HONOR 200 Pro 5G set to launch in SA shortly

  • HONOR South Africa is preparing to launch two more models in its 200 series locally.
  • The HONOR 200 Pro 5G is expected to be unveiled later this month.
  • It is the first Pro model in the flagship numbered series to official launch in SA.

HONOR is currently launching its 200 series of smartphones in South Africa, but you likely knew that as the premium-mid-range 200 Lite has gone on sale locally. This device is one of three set to land locally at the time of writing, with the 200 5G and now the 200 Pro 5G expected in SA later this month.

The latter is notable as it is the first Pro model in the brand’s flagship numbered series to be launched in South Africa in an official capacity.

“We are excited to launch the HONOR 200 Pro from the Number Series in South Africa for the first time. This follows the success of the HONOR 90 – where the brand witnessed accelerated growth and eagerness from consumers. We continue to commit ourselves to bringing cutting-edge technology and performance to South Africa,” explained HONOR South Africa CEO Fred Zhou, in a release shared with Hypertext.

What separates the Pro iteration from the standard 200 is the camera array. Here the HONOR 200 Pro 5G features a features a triple camera setup on the rear which includes a 50MP Portrait main camera, 50MP portrait telephoto lens, 12MP Ultra Wide-Angle lens, and a 50MP Portrait Selfie lens up front.

The Pro model also features a larger display with better resolution, more powerful processor, and larger storage configuration.

It will also carry a higher price tag, although HONOR South Africa is yet to confirm official pricing for these two flagship iterations in the 200 series. It has also stayed mum on when it is expected to go on sale, but we anticipate that to happen later this month.

“Soon to be available at local retailers and network providers, the HONOR 200 Pro will be available in Ocean Cyan and Black, while the HONOR 200 will be available in Moonlight White and Black,” the company confirmed.

“Purchases of the HONOR 200 and HONOR 200 Pro will include free gifts to the value of R6 999, including an HONOR SuperCharger plus the cable, a screen protector, free postal repair with pickup and delivery service, a 3-year battery health protection warranty and a 180-day screen accident warranty, which excludes labour fees,” it concluded.
