Honor 70 available in Italy: specifications, price and preview

by Andrew

On the occasion of IFA 2022 Honor has officially launched on the European market, including Italy of course, its new Honor 70, a medium-high range solution. It is a product that fits into an extremely crowded segment of the market, within which being able to emerge is a significant challenge. To succeed in this endeavor, the Chinese company focuses first of all on two elements: design and cameras. After trying it for a few hours we tell you what our first impressions are.

From the moment you remove it for the first time from the Honor 70 box, it proves to be a really well-built smartphone with an absolutely accurate and sober design, at least in the version at our disposal (Emerald Green). The matte finish of the glass that covers the back of the smartphone makes it practically impossible to leave imprints on the body, a symptom of an oleophobic treatment that is certainly effective.

The dimensions are certainly not contained, on the other hand the display is very large and it was therefore impossible to further reduce the footprint. However, it remains a fairly thin smartphone (7.9 mm) and, considering the generous size, not too heavy; we are talking about less than 180 grams. There is no IP certification attesting to its resistance to water or dust infiltration.

In the front we find a 6.67-inch display with slightly curved long sides, it may or may not like it but it is an undoubtedly effective expedient in making the frames appear even thinner than they really are. An excellent panel also for what concerns the rendering of the images, equipped with a maximum brightness of about 1000 nits and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. We are talking about an OLED panel but not being an LTPO the refresh rate can only be adjusted to 60 or 120 Hz, with the appropriate item in the settings that allows you to adjust the parameter on three different levels: 60Hz, 120Hz or dynamic. At first glance it would seem a good quality display but we obviously reserve the right to give you a more complete judgment during the review phase.

The frame of the product is made entirely of metal material and along it we find distributed the power button, the volume rocker, the USB-C, the speaker slit and the trolley for the double nano-SIM. There is obviously no audio jack while the audio is mono but as a second speaker the speaker of the ear capsule is used.

Speaking of ergonomics I can tell you that despite the size and the satin finish it is not an excessively slippery smartphone, perhaps also thanks to the thin side frames that offer greater grip. In the package, however, we find a classic transparent silicone cover that does not ruin the design but guarantees a discreet protection.

But let’s get to the point, under the body of this Honor 70 we find a Qualcomm processor, to be precise a Snapdragon 778G +, a slightly revised and optimized version of the “standard” 778G, as well as, in my opinion, an SoC that offers the right combination of performance and consumption. From the first moments of use we are faced with a responsive smartphone and able to manage without any problem the interface, the opening of applications and their use.
