Huawei sub-brand Honor has sent out invites for its Honor 20 series launch that is slated to take place in London on May 21. The new lineup from Honor is expected to feature at least two new smartphones, Honor 20 and Honor 20 Lite, however, a clue in the invitation suggests that there might be more products.
The invite shows side-by-side images of London’s Tower Bridge in low-light and the hashtag #CaptureWonder. By the looks of the invitation, it seems Honor will be focusing on camera capabilities with the Honor 20 series, as the company has recently been doing with most of its flagships.
While it is very apparent with the smartphone enthusiast, Honor has noted that the image on the invitation is for illustration purpose only–likely a response to Honor’s parent company Huawei being involved in allegedly misleading consumers with its photographs.
The launch date on the bottom left of the invite reads “444+4*4*4+(4+4)/4+44/4”, which generates the number 521 i.e, May 21. Nevertheless, there may be more to those numbers than the date alone. The repeated use of number 4 indicates that Honor has planned something that relates to it; perhaps the Honor 20 would feature a quad-camera setup or the company will release four new smartphones. There could be an Honor 20 Pro and Honor 20 Pro 5G model as well.
A company launching four new devices at a single launch event would not be an unprecedented instance, since Samsung, in February, launched four new Galaxy S10 devices including Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10e, and Galaxy S10 5G.
In terms of specifications, there are not many details regarding the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Lite. According to the leaks, Honor 20 is said to be coming with a triple camera setup with a 48-megapixel primary sensor, 20MP secondary sensor, and an 8MP tertiary camera, as well as a 32MP camera up front.
Moreover, it is tipped to be powered by Kirin 980 SoC, coupled with 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB or 256GB of onboard storage. The battery on the device is said to be 3,650mAh. There are also speculations that the Honor 20 would include an in-display fingerprint scanner.
As for the Honor 20 Lite, the rumors suggest that the smartphone would basically be the Huawei P30 Lite with a micro-USB port rather than a USB-C port.
