If you want to really make your socials sizzle, you need the HONOR 90. It’s packed with cutting-edge tech to capture, create and share your vibe, and with 4K video and clever AI it’s also a brilliant phone for creating videos and memes to make your friends and followers laugh. It’s the ultimate creative tool and the perfect phone for big nights, big laughs and big adventures too.
More megapixels means more amazing
If you’ve ever struggled to get great group selfies during big nights out you’ll love the HONOR 90’s 200-megapixel camera and new 1/1.4-inch sensor. Together they bring in much more light, ensuring that your group shots look great and portraits really pop even when the lights are low. And because the HONOR 90’s main camera and selfie shooter have very wide fields of view you can get more people into your group selfies or just include more of the scenery when you’re the star of the shot.
The HONOR 90 has another trick up its sleeve. It’s called pixel binning, and what it does is very clever. In really low light situations, it combines sixteen pixels together to make one super-pixel, and each super-pixel brings in much more light — so the result is crisper, clearer night-time photos without any of the noise or jaggies you’ll get from less capable cameras.
Make your portraits pop
We love portrait mode, which makes every day a looking-good day. And it’s even better in the new HONOR 90 thanks to that new sensor. The HONOR 90 is even better at delivering bokeh, the effect that makes the background soften so the focus is on you or the person you’re photographing, and if you’ve ever laughed at the over-processed, plastic-looking skin some rival phone cameras deliver you’ll love how accurately the HONOR 90 handles skin tones.
These cameras can do everything
The HONOR 90 also has a 2MP depth camera for brilliantly blurred backgrounds and a 12MP Ultra-Wide and Macro camera. That means you can take breathtaking shots of landscapes, buildings and other big things, and thanks to its incredibly short 2.5cm minimum distance you can also get up close to shoot the tiniest details. That’s handy for all kinds of photography, and it’s pretty cool for creators and crafters to take pictures of their work to sell on places such as eBay and Etsy too.
4K video and instant memes too
You’ll love how the HONOR 90 handles video. With 4K resolution, HDR and dual microphones with AI noise reduction you’ll be shooting incredibly crisp video with beautifully clear audio, and if you use the AI Vlog Assistant you can get your HONOR to create TikTok- and Instagram-ready clips in just one second. Not only that but there’s a built-in GIF creator that can take your funniest photo and instantly turn it into a meme.
The HONOR 90’s video quality is really impressive, and once again there’s a lot of cutting-edge AI tech helping you with every single frame. AI Super Resolution and AI Sharpening Technology analyze every frame of your video, optimizing it for the best possible quality and clarity. It can also upsample your videos, for example by taking SDR and making it HDR or by taking HDR and making it even more dynamic by upsampling it to HDR10+.
One of our favorite features here is the choice of video modes, which makes it easy to get the right settings for any kind of socials: all you need to do is choose Portrait Video, HDR Video, Close-up, Multi-video or Solo Cut to get pro-level video at the touch of the screen.
Power that won’t run out of puff
There’s nothing worse than shooting something spectacular only for the battery to run out mid-record. That’s why the HONOR 90 has serious stamina: its 5,000 mAh battery delivers around 20 hours of video. And if you forget to charge it, you’ll love the 66W HONOR SuperCharge tech that’s built into your phone. It gets you from flat to 45% battery in just 15 minutes.
The rest of the phone’s pretty spectacular too. It’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 Accelerated Edition processor, which delivers 20% faster GPU performance and 30% better AI performance than its predecessor. And it runs an optimized version of Android, HONOR MagicOS 7.1. That has all the Android features you know and love, but it adds some really useful features such as Magic Text, which can automatically recognize and act on text when you point your camera at it – so you can automatically call numbers, save contacts, open websites and store email addresses.
