The HONOR 70 relies on its design and its photo and video capabilities to appeal to the French public. It is an ideal companion for vlogging thanks to exclusive advanced features.
The HONOR 70 has just launched in France. The mobile enjoys premium services at an attractive price. If it is primarily aimed at budding photographers and videographers, it will also convince users looking for a quality screen, a worked design, good autonomy and high-end performance.
A dual main camera for the camera
One of the particularities of the HONOR 70 is the integration of two main photo sensors: the HONOR 70 is indeed the first smartphone to integrate Sony’s latest IMX800, a wide-angle and high sensitivity sensor (f / 1.9 aperture) of 54 MP normally intended for high-end devices. This sensor is complemented by both ultra-wide-angle and 50 MP macro optics. Finally, a last sensor of 2 MP is in charge of the depth of field for a better bokeh effect of the portrait mode. This diversity makes the HONOR 70 very versatile and allows it to adapt to all situations and needs when capturing a photo. Additionally, the HONOR Image Engine’s algorithms and artificial intelligence provide advanced software processing of shots, improving color and image dynamics while also enabling faster camera aperture and autofocus.
The HONOR 70 also stands out in video. It films in 4K quality (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) and benefits from EIS video stabilization to attenuate, or even eliminate, the effects of shake and jerkiness. The smartphone also has an exclusive feature that makes it the most suitable tool for creating vlogs: Solo Cut mode. Thanks to this, you will be able to film two distinct points of view at the same time: the entire scene and a focus on a particular person, even if several individuals appear in the shot. Enough to meet the needs of a generation adept at social networks!
A 120Hz curved OLED display
For more immersion and a better viewing experience, the HONOR 70 is equipped with a 6.67-inch curved FullView display that slopes down elegantly from the sides. It is based on OLED technology and benefits from an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120 Hz as well as an FHD + 2400 x 1080 pixel definition. The panel adopts an elongated 20:09 format particularly suited to multimedia content and supports 1.07 billion colors for rich and precise colorimetry.
The HONOR 70 has a battery with a capacity of 4,800 mAh, which allows it to offer generous autonomy. It is also compatible with the brand’s 66W SuperCharge technology for ultra-fast charging speeds. In just a few minutes of charging, you can get several hours of mobile use. That’s almost two days of battery life for moderate use, and the possibility of never crashing again for more intensive users.
The smartphone counts on its thin and light design to be transported and handled in a simple and pleasant way, with 178 grams on the scale and dimensions of 161.4 mm x 73.3 mm x 7.91 mm, rather compact compared to screen size. HONOR has worked hard to reduce the size of the borders around the screen to achieve these measurements, for ever greater immersion. For more convenience, the fingerprint reader is integrated directly under the screen.
The HONOR 70 is available in Midnight Black and Emerald Green colors. If you buy your smartphone on the manufacturer’s official website, an exclusive Crystal Silver color is also offered on the 256 GB storage model.
The performance of the HONOR 70 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G Plus chip. Engraved with a thinness of 6nm, it is based on an eight-core CPU architecture, including one at 2.5 GHz clock frequency and three at 2.4 GHz. The other four cores take care of the less resource-intensive processes and consume very little power. The smartphone is compatible with 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 and NFC.
The HONOR 70 comes with the Play Store pre-installed and has all Google services. It offers an in-house Magic UI 6.1 interface based on Android 12, which is as fluid as it is feature-rich.
The HONOR 70 costs 549.90 euros for the version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space, or 599.90 euros for the configuration with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory. Aggressive prices that make the smartphone a product with excellent value for money, since we benefit from high-end services for a contained cost.
Until September 29, a pair of Earbuds 3 Pro wireless headphones are included for free with the HONOR 70 as a gift for the launch of the smartphone. And by going through the HiHonor page to order, you also get a black protective case, as well as an Early Bird promo code worth 50 euros to reduce the price of the smartphone.
By purchasing your HONOR 70 on the brand’s official website, you also have the opportunity to create a bundle including accessories at a reduced price. You can thus acquire an Honor Band 6 connected bracelet for only 9.90 euros, a MagicWatch 2 connected watch of 46mm at 89.90 euros or a Watch GS 3 at 159.90 euros.
