Honor 50 launched worldwide with Google software

Wednesday 27 October 2021 | 13:45 CET | News
Honor has announced the global launch of its mid-range Honor 50 smartphone around 4 months after it was unveiled. The phone is the first Honor device to ship with Google Mobile Services software in over a year following the decision of parent company Huawei, which has been subject to US sanctions since 2019, to sell the brand to a consortium of buyers, including funds backed by its home city government of Shenzhen. The Honor 50 is launching in a total of 40 markets worldwide at an RRP of EUR 529.
