Exactly three weeks after HONOR Philippines made its official comeback with the launch of the Magic4 Pro, X7, X8, X9, Band 6, and Watch GS 3, the company is getting ready to launch another set of products on October 18.

(Update, October 19: The HONOR X6 has been launched as the cheapest HONOR phone in the Philippines thus far!)

(Update, October 18: The HONOR 70 is official in the Philippines. Here’s a sample of its most interesting vlogging feature, plus its price and preorder freebie!)

You’ll see three more — two of them just debuted globally at the IFA 2022 technology show, the HONOR 70 5G and HONOR Pad 8, and one will be its most affordable phone in the Philippines, the HONOR X6.

The first model from HONOR‘s premium N Series smartphone lineup to run Android 12 layered with HONOR Magic UI 6.1, the HONOR 70 5G targets vlogging enthusiasts. It’s equipped with a dual main rear-camera setup that pairs a 54-megapixel Sony IMX800 image sensor with a 50-megapixel ultrawide and macro camera.

Thanks to the newly introduced Solo Cut mode with Person Autofocus Tracking technology, the device allows users to create portrait vlogs that spotlight a specific person in a group video. It also offers Dual Video Streaming for shooting two videos simultaneously — one featuring one subject and the other capturing the whole group. Below is a tweet posted last month that summarizes the smartphone’s specs.

In Europe where gadgets tend to be more expensive, the HONOR 70 5G is priced from €479.99 (around P27,621 or $468 sans taxes).

The HONOR Pad 8, while not a high-end one, promises to offer an audio-visual experience that meets many people’s multimedia needs. Think 12-inch 2K FullView LCD display that bagged TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light and TÜV Rheinland Flicker Free certifications. Think eight integrated loudspeakers and 7,250mAh battery with support for 22.5-watt fast charging.

The Pad 8 likewise has a lightweight aluminum body and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chip and features Multi-Screen Collaboration for efficient smartphone-tablet operation on the same screen and Smart Multi-Window for displaying up to four windows on one screen. In Europe, it costs €249.99 (P14,385 or $244). You can check out its highlights below.

As for the HONOR X6, the entry-level handset packs a 50-megapixel triple camera on the back, a 5,000mAh battery with 10-watt charging that is said to last up to 17 hours of continuous video playback on a single charge, and 128GB for your storage needs.

You also get a 6.5-inch LCD display, a 5-megapixel selfie camera, 4GB RAM, and a MediaTek Helio G25 4G processor. Just like the HONOR 70 5G and HONOR Pad 8, it has access to Google Mobile services and ships with Android 12-based Magic UI 6.1 out of the box. In Malaysia, the 4GB/128GB HONOR X6 is priced at RM599 (P7,627 or $129).

The October 18 launch will be livestreamed here (take note that the video will be accessible when the event kicks off on that day, but do bookmark it now).
