Despite not being the Pro version of HONOR’s new flagship series, the HONOR 20 still sports near identical flagship features as its bigger brother. For starters, it houses Huawei’s high-end Kirin 980 SoC, 6GB RAM, and a 6.26-inch Full HD+ punch hole display. On that note, that punch hole houses a 32MP front-facing camera; the same camera sensor as the one used by the HONOR 20 Pro.
In terms of storage, the HONOR 20 comes with a hefty 128GB, but alas, there is no microSD card slot to expand the storage. Of course, powering it all is a pretty hefty 3750mAh non-removable battery.
Of course, the main attraction of the HONOR 20 is none other than the quad-camera main array that sits at the back of the phone. The camera comprises a 48MP Sony IMX586 main sensor, a 16MP super wide-angle sensor, a 2MP macro lens that is also present in the HONOR 20 PRO. But instead of an 8MP telephoto camera, you get a 2MP depth sensor instead.
Price-wise, the HONOR 20 will cost RM1699, but availability of the device has yet to be determined. Initially, pre-orders for the phone were supposed to have commenced from 24 May till 28 May. With the launch of the phone set to take place on 29 May.
HONOR cites logistical issues with the phone’s shipments, though we suspect that the actual reason could be due to both the brand and the phone being affected by the recent ban put in place by the US’ Trump administration.
To that end, HONOR will also be giving out free gifts worth RM500 with every purchase of the HONOR 20 upon availability. Do note that this offer will be limited and that terms and conditions will apply.
