Honor has finally revealed the launch date for its Honor 20 series. The new lineup will be unveiled on May 21, 2019, in the UK. It marks the global launch of the Honor 20 series including the Honor 20, Honor 20 Pro, and the Honor 20 Lite. To tease the launch, Honor took a rather cryptic route that required mathematical abilities to unravel the launch date. The Honor 20 series will be made official in London.
Honor 20, Honor 20 Pro and Honor 20 Lite Global Launch, Cryptic Hints For Quad Cameras?
In the launch poster, the date was written as “444+4x4x4+(4+4)/4+44/4” that sums to 521, i.e. 21st of the fifth month – May 21, 2019. Besides, the dominance of the number four in the cryptic sum hints at the quad-camera setup on the Honor 20 similar to the Huawei P30 Pro. In contrast to the previous rumors that the Honor 20 would feature a triple rear camera setup, the latest teaser suggests otherwise. Also, the hashtag ‘#capturewonder’ accompanying the teaser image implies that the Honor 20 is a camera-centric smartphone.
Huawei is known for lending its flagship technologies to the top-end phones from its sub-brand Honor. We won’t be surprised if the Honor 20 tries to match up to the Huawei P30 Pro in some aspects. Another meaning that can be derived from the over-compensating emphasis on the number four could be the launch of not three but four new smartphones in the Honor 20 series including a 5G-equipped variant. However, the first meaning hinting at four cameras seems more credible.
Honor 20 Pro, Honor 20 Lite Rumored Specs, Honor 20i To Launch Soon
Concerning the rumored specs of the Honor 20 Pro, the phone is going to be the flagship-level among the other phones in the series. It is rumored to come with a 6.1-inch Full HD+ OLED display paired with a dewdrop notch. A HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor with Mali G76 GPU and 8GB of RAM is expected to power the device. Before the latest launch teaser came along, the rumors were abuzz that there would be a 48MP+20MP+8MP triple camera setup on the rear alongside a 32MP selfie shooter on the front. However, now we may end up witnessing a quad-camera setup on the rear. A 3,650mAh battery geared with 22.5W SuperCharge fast-charging adapter might back the Honor 20 Pro.
The Honor 20 Lite is rumored to feature a 24MP+8MP+2MP triple camera setup on the rear along with a 32MP selfie shooter on the front. Similar to the Honor 20 Pro, the Honor 20 Lite will also have a fullHD+ display coupled with a dewdrop notch housing the front camera. It is expected to come with a 3,400mAh battery with fast-charging support.
In another news, Honor is expected to launch the Honor 20i in Beijing on April 17, 2019. The Honor 20i is rumored to feature a 6.21-inch Full HD+ display with a dewdrop notch, 32MP selfie camera, and Kirin 710 processor.
