Honor unveils the Dimensity 9000 powered 70 Pro+; phone will ship on June 16

Written by admin

Honor today announced three new handsets, the 70, 70 Pro and the 70 Pro+. Let’s start with the last model, the most premium of the three. The Honor 70 Pro+ is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 built by TSMC using its 4nm process node. Both the 70 Pro+ and 70 Pro are equipped with a 6.78-inch OLED display with a “symmetrical quad curved design”. The Honor 70 Pro has the 5nm MediaTek Dimensity 8000 under the hood, a very capable chip but still a sport under the Dimensity 9000.

The 70 Pro+ is equipped with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The Honor 70, the low phone on the totem pole, is powered by the Snapdragon 778G Plus 5G mobile platform. The screen size of the device weighs 6.67 inches. Interestingly, all three models use the Sony IMX800 54MP sensor and a 50MP ultra-wide/macro sensor. The Pro and Pro+ models have an 8MP telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom (up to 30x digital zoom) and OIS. The front-facing punch camera on the Pro units has a 50MP sensor with a 100° wide field of view.
The Honor 70 series (which means all three models) can record front and back video simultaneously. And both Pro models charge their batteries at 100W. So in just 15 minutes, the 4500mAh battery used on the 70 Pro and 70 Pro+ charges to 60% of its capacity. Another 15 minutes (for a total of 30 minutes) will completely refresh the battery to 100%.

Even if it’s not Thanksgiving, let’s talk turkey. The Honor 70 Pro+ with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage will cost you 4,299 yuan (equivalent to $645, €600 and ₹50,000). With 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, the price is 4,599 yuan (equivalent to $690, €640 and ₹53,500). The device is available for pre-order today with delivery starting June 16.

The 70 Pro will be available in models with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage for 3,699 Yuan, with 12 GB RAM and 256 GB storage for 3,999 Yuan, and with 12 GB RAM with 512 GB storage with a price tag of 4,399 Yuan. The Honor 70 is also available for pre-order today and will be released from June 7.

The Honor 70 series is available in the following colors: Midnight Black, Crystal Silver, Emerald Green, Frosted Gold and Icelandic Frost. Keep in mind that the only difference between the Honor 70 Pro and 70 Pro+ is the chipset with the 5nm Dimensity 8000 on the former and the 4nm Dimensity 9000 powering the latter. Remember that the lower the process node, the higher the number of transistors in a chip. That is why the Dimensity 9000 is more powerful and energy efficient than the Dimensity 8000.

George Zhao, CEO of HONOR Device Co., Ltd. said, “…the HONOR 70 Series delivers a significant leap forward in image and video performance, perfect for the younger generation who desire innovative technology and creative solutions when it comes to content creation.”
