Honor 90: Everything you need to know

Honor is ready to introduce its 90 series of phones, and the rumor mill has been buzzing with details about what we can anticipate when the new models come.

Here’s all we know about the Honor 90 series so far.

When will the Honor 90 be released?

The Honor 90 and Honor 90 Pro will be revealed in China on May 29, according to the official Honor Weibo account.

This puts the Honor 80 series debut at roughly six months, which is consistent with the pattern we’ve observed in the past, since the Honor 70 phones launched half a year before the 80 series.

At the time, it is unknown which models will make it out of China. When the Honor 70 series first debuted, just the regular Honor 70 was available in Europe. None of the 80 series models were sold in Europe, and there’s no word on which ones will be available this time.

Looking at a few more releases, we see that the Honor 50 was also released in Europe, suggesting that Honor has opted to only release every other generation in larger markets. If this is true, the Honor 90 may make its way to these shores.

Expect no launch in the United States, as is customary.

How much will the Honor 90 cost?

At the time of writing, there is no official word on pricing, but we expect the new models will be priced similarly to the ones they replace. This means we can use the Honor 80 series prices as a reliable reference, however because they were only available in China, they are a little skewed in terms of what European pricing may look like.

  • Honor 80 SE: From ¥2,399 (around $350/£290/€330/₹29,000)
  • Honor 80: From ¥2,699 (around $400/£330/€370/₹33,000)
  • Honor 80 GT: From ¥3,299 (around $485/£400/€455/₹40,000)
  • Honor 80 Pro: From ¥3,499 (around $515/£425/€480/₹42,500)
  • Honor 80 Pro with flat display: From ¥3,599 (around $530/£435/€495/₹43,500)

As a point of perspective, the regular Honor 70 was available in European countries for £479/€549 (about $590).

So far, we’ve only seen the Honor 90 and 90 Pro versions previewed, so the SE and GT variants may have to wait, assuming they’re even intended for this release cycle.

What specs and features will we see in the Honor 90?

We already know what the Honor 90 and 90 Pro will look like because Honor published a teaser trailer for the two phones, which also announced the launch date. Here’s the video, courtesy of SparrowNews:

While Honor is yet to announce the specifications of the 90 and 90 Pro models, some trustworthy leakers have shown what we could expect when the new phones arrive.

According to Digital Chat Station on Weibo, the Honor 90 will be powered by a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 CPU, while the Pro variant will be powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. The former is a little step up over the Honor 80’s Snapdragon 782G, since it is more energy efficient, performs better, and is built on a 4nm architecture rather than a 6nm.

The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip in the Honor 90 Pro is the same as the one in the Honor 80 Pro, so it’s possible that the firm believes it’s already strong enough, or that it has modified the software to squeeze more out of this very good chipset.

Honor has officially revealed that the upcoming phones (or at least the Pro variant) will include a 200Mp primary camera. According to GizChina, this might be the same Samsung ISOCELL HP3 sensor that was previously seen in the Honor 80 Pro, but where that model’s resolution was limited to 160Mp, Honor may use its full capability in the next generation.

Another feature expected throughout the range is a 5000mAh battery, however charging may differ, as ITHome recently revealed that the two versions were found on a Chinese certification site, with the Honor 90 listed with a 66W charger and the Honor 90 Pro listed with a 100W charger.

According to recent leaks of the phones’ fronts, the Honor 90 will have a curved edge display and a central aperture for the selfie camera, while the Pro will have a pill-shaped opening, most likely to allow an extra sensor for face unlock and enhanced depth of field in selfies. The Pro display is likely to feature a 1.5K OLED screen, and both variants will be equipped with the latest 3840Hz PWM technology, which should be more efficient.
