Honor is now said to have three new Android smartphones on the way with a different processor and main rear camera apiece. The base model of the bunch might get a new MediaTek SoC; however, the flagship might outshine it considerably with a top-end Snapdragon 8-series chipset and 200MP main shooter. Then again, all three are tipped to finally dispense with the design choices that have plagued their series for years now.

Honor has been said to put the potentially killer combination of a top-end 200MP camera sensor and a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset into an upcoming Android smartphone before. However, as a device of this spec is now rumored to arrive alongside 2 smaller siblings, it is possible that it might belong to the x0 series rather than the Magic flagship line.

The eminent leaker Digital Chat Station now hints that a device with features along those lines could be the flagship among a group of 3 new smartphones. The other 2 could be powered by the Dimensity 1080 and Snapdragon 778G, and have rear cameras of either 64MP or 108MP in resolution.

Therefore, the former could be a successor to the Honor 70, with the latter a replacement for the 70 Pro and their putative top-end counterpart as a 70 Pro+ replacement. One or more of them might charge at up to 66W, with a possible option on 100W at the higher end.

The last few specs would not be special in the context of premium mid-range Honor smartphones. Then again, this potential "80 series" is now believed to make up for that by finally dropping the double-barrel camera look (a patently Huawei-influenced design that the OEM has failed to shed for multiple generations now) in 2023.
