Huawei's Honor will continue to grow, claims top official

Friday, 24 May, 2019

The Huawei drama continues as laptops made by the Chinese company silently disappeared from Microsoft's online stores both globally and in Australia.

As for the display of the device, it features a massive 6.2 inch display that has a 2480×1080 Pixel resolution which is also almost - identical to the P30 PRO and they both run on the latest Huawei's SoC, the Kirin 980 Processor with 8GB of RAM space.

The Honor 20 Pro will come on the market with a suggested retail price of Euro 599, while the Honor 20 will cost Euro 499.

Both the Honor 20 Pro and OnePlus 7 Pro have shaped up to be quite the contenders in the smartphone market. The devices feature Huawei's flagship Kirin 980 processor, quad rear cameras, and side-mounted fingerprint scanners, all fronted by a large, 16 centimeter "all-view" display and 32-mega-pixel selfie camera.

The HONOR 20 also comes with the same 48-megapixel primary sensor but it has f/1.8 aperture lens and doesn't have OIS. This design cements our leadership in smartphone craftsmanship, which is firmly rooted in HONOR's principal approach of light play. However, you are out of luck for now if you need external mic support. The Honor 20 Lite has already been announced in Malaysia and UK.

And here's a shot from the phone's 2-MP macro cam. Also, there's no stabilization added to any lenses on the Honor 20. Staples like laser autofocus with Honor's signature AI Ultra Clarity mode, Super Night shot, Moon shot and others are all included here. I believe some of you receive an update when you got your OnePlus 7 Pro.

Where the two will compete the most will be in the cameras and, again, the two are surprisingly similar.

As far as the battery's concerned, the Honor 20 Pro comes equipped with a 4,000 mAh battery, along with a 22.5W charging adapter in the box. The Honor 20 Pro also uses proprietary graphene sheet cooling technology to ensure the device stays cool during intense gaming sessions. It's a neat trick, though like a lot of things that claim to be holographic, it's not exactly on the same level as Leia's iconic call for help.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding Honor and Google at the moment, these phones do look impressive on paper though, and if priced aggressively could do well in SA.

The Honor 20 gets 6GB of RAM and it has 128GB of onboard storage.

The Honor 20 is slimmer than the Pro - 7.87mm vs. 8.44mm - and it has a slightly smaller battery, 3,750mAh.

While the Honor 20 Pro doesn't have a headphone jack or wireless charging, it does have an IR blaster. Each model has four rear cameras, plus a punch-hole selfie lens on the front. 30x digital zoom is also present on the phone with the Huawei P30 Pro offering 50x zoom.

The Honor 20 series will become available in three color variants, namely Phantom Black, Phantom Blue, and Icelandic White. In India, the company has joined hands with Flipkart for the sale of smartphones.

Now, the Honor 20 Pro isn't a shiny, feature packed premium flagship like the Huawei P30 Pro (Review) or the OnePlus 7 Pro (review).
