Honor 70: Launch, Price, and Specifications

Honor as a phone manufacturer has faced a lot of ups and downs since its inception. The company parted ways with Huawei when the telecommunication giant was hit by multiple scandals and was sanctioned by US markets. Honor also suffered the consequences and the state of the company was in shambles.

But the company also regained its focus and tried to keep its footing strong. Honor, as a mobile phone manufacturer, is known to provide the best quality and features to its consumers for a lot less price when compared to other players in the market. Although the company lost the huge US market, it focused on the results of the world. Thus, the company held strong to its roots and kept innovating its smartphones. Honor 70 is the result of one of those innovations and is a sight for sore eyes.

Honor 70 Price in Malaysia and What It Offeres:

Honor 70 price in Malaysia is just right where it hits the sweet spot of its consumers, placing it at not too cheap or very expensive. The features of the phone are listed below for you to decide whether the phone is worth the buy or not (it is!).

The Sleak Design:

Honor 70 is a glass sandwich with a plastic chassis holding them together. The front and back of the phone have beautiful 2.5D curved glass which is also durable. The back has frosted glass and the curved edges make it pleasant to hold and feel. The back also houses two huge camera sensors on the top left and the company name “HONOR” on the bottom left.

The 2.5D curved glass is also very light in weight and with a decent size of 4800 mAh battery size, the phone still weighs just 179 grams which is as light as a feather now, in the smartphone world. 

The front of the phone has a massive 6.7-inch Full HD display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. While other phones in the category do offer 2K resolutions, their quality and output are, more often than not, mediocre. Under our testing, the Full HD display performed quite well, the quality is superb, the colors are accurate, playing games is smooth and animations are as smooth as butter. A fingerprint reader under the display responds quickly when used making the phone lightning fast to unlock. It has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels resulting in 395 pixels per inch density.

The Absolutely On-Point Camera:

The cameras are what consumers seek these days and are one of the biggest factors a consumer evaluates while making a smartphone purchase and luckily, Honor 70 does not disappoint. Honor 70 price in Malaysia may lead you to think that it may not house a good camera but the reality is different. 

The phone has a main camera with a resolution of 54 megapixels by Sony IMX800 sensors with a size of 1/1.49 inches which takes crisp photos and is good for videos as well. The triple camera set-up of the phone is well thought of, the main camera of 54 megapixels, and a wide-angle camera which also doubles as a macro lens is backed by a 2 megapixels camera for sensing depths in the view. This provides a nice bokeh effect in pictures and videos and makes up for the lacking of other sensors in low-light photography.

To put the cherry on top, the Honor 70 is the first mid-range smartphone to have the Honor Image Engine as the background software for computational photography. This works as an ace up the sleeve for Honor as the engine goes well with the sensors and the resulting shots are no less than amazing.

The 5G Technology:

Honor 70 has Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G plus chipset which is fast and supports 5G technology along with other typical connectivity options like 4G LTE, dual-band wifi, Bluetooth, etc. The base model of the phone comes with 8 gigs of ram and 128 gigs of storage which is plenty for an everyday person for hassle-free task handling.

Finally, the battery of a phone matters a lot as the features and the functionalities are all dependent upon it. Honor 70 has a decent size 4800 mAh battery which easily carries the phone till the end of the day under moderate to heavy use. The device also supports Honor’s Super Charge technology of 66W which charges the phone up to 60% in just over 20 minutes.

Honor 70 price in Malaysia is quite reasonable and the truckload of features that it comes with makes it an ultimate value-for-money smartphone.
