Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro: everything we think we know about them before their presentation

ByFelicity Rosa 2019-05-21 839

The year started strong for the brand with the Honor View20, a flagship that tasted that hole in the screen for the front camera that seemed to start to draw as an alternative trend to the notch. But attending the customs of the manufacturer, we could expect a shipment of what would be his top range by antonomasia and no surnames, and once again rumors and leaks make us visualize what those HONOR 20 and HONOR 20 Pro will be like.

Honor 20 Pro

Because yes, this time we talk about two terminals and not just the one that would be the direct heir of the Honor 10. These would be added to the Honor 20 Lite, with three rear cameras and notch, so let's see what is rumored for the next flagships.

Notch and hole to choose

It seems that in Honor formalize their commitment to the hole in the screen and do not add to the fashion of mechanical modules so that the screen is the only thing that populates the front. Following the wake of the View20, the Honor 20 Pro would also have a hole for the front camera according to filtered images.

In those photos, which showed the phone on its box, was also the characteristic interface of Magic UI on Android 9 Pie with the icon of 'Fortnite', which gives the impression that the Honor 20 Pro could bring pre-installed the popular game or that there was some special function similar to the one we saw with 'PUBG' with the Honor Play.

In addition, what leaked on Weibo (the Chinese social network), the Honor 20 screen would be a 6.1-inch OLED, this one with a drop-shaped notch similar to what we saw in the 20 Lite. This could be one of the differences between the standard version and the Pro, perhaps with a larger screen size for the second.

Digital Trends also pointed out that a documentation they had access to spoke of 6.26 inches for the Honor 20 screen, but speaking in addition to a 4.5 millimeter hole (and 91.6% of screen usage) Maybe they are the dimensions of the Pro diagonal.

That there is no power or back cameras (and record)

The leak in Weibo also talked about that both would integrate the most powerful Huawei processor, the Kirin 980, not knowing how much RAM would accompany it (with the possibility that the Pro could have more). For Honor 20 there was talk of a battery of 3,650 milliamps / hour, with a fast charge of 22.5 watts.

Speaking of photography, some rumors have pointed to that at least the largest of the Honor 20 would integrate a rear photo quartet similar to the one we saw on the Huawei P30 Pro, with a Super Spectrum RYYB sensor and the 3D ToF sensor (Time-of- flight). Other leaks talk about a 48 megapixel sensor (perhaps the same as we saw for the View20), so it could be that the 20 Pro integrates the 40 megapixel, a 5x periscope zoom and a ToF like the P30 Pro and that the of 48 was for the 20, as stated in GSM Arena.

But just yesterday was the president of Honor, Zhao Ming, who shared social networks photographs that would have been taken with the Honor 20 Pro: two night shots and one day with wide-angle. Although the surprise came when analyzing the data * .exif of the night photographs, showing an aperture f / 1.4.

As for the wide-angle camera, an aperture of f / 2.2 was seen. But if confirmed the data of the main, the Honor 20 Pro would have the brightest lens on the market at the opening level, thus advancing the Samsung Galaxy S and its f / 1.5, although it should be remembered that they are data *. exif and that there is not much difficulty in modifying them.

For the other cameras, there is a 20-megapixel sensor with a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens with an 8-megapixel sensor and three-fold optical zoom. However, other sources have pointed to a sensor of 16 megapixels for wide-angle, one of 2 megapixels for macro photography and another of 2 megapixels that could be that TOF.

We will leave doubts soon

Honor wanted to play with those who we expect to know about their launches with the own presentation date of their terminals. Some time ago they shared an image with a simple mathematical operation that gave us a date, May 21, so we hope to know something more this day.

There have also been rumors of prices, speaking about $ 399 to change for the most basic model of Honor 20 (6 GB and 128 GB), about 450 euros for the model with 8 GB of RAM would reach 450 euros and above the 500 euros for the 8 GB RAM + 256 GB, seeing the colors blue, white and black. Of all this we will leave doubts, apparently, on Tuesday, so in a few days we will tell you everything in detail.
