The Honor 20 Pro was announced all the way back in May, but the launch was tarnished with the American / Chinese political issues resulting in a trade ban for Huawei.
Thankfully that is (mostly) over and the Honor 20 and 20 Lite have already launched, with the Honor 20 Pro officially launching on £549.99. All phones in the Honor 20 range are part of the Android Q beta program and are guaranteed Android Q as well as the usual security and feature updates you would regularly see from Honor.
As part of the launch, if you pre-order it, you will receive an Honor Magic Watch worth £179.99.
The Honor 20 Pro is available in either Phantom Blue, exclusively at Carphone Warehouse or Phantom Black, available at Amazon, Argos, MPD, Very and A1 Comms as well as Carphone Warehouse.
The Honor 20 Pro is set to be one of the best camera phones on the market for the money. Featuring Honors’s first-ever AI Quad Camera, Dual OIS and industry-largest f/1.4 wide aperture, Honor 20 Pro also comes with Ultra-High ISO Sensitivity, which provides a better low-light photography experience.
The exact rear camera specification includes:
- 48 MP, f/1.4, 28mm (wide), 1/2″, 0.8µm, PDAF/Laser AF, OIS
- 8 MP, f/2.4, 80mm (telephoto), 1/4.4″, PDAF/Laser AF, OIS, 3x optical zoom
- 16 MP, f/2.2, 13mm (ultrawide), 1/3.1″
- 2 MP, f/2.4, 27mm (wide) dedicated macro camera
I am a big fan of both macro shots and ultra-wide so I am very excited to try both of these out in a future review.
On the front of the phone is a 32 MP, f/2.0, 0.8µm camera which is located in a punch hole on the display.
The Honor 20 Pro is an enabler of a truly intelligent experience for its users, driven by the 7nm Kirin 980 AI chipset and industry-leading GPU Turbo 3.0, a feature that enhances the device’s gaming capabilities even further. Honor 20 Pro also features a 4,000 mAh battery that can support a full-day uninterrupted use and 256GB storage combined with 8GB of RAM, providing the headroom for extreme demands. To complete the entire experience, it comes with a Virtual 9.1 Surround Sound system, allowing for a more conducive audio environment.
