Honor Reveals the Honor 100 and 100 Pro in China!

Yet another beautiful pair of phones that’s not arriving in the Philippines.

The Honor 90 sure did sell like hotcakes and Honor is already back on the map starting from its home country, China! We’ve seen how unique the Honor 90 looks, how great its cameras are, and how great it is for vlogging. We couldn’t thank Honor Philippines enough and its respectable community for letting us get a hold of one.

It’s a question we never asked. “How can Honor make their number series more unique?” but we’re glad to get an answer regardless. The camera layout of the Honor 100 and 100 Pro are things we have not seen before.

Sure, you get your Tecnos with their wild geometrical design, or Samsung with their minimalistic layout, and Apple with their well-known “triangular” camera layout, but you haven’t seen one with a semicircle, or something oblate. It’s a weird choice but it does make the phones stand out.


We can’t believe there has been over 100 Honor phones released since its founding! That is a great achievement and it’s worth celebrating! We sound like a broken record but we really like its stand-out design. Its overall form factor is very close to its predecessor, the Honor 90.

Kidding aside, the phone does look nice. The front display uses the same High 3840Hz PWM Dimming as with the Honor 90. It also features a curved OLED screen measuring 6.7″ and with a 2664x1200px resolution. Although higher than FullHD+, that’s the resolution listed on HiHonor’s website.

It uses the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chipset which is slightly weaker than the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 but also more efficient. This is the first phone to feature this chipset. It comes with 12GB or 16GB RAM and either 256 or 512GB ROM.

There are two cameras at the back and a single 50MP camera at the front. The same type as the Honor 90. Though only two cameras, the main sensor is much more powerful, despite having a quarter of the resolution. It is the Sony IMX906 with f/1.9 aperture and OIS. It is complemented with a 12MP ultrawide camera.

It uses a typically-sized 5000mAh battery with 100W fast charging, the fullest potential the series can ever hold. Sadly no, it still does not support wireless charging but that’s kind of expected at this price range.

Phone calls can be quite a challenge. It’s nearly 2024 and we still haven’t found a way to make our receivers audible. There are some developments like Voice-over LTE (VoLTE) which improves audio quality when using a 4G or 5G network, and there are also proprietary chipsets created by independent brands to make call quality high. Honor has a self-developed C1 Radio Frequency (RF) chip so that your calls will be clear, even in the most obscure locations.

Of course, it has your usual feats, including MagicOS 7.2 running Android 13, an in-display fingeprint scanner, 5G, NFC, and dual-band Wi-Fi. It also comes with four pastel-like colours to suit your style. These are White, Blue, Black, and Lavender.

It starts at CNY 2,499 (~PHP 19.6K) for the 12/256 trim and the 16/512 is priced at CNY 2,999 (~PHP 23.5K). It is currently only available in China.

The Honor 100 Pro has an oblate camera island. Asymmetrical but unique. Not only that, it comes with two selfie cameras, located conveniently at the middle. It mimics that of the Xiaomi CIVI 3, or we dare say, the iPhone 15 series. And yes, the silver variant does have a ceramic feel. Good eyes!

Like the Honor 100, the 100 Pro’s OLED display has a 3840Hz anti-flicker and 120Hz refresh rate. The screen is bigger, measuring 6.78-inches.

The same two cameras are kept from the Honor 100 but it also has a new neighbor, a 32MP telephoto camera with 50x zoom. Optical zoom isn’t mentioned because this most likely is not a periscope lens. It does have OIS though.

Like the Honor 90 Pro, the Honor 100 Pro is situated similar to a flagship thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset inside. It also has a vapour cooling chamber so that you can’t cook your favourite breakfast on it. Though. the chip performance and throttling can be tested.

As we mentioned, there are two selfie cameras. Though the other must be either a depth helper or a 3D TOF sensor because Honor’s website does not seem to mention it. The 50MP camera is specified, it is a Sony IMX816 which, just like the Honor 100, can capture 4K@60fps video. Though we’re wishing it’s not limited to 15 minutes this time.

It uses the same 5000mAh battery and 100W charging speed. It also has that C1 chip we mentioned earlier for better calls. In this section, you’ll find the usual specs including Bluetooth 5.3, In-display fingerprint scanner, NFC, and 5G services.

It starts at CNY 3,399 (~PHP 26.6K), a huge jump from the Honor 100’s base price. There is also the highest-tier, 16/1TB priced at CNY 4,399 (~PHP 34.4K). Like the Honor 100, this phone is currently only available in China.
