Outstanding Camera Capabilities
One of the primary factors that contribute to a phone’s success is how well it captures and HONOR 20 aces this department with outstanding camera functionalities. Equipped with an impressive Quad camera setup, HONOR 20 sports a Sony IMX586 sensor of 48-megapixel primary lens at the back and is accompanied by a 16-megapixel super-wide-angle camera. It houses a macro lens of 2 megapixels and an additional lens of 2 megapixels that strengthens the depth-sensing capabilities of a camera. The front flaunts a 32-megapixel selfie snapper which is equipped with AI-enabled features. It makes the device capable of capturing pictures and portraits in different light conditions. When it comes to clicking photos in low light scenarios, this phone is a stunner.
Besides, you get to post your favourite slo-mo videos on social media, the HONOR 20 can shoot slow-motion videos at 960fps (720p). The front notch is almost invisible as this device supports an ultra-small punch-hole for the camera which again adds more to the overall appearance.
Spectacular Design & Colors
Spectacular designs and colors reign the smartphone industry in this day and age and the brands are leaving no stone unturned in bringing new designs to the table. Speaking of the overall appeal, the HONOR 20 packs a handsome 15.9-cm [6.26-inch] Full-View FHD+ Display of 2340x1080p resolution which sports a notch-less narrow bezel design. The Quad-camera setup is stacked vertically at the top left of the back which again renders a premium look. The phone offers a firm grip, allowing you to access multiple apps single-handedly. The slim profile and curved edges add to the elegance while fitting perfectly in the palm. HONOR, this time has opted for a dual-glass design with an added mirror finish at the back which elevates the gradient finish. The device comes in two colors- Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black, both of which are unique with hues of similar shades. The Sapphire Blue variant has a subtle undertone of purple and if you’re looking for a more understated design, go for the graceful black. Speaking of the fingerprint scanner, a side-mounted scanner flaunts a flexible approach and unlocks the phone instantly. Stepping aside from the usual trend, a lightning-fast fingerprint sensor is integrated into the side placement power button for instant unlocking with a single tap. In addition to this, the build quality is impeccable and the exterior is designed to prevent scratches and damages.
Stellar performance & Long Battery Endurance
Well, these may be listed at the end of your phone priorities, but matters the most when it comes to buying a smartphone. One may start drooling over the overall appearance but it’s imperative to pay attention to its performance. Thankfully, you have nothing to lose with this handset since it’s the best combination of style, comfort, and performance.
Powered by the world’s first 7nm mobile chipset Kirin 980 HiAI, the HONOR 20 comes in a single variant 128GB internal storage and 6GB of RAM. Speaking of power, the device runs on a massive 3,750mAh battery with HONOR SuperCharge technology. Well, you need not worry about sending out a quick message before your phone dies. The long battery endurance will keep your phone running on heavy apps for more than 24 hours of rigorous usage and won’t run out on you while you’re on the go. Besides, supercharge technology can go from 1% to 100% real quick.
Coming to the software, the phone runs Magic UI 2.1 based on Android Pie. The software enables some unique features for the users on a simple touch with knuckles. For instance, knocking a screen twice with one knuckle takes a screenshot while tapping twice with two knuckles will start recording for you.

The new UI comes with a wide range of new features and brings an even more seamless experience for users in a highly-integrated way.
