It’s about the Honor 100 family that has just been presented in China and of which we are going to tell you all the details. Of course, we already anticipated that the design of the rear will not leave anyone indifferent.

A design that will attract attention

If you want to know how to differentiate the two models, it is simple: The Honor 100 has a kind of circular detail within a rectangular module for the cameras; The Honor 100 Pro has an oval module with silver details on the perimeter that give the impression that the module itself has curves. In fact, it changes radically with respect to the design of the Honor 90.

There are other details, such as a back with a richer color palette and a dividing motif in the case of the Pro, as well as the dual front camera, also in the Pro model. Since we are on the screen, both have curved sides and is OLED with a resolution of 1.5K+ and 120 Hz refresh rate.

Two sections in which they will stand out is the brightness. -with a peak of 2,600 nits- and in the PWM -3,840 Hz-. We will have to see the tests in real situations, but the brightness, above all, is one of the highest on a mobile phone.

And inside they don’t fall short either.. The Honor 100 mounts the recently presented Snapdragon 7 Gen 3, a Qualcomm SoC that this model will debut and that, at least on paper, has plenty of power in both CPU and GPU for all types of tasks. The Honor 100 Pro has the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2Qualcomm’s most premium SoC of 2022 and which is the one mounted by the highest-end this year.

The battery is LPDDR5X and the storage is UFS 3.1, but something also interesting is the battery. On the one hand, the Honor 100 has 5,450 mAh with 100 W charging, but the Honor 100 Pro has 5,000 mAh with those same 100 W, in addition to 66W wireless charging.

If we move on to the cameras, we already find more notable differences due to the versatility of both.. The main sensor and the wide angle are the same for both, the main one being the 50 megapixel Sony IMX906 with optical stabilization and the 12 megapixel wide angle. However, the Honor 100 Pro has a 32-megapixel telephoto lens that allows for 2.5x optical zoom.

On the front, the standard model has a 50-megapixel sensor while the Pro model has the same sensor plus an additional 32-megapixel wide-angle sensor.
