The Honor View 20 has seemingly been a runaway hit for Honor so much so that the company may be prepping a follow-up device possibly with even better cameras. Rumour has it that Honor is working on a triple rear camera phone called the Honor 20 Pro and that it is looking to launch it as early as April 25.
Speaking of specs, the purported Honor 20 Pro is said to come with a 6.1-inch OLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner. The processor inside is said to be Huawei’s top-tier Kirin 980 paired with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage.
Cameras are said to be the main highlight of the Honor 20 Pro – it is said to come with a triple rear camera setup with a 40MP main camera, alongside a 20MP ultra-wide and 8MP telephoto camera.
The Honor View 20 features an “industry-first 48MP rear camera with Sony IMX586 sensor” which when coupled with “the AI computing power and graphic processing power enabled by the dual-ISP and dual-NPU of Kirin 980 chipset, will automatically perform multi-frame image processing to create high-definition images.” Xiaomi recently undercut Honor by launching the Redmi Note 7 Pro with the same sensor at a fraction of a cost of the Honor View 20 though.
Regardless, the Honor View 20 was the first phone to spark the megapixel debate and Huawei’s P30 Pro easily has the most megapixels than any other phone in the market. The Honor 20 Pro is said to have the same primary sensor as the Huawei P30 Pro, so that’s a lot to look forward to considering Honor phones are more affordable than their Huawei counterparts.
The Honor 20 Pro will reportedly be available in three configurations - 6/128 GB, 8/128 GB, and 8/256 GB with prices starting at CNY 2,999 which roughly translates to Rs 31,000.
The Honor View 20 currently sells in India at a starting price of Rs 37,999.
