – a 50-megapixel selfie camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. At its heart is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. The slightly underclocked version uses a Cortex-X2 core with 3.0 GHz (instead of 3.2 GHz) and three Cortex-A710 Gold cores with 2.5 GHz instead of 2.75 GHz.
When it comes to cameras, both Honor phones share the same 160-megapixel main camera. It is based on a 1/1.56-inch sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, each combining 16 0.75 µm pixels. A revised image engine with improved scene and skin texture recognition as well as improved AI RAW algorithms should improve image quality. There is also an AI vlog mode for social media friends.
The Pro also has a 50 megapixel ultra wide camera and a 2 megapixel depth sensor. The base model has a slightly less powerful camera setup with an 8-megapixel ultrawide and the same 2-megapixel depth sensor.
The Honor 80 Pro starts at CNY 3,499 ($490) for the 8/256 GB model and goes up to CNY 4,099 ($573) for the 12/512 GB model.
Honor 80 SE
Starting at CNY 2,399 ($334), the Honor 80 SE offers a 6.67-inch curved OLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The 10-bit panel supports 1,920Hz PWM dimming and brings a 32 megapixel selfie camera in a punch hole.
There’s a 64-megapixel main camera alongside a 5-megapixel ultrawide and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The SE is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset and a 4,600 mAh battery that charges with 66 watts via cable.
The Honor 80 SE is available in Black, Crystal, Blue and Pink colors. Pre-orders in China begin today, while open sales are scheduled for December 9th.
