The Honor 50 Pro is a slightly more expensive version of the Honor 50. It boasts a larger and more vibrant display, a more capable selfie camera system, reduced RAM and storage options, and a faster charging speed thanks to 100W fast charging support. However, the Honor 50 Pro’s other specifications and features are identical to those of its less expensive sibling.

Honor 50 Pro Key Specs & Features
Display and Design
The design of the Honor 50 Pro differs only slightly from that of its less expensive sibling.
In fact, the distinguishing feature is actually the display. Onboard, we have a larger 6.72-inch display with a dual camera cutout, in comparison to the standard Honor 50, which sports a smaller 6.57-inch display with a punch-hole camera.
In terms of the display, it has a resolution of 1236 x 2676 pixels and a density of about 439 pixels per inch, as opposed to 1080 x 2340 pixels and 392 pixels per inch on its standard model. The display on both smartphones also has a 120Hz refresh rate.
Moving on to the back panel, we have essentially the same design. We have the gradient style, which is identical in terms of colour options. Frost Crystal, Amber Red, Emerald Green, and Midnight Black are among the colors available.
Additionally, the prominent camera module in two circles is present, as is the OEM branding, indicating that this is an Honor smartphone.
The main highlight of the Honor 50’s camera system is its front-facing camera. In this case, we have a dual-camera system on the front, as opposed to the single-camera system on its regular sibling. This dua-setup features a 32MP primary camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a 12MP ultrawide camera with an f/2.4 aperture and a 100-degree field of view.
The same quad-camera arrangement is found on the back, with a 108MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.9, a 2MP depth camera, and a 2MP macro camera, all with an aperture of f/2.4. Finally, there is an 8MP ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.2 and a field of view of 120 degrees.
Hardware and software
Despite being a professional Android smartphone, the Honor 50 Pro’s features aren’t that far from those of the regular Honor 50. Both smartphones are classified as smartphones.
Both smartphones are in the same category and share similar features, however they are not identical. We only have the 8GB RAM / 256GB storage variant here, which means we won’t be getting the 128GB variant on its less expensive sibling. The charging power was also increased from 66 to 100 watts.
Furthermore, we get a little smaller 4000 mAh battery compared to 4300mAh on the less expensive Honor 50, which is kind of amusing because we have faster charging speed on a smaller battery, making for an unusual duo. A bigger battery capacity should ideally be matched with a faster charging speed.
On the software side, we have the Magic UI 4.2 on the operating system Android 11. Please keep in mind that Google Play services are only available in a limited number of market regions.
This smartphone comes with USB Type-C, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and Wi-Fi / Hotspot. Please note that no 3.5mm headphone jack is available, and private audio hearing is done via Type-C headphones or wireless headphones.
Because internet connectivity is limited to 5G, enthusiasts will be able to access 5G internet speeds in areas with 5G reception.
Price and Availability
Honor 50 Pro pricing begins at around $745, which equates to approximately 315,000 Naira in Nigeria, 61,850 Kenyan Shillings in Kenya, and 3,345 Ghanaian Cedis in Ghana.
Honor 50 Pro was announced on June 16th, 2021, and will go on sale on June 25th, 2021.
