For a long time it was quiet about Honor. Since the spin-off from the former parent company Huawei, the manufacturer has held back with the presentation of new smartphones. No wonder, since Honor would have had to deliver the smartphones like Huawei without Google services.

This has now come to an end, because Honor has a new smartphone for Germany in its luggage, the Honor 50, which is equipped with all Google services such as the Play Store. Does Honor keep its excellent value for money?

OLED with 120 Hz and mid-range chip

The Honor 50 looks at a high-contrast OLED display with 6.5 inches, which offers a resolution befitting its class with 1080 x 2340 pixels. Schick: It is curved to the long sides. The Chinese have not done without a smooth refresh rate of 120 Hz, which is already common in this price range. There is also an optical fingerprint sensor under the panel.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G, which is located in the upper middle class, ensures performance. The chip gives the Honor 50 current connectivity with 5G, WiFi 6, NFC and Bluetooth 5.2. In addition to the overall package, the base model has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The top version is equipped with 8 GB and 256 GB. There is no slot for memory expansion via microSD.

108 MP camera and fast charging

The camera equipment on the back comes with a 108 MP main camera, ultra-wide-angle photos are snapped at 8 MP. In addition, macro optics and a depth sensor are available, each with a resolution of 2 MP. You shoot selfies again in high resolution with 32 MP.

Honor didn’t mess up with the battery: The 4,300 mAh energy bar can be refilled with a whopping 66 watts.

Honor 50: price, start of sales and assessment

The Honor 50 costs € 529 in the basic version with 6/128 GB and € 599 in the top version with 8/256 GB. The smartphone can be ordered from November 2nd, sales start on November 16th.

It is gratifying that Honor is also back in Germany and can offer smartphones with Google services. The new device is not a price-performance breaker compared to competing models from Xiaomi or Realme. We are curious to see how the Honor 50 performs in the test!
