Honor 20 Lite launched with notch display, 32MP selfie camera, triple rear cameras, and Kirin 710 SoC
Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has a mega event lined up for May 21 to unveil the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro smartphones. But prior to that, the Chinese brand has launched the Honor 20 Lite which is a mid-range smartphone slotted into the upcoming 20-series.
The Honor 20 Lite has initially been launched in Malaysia and is already available to purchase at RM949 (Approx. INR15,900) price tag. The smartphone will go on sale in the UK on May 15 priced at GBP249 (Approx. INR22,500) before expanding to other markets. It is offered in Midnight Blue, Phantom Blue, and Phantom Red paint jobs.
The Honor 20 Lite is the successor to the Honor 10 Lite that was launched in November last year. The Honor 20 Lite is largely the same as the Honor 10 Lite in many aspects except the camera capabilities. The new smartphone comes with 32MP selfie camera and triple rear cameras along with a dew-drop notch display and more.
Regarding specifications, the Honor 20 Lite sports a 6.21-inch 1080×2340 HD+ display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 415ppi brightness. Pumping power from under the hood is a 12nm octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC coupled with Mali-G51 MP4 GPU, 4GB RAM, and 128GB internal storage, which is further expandable up to 512GB via microSD card.
- Honor 8S launched with dew-drop notch, Android Pie, Helio A22 SoC, and 3,020mAh battery
- Honor 20i launches with 32MP selfie camera, triple-rear cameras, and Kirin 710 SoC
- Honor 8A Pro launched with HD+ display, Android Pie, and Helio P35 SoC
Unlike the dual-rear-camera setup on the Honor 10 Lite, the Honor 20 Lite mounts a triple-rear-camera module at the back stacked in a vertical layout, equipped with LED flash. The camera array includes a 24MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP secondary 180-degree ultra-wide-angle sensor with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. For the selfie buffs, the Honor 20 Lite tacks on a 32MP (versus 24MP of Honor 10 Lite) selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture.
The dual-SIM (Nano) smartphone runs the latest Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box with EMUI 9.0 layered on top. The device is backed by a 3,400mAh battery but lacks the fast charging facility. For the biometric authentication, the Honor 20 Lite sports a circular rear-mounted fingerprint scanner as well as Facial recognition via selfie camera.
The Honor 20 Lite supports 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, and micro-USB 2.0 in terms of standard connectivity options. It weighs 164 grams and measures 154.8×73.64×7.95mm in dimension.
The Honor 20 Lite is confirmed to hit the Indian market but when that is still not revealed. However, we guess it will arrive soon coinciding the launch of the device in the other European and South East Asian markets post-May 15. The Indian price of the Honor 20 Lite is believed to be in the same ballpark as in Malaysia.
