Honor 100 Series Debuts with SLR-Level Camera, Starts at 2,499 Yuan

November 24, 2023

The Honor 100 series of mobile phones entered the market with a focus on SLR-level portraits as its main selling point. Simultaneously, it achieves a breakthrough in appearance, utilizing an irregular rear camera module and a glass and leather back cover for a distinctive look and feel.

Shifting the spotlight to imaging, the Honor digital series emphasizes portraits in its latest release, the Honor 100 Pro. Featuring the industry’s first Sony IMX906 sensor SLR-level photo camera, a 32-megapixel telephoto portrait lens, and a 112° ultra-wide-angle macro lens, the phone supports 2.5cm Macro shooting. The front camera boasts the industry’s first 50-megapixel Sony IMX816 SLR-level photo lens with a large f/2.0 aperture.

Furthermore, the Honor 100 series enhances the portrait shooting effect with an upgraded Honor Image Engine, leveraging both software and hardware improvements. During the press conference, I directly compared portrait shooting samples of the Honor 100 Pro with those of a Canon EOS SLR camera, revealing similarities in light and shadow processing, facial details, and portrait blur.

Front-facing portraits on the Honor 100 Pro showcase beauty effects, along with automatic capture functions, addressing the issue of previous captures resulting in blurred photos. The phone’s appearance design draws inspiration from Gaudí’s La Pedrera building’s patio, featuring an irregular rear camera module, glass, and leather back in four colors: Monet Purple, Butterfly Blue, Moon Shadow White, and Bright Black.

The Honor 100 Pro excels in providing an eye-friendly screen, simulating natural light, and adjusting color temperature according to ambient light changes. It supports 3840Hz PWM high-frequency dimming and has received the German TUV Rheinland Global Eye Protection 3.0 certification.


Performance-wise, the Honor 100 Pro employs the second-generation Snapdragon 8 chip and Honor’s self-developed radio frequency enhancement chip C1 for improved communication stability. The phone’s gaming experience is enhanced with adjustments to ray tracing technology, split-screen capabilities, and MagicOS’s virtual independent display technology, supporting 120-frame displays for certain games.

On the battery front, the Honor 100 Pro boasts a large 5000mAh battery, supporting 100W wired fast charging and breaking the previous 50W wireless charging power limit with 66W wireless flash charging.

The AI experience on the Honor 100 Pro includes added functions like AI content creation, semantic image search, smart text matching, and hints at future integration of large AI models.

In contrast to the Honor 100 Pro, the Honor 100 boasts a distinct design highlighted by a rear camera module inspired by a half-full moon. The device comes in a variety of elegant colors, such as Moon Shadow White, Butterfly Blue, Monet Purple, and Bright Black. Despite these differences, both models feature a slightly curved screen equipped with oasis eye protection.

While the rear main camera of the Honor 100 mirrors that of the Honor 100 Pro, the front camera, though also 50 megapixels, employs a different sensor. Performance-wise, the Honor 100 boasts the industry’s first third-generation Snapdragon 7 chip, a self-developed radio frequency enhancement chip C1, a 5000mAh battery, and 100W wired fast charging.


The pricing details for the Honor 100 are as follows: 2,499 yuan (about $349) for the 12GB+256GB version, 2,799 yuan (about $389) for the 16GB+256GB version, and 2,999 yuan (about $419) for the 16GB+512GB version.

On the other hand, the Honor 100 Pro is priced at 3,399 yuan (about $475) for the 12GB+256GB version and 4,399 yuan (about $615) for the highest 16GB+1TB version.
