Honor is readying its Honor 70 series of smartphones for its home country, China. The company has confirmed that it will take the wraps off its new devices on May 30, 2022. The Honor 70 series will succeed the Honor 60 series of smartphones, which were launched back in December 2021. Rumours suggest there will be at least three models—the Honor 70, Honor 70 Pro, and Honor 70 Pro+. The Honor 70 devices will be powered by much more powerful chipsets compared to the outgoing models.
Honor 70 Series: Features (Rumoured)
The Honor 60 series of smartphones were one of the most popular choices for folk in China owing to their premium build quality, quad-curve display, camera performance, superb battery life, and affordability. Going by the video, the Honor 70 series will come with an evolved design and a sleeker profile.
The rear cameras are now a bit hexagonal in shape as opposed to the circular camera lenses of the Honor 60 series. It comes with a diamond pattern rear panel, which appears to be reflective. The frame will be built of metal and persists with a rounded design instead of the flat ones, which are currently trending.
