The emergence of Honor as an independent electronics brand has led to speculation that it will release premium Snapdragon 888-based mobile devices in 2021. The latest leak on this subject asserts that it will become available in June of the same year. Meanwhile, a render of the 50 vanilla model with a new camera hump has emerged.

An earlier leak pointed to a Pro+ variant of the successor to the Honor 30 with a rear panel most reminiscent of the Vivo X60 series. However, the latest render allegedly associated with the upcoming "50" might contradict it somewhat. It shows a phone with a camera hump that is lozenge-shaped rather than square.

Then again, it is still designed so as to devote space to a markedly large main sensor, as with the OnePlus 9s or Meizu 18s of the world. According to (translated comments from) the tipster responsible for this possible new leak, known as PengPengJun on Weibo, Honor has dubbed this the "Cartier Ring" design , probably due to the shiny disc around the dominant lens.

According to the render, the 50 will have 3 rear cameras in all, one of which might be a top-end 50MP sensor. Meanwhile, another eminent Weibo leaker, Digital Chat Station, now claims to have heard the 50 - which might be powered by the Snapdragon 870 with the flagship 888 processor reserved for Pro and/or Pro+ variants - should be on the market by June 2021. Therefore, it is possible the phone might actually launch in late May.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
