The Honor 20 series recently received a new member in China just some days back with the introduction of the Honor 20 Lite (Youth Edition). However, it seems Honor has a new colour variant to introduce on November 1st to the series. A new teaser poster shared today by the company’s official Weibo handle shows the shade to be Orange. There’s also a leaked render of the alleged phone with the paint job that will be official in a couple of days. It seems Huawei has taken some inspiration from Google this time around but I hope they don’t just call it “Oh So Orange”.
Now, we believe the new colour will be introduced for the new Honor 20 Lite (Youth Edition) itself. For now, it is being offered in some eye-catching gradients such as Magic Night Black, Blue Water Jade and Icelandic Fantasy. There is also speculation that suggests the new paint coat will be for the Honor 20S launched in September, not the Honor 20 Youth Edition of China. Either way, the new model is coming on first thing in November.
In terms of specifications, the Honor 20 Youth Edition comes with a 6.3-inch Full-HD+ TUV Rheinland certified AMOLED display. It has an in-display fingerprint reader and supports DCI-P3 wide colour gamut. The Kirin 710F SoC is at the heart of the device and is assisted with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There’s a 48MP + 8MP + 2MP triple camera combo on the glass material rear and the package is powered by a 4,000mAh battery that carries support for 22.5W rapid charging.
On the software front, the Honor 20 (Youth Edition) runs EMUI 9.1.1 based Android 9 Pie OS. Its starting price is 1,399 Yuan (~$198) for the base model and we don’t expect the new colour shade to be priced any higher.
