More info regarding the HONOR 20 and HONOR 20 Pro camera sensor surfaced, and in addition to that, HONOR also officially announced that a special edition HONOR 20 Pro model is coming.
HONOR 20 (Pro) cameras modeled after HONOR View20 & Huawei P30 Pro, kind of
Let’s focus on the camera info first, shall we. This information comes from a Twitter user called “Teme”, as he claims that the HONOR 20 will utilize a custom IMX586 sensor, while the HONOR 20 Pro will ship with the IMX600 sensor on the back.
The custom IMX586 sensor is developed by both Huawei and Sony, the source notes, and that is a 48-megapixel unit that is already included on the HONOR View20. We’re looking at a sensor with a RYYB pixel layout here, though, which is actually the same pixel layout that Huawei used for the Huawei P30 Pro.
Just to be clear, the HONOR View20 uses a Quad-Bayer RGB pattern like the P20 Pro, not the RYYB setup from the P30 Pro. The HONOR View20 has a truly great camera, even by today’s standards, and based on this info, the HONOR 20 could be even better in that regard.
Now, in regards to the HONOR 30 Pro, that phone will include Sony’s IMX600 sensor, which is used in the Huawei P30 Pro, but it will include a regular RGGB pixel layout, not the RYYB setup as the Huawei P30 Pro. It will be interesting to see the comparison between the HONOR 20 and HONOR 20 Pro cameras, if this info ends up being accurate.
HONOR 20 series Moschino Edition handset confirmed
HONOR has announced today that a special edition Moschino HONOR 20 series handset will be coming as well. HONOR actually partnered up with Moschino, a fashion brand, earlier this year, when the two companies released a special edition HONOR View20 handset. Well, it seems like the history will repeat itself, but this time around, the HONOR 20 (Pro) will be the star of the show.
This upcoming phone will ship with Moschino themes, and will come with a special edition phone case, that will be made just for the device. The phone will come with different backplate, and it will come in a custom box as well.
The company did not say whether this phone will be based on the HONOR 20 or the HONOR 20 Pro, but we’re assuming that the HONOR 20 Pro Moschino Edition is on the way, as that variant of the phone will be more powerful.
Chances are that this special edition device will be identical to the regular model, save for Moschino’s themes, and the color / design of the back cover. Specifications and general design of the device will remain intact, same as with the HONOR View20 Moschino Edition.
The HONOR 20 series is scheduled to arrive on May 21, a week after the OnePlus 7. We’re mentioning the OnePlus 7 here because these devices will compete head-to-head in the market, at least they’re expected to. We still do not know the exact price tags of all of these devices, so OnePlus’ offerings may be more expensive than what HONOR has to offer, but they’ll all be flagship-grade devices.
