In recent weeks the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro smartphones were approved by the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) body which has confirmed their existance.

The two models showed up as YAL-L21 and YAL-L41 but will be named Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro and are likely to be launched in China on the 25th of April.

Last year there was the Honor 10 and Honor 10 Lite but no Pro model. It could be that Honor are replicating their sibling Huawei, which recently launch the P30 and P30 Pro.

Details of the phones were revealed on a Chinese website, CNMO, via Weibo, that revealed several details about the new phones.

The Honor 20, which will be the more affordable of the two is likely to feature a fairly large 6.1-inch OLED display. The handset will also boast of an in-screen fingerprint scanner.

The Honor 20 Pro and will have a more advanced camera set up to compete with the P30 Pro and it is liekly to use the same sensor as that phone, the Sony IMX600.

Details regarding the display size and the battery capacity are still unclear for the Honor 20 Pro. What is believed is that the device will come in a 6GB +128GB – in comparison the P30 Pro has 8GB, though the Honor will be much cheaper.

Both phones will certainly be powered by the Kirin 980 SoC which is the chipset used by all Huawei/Honor flagship phones.

The Honor 10 was launched back in May 2018, so a late April Chinese launch followed by an EU launch in May makes a lot of sense.

The leaks indicated a price of ¥2,999 (roughly $450, £350) but with UK pricing typically being higher, it will likely match the previous generation launch price of £399.
