The Honor 70 series of smartphones debuts Sony’s IMX800 image sensor in the devices’ rear camera arrays. In the Honor 70, this rear setup consists of a 54MP Super Sensing main camera equipped with an f/1.9 lens with All Pixel Autofocus. This sits alongside a 50MP Wide-Angle and Macro 2-in-1 122° Ultra Wide camera. There is no telephoto camera on the Honor 70. Instead, the third camera is a 2MP depth sensor.
On the front of the device is a 32MP selfie camera that allows for HDR Selfie Portraits.
The Honor 70 shoots 4K video at 30p and Full HD at up to 60p. There’s also a Slow-Motion video mode and a Multi-Video option for recording split-screen movies. WHat’s more, a new Solo Cut mode allows you to auto-track a person without moving your phone.
As you’d imagine, all the usual shooting modes are there: Aperture, Portrait, Night, Pro. Other interesting options are Time-Lapse, HDR, Super Macro and High-Res
The Honor 70 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G+ chipset, with 8GB of RAM and its GPU Turbo X helps deliver higher frame rates for video and gaming while promising lower power consumption.
The Honor 70 is also the first non-flagship phone to use the company’s Honor Image Engine, which employs computational photography software to sharpen images and give them a lift. It’s this software that drives the new Solo Cut mode, helping to keep your moving subject in focus. Solo Cut will maintain focus even if your subject leaves the frame and comes back. The AI is able to do this by noting identifying characteristics, such as clothes.
Inside the device is a 4800mAh battery that promises long life and charges at up to 66W. Honor says that the phone can charge from nearly empty to 60% in just 20 minutes, making it one of the fastest on the market.
The Honor 70 also runs on Android.
