Huawei sub-brand Honor is launching the Honor 20 series smartphones next week. The company is launching Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro. The smartphones have been spotted multiple times on the internet, which has revealed most of the specifications. In the latest news, the Honor 20 has not only been spotted on Geekbench, but the renders are out as well.

The Geekbench listings of Honor 20 reveal the device with model number YAL-L21 would have 6GB RAM paired with an Octa-core processor. The device would run on Android 9.0 out of the box. Based on previous reports, it is speculated that the Honor 20 would run on Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 980 and come with 6GB/8GB RAM and have internal storage up to 256GB. WinFuture has published photos and specifications of the Honor 20. As per its report, the Honor 20 would feature a 6.26-inch LCD with a resolution of 1080 * 2340 pixels. 

For optics, the Honor 20 would sport a quad camera setup with a 48MP f/1.8 Sony IMX586 sensor. The other three sensors would include a 16MP ultra-wide sensor and two 2MP sensors.


It is expected to come with a 3,750 mAh battery with SuperCharge fast charging support.

Alongside the Honor 20, the company is also launching a Pro variant. The higher-end variant is speculated to feature a 6.5-inch OLED display with the same HiSilicon Kirin 980. The highlight feature of the device is the rumoured quad camera setup at the back. 

The leaked image on Weibo reveals that Honor 20 Pro would have a periscope-style telephoto lens like the one on the Huawei P30 Pro. The other three sensors include a primary wide angle lens, an ultra-wide angle lens, and a 3D Time of Flight (ToF) sensors, all of them aligned vertically.

The primary sensor is expected to be the same 40MP Sony IMX600 sensor available on the P30 Pro, while some rumours suggest the use of a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor on the Honor 20 Pro. The Laser Focus and LED flash sit right next to the camera unit. The rear panel does not have a fingerprint scanner which indicates that the Honor 20 Pro could have an in-display fingerprint scanner.
