HONOR 20 Pro + HONOR 20 Price, Offers + Specifications!

The HONOR 20 Pro and HONOR 20 smartphones have just been launched, both in London and in Kuala Lumpur!

Let’s take a look at these latest HONOR flagship smartphones with 4 rear cameras – their key features, the official launch presentation, and their prices and offers!

 

What Trump Ban? HONOR 20 Series Launched!

In spite of the ongoing troubles with the Trump Administration, HONOR went ahead and launched their latest HONOR 20 series flagship smartphones!

In their launch presentation, details were short on their response to the Trump ban. They would only say that they are confident of supporting their customers, and that they are here to stay.

Now, the phones on display at the launch had Google Play services and Play Store installed. But as you will see later, they are both not available for sale just yet.

 

HONOR 20 Series Key Features

Both models have the same 6.26-inch LPTS display, and run on the same HUAWEI Kirin 980 mobile SoC.

They too have the same 32 MP front camera, and the same colour options – Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black in Malaysia, with Phantom Black and Phantom Blue available in other countries.

They differ in three main areas, specifically…

HONOR 20 colours

Memory + Storage

The HONOR 20 has 6 GB of LPDDR4x memory and 128 GB of internal storage, with while the Pro version comes with 8 GB of LPDDR4x memory and 256 GB of internal storage.

Rear Cameras

Both devices feature a quad camera system at the back. However, there are quite big differences :

  • The HONOR 20 has a 48MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, while Pro version features a wider, brighter f/1.4 aperture and adds OIS capability.
  • The HONOR 20 has a 2MP depth sensor, instead of the Pro version’s 8MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 and OIS.
  • They both have the same 16MP super-wide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture.
  • They both have the same 2MP macro camera with f/2.4 aperture.

The 48 MP main camera on both smartphones use the Sony IMX586 image sensor, and defaults to 12 MP because this allows for better image quality, thanks to the larger “combined” pixel size of 1.6 µm.
