Honor is expected to come out with two new smartphones by the end of this month. These phones will reportedly be called the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro. A Pro variant of last year’s Honor 10 (review) did not exist, leaving us to wonder whether the Huawei sub-brand wanted to change things up and skip on a Lite variant this time around. As it turns out, a new report has emerged that suggests a Lite model will indeed make its way to the market this year. This phone is aptly being referred to as the Honor 20 Lite and leaked renders reveal how it will share some key aspects with its pricier counterparts.
At least two color variants of the Honor 20 Lite will allegedly be offered. The first is a plain Black model while the other bears an Aurora gradient design. The renders reveal a triple camera setup stacked vertically at the top left corner of the back of the phone. An LED flash is placed just underneath. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner on this phone. As for the front, we see a large, slim-bezel display with a waterdrop style notch at the top. A power button and volume rockers are situated on the right side of the phone. Meanwhile, a headphone jack, microUSB charging port, and loudspeaker appear to be housed at the bottom.
Honor 20 Lite Leaked Specifications, Price
Along with the renders, the internal specifications of the phone have also leaked. As per reports, the Honor 20 Lite will offer a 6.21-inch IPS LCD screen with a 2340 x 1080 pixel resolution that manages to achieve a pixel density of 415 ppi. The phone will make use of a HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC. This will be paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Storage is said to be expandable with the use of a microSD card.
Coming to the triple camera setup at the back, the primary sensor will be comprised of a 24MP camera with an f/1.8 aperture. This will be paired with an 8MP 120-degree ultra-wide sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the phone gets a 32MP front-facing shooter with an f/2.0 aperture. As is the case with all Honor phones, the Honor 20 Lite will offer a bunch of AI-assisted modes and features.
The Honor 20 Lite will arrive with Android 9.0 Pie with Huawei’s EMUI skin running on top. The phone sips juice from a 3400mAh cell that still charges over the old microUSB standard. The phone is said to measure 7.95mm thick and weigh in at 164 grams. For connectivity, the 20 Lite offers dual-Band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Considering the Honor 20 Lite shares similar specifications as the upcoming Honor 10i, its price is expected to be about the same at around 280 euros (INR 20,000 approx.).
