Chinese smartphone manufacturer Honor has announced its latest flagship device, the Honor 90 GT. Boasting impressive memory capacity, internal storage, and powered by Qualcomm’s top-tier SoC, this device is on par with other high-end Android smartphones. The main differences lie in the design and, of course, the price.
Specifications of the Honor 90 GT
The Honor 90 GT features a 6.7-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 2,664 x 1,200 pixels. The screen offers a 120 Hz refresh rate and a maximum brightness of 2,600 nits. Powering this display is Qualcomm’s flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, which consists of 8 cores in the form of 1x Cortex-X3, 2x Cortex-A175, 2x Cortex-A710, and 3x Cortex-A510. In terms of graphics, it is equipped with the powerful Adreno 740 GPU. Cooling is achieved with a vapor chamber measuring 5,268 mm2 and additional graphene sheet of 2,164 mm2.
This SoC supports up to 24 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 1 TB of UFS 4.0 internal storage. The base model comes with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, while an intermediate version features 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. The device is powered by a respectable 5,000 mAh battery that supports 100W fast charging via cable. Honor’s Super Fast Charging technology can charge the device from 0 to 100% in just 32 minutes.
Camera, Other Features, and China Launch Price
In the camera department, the Honor 90 GT diverges from other devices in its range with a dual-camera setup. This includes a 50 MP Sony IMX906 primary sensor and a 12 MP ultra-wide angle lens. The device also features a 16 MP selfie camera housed in a hole-punch display cutout. The display also integrates a fingerprint reader for added security.
On the software side, the device runs MagicOS 7.2, based on Android 13. It supports 5G, 4G+ and 4G connectivity, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, multi-satellite positioning, and a USB-C 2.0 port. The phone is encased in an aluminum chassis with a thickness of 7.9 mm, weighing in at 185 grams.
As for the pricing, the Honor 90 GT has debuted in China at a local equivalent price of €330 (12GB/256GB). The most advanced version is priced at €470 — quite attractive considering its 24 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. These figures are roughly half the cost of flagship devices from other brands with lower memory and storage capacities. The phones will be available for purchase in China starting December 26 and are expected to reach other markets in the coming months with higher, albeit less competitive, prices.
