Adjust Comment Print

Of these, the Honor 20 and the Honor 20 Pro belong to the "affordable flagships" category.

"At HONOR, we follow the ethos "Always Better" in everything we do", said George Zhao, President of HONOR. Although Honor is yet to reveal exactly which smartphones will be a part of the Honor 20 series, the leaks and rumours indicate that we will see Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro, in addition to the Honor 20 Lite, which has already been introduced in Malaysia and UK. It says the Honor 20 and its sizeable screen have been squeezed into the same form-factor that you'd typically find on a smartphone with a 5.3-inch display with a 16:9 aspect ratio and bezels above and below the display.

The live streaming of Honor 20 will be live streamed on the company's YouTube channel. Added to this is a quartet of cameras on the rear, with a 48MP wide-angle, 16MP ultra-wide, 8MP telephoto and 2MP macro lenses present. The punch-hole display of both Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro holds the 32MP selfie sensor. Powered by the AI multi-frame stabilization technology and an enhanced algorithm, the mode creates ultra-clear night shots with heightened brightness, lower noise, and better colour preservation.

For photos that are not of your face, you can use the quad camera array at the back. The details and colours are adjusted for enhanced vividness.

The quad-camera on the Honor 20 Pro consists of a 48MP main camera with f/1.4 aperture and Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS). It allows users to capture incredible details as close as 4cm, ideal for photographers who enjoy shooting flora and fauna.

Honor 20 Pro offers 30x digital zoom capabilities, following into the footsteps of its parent.

Saint Louis Blues drop game one to Sharks 6-3
More than 10 days separate Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final in Raleigh and Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden. Louis Blues over the San Jose Sharks , without any major controversy! "He's done that maybe four games in the playoffs".

The 4000 mAh battery is proving to be a workhorse and I have easily been able to go a full day with lots of photography and regular use. The phone is curved at the edges, and though not to everyone's taste, the back features an interesting reflective design that is nearly holographic. As light passes through the prisms in the depth layer, light is reflected and refracted in all directions. It will be available in 4 color options: Midnight Black and Safari Blue for the base model and Phantom Blue and Phantom Black for the higher-end model. It includes three layers- a glass layer, color layer, and depth layer (with micro-crystals that reflect light) to make the rear design a reality. Now on the heels of the global launch, India launch has been teased by Chinese sub-brand. Honor claims that this is the in-screen camera with a diameter of just 4.5mm.

Both the phones have side-mounted fingerprint sensor. There's a 48MP sensor on both phones but the pro version comes with f/1.4 aperture while the standard version comes with f/1.8 aperture.

There were the camera specs of the Honor 20 Pro and the same hasn't been carried over for the Honor 20.

The Honor 20 Pro, however, only had its price announced (€599/£549.99), and no mention of a release date.

Mobile phone expert and industry analyst Ru Bhikha, from uSwitch.com, warned that, despite the impressive appearance of the new Honor line-up, the uncertainty around its future ties with Google and Android will put off many potential buyers.
