Processor & Battery – a matching combination

With high performance comes high power consumption. However, Honor did a decent balancing on this device. This mobile phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 Accelerated Edition. This chip has a 20% better GPU and 30% better AI performance compared to its predecessor. With this improvement in performance, the company packs a  large 5000mAh battery on this device to support all-day use. On a single charge, the mobile phone can provide up to 19.5 hours of continuous local video streaming. With the Honor 66W SuperCharge, users can get a 45% charge in just 15 minutes. The charging power does not lead to heating, many thanks to its 147% larger vapor chamber. This gives an efficient heat dissipation that allows the HONOR 90 to stay cool.


The triple camera system consists of a 200MP Main Camera with a 1/1.4-inch sensor, a 12 MP ultra-wide and macro camera with a 112° field of view, and a 2MP Depth Camera that helps the camera accurately gauge distance. The 200MP Main Camera produces excellent high dynamic range (HDR) photos and detailed, bright shots in low light situations. It also supports multi-frame fusion, a noise reduction algorithm and pixel binning. This helps it to achieve a light-capturing performance.

The camera of this device also supports the new Portrait Mode. This includes the 2X zoom portraits to deliver imaging results that better highlight the subject in the frame. Honor assures users of exceptional portraits with the new portrait mode upgrade which gives well-defined facial features, accurate skin tones and an authentic bokeh effect.
