Honor just launched its latest smartphone in Malaysia, the Honor 50; this marks the Chinese company’s return to the local smartphone market. Not only does it come with Google’s apps and services, the Honor 50 is also a relatively affordable phone with a premium-looking design.
Two variants of the Honor 50 are available in Malaysia. The base model with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM retails at RM1,699, while the 256GB configuration with 8GB of RAM costs RM1,999. Every pre-order of the 128GB variant will get a complimentary case and an extended warranty, while the 256GB model adds on an Honor Earbuds 2 Lite.
What’s particularly interesting about the Honor 50 – in comparison to previous smartphones from the Chinese company – is the fact that it comes with Google Mobile Services. This gives the device access to Google’s range of apps and services, which is really the defining trait of an Android smartphone.
Aside from that, Honor 50 is a reasonably well-equipped mid-range smartphone too. For one, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset, which should be able to offer a good level of performance. It also comes with a 120Hz 6.57-inch 1080p OLED display.
Other specifications of the Honor 50 include a quad camera system (108MP primary + 8MP ultra-wide angle + 2MP macro + 2MP depth), a 32MP selfie camera, and a 4,300mAh battery with support for 66W fast charging.
The Honor 50 is now available for pre-order in Malaysia until 24 October 2021. To recap, the base 128GB model retails at RM1,699, while the 256GB configuration costs RM1,999.
