    Huawei's Honor 20 Offers Powerful Camera, Premium Specs for Less





    Huawei's Honor brand is launching a pair of smartphones with cutting-edge specs for less than $1,000, but good luck on finding them in the US.
    The timing couldn't be worse for the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro. On Tuesday, the company touted both devices as Huawei's whole business has been ensnared in the US-China trade war. The Trump administration is not only preventing US mobile carriers from buying telecommunications gear from Huawei, but also cutting off the Chinese company's access to Qualcomm chips and Google's Android software.
    So don't expect the flagship devices to officially arrive in the US any time soon. For now, the Honor 20 is launching in Europe and other parts of the world for 499 Euros ($556) while the Honor 20 Pro is going for 599 Euros ($668).

    The pricing is a good deal for what you get. Both phones feature a 6.26-inch full HD+ display that covers most of the device. They've also been fitted inside a curved glass casing that gives off a snazzy premium feel.
    The other big selling point is the quad-camera setup on the back. The 48-megapixel f/1.8 main lens on the Honor 20 promises to capture clear images even at night with the help of AI-powered algorithms, while the second 16MP lens is designed for ultra wide-angle shots.

    The third lens can produce the blurred background bokeh effect on photos, while the remaining fourth lens is for close-up shots. The Honor 20 Pro upgrades the quad-camera setup with a 48MP f/1.4 lens, and a telephoto lens that has a 3x lossless optical zoom and 30x digital zoom.

    As for the front-facing camera, it functions via a 4.5mm hole punch in the phones' displays and uses a 32MP lens f/2.0 lens.
    Inside both phones is a 7nm Kirin 980 chip, which is found in Huawei's other, higher-priced flagship device the P30, so you can expect some excellent performance. The Honor 20 starts with 6GB of RAM, 128GB in storage, and a 3,750mAh battery. The 20 Pro, on the other hand, will come with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and 4,000 mAh battery.
    Due to the lower pricing, you won't find wireless charging, 5G connectivity, or waterproof casing with either device. Another missing feature is a headphone jack. However, the phones do come with a fingerprint sensor, which has been mounted on the side of each device.
    Despite the US's attempts to hamper Huawei's business, the Chinese company says "nothing has changed" for its Honor sub-brand. "Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally," the vendor said in a statement.
    For consumers looking for a more affordable smartphone, Huawei last month unveiled the Honor 20 Lite model. It goes for 299 Euros ($334), but downgrades the quad-camera setup to three lenses, has only 4GB of RAM, a less powerful processor, and a teardrop notch at the top of the screen for the front-facing camera.
