Overview Honor 70
Android version and market relevance
The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Honor 70 works on Android 12, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2022. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Honor 70, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.
Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because Honor 70 works great with two SIM cards. And since 2020, after the official launch of 5G networks, it has become very important for most buyers that the new smartphone has high-speed mobile Internet. Honor 70 has support for fifth-generation networks, so you can choose it for purchase if it suits you for other characteristics and price.
Screen, body and battery
OLED frameless touchscreen with a diagonal 6.67″ and refresh rate 120 Hz mounted on the front panel Honor 70, thickness 7.9 mm.
The battery in Honor 70 is installed on 4 800 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is a very good indicator, of course there are models with even more volume, but they will probably be more expensive.
In addition to the described features of the body of this smartphone, we will add an important detail. To increase the screen area on the front panel, the producer added very small hole at the top of the screen to fit in a selfie camera and several additional sensors.
Main camera and selfie camera
Let′s briefly describe the cameras in Honor 70. The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 54 MP Wide + 50 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Depth sensor. Why, for example, has multiple lenses in a smartphone camera become the absolute norm on the market today? Because with these smartphones you can take beautiful portraits with blurred backgrounds (this is called the Bokeh effect). And manufacturers have also learned to make software enhancements to photography based on the analysis of frames from each lens. It seems that this is exactly the case when it is better to see once than read about it a hundred times. Therefore, we advise you to take a few shots yourself with the camera of this smartphone.
The front camera has one module: 32 MP Wide. This is a very good selfie-camera, which will shoot high-quality photos, so you share them with your friends in social networks and not only. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.
Processor and Internal Memory
Smartphone received 8-core processor Snapdragon 778G+ 5G (6 nm). If you want to assess the speed of the smartphone and its performance, then do not forget to see how much RAM is installed in it. Honor 70 received 8 GB of RAM, and there is another version of this smartphone with 12 GB of RAM.
And there are options with built-in memory. You can choose 256 GB or 512 GB. .
Price for Honor 70: buy or not to buy?
$405 is the price for Honor 70 at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with a very cool main camera that makes amazing photos and videos, and with a cool selfie camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Above average smartphones from $400 to $500”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.
And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? This model received a very good battery with increased capacity.
Honor 70 will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.

Timeline of news and rumors Honor 70
New Honor 70 series announced in China with prices ranging from $400 to $690
Three new smartphones were introduced in the new series: the basic version of Honor 70 and two Pro versions. Sales begin in early June in China. And the cheapest smartphone is Honor 70 8/256 GB with a price of $400. Let’s see if it’s worth paying more for the Pro version?
I would like to note that Honor produces very beautiful smartphones: they have thin cases (about 8 mm), an edge-to-edge screen with minimal bezels, a vivid and original design of the main camera unit on the back. All smartphones are awesome and stand out from the crowd of monoblocks.
All three smartphones run Android 12 with Magic UI 6.1, without built-in Google services. They also received Dual SIM support, a 5G modem, large OLED screens with support for 120 Hz refresh rates, and a fingerprint sensor built into the screens.
Now let’s look at the differences between the basic Honor 70 version and Honor 70 Pro/Pro+ versions. The first difference is the screen diagonal of 6.67 inches instead of 6.78 for the Pro versions. Secondly, the cameras received a different set of sensors, in the basic version you will get a 32 MP front camera, and a triple main camera with 54 MP Wide modules (Sony IMX800, 1/1.49″ module with a 2.0µm pixels) + 50 MP Ultrawide + 2 MP depth sensor. The third difference is that the basic version has a larger battery capacity (4800 mAh versus 4500 mAh). The fourth difference, probably the most important, is the processor, the basic version has a Snapdragon 778G+, as in the previous Honor 60 model, and the Pro versions received the flagship versions of Mediatek processors.
So, here we have the following price grid for Honor 70 series:
- Honor 70 8/256 GB — $400;
- Honor 70 12/256 GB — $450;
- Honor 70 12/512 GB — $510;
- Honor 70 Pro 8/256 GB — $555;
- Honor 70 Pro 12/256 GB — $600;
- Honor 70 Pro 12/512 GB — $660;
- Honor 70 Pro+ 8/256 GB — $645;
- Honor 70 Pro+ 12/256 GB — $690.
If you decide to buy the Honor 70 Pro version, then which of these two? They differ only in processors, and all other characteristics are exactly the same. The screens are the same — 6.78 inches (10-bit, 120Hz, 1,920Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, video recording in Huawei’s custom HDR Vivid mode).
The camera blocks are completely identical — a triple main camera (54 MP Wide + 8 MP Telephoto + 50 MP Ultrawide), a 50 MP front camera located in a cutout in the screen.
Processors: MediaTek Dimensity 8000 (5 nm) in the regular Pro version, and the Pro+ version received the most modern chipset — MediaTek Dimensity 9000 (4 nm).
Please note that the Pro+ version did not get the 512 GB storage option, and the regular Pro version will be sold with that option storage.
This is the announcement made by Honor in China. We do not know exactly when global sales will start, but in China these smartphones are already available for pre-order, and sales will begin in the first week of June.
