Alleged Honor 20 render pops up alongside impressive spec sheet
Huawei sub-brand Honor is hard at work on its next-gen flagship and, thanks to a new leak, the smartphone’s spec sheet and design have apparently been revealed, although it’s still worth taking the info with a grain of salt.

Rumored to be called the Honor 20, the flagship looks set to borrow its display from the upcoming Huawei P30. This means consumers should expect a large 6.1-inch OLED panel that boasts a tiny waterdrop-like notch and a reduced chin. Thin side bezels and an in-screen fingerprint scanner are to be expected too.

Over on the rear, the render provided reveals a vertically-aligned triple camera setup. The top camera, which sits separately from the rest, will reportedly boast a 48-megapixel resolution. The second and third sensors, on the other hand, allegedly offer 20-megapixel and 8-megapixel resolutions respectively.

Unfortunately, the functionality of the second and third cameras wasn’t specified. However, it seems likely that one will probably offer a telephoto lens while the other could concentrate on depth sensing. Alternatively, the latter may arrive paired with a wide-angle lens. A 32-megapixel selfie camera is listed too.

The Honor 20 is, rather unsurprisingly, set to arrive powered by the high-end Kirin 980. This chip will allegedly be paired with a total of three configurations. The first two offer 128GB of internal storage and the choice of either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. The third variant, on the other hand, sticks with 8GB of RAM but bumps the internal storage up to 256GB.

Completing the setup will presumably be Android 9 Pie paired EMUI 9. A 3,650mAh battery coupled with support for 22.5W fast charging is reportedly on the cards too, as are a number of gaming-focused enhancements which boost performance. 

The Honor 20 should be announced towards the end of April or early May. Sales of the smartphone should commence fairly immediately across the globe. In terms of pricing, the 6/128GB and 8/128GB models will reportedly cost 2,999 yuan ($447) and 3,399 yuan ($507) in China respectively. The top-of-the-range 8/256GB version will allegedly retail at 3,799 yuan ($566). Pricing in Europe and the US, however, should be slightly higher.
