Huawei sub-brand Honor has started sending out press invites to its upcoming launch event in London, where the company will be introducing its Honor 20 series smartphones. Ahead of the big launch next month, YAL-TL00 and YAL-AL00 variants of the upcoming flagship smartphone from Honor have been certified by China’s 3C.
Honor 20 to Support 22.5W Fast Charging
The 3C certification reveals the Honor 20 will be shipped with the HW-050450C01 power adapter in the box in China, supporting up to 22.5W charging speeds. Aside from the power adapter specifications, however, the 3C certificate offers no other information regarding the upcoming smartphone.
Since Honor 20 is expected to succeed the Honor 10 from last year, it is expected to be a flagship-grade offering, running on a 7nm HiSilicon Kirin 980 octa-core processor. The world’s chipset to be built on a 7nm process technology, Kirin 980 still remains among the most powerful mobile chips on the market. In terms of benchmarking performance, however, it falls behind newer chips such as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 and the Samsung Exynos 9820.
In terms of design, rumors suggest the Honor 20 will have a waterdrop notch display, similar to Huawei’s latest P30 series phones. At the rear, it is speculated to feature a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 primary sensor. For selfies, the phone may feature a 32MP resolution snapper on the front. It is rumored to be available in three memory configurations: 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage.
The Honor 20 will not be the only new smartphone that Honor will unveil in London on May 21. Alongside the flagship Honor 20, we expect to see the Honor 20 Lite and Honor 20i smartphones as well. We may even see a Pro variant of the Honor 20 with an In-display fingerprint sensor.
