Honor discreetly introduced the X50 Pro smartphone in China today as part of preparations for the Magic 6 series launch. This low-profile launch suggests that Honor aims to position the X50 Pro as a device targeted for offline sales, mainly available in physical stores.
Rumors suggest that the X50 Pro might debut as the Honor X50 GT, possibly for online sales. Honor officially announced the X50 GT’s launch in China on January 6th, featuring the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, the same as the X50 Pro. This hints at a potential rebranding.
The Honor X50 Pro features a 6.78-inch curved OLED display with 1.5K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate with a 10-bit screen and supports 1920Hz PWM dimming. It is 8.45mm thick and weighs 192g. There’s also a 5100 mm2 vapor cooling system to keep the phone’s thermals under control. The Honor X50 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 SoC and paired up with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. It runs Magic OS 7.2 based on Android 13 out of the box. On the back, it features dual cameras – a 108MP main sensor and a 2MP macro lens. On the front, there is an 8MP selfie camera. A 5800mAh battery with support for 35W charging boasts it.
The other features are NFC, Bluetooth 5.2, and a USB Type-C port. This device will come in two colors- Green and Black. This device will cost 2,799 Yuan (approximately $425).
