Honor 50 vs Honor 50 SE vs Honor 50 Pro

Honor just recently launched their first phones after separating from Huawei. The Honor 50 series is currently composed of three models: Honor 50Honor 50 Pro, and Honor 50 SE. They are the first after the ban which will come in the global market with Google Mobile Services and Play Store out of the box since Honor is no longer under Huawei. Despite there is a Pro version in the trio, all of these devices are mid-rangers. That is why there is a lot of confusion around their specifications. This comparison between the new devices will hopefully make things clear.

Honor 50 vs Honor 50 SE vs Honor 50 Pro

Design

The Honor 50 Pro (on the left) is the handset with the highest screen-to-body ratio and the most beautiful one. It has an amazing finish for the rear side which you can rarely find on midrange phones. The pill-shaped dual punch hole is not the max in terms of beauty, but for the rest, the Pro variant is definitely more attractive. With the vanilla Honor 50, you can get a more compact design, as well as a thinner and lighter body. That is why it remains very interesting.

Display

The best displays belong to the vanilla Honor 50 and its Pro variant. We are talking about OLED panels which can show up to one billion colors with a 120 Hz refresh rate and a Full HD+ resolution. The only important difference between these two panels is the diagonal: the vanilla version is 6.57 inches, while the Pro version is 6.72 inches. The Honor 50 SE has an even wider 6.78-inch display, but it is an IPS panel that is way inferior compared to its two internal rivals.

Hardware/Software

The Honor 50 and the Honor 50 Pro come with the same hardware department including a Snapdragon 778G mobile platform, up to 256 GB of internal storage, and up to 8 GB of RAM. It is an upper-midrange hardware department which is great for every scenario, but it is still far from flagships. Honor 50 SE is an upper-midrange phone too, but its Dimensity 900 chipset is slightly inferior to the Snapdragon 778G. The memory configurations are the same. The phones run Android 11 customized by Magic UI with Google Mobile Services out of the box for the global market.

Camera

Honor 50, 50 Pro, and 50 SE all come with a 108 MP main camera paired with an 8 MP ultrawide sensor and a 2 MP macro camera. With the Honor 50 and 50 Pro, you also get an additional 2 MP depth sensor which is not present on the SE variant. They are midrange camera phones. The Honor 50 Pro has a better front camera department including a 32 MP main camera and an ultrawide sensor with a 12 MP resolution: the front department is the reason why it wins the camera comparison.

Battery

With the vanilla Honor 50, you can get a bigger battery with a 4300 mAh capacity and a longer battery life, while Honor 50 Pro supports faster charging with a power of 100W.

Honor 50 vs Honor 50 SE vs Honor 50 Pro: Price

For now, the Honor 50 series is only available in Asia. The vanilla version starts at about $555/€470, Honor 50 SE begins at $369/€310, and Honor 50 Pro costs $689/€580 in its base variant. There are only marginal differences between Honor 50 and 50 Pro: despite the latter has faster charging and better front cameras, I would go for the vanilla version due to its bigger battery. Which one would you pick?
