Honor, the sub-brand of Huawei, has today announced that it will launch the all-new Honor 20 Series of smartphones in London. The launch will take place at an event on May 21 and will mark the global launch of the Honor 20 Series. Apparently, the company is set to launch the first smartphone in the Honor 20 Series, the Honor 20i, in China, on April 17.
The all-new Honor 20 Series will be the successor to the last year’s Honor 10 Series. As mentioned in the tweet, the company is marketing the device using the hashtag “#CAPTUREWONDER”, which puts light on the fact that the company is focussed on delivering a much better camera in the smartphone to compete with other players in the industry. In addition to putting out a tweet, Honor has also announced the launch of the Honor 20 Series on its website.

With the Honor 20 Series coming up, we can expect the company to introduce the Honor 20, Honor 20i, and Honor 20 Pro smartphones, similar to its Honor 10 Series lineup. Additionally, the Honor 20 can be expected to be a flagship smartphone with top of the line HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC, triple rear cameras (48MP + 20MP + 8MP) on the rear. It would be interesting to see if Honor sticks with a notch to hold the camera or gets rid of it completely by adopting the pop-up front-facing camera.
In the past couple of weeks, the Honor 20 has been leaked and tipped to sport a 6.1-inch display, in-display fingerprint sensor, HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC, 6GB or 8GB of RAM and128GB or 256GB of internal storage to choose from. In addition to Honor 20, the company is set to launch the Honor 20i on Wednesday, i.e April 17, in China, which might include a 6.2-inch full-HD+ display, HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.
In related news, rumors indicate a May 14th launch for the OnePlus 7, which will be the primary competitor to Honor 20. Let’s wait and watch.
