Honor has confirmed the launch of two new smartphones for its two different series next year. The devices in question are Honor 11 and the Honor V20. When asked about the updates on Honor V20, company President Zhao Ming said, “it’s a big trick”. Whereas, in response to the release of Honor 11, he rhetorically confirmed. These responses strongly suggest that the Honor 11 will be launched sometime next year, while the V20 is still in works.
The Honor V20 was speculated to arrive in November, this year. However, the release of the Honor Magic 2 pushed back the launch as the smartphone is still in the final stages of development.
Honor 11 to Release in the First Half of Next Year
Honor has managed to keep the all developmental works regarding the Honor 11 well under the wraps. There have been no leaks or rumors regarding this Honor smartphone. When asked about the existence, Zhao Ming confirmed the release of this device in the first half of 2019. We are expecting to see both Honor 11 and the Honor V20 to launch within a close proximity of time. We don’t know anything about the specifications of the Honor 11, but we do have a fair idea of what to expect from the Honor V20. Looking at the recently launched smartphones from the company, we are expecting that the Honor 11 will reflect a different design approach. As for the hardware, it only makes sense that the smartphone will be powered by Kirin 980 processor. That is all we have on Honor 11 so far and we also have a lot of time before the device comes out. So, we can expect some leaks and renders before the device goes official.
What Do We Know About The Honor V20 So Far?
From the leaks, renders, and expectations, we have a fair idea of what Honor V20 is going to look like. The earlier rumors suggested that the Honor V20 would sport a new design, somewhat inspired by the Vivo Nex. However, the latest development suggests that the smartphone is traditionally designed. According to rumors, the smartphone is likely to sport a waterdrop notch at the top and unlike the Honor Magic 2, the selfie camera is fixed conventionally on the front. The Honor V20 is expected to sport an IPS LCD display with a Full HD+ resolution and a large aspect ratio. Under the hood, the smartphone will be powered by the latest Kirin 980 processor. In terms of memory, the Honor V20 is expected to be offered in two configurations: one with 6GB RAM and the other with 8GB RAM.
In the imaging department, the Honor handset will reportedly flaunt a triple camera setup, likey comprising a 16MP + 24MP + 16MP combination. This is the same setup we see on the Honor Magic 2. On the front, the smartphone is rumored to feature a 25MP camera for selfie and video calling. The battery capacity of the smartphone is still unknown but it is expected to come with a fast charging option. As for software, the Honor V20 will most likely ship with the latest Android 9 Pie. The smartphone is also expected to come with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Like mentioned earlier, the Honor V20 is in the final stages of development, but we might just see the official smartphone before Honor 11. The devices will go official in China first, let’s see when they arrive in the Indian market.
