Preparing for the launch of the Magic 6 series, Honor has quietly released the X50 Pro smartphone in China today. This low-key release may be due to the fact that Honor is positioning the X50 Pro as an offline-oriented device, meaning it will be sold primarily in physical stores.
However, there are rumors that the X50 Pro may be released under the name Honor X50 GT, which will be focused on online sales. Honor has confirmed the launch of the X50 GT in China on January 6, equipped with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, which is the same as the X50 Pro. So a potential rebranding could be on the cards.
Anyway, the smartphone is available in two shades – green and black – and in a single 12/256 GB variant for 2,799 yuan (approximately $425).

The X50 Pro features a 6.78-inch curved OLED display with a 1.5K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. It is also a 10-bit screen that supports PWM brightness control at 1920 Hz and has a built-in fingerprint scanner for biometric data.
