“Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro are expected to feature Kirin 980 SoC and run Android 9.0 Pie-based EMUI”
Honor is planning to launch two new mid-range smartphones in the coming days and the phones are said to be called Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro. Both the handsets have received EEC certification recently and now ahead of the launch, the specifications, pricing, and release date of the Honor 20 series have surfaced on the internet. The phones come with YAL-L21 and YAL-L41 model numbers, respectively. The Honor 20 is expected to sport a 6.1-inch OLED with a waterdrop notch and will reportedly have an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Huawei’s in-house Kirin 980 SoC will reportedly be a standard on both Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro. The regular Honor 20 has been tipped to pack a 32MP front-facing camera and feature a triple rear camera setup with the 48MP primary sensor, a 20MP super-wide-angle lens, and an 8MP telephoto lens. The handset is expected to support 3x optical zoom. The phone will likely run on Android 9.0 Pie-based EMUI out of the box. The phone is said to arrive in three RAM and storage configurations – 6GB RAM + 128GB, 8GB RAM + 128GB, and 8GB RAM + 256GB. It is expected to come with a 3,650mAh battery that supports 22.5W fast charging.
As for the Honor 20 Pro, the handset will reportedly feature quad-camera setup at the rear with Sony IMX600 as the primary sensor. However, other details about the Honor 20 Pro are scarce at the moment. The leak also reveals that the Honor 20 series will start at a price tag of RMB 2,999 (about Rs 30,800) for the 6GB RAM + 128 GB storage base model, RMB 3399 (about Rs 35,200) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, and RMB 3,799 (around Rs 39,400) for the 8GB RAM + 256GB storage. The Honor 20 series might be announced at an event on April 25th. From the looks of it, Honor 20 and 20 Pro could be trimmed down variants of the P30-series launched recently. As nothing has been confirmed officially, we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt. Stay tuned in for more updates.
