The Honor 20 Pro was announced today at a special event. On paper, the Honor 20 Pro specifications are great but read on to know more! This smartphone comes with a lot of industry-first features and the first smartphone to sport an f/1.4 aperture on a mobile camera. That means that people would get much better low light photos and great shallow depth of field. This smartphone also packs in a lot of high-end hardware and doesn’t compromise on the feature set.
With the current Huawei vs U.S government lockdown situation, it’s really tough to say what would the future of Huawei and Honor be in the international markets. But still needless to say they have come out with a great product as of now!
Honor 20 Pro specs and Honor 20 details:
Today Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro were announced in London. The pricing for the Honor 20 6GB/128GB variant was set at 499 euros which is roughly around INR 39K. Honor 20 Pro 8GB/256GB variant would be around 599 euros, which is around INR 47K.
The Honor 20 smartphones come with a new wave design concept and would come in three classic colours: Mirage Blue, Magic Night Black and Iceland white colours.

The Honor 20 series would also come with a three-layer back shell design with a glass layer, a layer for colour and a layer for depth. This enables it to give some really different gradient style design. And we also get some really different colour options emitting from the insides of the phone.

Honor 20 Pro details and other Honor 20 features
With all of its photography enhancements, the device still manages to pack in an impressive performance with the Kirin 980 chipset and fast storage. It has a 4000 mAh battery. The Honor 20 series also supports the latest graphics processing acceleration technology – GPU Turbo 3.0, which can achieve near full frame performance in a variety of mobile games, even more when compared to the iPhone XS Max and Samsung S10+.
In June last year, Huawei first revealed the revolutionary graphics processing acceleration technology called GPU Turbo. The technology through the optimization and coordination of software and hardware improved the EMUI operating system and the processing bottleneck between the GPU and the CPU. They reconstructed the traditional graphics processing framework at the bottom of the system and achieved the software and hardware coordination. The graphics processing efficiency of the mobile phone has greatly improved, and the power consumption is reduced.
Honor 20 Pro GPU Turbo support
In addition to pushing the performance of graphics acceleration technology to the extreme, the number of games supported and covered by GPU Turbo 3.0 has further expanded. A total of 60 Chinese games and 25 worldwide games are supported.
It is reported that this time thanks to the addition of GPU Turbo 3.0, the Honor 20 series will cover more mainstream games, in addition to the original 12+ games and other Chinese games, there have been additions for FortNite, PES2019 and 19 games including NBA2K19 and Real Racing 3.
In addition to all these Fortnite players would also get a customized exclusive skin outfit for the Honor 20 series. This was also done during the Honor V20 launch.
So guys what do you think? Would the final price for the Honor 20 be the same as before? Or will Honor be able to keep the pricing somewhat lower in India and make the device more competitive? Only time can answer this question as of now! So let’s just wait and watch!
