Honor 20 Pro Gets Approval For Google Play; May Be Released As Nova 5T Pro

Likely the Honor 20 series will be released as a Huawei device in certain markets

The Honor 20 Pro is set to launch very soon, and with the trade wars still ongoing, there's been speculation that the Honor 20 Pro can't go on sale as they ahd yet to secure certifications for Google Mobile Services. Well, it looks like the device has been included under the Google Play Certified Devices list and may even be released as the Nova 5T Pro.

This was discovered by XDA Developers who checked the Google Play supported device page where they downloaded a list of devices that have passed certification. They discovered an entry for the Honor 20 Pro and also found something interesting; the Honor 20 Pro is also certified as the Nova 5T Pro while the standard Honor 20 is also known as the Nova 5T.

This likely means that the Honor 20 series will be released as a Huawei branded device in certain markets, though it hasn't been stated where yet. So far since May 18t 2019, the only other Huawei or Honor device to have been certified to use Google Play has been the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019.

The Honor 20 standard model is currently priced at MYR 1,699 which likely means the Pro model could be priced under MYR 2,000 once it launches here. Although it shares the same display and processor, the Honor 20 Pro gets a better quad-camera setup that boasts a DxOMark Mobile score of 111. It also features a 48MP main camera using Sony’s IMX586 sensor but it boasts a faster f/1.4 aperture lens. The device also gets a 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera as well as an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto camera that can push 3X optical zoom. It will also retain a 2MP camera for macro shots.
