Official HONOR 70 series with 100W charging, 54MP primary camera and more

The HONOR 70 Series is now official. The company has announced three smartphones as part of this series, HONOR 70, HONOR 70 Pro and HONOR 70 Pro+. The three devices were announced in China, as this was a China launch. Do note that these phones are expected to be launched globally as well.

However, HONOR 70 Pro and Pro + are quite similar, but not identical. The HONOR 70 differs slightly in terms of specifications, but all three phones follow a similar design language.

The only difference you’ll notice is on the back, as the camera looks different on the Pro and Pro+ models. The HONOR 70 has separate camera circuits on the back, while the HONOR 70 Pro and 70 Pro+ have a single camera island with two separate ovals.

All three phones have very thin bezels, a cut-out in the middle for the camera, and are made of metal and glass. All the physical buttons are located on the right side of these devices, while the HONOR logo is placed on the back.

However, let’s talk about the HONOR 70 Pro and 70 Pro + first, then move on to the vanilla HONOR 70.

HONOR 70 Pro & Pro +

The HONOR 70 Pro and 70 Pro+ are almost identical when it comes to specifications. The only difference can be found in the processor section. The HONOR 70 Pro is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 8000, while the Pro+ model comes with a Dimensity 9000 SoC. Needless to say, the Pro+ model is more powerful because of that.
