MANILA -- HONOR on Tuesday launched new smartphones and a tablet to tap into the younger market.
At an event in Bonifacio Global City, HONOR unveiled the Lite version of its 90 5G phone, which has a 100MP main camera--smaller than the 200MP main camera of the Honor 90 5G launched in August.
The new phone also has a 90Hz screen refresh rate--versus HONOR 90 5G's 120Hz.
The RAM is also smaller at 8GB, expandable up to 256GB.
Still, HONOR Philippines brand marketing manager Joepy Libo-on the gadget is perfect for young people who are learning, working, and having fun.
"It's perfectly made for students, for parents with kids who are learning, and young professionals who are looking for large storage, excellent cameras," she said.
Meanwhile, the HONOR X6A and HONOR X5 Plus both have smaller storage at 4GB.
HONOR Philippines national training head Jaynard Lamarca, however, noted that the X6A has expandable storage up to 128GB, which can hold up to 28,000 photos, 11,000 songs, and 100 movies.
The X5Plus's storage, in the meantime, is expandable up to 64GB.
Both phones have a 5200 mAh battery that can handle up to 35 hours of continuous audio calls, Lamarca noted.
"Both HONOR X6A and HONOR X5 Plus delivers extra battery feature with less power consumption," he said.
Both phones also make use of dynamic dimming technology, which relieves eye fatigue.
The X6A has a 50MP triple camera, while the X5 Plus has a 50MP dual camera.
HONOR Philippines, noted, however, that their best gadget for online learning is their PadX9.
