Pricing and Availability

There’s no official word on pricing at the time of writing, but we’d expect the new models to stay quite close to the ones they supersede. This means we can use the Honor 80 series prices as a reliable guide, although, as they only released in China, it’s a bit loose on what European pricing might 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 reference, the standard Honor 70 did appear in European markets, priced at £479/€549 (approx $590).

o far we’ve only seen the Honor 90 and 90 Pro models teased, so it looks like we may have to wait for the SE and GT variants, if they are planned at all for this release cycle.

Release Date

The official Honor Weibo account has posted an announcement that the Honor 90 and Honor 90 Pro will be unveiled in China on May 29. This makes it just around six months since the Honor 80 series launch, which is in keeping with the pattern we’ve seen in the past, as the Honor 70 phones arrived half a year before the 80 series.

Additional Features

Both the Honor 90 and Honor 90 Pro are said to include a range of additional features, such as an in-display fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass/ magnetometer, gyroscope, and NFC. The devices are also expected to run on Android 12 with MagicOS 7.0.

The Honor 90 Pro is rumored to have an IP68 water and dust resistance rating, which means it can withstand up to 1.5 meters underwater for up to 30 minutes. Additionally, the Pro model is expected to support 120W fast battery charging and 60W fast wireless charging.

Final Thoughts

The Honor 90 and Honor 90 Pro are shaping up to be impressive flagship smartphones, with powerful performance, stunning displays, and advanced camera capabilities. While we await their official unveiling on May 29, it’s clear that these devices are set to make a mark in the competitive smartphone market.
