“Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro are expected to pack Kirin 980 chipset, run EMUI based on Android 9.0 Pie, and feature Huawei P30’s night mode.”
Huawei’s sub-brand Honor announced on Monday that it would be launching the Honor 20 series at an event in London on May 21st. The flagship duo has been in the news for quite some time and the key specifications, including pricing, were revealed. Unlike every year, Honor will be launching two models in the series this time, and they would be called Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro.
The Honor 20, successor to last year’s Honor 10, is expected to sport a 6.1-inch OLED display with a waterdrop notch and will reportedly have an in-display fingerprint sensor. The handset 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 smartphone is expected to support 3x optical zoom and 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.
On the other hand, the high-end Honor 20 Pro is expected to pack a quad-camera setup at the rear with Sony IMX600 as the primary sensor. Kirin 980 flagship chipset is likely to be found on both the models. Honor might differentiate the two models with slight design changes, and the camera setup. The Huawei P30’s night mode is likely to make a return, going by the teaser image. Leaks also suggest 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.
As most of the details are based on rumours, leaks and reports that surfaced the internet, nothing is confirmed yet. Stay tuned for more information.
