While we are a week away from the official announcement of the HONOR 50 series, the Pro version was spotted in AnTuTu, giving us more details about its Snapdragon 778G processor and some key features.
In the said listing, the HONOR 50 Pro is said to have 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB UFS 2.2 internal storage. Interestingly, it will run Android 11, which might mean that it will have Google Services—all Huawei and HONOR phones that don’t have Google Services and use App Gallery instead are stuck in Android 10.
Moving on to the AnTuTu score, the HONOR 50 Pro scored almost 526k—which is around 30% higher than the overall score obtained on most devices using a Snapdragon 765G processor. In fact, the Snapdragon 778G did score slightly higher than a Snapdragon 780G—though there are only a number of phones using the said processor for now. As for the display, the HONOR 50 Pro will have a 120hz AMOLED display.
In the teasers for the HONOR 50 series, the Pro model is expected to have 100w wired charging (66w for the vanilla model), and is reported to have a 108-megapixel f/1.8 main rear camera (while the vanilla model will settle for a 50-megapixel snapper instead). The HONOR 50 series will have a dual-ring design similar to Huawei’s upcoming P50 series, though current renders that are out show that the HONOR 50 series will not have a periscope camera.
We should know more about HONOR’s latest flagship phone come June 16, and while it is confirmed to rock a Snapdragon processor, the next big question is if the HONOR 50 series will be having Google Services as HONOR is now independent from Huawei.
