The Honor V20 (PCT-AL10) listing on Geekbench confirms the upcoming smartphone will be powered by a 7nm Kirin 980 octa-core processor under the hood. Huawei Nova 4, on the other hand, runs on the now outdated Kirin 970 chipset instead. Honor V20 will be the brand’s second smartphone to run on the Kirin 980. Honor’s first smartphone to run on the Kirin 980 SoC, the Honor Magic 2 was released in China last month.

Both the scores are on par with what the Huawei Mate 20 Pro achieves in the same tests.
According to rumors, the Honor V20 will feature an identical 6.4-inch sized display with 1080 x 2310 pixels Full HD+ resolution. Housed within the tiny hole on the top left corner of the display will be a 25MP resolution selfie snapper. At the rear, Honor V20 is expected to sport a triple-camera setup with a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 main sensor. Keeping the lights on will be a large 4000mAh capacity battery with 22.5W fast charging support. While the Honor V20 will debut in China on December 26, Honor will be unveiling the global variant of the smartphone at an event in Paris on January 22. The global variant will be dubbed Honor View 20 and will succeed the Honor View 10.
