A Performance that Goes Beyond  Bottom of Form

The HONOR 90 5G is the first HONOR N Series smartphone to run the latest HONOR MagicOS 7.1 based on Android 13 and supports Google Mobile Services (GMS). This advanced operating system offers a range of upgraded and customised features, providing users with a smarter and more convenient experience than ever before.

The Revolutionary 0-Risk Eye-Comfort Display

HONOR has set a new standard in eye care technology with the HONOR 90 5G. This cutting-edge smartphone features the industry-first 0 Risk Eye-Comfort Display, incorporating the highest achieved 3840Hz PWM Dimming technology.

With the Dynamic Dimming Technology, Circadian Night Display and TÜV Rheinland Flicker-Free Certification, HONOR aims to deliver an unparalleled eye care experience, leveraging cutting-edge innovations to set new benchmarks in the industry.

Knowing that our eyes often feel more comfortable in natural light conditions, the HONOR 90 uses dynamic light that resembles natural light rhythm to stimulate ciliary muscle movement through Dynamic Dimming. This innovative feature helps to alleviate eye fatigue by as much as 18% by increasing blood circulation in the ciliary muscle.

With its Circadian Night Display, the HONOR 90 5G automatically adjusts the display to warmer colours and reduces blue light, promoting melatonin secretion for improved sleep. This feature can increase melatonin levels by 20%, resulting in better sleep quality and longer sleep duration for users.

The HONOR 90 has received the TÜV Rheinland Flicker Free Certification, guaranteeing a flicker-free viewing experience even at lower brightness levels. It achieves a risk-free dimming level, making it perfect for today’s content-hungry generation who spend prolonged hours viewing and watching on their smartphones.
