Honor 50 series with GMS support, 108MP camera launched: Check price, specs here
Honor has come along way in the recent past. It has gone through a tough time and is now looking to get back into the market with new launches. Honor had to split from its parent company, Huawei, last year following a dispute with the US government. The move was a strategic one as it enabled Honor to sign deals with a host of companies, including AMD, MediaTek, Micron Technology, Microsoft, Samsung, SK Hynix, and Sony among others. Now, post the split, Honor has launched its first major smartphone series -- the Honor 50 series.
The Honor 50 series consists of the Honor 50, the Honor 50 Pro, and the Honor 50 SE smartphones. One of the USPs of this smartphone series is that it features support for Google’s Google Mobile Services (GSM). Honor has launched the Honor 50 series in China. But it has said that its Honor 50 smartphone will arrive in international markets including France, Malaysia, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the UK later this year.
