Photo Announcement. Honor 80 Pro - either a mid-ranger with a flagship chipset, or a semi-flagship

Today is Honor's big smartphone announcement day. Represented Honor 80, Honor 80 Pro, Honor 80 SE, Honor Magic Vs...

This news is about Honor 80 Pro. About Honor 80 read separate news. Although, in general, these two are a pretty logical sweet couple. They have the same batteries, chargers, main cameras, amount of memory. Otherwise, the "proshka" is more powerful and more expensive. And larger.

So. Honor 80 Pro. The iron stuffing is flagship. Chipset Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, i.e. in AnTuTu it can easily be for a million parrots. (For comparison, Honor 80 has Snapdragon 782G and points in AnTuTu can easily be half as much).

There is a lot of memory. 8 or 12 GB of RAM, 256 or even as much as 512 GB of permanent. Memory cards are not supported.

Screen. Deeply rounded 6.78" (112 cm²) OLED panel. High resolution 1224x2700 (437 ppi). Refresh rate up to 120 Hz. (Honor 80 has a slightly smaller screen, 6.67").

The capacity of the battery is average, 4800 mAh. Charging is pleasantly fast - 66 W.

Cameras. Everything is ambiguous with cameras.

The front camera is double (50 + 2 MP), so I had to make a solid cutout in the screen. Strong core module - ethat's good. But the use of the depth sensor, as for me, is very doubtful.

There are three rear cameras - 160 + 50 + 2 MP (main, wide-angle and one more depth sensor). The main sensor is large, 1 / 1.56 ". It is not yet clear who is and what he really can do. Previously, no one had cameras with exactly the same resolution in smartphones. There is no point in guessing about the quality of photos, we are waiting for reviews. But it is worth noting that optical stabilization missing... But I can only warmly welcome a serious high-resolution wide-angle camera.

Other. Has NFC modul, Wi-Fi 6 and a fingerprint scanner hidden under the screen. No standard audio output.

Prices (especially if you take into account the flagship hardware) do not seem very high. ¥3499 (₽29600, $489), ¥3799 (₽32200, $531) and ¥4099 (₽34700, $573) for the 8+256, 12+256 and 12+512GB varieties respectively.
