Rumor | The Honor 50 Pro will launch with a 100W power brick

Honor has reportedly certified 2 new phones with the Chinese 3C authority. One has been approved in conjunction with a power adapter that can charge the device at up to 66W, whereas the other apparently has a brick that can do so at up to 100W. These high-end specs have led to talk that the devices are none other than the upcoming Honor 50 flagship series.

The brand Honor is back following its split from Huawei, and is currently rumored to launch new Snapdragon 888-based flagship smartphones soon. They are thought to be called the 50 series, and might have a rear camera design that, despite being somewhat of an after-effect of its former owner's influence, could also have a spin of its own with shiny round accents.

The Honor 50 line is also now thought to come with fast-charging support, potentially also shipping with the necessary power accessories. This is due to a new 3C certification dug up by the eminent leaker Digital Chat Station. It has ostensibly been filed by the brand in question, and concerns 2 new 5G phones at once.

Their model numbers - NTH-AN00 and RNA-AN00 - do look (again) strongly like hold-overs from Huawei. They also seem to have been assigned a power brick each: the HW-110600C00 and HN-200500C00 respectively. The former has a 66W rate - whereas the latter goes all the way up to 100W.

This, then, has led to speculation that Honor has a 50 and a 50 Pro in the works, the most powerful of which approaches the upper limit of mobile charging technology in 2021. Another leaker ("Bald Panda" (translated) on Weibo) vaguely hints that it is enabled through the upcoming Qualcomm Quick Charge 5.0 (QC 5.0) standard. 

Therefore, the putative 50 Pro's brick might also be backwards-compatible with other, older devices around a user's home, perhaps even those that can only charge at 18W - not to mention any USB type C laptops that might be around the place. Therefore, Honor might be able to call the alleged new phone eco-friendly in that way at its launch.
