Honor’s latest flagship duo made its debut in China yesterday. With the Monikers Honor 90 and Honor 90 Pro, both newcomers bear slight improvements over their forerunners. The high point of this lineup is a revitalized 200MP primary camera sensor, which we will discuss in-depth as we progress further in the article.

Honor 90

On the forefront of vanilla-Honor lies a captivating 6.7-inch OLED display. Adorned with a sharp 2664 x 1200 pixels resolution, the screen showcases a palette of 1 billion colors. It also boasts a 120Hz refresh rate and proudly retains a peak brightness of 1,600 nits.

Underneath the vanilla Honor-90’s hood resides the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset. It draws power from a 5000mAh battery rated for 66W charging compatibility. Both new Honor devices lack wireless charging. The memory hub on board has multiple configurations, 12/256 GB, 16/256 GB, and the highest end, 16/512 GB. 

On the front, the Honor 90 has the same 50 MP f/2.4 selfie camera as the Pro variant; meanwhile, on the rearing end lies a 200 MP primary sensor, coupled with a 12MP ultra-wide lens and 2MP depth sensor. While optical image stabilization is absent, the phone compensates with EIS. It starts at a modest price of $355 (~PKR 101,000).

Honor 90 Pro

At the pinnacle of Honor’s latest series is the Honor 90 Pro which boasts a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. Drawing power from a 5000mAh battery, the phone impresses with a 90W charging hub capable of refilling 56% of the cell in 15 minutes. 

Among its intriguing specs is a 6.78-inch 10-bit AMOLED panel with soft curves on the sides and a pill-shaped cutout on the forehead. The screen has a 2700 x 1224p resolution, a 120 Hz refresh rate, HDR support, and over 1,000 nits of brightness. Centered in the cutout are two selfie shooters, 50MP-main and 2MP depth.

Honor 90 Pro showcases an enhanced primary ISOCELL HP3 sensor now featuring 200MP resolution. Using 16-to-1 pixel-binning, the pixels can expand to 2.24μm. The accompanying wide-angle shooter has a 12 MP sensor, while the tertiary 32 MP portrait lens flexes 2.5x optical zoom and OIS.

In essentials, Honor 90 Pro brings 3840 Hz UHF PWM dimming, Android 13 support, stereo speakers, and NFC. With three storage options (12+256GB / 16 +256GB / 16+512GB) and four attractive colors (Silver, Black, Green, and Ice Feather Blue), the phone starts at $465 (~PKR 132,000).
