The Honor 70-series of smartphones is now slated to launch with potentially significant performance gains over its 60-series predecessors. This is because it is now rumored to offer a range of new processors, which may even top out at MediaTek's compelling new flagship the Dimensity 9000. These SoCs might drive 120Hz displays and large-ish batteries with fast charging in the upcoming Honor mid-rangers.

The best the Honor 60 series could do in terms of CPU was the Snapdragon 778G. Now, however, the line's next generation might exhibit considerable upgrades, as it is now projected to have a new Pro+ variant with nothing less than the Dimensity 9000 platform.

According to the leaker Yash Raj Chaudhary, it will be joined by a vanilla 70 and a 70 Pro variant at launch. The former is now said to switch to Qualcomm for its own SoC, being the first Honor phone to feature the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. The 70 Pro is apparently in line for the Dimensity 8100 instead.

All 3 putative Honor mid-rangers may have 10-bit displays, although the 70 might be stuck with an FHD+ panel while the Pro and Pro+ move on to 2.8K and 2.5K+ resolutions instead. The 2 higher-end variants are also now linked to OLED LTPO tech that might confer the coveted 1-120Hz variable refresh rate spec, even though their screens may have been sourced from BOE rather than Samsung.

All 3 Honor 70 siblings might have triple rear cameras, with a primary+ultrawide-angle+telephoto set-ups of 50+50+8MP  and 50+50+12MP going to the Pro and Pro+ respectively, with OIS only mentioned in the Pro's allegedly leaked specs sheet. Meanwhile, an older 108+8+2MP configuration may be headed for the vanilla model.

Finally, the Honor 70 and 70 Pro might rock 4,800mAh batteries with 66W charging, whereas the Pro+ upgrades to 100W and downgrades to 4,600mAh simultaneously. There is no word as to whether any of them might see a design update in 2022, however.
