The Huawei / Honor alliance against Samsung and Apple is gaining momentum, where the subbrand of the Chinese company plays a minor role on the background of the parent brand, but it will also actively participate in “eating off” the share of competitors. And for buyers, this means the emergence of new models, among which there is a place Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro. Today, details about the characteristics, cost and time of release of these models.
So, according to insiders, the premiere of smartphones will be held on April 25. Among the similar features of the Honor 20 and its Pro-version is the proprietary chipset Kirin 980, a battery with a capacity of 3650 mAh, fast charging with a capacity of 22.5 W, a USB Type-C port, CPU and GPU Turbo technologies, Link Turbo and a front 32 MP camera. The basic version of the flagship will be awarded a 6.1-inch OLED-panel and this will be a matrix with a drop-shaped notch. Honor 20 Pro will get the same type of screen, but the size of the diagonal should be larger. As for the main cameras of smartphones, then the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro followed the path. So, Honor 20 will offer a system of three 48 megapixel (main) + 20 megapixel (wide-angle) + 8 megapixel sensors (telephoto lens, 3x zoom). The Honor 20 Pro smartphone will receive an additional fourth sensor, and the Sony IMX600 module with 40 megapixels will be the key. Honor 20 will be released in three versions: 6/128 GB – $ 446, 8/128 GB – $ 505 and 8/256 GB – $ 565.
Huawei P20 smartphone lineup gets a serious update
At present, there is very tough competition in China in literally all sectors of the market, including smartphones. This, of course, plays into the hands of end consumers, because manufacturers are forced to ensure the proper quality and further support of their devices. For Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo are real competitors, not to mention non-Chinese heavyweights such as Samsung and Apple, so they must regularly prove all the advantages of choosing their products.
Today, the guys from Huawei officially announced that they have already begun to actively distribute the EMUI update for their line of P20 smartphones. Along with the update, smartphones will receive support for full-screen gestures, as well as acquire the latest version of GPU Turbo graphics acceleration technology. In the future, this should have a beneficial effect on the overall performance in games, minimize FPS drawdowns, and also significantly improve the autonomy of devices at times of maximum processor load.
Note that in speaking of P20 smartphones, in its advertising posters, Huawei mentions only the P20 and P20 Pro models, but modestly is silent about the P20 Lite model. This update is distributed gradually and in random order. How fast you get it depends on your luck.
