Honor 80 Global Release Date, Price & Specs



Honor has pulled back the covers on its latest mid-range series of devices: the Honor 80 range.

Here’s all we know so far about the trio of phones, which are out now in China, but could still launch in the rest of the world.

When will the Honor 80 series be released worldwide?

Honor announced three Honor 80 phones in China on 22 November, alongside the Magic Vs folding phone: the Honor 80, 80 Pro, and 80 SE.

The Magic Vs is confirmed to be getting a global launch, including Europe, but Honor hasn’t yet made any such promise about the 80 series. From the Honor 70 range, only the standard model made it to the UK and Europe, so it’s possible we’ll see a similar limited release, most likely some time in early 2023.

How much does the Honor 80 cost?

So far we only have pricing for the three phones in China, which we’ve taken the liberty of converting approximately into other currencies:

Honor 80: From ¥2,699 (around $375/£310/€360/₹30,500)Honor 80 Pro: From ¥3,499 (around $485/£400/€465/₹39,500)Honor 80 SE: From ¥2,399 (around $330/£275/€320/₹27,000)

For comparison, when the Honor 70 launched in the UK and Europe it cost £479/€549, so you should expect any follow-up to cost at least that much when it launches internationally.

What are the Honor 80 specs?

Since there are three phones in the series, let’s break them down one by one, starting with the standard model.

The Honor 80 is naturally the default model in the series, and the one most likely to launch globally.

Honor

It boasts a 6.67in 120Hz OLED display, and is powered by the new mid-range Snapdragon 782G chipset, which can be paired with up to 12GB RAM and 512GB storage. Power comes from a generous 4800mAh battery, with 66W wired charging to go with it.

On the rear you’ll find a super high resolution 160Mp main camera, using a 1/1.56in sensor and a fairly fast f/1.8 aperture – though there’s no optical stabilisation. It’s joined by an 8Mp ultrawide, 2Mp macro, and a 32Mp punch-hole selfie on the front.

As for the design, it’s available in a range of colours – black, green, blue, and pink – and is impressively thin and light, at 7.7mm thick and 180g respectively.

It ships running MagicOS 7 on top of Android 12.

The 80 Pro doesn’t change too much, but has a few key upgrades. The big one is arguably the jump to the much more powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, which makes this a true flagship in terms of pure performance.

It’s a little larger, with a 6.78in display, which also makes it slightly thicker and heavier. Despite that the battery is actually the same capacity, and the design is otherwise similar apart from an infinity flourish to the camera module.

The other big spec jump is the upgrade to a 50Mp ultrawide camera on the rear, while the selfie camera is swapped out for a dual system with a 50Mp main selfie camera and a 2Mp depth sensor for improved portrait shots.

Finally, we have the more budget-friendly Honor SE – probably the least likely of the set to reach the West.

This doesn’t skimp as much as you might expect though, still packing a similar 6.67in curved OLED display to the regular 80, with the same selfie camera too.

It drops down to a MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset, and although the battery is a touch smaller at 4600mAh, charging speeds remain the same.

The rear camera is downgraded to a 64Mp main lens, 5Mp ultrawide, and 2Mp depth sensor.

Obviously, we won’t have to wait long to test some of the phones out ourselves, as well as find out which models will make it to the various territories around the world. We’ll update this article when those details are announced, so until then take a look at our best smartphone chart to see the competition the 80 series will have to beat.
