With three variants, the Honor 70, 70 Pro, and 70 Pro+, the Honor 70 series has finally broken cover in China. The only difference between the Pro phones and the vanilla Honor 70 is the chipset, while the Honor 70 is the cheapest of the three.
Let’s take a look at the Honor 70 Pro and Pro+, which both provide flagship-level specs without the premium price.
Display and Design
The Honor 70 Pro and Pro+, as previously said, are essentially identical, even in terms of design. They both have the same 6.78-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 1200 x 2652px, 1 billion colors, a refresh rate of 120Hz, and 1,920Hz high-frequency PWM dimming.
The optical fingerprint sensor is located beneath the screen, which is slightly curved on the sides.
Internals and Storage
The chipset is the only difference between the two phones. The Honor 70 Pro comes with MediaTek’s high-end Dimensity 8000 SoC, while the Honor 70 Pro+ comes with the flagship-grade Density 9000. Both phones have 8/12GB RAM and 256GB storage, but for some reason, only the non-plus model includes a 512GB option.
You get Android 12 with Magic UI 6.1 on top, however, there is no Google Play Services in the Chinese version.
On both phones, the camera arrangement is the same. They have a 54MP wide-angle Sony IMX800 1/1.49″ primary sensor, a 50MP ultrawide camera, and an 8MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. The ultrawide camera may also be used as a macro sensor, while the telephoto lens has optical image stabilization and up to 30x digital zoom.
The 50MP selfie camera also has a 100-degree field of view, making it an ultrawide photographer.
Battery and Pricing
Both Pro phones include a 4,500 mAh battery cell that, thanks to 100W rapid charging, can charge to 100% in 30 minutes.
The Honor 70 Pro+ starts at $645, while the Honor 70 Pro starts at $555. In a few months, we expect the phones to hit the global market with slightly altered price tags.
