Honor has officially confirmed that its 50-series of smartphones will launch in mid-June 2021. The OEM is now hyping them as capable of "beautiful" images and videography, although it has yet to hint at the devices' looks. Then again, it is also known that they will launch with the new Snapdragon 778G processor.

The mobile device and PC brand Honor has just set a date for the launch of its long-hyped 50 series of smartphones. It has been presumed that they, as with most of their predecessors, would have flagship-grade SoCs; however, it now seems they are more like their maker's answer to Google's Pixel 5 instead, slated to rock the freshly-debuted Snapdragon 778G 5G in place of the top-end 888.

Honor's initial 50-themed teaser offers very few hints as to the rest of the line's specs, however, not to speak of any new support for leaks hinting as to its looks and potential camera prowess. Despite this, the brand has published some hype-laden text that, when translated, hints at the potential for "most beautiful" vlog output.

It might also hint that the Honor 50 (and possibly 50 Pro) will "live up to expectations" (a swipe at the OnePlus 9 series?...surely not...) on their June 16, 2021 debut. This event will also presumably go through their pricing, additional features and software (anticipated to involve Android with full Google Mobile Services support at present).
