The Honor 80 comes with a rear camera module that looks like a striking number 8. The phone is available in four colorways: black, green, blue, and pink. Among them, the blue variant adopts a new “3D composite precision engraving process”. In effect, the phone’s rear panel has more than 80 textures precisely engraved on the glass surface with a thickness of only 0.55mm.
On the opposite side, we have a 6.67-inch OLED flexible hyperbolic screen with a resolution of 2400*1080. The display supports a 120Hz refresh rate, 1920Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, a 1.07 billion color display, and DCI-P3 wide color gamut.
Under the hood, this model hosts the world’s first Snapdragon 782G processor. It is the successor of the Snapdragon 778G/+. Thus, the performance should be smooth. By the way, this chip also uses 6nm technology, an octa-core CPU design (1*2.7GHz Cortex-A78 + 3*2.2GHz Cortex-A78 + 4*1.9GHz Cortex A55), and an Adreno 642L GPU.
It is worth mentioning that the Honor 80 is currently the first smartphone coming with a 160-megapixel main camera. However, there are also 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and 2-megapixel macro lenses.
The built-in 4800mAh battery supports 66W super-fast charging. According to Honor, after turning on the ultra-fast charging mode and charging with the screen off in standby mode, the battery can be charged from 3% to 50% in 15 minutes.
The entire series comes with the MagicOS 7.0 operating system out of the box.

Honor 80 Pro
The front hole of the Honor 80 Pro is 60% smaller than the iPhone 14 Pro in terms of area. Thus, it wouldn’t block too much content or attract users’ attention too much. While shrinking in size, two cameras on the front also have excellent hardware performance.
The Honor 80 Pro adopts a 50-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel depth-of-field lens. It can record 4K@30fps high-definition portrait videos and has a maximum 100° ultra-wide-angle field of view. The front-facing camera of the phone also supports AI optimization.
The machine debuts Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 low-frequency version. The CPU consists of a super-large core of Cortex-X2 at 3.0GHz, 3 large cores of Cortex-A710 2.5GHz, and 4 small cores of Cortex-A510 at 1.8GHz. The hyperbolic screen is 6.78 inches, has a 2700×1224 resolution, and has an OLED material. It has a 4800mAh battery, which supports 66W fast charging.
