Honor has launched the Honor 70 series, which comprises three models, including the first number series flagship since the Honor 30 Pro+. The Honor 70 Pro and Pro+ are very similar, with the main difference being the chipset (both contain MediaTek Dimensity chips), whereas the Honor 70 is the cheaper option.
Honor 70 Pro+
The Dimensity 9000, a flagship 4nm chipset with a Cortex-X2 CPU core (3.05GHz), three A710, four A510, and a Mali-G710 MC10 GPU, as well as a new sub-6GHz 5G modem, powers the Honor 70 Pro+. Up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage are available on the Pro+.
The front-facing 6.78" OLED display is a 10-bit screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1,920Hz high-frequency PWM dimming. It can show video in the "HDR Vivid" format, primarily developed by Huawei.
The Sony IMX800, a 1/1.49" sensor with 54MP resolution and 1.0m pixels (2.0m with binning), is used in all three variants. It's added to the primary camera, hidden behind an aperture of f/1.9.It is joined by a 50MP ultra-wide camera that also functions as a macro camera (focus distance of 2.5cm/1"). The Pro and Pro+ variants include an 8MP telephoto module with 3x optical magnification (up to 30x digital), and OIS is included in the Pro and Pro+ variants. Finally, there's a 50MP punch hole camera on the front with a broad 100° field of view.
The Honor 70 series has a Vlog mode that takes advantage of AI and the cameras' wide field of view to maintain you and the subjects in the frame. Yes, you and your subjects can simultaneously capture video with the phone's front and back cameras, with image stabilisation and AI beautifying application.
Honor has revamped its charging technology, and the Pros now have a 100W output. This allows the 4,500mAh battery to reach 60 percent charge in 15 minutes (up from 50 percent on the 60 Pro) and 100 percent charge in 30 minutes.
Let's start with the price: the Honor 70 Pro+ with 8GB RAM and 256 GB storage is now available for pre-order in China for INR 50,000. For INR 53,000, you can have a version with 12GB of RAM and the same storage. On June 16, the first units will be available.

As you may have guessed, the ordinary Pro is powered by the Dimensity 8000, a mid-range 5nm chip with older Cortex-A78/A55 CPU cores but a new Mali-G610 MC6 GPU (obviously, a mid-range GPU, unlike the G710).
Surprisingly, there is a 512GB version of this model. However, the base model is 256GB. In any case, here are the costs.
The 70 Pro has 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage and should cost around INR 43,000. Then there's the 12/256GB model, which should cost about INR 46,586, and the 12/512GB variant, which may cost around INR 51,245.04 when launched.
