A leak from China offers us what would be our first glimpse of Honor 20, the brand's future high-end, accompanied by part of its technical sheet.
Honor 10, for illustration
The year 2019 is well started! The Mobile World Congress 2019 has already allowed us to discover new smartphones, and the coming weeks should allow us to discover more and more … as a bonus to test them of course.
As Huawei prepares his own event to unveil the Huawei P30 Pro and P30 in Paris on March 26, his little brother Honor should soon follow him. After the Huawei View 20 in early 2019, it's time to discover the Honor 20.
First rendering of Honor 20
A new leak on the Chinese social network Weibo, spotted by GSM Arena, claims to know a lot of information on the future high-end phone of the brand. To begin, he reveals a first rendering of the Honor 20.
All this remains to be done with tweezers, but the design seems consistent. Honor smartphones tend to get quite a lot from their Huawei brothers, and this Honor 20 seems to be going in the same direction as the future Huawei P30 Pro and P30. However, it lacks the usual colorful touch of the brand focused on youth in Europe.
Assumed Fact Sheet of Honor 20
The leak also claims to know the technical data sheet of the device. The Honor 20 would be equipped as follows:
Screen: 6.1 inches OLED
SoC: Kirin 980
RAM: 6 to 8 GB
Rear photo sensor: 48 megapixels + 20 megapixels + 8 megapixels
Front camera sensor: 32 megapixels
Storage: 128 or 256 GB
Features: Gaming +, Turbo Link, Turbo CPU, Turbo GPU
If this one is not extravagant in itself, the source pretends to know the future score DxOMark of the smartphone: 108. A score which would place it just after the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the Galaxy S10 +.
Huawei, and by extension Honor, has accustomed us on his last presentations to offer us his results DxOMark upon announcement, suggesting an agreement with the site used as a benchmark. However, a test was performed by the Parisian company so early before the announcement of the official presentation of Honor 20 leaves us skeptical.
This is a possibility, but we remain suspicious: this information should be taken with tweezers while waiting for other sources or official confirmation.
