Honor 80 Pro+ will feature flagship hardware and an unusual 160 megapixel camera sensor

Honor recently launched the 70 series on the market, but as we’ve become accustomed to from Chinese companies, it looks like we’ll be getting another series of superior mid-range and even flagship models in the very near future. The Honor 80 range is already in the final stages of development and we have information on the capabilities of all three models. It looks like the Honor 80 Pro+ will be a true flagship, with high-end chipset and a new camera with unusual resolution.

The mid-range Honor 80 series will aim for flagship features

According to Digital Chat Station, the China-based leaker active on the social network Weibo, the Honor 80 Pro+, the top variant of the series, will integrate a 160-megapixel photo sensor. This would be the first phone with such a sensor. Apparently some prototypes of the phone used a 200-megapixel sensor, but Honor has changed its mind, probably saving such a sensor for more expensive models.

The phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, so it will offer top-notch performance, and the other two cameras on the back will both have 50-megapixel resolution, using Sony IMX890 sensors. The phone will feature a 1200p resolution display, unusual in the market but common on higher-end Honor and Huawei phones, with 120Hz refresh rate and 100W fast charging.

This phone will take the next lower spot below the Magic5 series, to be announced on November 23. The rest of the Honor 80 models will be significantly more limited in performance.

The Honor 80 Pro will be a mid-ranger with even slightly outdated hardware, with the company opting for last year’s Snapdragon 778G chipset, while the base model, the Honor 80, will use MediaTek’s Dimensity 1080.

Given that the Honor Magic4 was equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, it’s likely that the new model will either be one of the first to adopt the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (even before Qualcomm’s official announcement), or it will adopt MediaTek’s new Dimensity 9200, which is currently the most powerful chipset officially announced.
