The Honor 90 is a sleek and stylish phone, following last year’s Honor 70. It features a 200-megapixel main camera, an upgraded selfie camera, a Snapdragon 7 gen 1 accelerated 5G chip, a slightly overclocked version of the processor, a bigger battery, and a curved display. The Honor 90 starts at just 449 pounds in the UK, making it an interesting choice for those who appreciate curved screens. The phone is accompanied by a dual-ring camera system featuring three sensors.
The Honor 90’s screen is 6.7 inches of 120Hz full HD Plus AMOLED, with a higher peak brightness of up to 1600 nits. This makes it easy to use outdoors in the sunshine and makes HDR videos and movies more vibrant. It is also Netflix HDR certified, although there is no Dolby Vision support. The Honor 90 also has a pulse width modulation of 3840 Hz, which can reduce eye strain at lower brightness levels.
The most notable step up from last year’s Honor 70 is the Snapdragon 7 gen 1 accelerated Edition, an overclocked version of the regular processor. The screen also helps reduce eye strain, making it a great choice for those who prefer a more compact phone. The Honor 90 is a solid upgrade from last year’s 778 G, offering a 20% improvement in graphics performance and 300% faster AI. The chip is more efficient, and the battery is larger, with 5,000 million power cells, up from 4800 last year. The battery life is longer, and streaming local video should take under 20 hours.
The Honor 90 also has a 66-watt supercharger, which can top up to 45 minutes in 15 minutes. The camera department features a 200-megapixel main camera with 16-in-1 pixel binning, improved detail, noise reduction, and enhanced portrait mode. The front camera has an upgraded 50-megapixel selfie camera, up from 32 last year. The Honor 90 ships with Android 13 and Honor’s Magic OS skin on top, running on 7.1 Nougat. The camera has a 4K resolution, but the front Savvy camera is limited to capturing TPS.
The Honor 90 also has a noise reduction toggle, which can be turned on and off while recording. The Honor 90 supports multi-video recording, allowing users to record multiple cameras simultaneously. The Honor 90 is priced at 449 pounds, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, or 12GB and 512GB for an additional £50.
