Honor 20S new version with triple rear cameras and waterdrop notch launched: price, specifications

“Honor 20S mid-range phone comes with Kirin 710 SoC, triple rear cameras with 48MP primary sensor and runs on Android 9.0 Pie with Magic UI 2.1.0 skin”

Honor 20S smartphone has been silently unveiled in Russia. The handset is vastly different from the model that currently sells in China. It doesn’t have a punch-hole design; instead, there is a waterdrop notch on the front to accommodate the selfie snapper. The side-mounted fingerprint sensor is being moved to the back below the camera module. The biggest of all difference is the Russian Honor 20S model ships with the Kirin 710 SoC, instead of the more powerful Kirin 810 SoC. There is a triple camera setup on the back consisting of a 48MP primary sensor.
