Details about Honor's upcoming flagship smartphone, the Honor 50 Pro+, have emerged online. This sits in line with earlier reports, which told us that Honor was planning to launch a high-end smartphone at the end of Q2 2021. It also stated that the putative Honor flagship smartphone would run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset. However, the information acquired by CNMO seems to suggest otherwise.

The Honor 50 Pro+ is expected to pack a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED HDR10+ screen clocked at 120Hz. At the back, we get four camera modules- a 50MP primary sensor, 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens, an 8MP telephoto lens and a ToF sensor. A 32MP sensor coupled with an 8MP (presumably a wide-angle lens) is located at the front for selfies and video calls. 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB UFS 3.1 storage is included, too. Lastly, the Honor 50 Pro+ packs a 4,400mAh battery that supports 67W wired charging, along with 50W wireless charging. The latter will very likely require a proprietary charger, though.

Things begin to get interesting when we look at the chipset. On the one hand, the spec sheet says that the Honor 50 Pro+ is expected to run a Snapdragon 888 chipset. Looking further into the spec sheet, we find mentions of a mysterious Cortex-A78 based CPU with a Mali-G78 GPU. Currently, the only chipset that fits the description is an Exynos 1080. We heard about Samsung's plans to launch an Exynos 1080 successor sometime in Q2 2021, so there is a good chance that we could see it in action alongside the Honor 50 Pro+.

While the prospect of the Honor 50 Pro+ debuting a new chipset is exciting, the chances of it sticking with a top-of-the-line Qualcomm SoC are higher. Then again, Qualcomm is up to its nose in Snapdragon 888 orders, as highlighted by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun some time ago. So it wouldn't be surprising if Honor looked at Samsung for its chipset needs.
