In this article, we will be talking about the Honor 80 and 80 Pro only. Honor 80 SE and a new pair of Honor earbuds will be covered in a separate story.
Design and Display
Honor 80 Pro is the star of the show, featuring a 6.78-inch curved OLED display with 1080p resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. It is the only phone in the series with a dual selfie camera that resembles Dynamic Island on the new iPhones.
The standard Honor 80 has almost the same display specs, but on a slightly smaller 6.67-inch screen with only a single punch-hole selfie camera. Both phones can hit 1000 nits peak brightness and have support for 1 billion colors as well as HDR10+.

The just-announced Snapdragon 782G chipset replaces Snapdragon 778G+ SoC on the Honor 80. The Honor 80 Pro, on the other hand, is a flagship-grade phone thanks to its Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, but it’s a slightly underclocked version.
