Unparalleled Camera System for the Ultimate Vlogging Experience  

With the rapid growth of short videos, young people have increasingly turned to 
vlogging to record and share their daily moments with the world around them. 
The HONOR 50 brings the one-take vlog shooting experience to the next level. 

Equipped with a 32MP front camera with a 90 degree viewing angle[2], users can

trends, the HONOR 50 features an ultra-slim bezel on the front and 2.5D 
polishing glass edges on both upper and lower sides of the display, delivering 
a smooth surface to bring users a greater experience visually and in hand.

and shimmers, making it the perfect fashion statement to match any outfit. 

Paying homage to the classic twin lens reflex camera, the HONOR 50 adopts a 
dual ring camera design made up of two concentric circles on the back, 
resembling a pair of eyes to help users see more of the world around them.

the top circle featuring the main camera is polished with the same classic, 
timeless metal ring on the edge.
