Honor is so confident about its new Honor 20 series of smartphones that it’s gone and signed up Fortnite devotee, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder and soon-to-be Champions League winner Dele Alli as an ambassador. Both the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro sport a 6.26in display with a 91.7% screen-to-body ratio and a small punch hole camera cutout. A side-mounted fingerprint sensor grants you speedy access, while Huawei’s flagship Kirin 980 chipset makes everything go fast. Both devices sport a quad rear camera setup, led by Sony’s 48MP IMX 586 sensor. You also get a 16MP wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro camera and an 8MP telephoto, although the latter is swapped for a 2MP depth-sensing camera on the regular Honor 20. The front camera is 32MP on both. The Honor 20 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage will cost £400 when it launches, while the Honor 20 Pro with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage will be €599. But given this week’s news about parent company Huawei’s imminent Android restrictions, some caution is advised.
