It's not exactly a secret that the HONOR 20 flagship series is expected to arrive soon, and now some info regarding the HONOR 20 Pro has surfaced in China. The HONOR 20 Pro is expected to become the most powerful HONOR 20 variants, and the phone's partial specifications have appeared.

According to this info, the HONOR 20 Pro will include Sony's IMX600 sensor on the back, and that will be the phone's main sensor. Sony's IMX600 sensor will result in a 40-megapixel camera on the HONOR 20 Pro, that is the same sensor that was included in the Huawei P30 Pro and Mate 20 Pro. If it ends up sporting the same camera as the P30 Pro, we're looking at a sensor with an f/1.6 aperture, if the Mate 20 Pro ends up being the role model for the HONOR 20 Pro, we'll get a sensor with an f/1.8 aperture lens.

The source also notes that the HONOR 20 Pro may arrive on April 25, and just for the record, that is probably the phone's launch date for China, which means that its global announcement will probably follow in early May. That makes all the sense in the world as the HONOR 10 was announced globally in the same period last year.

The source also notes that the HONOR 20 Pro will ship with a 6.1-inch fullHD+ OLED display, with an in-display fingerprint scanner under it. THat fingerprint scanner will probably be an optical unit, though the source doesn't really mention anything regarding that. The Kirin 980 64-bit octa-core processor will fuel the HONOR 20 Pro, that is the same chip that Huawei included in its Mate 20 and P30 series smartphones, and it had already been utilized by HONOR in the HONOR View20.

The HONOR 20 Pro will arrive in several variants, its 6GB RAM model will ship with 128GB of storage, while its 8GB RAM variant will be available in 128GB and 256GB storage iterations. The phone's secondary and tertiary cameras haven't been mentioned by the source, but it's possible that we may get a 20-megapixel secondary unit, and an 8-megapixel third sensor.

A 3,650mAh battery will be included in the HONOR 20 Pro according to the source, while the phone will support 22.5W fast charging, same as the Huawei P30. GPU Turbo will be included in the package as well, while the three variants that we've mentioned will end up costing 2,999 Yuan ($446), 3,399 Yuan ($506), and 3,799 Yuan ($565), claims the source.

The HONOR 20 Pro will almost certainly ship with Android 9 Pie out of the box, and HONOR's Magic UI 2 Android overlay, same that we've already seen in the HONOR View20. The HONOR 20 Pro will probably be accompanied by the HONOR 20 and HONOR 20 Lite, though we're only guessing at this point. The HONOR 20 Pro is expected to be considerably more affordable than both the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro, as you can see by the aforementioned Chinese price tags.

The HONOR 20 Pro will almost certainly be made out of metal and glass, and it remains to be seen whether it will ship with a display camera hole as the HONOR View20, or a display notch like the Huawei P30 series.
