HONOR is launching its newest mid-range phone, the HONOR 90, in Malaysia to much fanfare. Check out the specs, features, and prices in Malaysia here.

What’s new:

The HONOR 90 brings some of its best features from the flagship Magic series, including a 6.7-inch 120Hz OLED display with a virtually flicker-free display thanks to 3840Hz PWM flickering. This feature is also certified by TUV Rheinland.

On the hardware side, it has a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chip with 5G connectivity, 66-watt HONOR Supercharge to power its 5000mAh battery capacity, and HONOR MagicUI 7.1 based on Android 13, with Google Mobile Services right out of the box.

There’s also the Dual SIM connectivity, but you’ll have the option to use an eSIM, too, which is placed in the phone’s SIM2 slot.

HONOR takes pride in its upgraded AI camera features with the HONOR 90’s 200MP triple camera and 50MP selfie camera setups, including enhanced HDR, multi-focal portrait with its very own portrait filters, moving photos, emoji creation, and Instant Movie.

The price:

Ahead of the official launch today, many retail agents have already spread the prices of the new phones. The HONOR 90 will retail in Malaysia in two storage configurations:

  • HONOR 90 12GB+256GB – MYR 1,799 (~PHP 21,700)
  • HONOR 90 12GB+512GB – MYR 2,099 (~PHP 25,300)

This makes the HONOR 90 the most affordable smartphone with 512GB internal storage in the market today. Freebies for Malaysia pre-orders include HONOR Earbuds X5, an extra one-year warranty (making it a total of two years warranty for the device), a 6-month screen replacement warranty, and an MYR 100 in-store credit which can be used to instantly discount their new phone purchase.

Is it coming to the Philippines? Here’s what we know:

If you’re asking if this phone will land in the Philippines? WalasTech is confirming that the HONOR 90 is set to launch in the country in the coming weeks. We’ve personally seen pre-order listings sprouting out at online marketplaces, with a free JBL Flip 6 speaker worth PHP 7,499 as a freebie. Several stores list the device as available to pre-order until August 15. Do tune in to find out its official price when it launches in the country soon.
