Renowned for offering smartphones with attractive value for money, the HONOR brand is doing it again with a brand new product: the HONOR 70. Between its particularly neat design, the quality of its screen, the performance of its camera and its autonomy, this mobile has everything to please.
Photo and video at the heart of the experience
The HONOR 70 is equipped with two main photo sensors. The first is a high-end 54 MP lens, the Sony IMX800. The latest of the brand’s sensors and intended for premium smartphones, the HONOR 70 is the first to integrate it. It offers a very interesting aperture of f/1.9 to capture more light and thus take more detailed and less dark shots. The second is a 50 MP module which has two functions: ultra wide-angle to take a step back when capturing a photo and macro mode to take very close shots of a subject. The device is completed by a sensor dedicated to the depth of field of 2 MP, whose role is to improve the quality of the portrait mode and the bokeh effect. The software image processing is provided by the HONOR Image Engine which manages to sublimate the hardware potential of the device.
HONOR has also given itself the means to shine in video. The HONOR 70 is capable of filming in 4K definition, a feature usually reserved for the most premium smartphones. The smartphone benefits from EIS video stabilization to reduce the effects of tremors. It also becomes a reference for vlog creators thanks to an exclusive feature, the Solo Cut mode. Thanks to this one, you will be able to film two different videos in a single take! One point of view focuses on the scene as a whole, while the other focuses on a selected person. With this mode activated, the subject is always in the center, even if it moves. It is possible to switch the focus to any individual in the field with the touch of a finger, quickly and easily.
Premium design, 120Hz curved screen
The HONOR 70 is also distinguished by its design worthy of the best smartphones on the market. The finishes are impeccable, the mobile is thin and light, so that you forget its presence in your pocket or bag, and the fingerprint reader is integrated under the screen. The colors are original and at the same time convey a feeling of class. Midnight Black and Emerald Green are available to choose from, and a luxury Crystal Silver version is also available on HONOR’s official store for the model with 256 GB of storage.
The 6.67-inch OLED FullView screen is curved at the sides, removing bezels and providing a high screen-to-body ratio for better immersion. The size of the diagonal allows you to benefit from a large display surface, comfortable for watching videos on YouTube or Netflix, for gaming, or for video calls. The screen also has a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz for unparalleled fluidity. This adapts to the content broadcast to better conserve the battery. The panel can display 1.07 billion colors to make the most of the nuances of video and photo content and has a 2400 x 1080 pixel FHD+ definition.
Fast performance and charging
The HONOR 70 is also a fast smartphone in everything it does. It embeds a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G Plus chip engraved in 6nm ensuring foolproof performance, both for multitasking and for playing video games. The SoC’s CPU has a clock frequency of up to 2.5 GHz for the heaviest tasks. Regarding connectivity, the smartphone is compatible with all the latest standards: 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 and NFC.
This smartphone also shines with its significant autonomy, enabled among other things by the integration of a battery with a capacity of 4800 mAh. You will easily last a day of use, or even more. And the good news doesn’t stop there since the HONOR 70 benefits from the ultra-fast charging technology HONOR SuperCharge 66W. Thanks to this, 20 minutes are enough to recharge the battery of the mobile to 60% and continue to use your smartphone for hours.
