Honor 20 Pro and Honor 20 to be affordable versions of P30 series
The Honor brand, which is owned by Huawei, has published an official invitation to a press conference dedicated to the announcement of the flagship smartphone Honor 20 . The event will be held on May 21 in London.
Honor launched a teaser poster to denote a launch date in a ciphered message in simple maths using rules of ordering which converts to 521, meaning the product is set for launch on May 21. The teaser contains a reference to the Honor 20 series so that no one has any doubts.
This year, in addition to the standard Honor 20, which is an update from last year’s Honor 10 model, a larger model Honor 20 Pro will also be presented.
The new Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro models are expected to offer more affordable alternatives to the older brothers Huawei P30 and P30 Pro.
At the same time, the Honor 20 Pro should inherit from the P30 Pro the main 40-megapixel photo module Sony IMX600. The main camera of the Honor 20 Pro smartphone will also be quadruple, like the P30 Pro, but it is unlikely that the periscope telephoto module will remain in the configuration, considering different price segments.
The image of the London Bridge on the background is nothing but a hint at the main feature – the camera. More precisely, on the ability of the latter to receive bright and detailed images in the dark. Obviously, this mainly concerns the older model Honor 20 Pro, while the camera of the younger Honor 20 will be simpler.
Judging by the unofficial renders leaked from cover makers, outwardly Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro will be very similar to the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro.
It is assumed that the model Honor 20 Pro will even receive a in-display fingerprint scanner, just like the P30 Pro. The device may come with the newest Kirin 980 SoC . Alas, there are no detailed technical specifications for Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro, so it’s unclear what other camera features will be toned down compared to flagship P30 and P30 Pro. As far as the Honor 20 Pro is concerned, it will be inferior to the P30 Pro in terms of photo and video capabilities .
As for the other characteristics, there is no reliable data about them yet, but there is no doubt that the new products will receive a lot of RAM and large screens.
