The Honor 50 is a Snapdragon 778G-powered Android smartphone with a 120Hz AMOLED screen and a 108MP main camera. It is mainly only available in China to date; however, a prolific leaker now asserts that it will launch in Europe by the end of October 2021. Then again, it may do so at a higher price than many of its potential competitors.

The Honor 50 may have helped its brand  to the top of the smartphone market in its native China, with its compelling, large 120Hz FHD AMOLED display. Furthermore, it offers a triple-digit main image sensor on its reverse side, found in one of 2021's most distinctive camera humps. Now, should a new tip pan out, it might be on its way to a new market.

Roland Quandt of WinFuture now asserts that Honor will debut its premium mid-ranger in Europe fairly soon - in an event ostensibly exclusively reserved for the 50, with no mention of its SE or Pro variants. The phone is apparently slated to appear a 6GB RAM base model (even though this was not announced during its original launch), with 128GB of internal storage, or an 8GB higher-end SKU with 256GB of internal storage. Either putative European-market unit is slated to support Google Mobile Services.

They are slated to start at €499 (~US$577) and €599 (~$692) respectively, which would make the Honor 50 expensive for a Snapdragon 778G-powered device in Europe. Then again, the OEM is projected to highlight its most premium aspects (namely, its looks, screen and cameras) in selling the phone at these prices in its new region. It is said to start doing so as of October 26, 2021.
