Honor 90, 90 Pro now official with 200MP camera, 5000mAh battery, and up to 16GB RAM
The Honor 90 and Honor 90 Pro were unveiled in China today and the company did say that an international version using Google Mobile Services (GMS) will be arriving "soon." As a Huawei sub-unit Honor was banned from using GMS as part of the U.S. restrictions against Huawei. To help Honor break free from these restrictions, the company was sold to a consortium for approximately $15 billion in 2020.

Honor 90 Pro

The Honor 90 Pro features a 6.78-inch AMOLED display sporting a resolution of 1224 x 2700, a 120Hz refresh rate, and more than 1,000 nit brightness. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is under the hood and the rear camera array includes a 200MP main camera with an aperture of f/1.9 and a 1/1.4" image sensor. The main camera supports 16:1 pixel binning which delivers sharper 12MP images with less noise. The ultra-wide camera is backed by a 12MP sensor with a FoV of 112 degrees. There is also a 32MP telephoto camera with 2.5x optical zoom and OIS.

There are two front-facing sensors for selfies and video chats. One is a 50MP main camera and the other is a 2MP depth sensor with 4K video recording. The 5000mAh battery charges at 90W which means they can be charged to 56% after only 15 minutes. The device features dual stereo speakers, NFC, and has MagicUI 7.1 on top of Android 13. The four color options include Silver, Black, Green, and Ice Feather Blue

The version with 12GB of RAM paired with 256GB of storage is priced at CNY3,299 ($465/€435), a variant with 16GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage is tagged at CNY3,599 ($510/€475), and the model with 16GB of RAM paired with 512 GB of storage will cost CNY3,899 ($550/€515). The first sale is expected to take place on June 7th.

The phone will have the same 200MP main camera and 12MP ultra-wide camera as the Pro model, but the telephoto camera is replaced by a 2MP depth sensor. The selfie camera is the same 50MP snapper used on the Honor 90 Pro.

While the battery on the non-Pro Honor 90 is also 5000mAh, it supports 66W charging and 40W Power Delivery (PD) if the proprietary charger is not available.
