Honor 200 Pro brings a more capable Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chipset and 66W wireless charging while the vanilla 200 opts for the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chip and lacks wireless charging. Honor 200 Pro also gets a dedicated Honor C1+ chip for improved wireless and cellular connectivity.

The main shooter on the back of the 200 Pro is a custom H9000 sensor – a 50MP 1/1.3″ shooter based on the Omnivision OV50H. This is essentially the same sensor used on the flagship Honor Magic6 Pro with 1.2µm pixels, f/1.9 aperture, and OIS. Honor 200 dials back to a 1/1.56” IMX906 main sensor with f/1.95 aperture and OIS.

Both Honor 200 and 200 Pro employ a 50MP IMX856 telephoto sensor with 2.5x optical zoom, f/2.4 aperture, and OIS. Honor partnered with legendary French photography studio Harcourt on a new Harcourt portrait mode which simulates professional studio lighting with the help of AI. The Harcourt portrait mode was trained with a machine learning process of Harcourt portraits that dials exposure, light and shadow, and tone enhancement on the fly to produce studio-grade portrait shots.
