Honor 20 lineup launches amidst a ton of skepticism

Amidst all the negative publicity, Huawei recently unveiled its latest in the Honor lineup, the Honor 20 and the Honor 20 Pro along with the P20 Lite. The audience, the host and everyone else related to the Huawei brand has a ton of questions.

Last Sunday, Google had terminated all business relations with Huawei in compliance with the US Government order which has blacklisted the company. The move meant that the company had no longer access to updates to Google’s OS, Android. Moreover, this also means that Huawei won’t have access to newer security patches.’

“No matter what happens, no matter what kind of challenges… just smile and overcome them,” said George Zhao, CEO of the Honor brand. The most spectacular of the trio is the Honor 20 Pro.

The Honor 20 Pro comes with a three-layered design which results in multiple colored finishes which absolutely looks stunning.

The main attraction of the Honor 20 Pro is the quad camera set up at the back. It rocks a 48-megapixel sensor with OIS with f/1.4 aperture which it is widest on any smartphone. Along with it is an 8-megapixel f/2.4 telephoto lens with OIS and another 16-megapixel f/2.2 wide angle lens. The last member of the squad is a 2-megapixel f/2.3 macro lens. The camera has received an overall score of 111 on DXOMark.

Powering this beast is a Kirin 980 chipset with 8GB of RAM along with 256GB of storage. The display is a 6.26 pinhole display like the Galaxy S10 except that the camera is on the left, like the Honor View 20.

Huawei has been recently granted a 90 days window to purchase American goods in order to maintain existing products and the lineups. Whether the Honor 20 lineup will come under an “existing device” remains a question.
