New Camera Sensors Launch Honor Series 70

With the new Honor 70 series launch in China, we’re getting a peek at what’s coming later to the global market from the company: three new phones priced between $400 and $650, the Honor 70, Honor 70 Pro, and Honor 70 Pro+.

It is easy to distinguish between them, as the processor, screen size, and camera hardware all increase in value. Even the base Honor 70 looks great. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 778G+, which has up to 12GB RAM and 512GB storage.

There are two high-performance camera sensors in the back supplemented by a dedicated 2MP bokeh sensor for portrait shots. Ultrawide cameras now have powerful sensors that are almost as powerful as primary cameras. This makes sense, as Ultrawide is the second most popular use case for mobile photography.

The 32MP selfie cam is at the top, 120Hz.

The 4800 mAh battery is close to the maximum 5000 mAh found on high-end large phones, plus it can be replenished at 66W of power, which is significantly faster than other established brands.

The Honor 70 Pro is the next upgrade with a larger 6.78-inch display and, more importantly, a dedicated telephoto 3x zoom lens with stabilization (OIS). It is also powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 8000, which is generally more performant than the Snapdragon 778G+.

The 4500 mAh battery is slightly smaller than on the non-Pro Honor 70, perhaps because of the telephoto camera module’s thickness? The battery can be charged at 100W power, which makes it very fast to recharge.

Finally, Honor 70 Pro+ comes with the high-end MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC platform. It is much faster than the Dimensity 8000 and features the most advanced image processing hardware MediaTek has to offer. It would be interesting to see if perceptible image quality (IQ) is induced by the increased computing power of the Dimensity 9000’s image signal processor (ISP).
