Huawei offshoot brand Honor has launched the affordable mid-range Honor 20 Lite phone in select markets – a global reveal is expected on May 21. The Honor 20 Lite shares many features with the Honor 10 Lite but packs seemingly better cameras – triple rear cameras and a 32MP selfie shooter.
The Honor 20 Lite comes with Huawei and Honor’s signature gradient finish design – the phone will be available in as many as three colour options including Phantom Red, Phantom Blue, and Midnight Blue. There’s a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a micro-USB port for charging and data syncing on-board the device.
Speaking of specs, the Honor 20 Lite comes with a 6.21-inch 1080p+ display with a dewdrop-style notch. The processor inside is a Kirin 710 paired with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage which is also expandable. The dual-SIM phone runs Android Pie-based EMUI 9 and has a 3,400mAh battery under the hood.
On to the optics, the Honor 20 Lite comes with three rear cameras consisting of one 24MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor with 120-degree field-of-view and a 2MP camera for depth sensing aka portrait photography. On the front, the Honor 20 Lite comes with a 32MP camera.
Honor has launched the Honor 20 Lite in Malaysia for a price of RM 949 which roughly translates to Rs 15,900. There's no word when (and if) Honor will launch the Honor 20 Lite in India. The Honor 10 Lite is currently available in India at a starting price of Rs 13,999.
Honor is gearing for a global launch event scheduled to take place in London on May 21 where it will launch its new Honor 20-series. Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro are expected – Honor may also announce global availability of the Honor 20 Lite at the said event.
Basis of an image shared by Honor, it’s almost certain, that the Honor 20-series will focus a great deal on photography – especially low light photography. The Honor 20 Lite also looks like a capable camera phone, at least on paper.
