While we are here anticipating for the HONOR 20 to be launched on 21st May 2019, we are already seeing leaks left and right. Today, we discovered that there is a new leak from WinFuture.de and with it comes a very detailed analysis on its features and aesthetic.
This leak goes in-depth with the HONOR 20 and found out that the HONOR 20 is sporting a 6.26-inch IPS LCD display. That means the HONOR 20 is not using an under-display fingerprint scanner, but using a side fingerprint scanner instead. Great idea!
As for the notch, the HONOR 20 is using something similar to the HONOR View20 that we loved as well. The cutout is small and positioned at the top left corner.
The leak goes in deeper by also specifying the specs of the phone. The HONOR 20 will allegedly come with at least 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, but unsure if there is a microSD card available for expansion.
Allegedly, the HONOR 20 has virtual 9.1 as well, according to the leak. I do know the 7.1 surround sound arrangement but for 9.1 sound system, I have no idea where and how the other 2 channels are positioned.
On another note, the leak also specified the same camera specs as we covered another leak earlier. It seems that while Huawei focuses on zooming far away, HONOR is focusing on the smaller things with its new 2MP macro camera.
The leak also specified that the HONOR 20 has a 3,750mAh battery and comes with SuperCharge charger. It is a 22.5W. Also just like the View20, it will be using Magic UI 2.1 instead of EMUI.
The alleged leaked HONOR 20 also stated that the phone will come in “at least two colors”, namely the Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black.
That is all the information that was specified in the leak. We pretty much know everything about the HONOR 20 now, although we are still waiting for more information on the elusive HONOR 20 Pro which is stated to have a telephoto lens.
UPDATE: HONOR Malaysia also published a teaser unboxing video of the HONOR 20 Pro. Yes, they censored how the phone looks on the box, but did not censor the word “Pro” on the packaging.
This confirms that HONOR is indeed releasing two smartphones on 21st May at London, namely the 20 and also the 20 Pro.
What’s interesting is that at the end of the unboxing teaser video, all of the contents are laid out on the table and we can see something that polarizes many of us.
I’m obviously talking about… the dongle. That’s the one thing that caught my eye. This might be the first ever HONOR smartphone that does not have a 3.5mm audio jack. At least HONOR included a dongle for you.
If the HONOR 20 series really does not have a headphone jack, then it makes sense since only digital audio can bring more than 2.1 channel audio with a single, tiny cable.
UPDATE 2: Yes, another update – because we have a big development here.
Someone just leaked images of the phone, claiming that it is the HONOR 20 Pro. Here we can confirm a few details – there is a punch hole at the top left corner like the View20, missing headphone jack, surprisingly – a fingerprint scanner at the side.
Here is also where we can see the see that the alleged HONOR 20 Pro also has a quadruple camera setup. We are unable to confirm its camera types yet, but there are 4 cameras for sure. If the earlier leak is true, then we’ll be seeing a main camera, telephoto, ultrawide angle, and another macro camera.
