It uses a Super Dynamic H9000 sensor and the lens also supports 4-in-1 pixel binning technology. The main camera is then accompanied by a 50MP f/2.4 telephoto camera and a 12MP f/2.2 ultrawide. There will be a 50MP selfie cam on the front.

It features a 6.78-inch 120Hz AMOLED display with a peak brightness of 4,000 nits. The handset also packs a 5,200mAh battery with support for 100W wired charging.

Under the hood, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chipset can be found, along with a base of 8GB of RAM, but there is an option to pick a 12GB RAM model. The cameras are also slightly different with the main shooter seeing a slight increase in aperture from f/1.9 to f/1.95.

 

In terms of price, the Honor 200 will start at €599, while the Honor 200 Pro will retail for €799. Pre-orders will kick off on the 21st of June for those who are interested.


Honor Magic V Flip China launch date confirmed

 

Honor has launched foldable phones in the past. But the previous models adopted the smartphone-tablet hybrid design. If you prefer the flip design, Honor is working on such a device. In fact, over in China, the company has confirmed the launch date for the Honor Magic V Flip.

 

According to the announcement, the company will officially unveil the handset on the 13th of June, 2024 at 7:30PM in Shanghai. The full specs of the phone remain a mystery for now. We have heard the rumors that the handset's external display could be the biggest amongst its competitors.

 

The handset is listed on the Honor Mall but it only reveals the RAM and storage configurations. This includes three options - 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, and 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. It also looks like it will be available in Champagne Pink, Camilla White, and Iris Black.

 

Honor has not mentioned anything about a global launch. But seeing as the company operates in various international markets, perhaps global availability of the Honor Magic V Flip could be announced at a later date. If the handset intrigues you, check back with us on June 13 for the official details.


Honor unveils its 4-layer AI architecture approach

 

AI is all the rage these days. As such, it's not surprising to see more companies jumping in and trying to come up with their own solutions. Honor is one of them. At the VivaTech 2024 tradeshow, Honor has announced its own approach to AI which involves the use of a 4-layer architecture.

 

The base layer, which sets the foundation, will create an open AI ecosystem. This allows it to be implemented regardless of what kind of device or platform is being used. This means that computing power and services can be shared across multiple devices.

 

Then there is the Platform-level AI layer. This creates a more personalized operating system with personalized resource allocation, which Honor calls "intent-based human computer interaction". Then there is the third layer which is the App-level AI. This will see the creation of apps that can leverage AI to improve and revolutionize the user experience.

 

Last but not least at the very top is the Interface to Cloud-AI services layer. Honor claims that this will create a "truly holistic and future-forward AI experience" by giving users easy access to cloud services while also protecting their privacy. If you're wondering how all of this will look like in practice, Honor has also announced the upcoming launch of their new Honor 200 Series of phones.

 

The handsets will launch on the 12th of June and while specs are unclear, they will be putting the company's 4-layer AI architecture in practice. Details are scarce on the phone, but one of the main features is improved portrait photography through the use of AI. Honor is even working together with Harcourt Studio, a photography studio in France, to take advantage of their expertise.


Honor unveils its latest luxury smartphone with Porsche Design

 

Honor makes some pretty decent smartphones. But it looks like the company is transitioning to creating luxury smartphones as Honor has announced its latest collaboration with Porsche Design. This has resulted in the creation of the Porsche Design Honor Magic 6 RSR.

 

Both companies initially announced their collaboration back in 2023. The first device in the collaboration came in the form of the Honor Magic V2 RSR Porsche Design, a foldable smartphone. For those who aren't into foldables, then maybe the new Porsche Design Honor Magic 6 RSR could be an alternative.

 

The phone looks rather unique, thanks to the help of Porsche Design, but under the hood, it is essentially the Honor Magic 6 Pro. This means that we're looking at the use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, along with a 6.8-inch OLED display. It also sports the same triple camera setup on the back.

 

One of the main differences is in the RAM, where the Honor Magic 6 RSR offers 24GB of RAM whereas the Honor Magic 6 Pro tops out at 16GB. Honestly, we're not sure who needs that much RAM to begin with, but it's there if you need it.

 

Also, in case it wasn't obvious, the design of the phone looks drastically different from the Magic 6 Pro. It features more angular lines and given that it's designed in collaboration with Porsche Design, it does give off a bit of a sporty vibe. According to Honor, the rear of the phone was inspired by the flyline of Porsche's cars.

 

In terms of price, the Porsche Design Honor Magic 6 RSR is priced at £1,599. It seems that it is only available in Europe for now and it is unclear if there are plans to bring it to other markets.


The Honor Magic 6 RSR Edition comes with a Porsche-Inspired Look

 

Smartphone design is usually a subjective matter, but Honor's Magic 6 RSR Edition is definitely one of the sleekest-looking premium Android phones on the market right now. The new device joins Honor's Magic lineup which includes the 6 Pro and newly-announced Magic 6 Ultimate.

 

The Honor Magic 6 RSR Edition comes with a Porsche-Inspired Look

 

A result of a collaborative effort between Honor and Porsche, the Magic 6 RSR Edition exudes a streamlined-look, with a more hexagonal approach to the rear camera island. This sleek chassis houses a 6.8-inch OLED display, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, a whopping 24GB of RAM and 1TB of internal storage, as well as a 5,600 mAh battery.

 

Going back to the camera, the phone packs a triple camera setup with a 50MP main camera and 50MP ultrawide camera, a 180MP periscope telephoto lens, and a 50MP selfie camera, the latter of which includes 3D face unlock. The Honor Magic 6 RSR will be available in China from March 18 at RMB 9,999 (or roughly $1,400), with a global launch scheduled for Q2, 2024.
