The superior version obliges, the Honor 80 Pro stands out for its ultra-wide angle of 50 mpx, against only 8 mpx for the Honor 80, and a depth sensor of 2 mpx. The same goes for the front.

The Honor 80 Pro meets power standards
If the Honor 70 already managed to surprise with its thickness of 7.9 mm, the 80 and 80 Pro models do even better, with 7.7 and 7.8 mm respectively. The two smartphones of the Chinese brand also remain very light, about 180 to 188 g. It is clear that the Honor 80 Pro is the best in terms of performance.
