Honor 20 Pro added to the list of Google certified smartphones

“The Honor 20 Pro is the brand’s latest flagship offering with a quad camera setup at the rear”

After the trade ban that the US Department of Commerce put on the Chinese tech giant Huawei and its sub-brand Honor, it appeared that the recently launched Honor 20 Pro might be the first victim. The smartphone was introduced alongside the Honor 20 a few days after. Notably, the Honor 20 was already certified by Google, but the Honor 20 Pro didn’t get Google’s certification at that time. However, now Google has also certified the Pro variant as it has appeared in the list of Google certified devices on the tech titan’s website.

Honor 20 Pro Google Certification

First spotted on XDA Developers, the Honor 20 pro was included in Google’s list of Play supported devices with the model number YAL-L41, which is the international variant of the phone. Notably, the smartphone has also been certified by Google under Huawei Nova 5T Pro, which suggests that the company will be selling the handset in some markets under this moniker. It’s worth mentioning that the Honor 20 was added to the list on June 1st, with its regular as well as the Huawei Nova 5T branding.

Honor 20 Pro-2

To recall, the Honor 20 Pro was launched in India earlier this month. The flagship features a 6.26-inch display bearing a resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels and a hole on the top-left corner that houses the selfie camera. The smartphone is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 980 7nm processor, aided by GPU Turbo 3.0, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. The handset comes with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, Google Assistant that can be accessed through the power button, and a new Dynamic Holographic Design.


Talking about the other features, the Honor 20 Pro has a quad 48MP + 8MP + 16MP + 2MP primary camera setup at the rear. For selfies, there’s a 32MP camera on the front. The smartphone boots Android 9 Pie with Magic 2.1 UI out of the box. The connectivity options include dual-SIM slots, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C, and A-GPS. A 4,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging support keeps the whole package alive.
