ASUS VivoBook S14/S15

HONOR smartphone just launched the HONOR 20 and the HONOR 20 Pro. Yes, we know that there is a ban coming soon – but that’s not the point today. The HONOR 20 Pro also marks the first ever smartphone from HONOR that has a total of 4 usable cameras. The 4th camera here is a macro camera.

This also marks the first ever departure from the usual single phone from the HONOR (number) series. With two phones now, I feel like the HONOR Play 2 is unnecessary.

Anyway, the HONOR 20 has this list of specs:

  • 6.26-inch IPS LCD display
  • Kirin 980 chipset
  • 6GB RAM
  • 128GB storage
  • Quad rear-facing cameras
    • Ultrawide angle: 20MP f/2.2 with PDAF
    • Main: 48MP f/1.8 with PDAF
    • Macro: 2MP f/2.4 fixed focus
    • Depth sensor: 2MP
  • 32MP f/2.0 selfie camera
  • 3,750mAh battery with SuperCharge

This makes the HONOR 20 having quite an interesting smartphone as it has the flagship specs and also comes with a special macro camera. This is surely the first ever smartphone to have a dedicated macro camera, albeit just 2MP.

It is priced at €499. We still have to wait until 23rd May for the official Malaysian launch to know the final Malaysian price.


Then comes the HONOR 20 Pro. This is the true flagship from the HONOR (number) series of smartphones, and it has this list of specs:

  • 6.26-inch IPS LCD display
  • Kirin 980 chipset
  • 8GB RAM
  • 256GB storage
  • Quad rear-facing cameras
    • Ultrawide angle: 20MP f/2.2 with PDAF
    • Main: 48MP f/1.8 with PDAF; OIS
    • Telephoto with 3x zoom: 8MP f/2.4 with PDAF; OIS
    • Macro: 2MP f/2.4 fixed focus
  • 32MP f/2.0 selfie camera
  • 4,000mAh battery with SuperCharge

From here, we can see that the HONOR 20 Pro does have some other extras when compared to its base model. The Pro variant has 8GB RAM with 256GB storage, and another telephoto camera that replaced the depth sensor.

The price is reasonable as well, clocking in at €599. Still cheaper than the OnePlus 7 Pro base model, actually.

Once again, we’re waiting for the official Malaysian launch that is happening on 23rd May to know what’s the retail price.


UPDATE: HONOR Malaysia just launched the HONOR 20 series of smartphones
