Honor 20, Honor 20 Pro, and Huawei Y5 2019 get EEC certification

“The Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro flagship smartphones are expected to launch soon”

Earlier in January, Honor unveiled its latest View series smartphone called the Honor View 20. Now, the company is planning to launch a couple of non-View flagship handsets in the near future. The phones are expected to be called the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro. Ahead of the unveiling, the Honor 20 price and specifications details were leaked on the Chinese social networking website Weibo. Now, both the smartphones have been certified by the Eurasian Economic Commission certification agency in Europe. In addition, the upcoming Huawei Y5 2019 has received the same certification.

The Honor 20 and 20 Pro have been certified by Eurasian under the model numbers YAL-L21 and YAL-L41, respectively. The certification was granted by the agency just today. As for the Huawei Y5 2019, the phone has appeared on the website under the model number AMN-LX9. Sadly, the certification hasn’t revealed anything about the features of these smartphones at the moment.

According to the earlier reports, the Honor 20 could feature a 6.1-inch OLED display. Powering the smartphone will be a Kirin 980 processor, and the phone will also have performance boosting features such as Gaming+, Link Turbo, CPU Turbo, and GPU Turbo. The phone is said to arrive in three RAM and storage configurations – 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 256GB. Software-wise, we can expect the handset to boot EMUI 9.0 on Android Pie and have plenty of AI features.


The Honor 20 is rumoured to have three cameras on the back – 48-megapixel + 20-megapixel + 8-megapixel. For selfies, the handset is said to have a 32-megapixel shooter. The smartphone is tipped to have a DxOMark score of 108, which would put the device right behind the Mate 20 handsets. Reports indicate that the phone will be powered by a 3,650mAh battery with 22.5W SuperCharging support.

As for the price, Honor 20 is rumoured to start at RMB 2,999 (about Rs 30,800) for the base variant and go up to RMB 3,799 (roughly Rs 39,200) for the most high-end model. Sadly, details regarding the Honor 20 Pro aren’t available at the moment, but don’t expect it to be much different than the Honor 20, with a few upgrades. Since the phones have received certification from a regulatory agency, we can believe them to be unveiled very soon.
