Honor 20 now in Malaysia

Honor 20 Blue

Move aside, OnePlus 7, here’s the new flagship smartphone killer. Fresh from this global launch in London on Tuesday, the Honor 20 series has set afoot on Malaysian shores. The regular Honor 20 makes a debut first, while the Honor 20 Pro will be made available at a later date.

Launched at the glitzy W Hotel, the Honor 20 will retail at a price of MYR1,699. This is substantially lower than its EUR499 (~MYR2,324) price tag; not exactly unexpected.

The device will be available in two colour options: Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black.

The official sale date has yet to be revealed and one wonders if this has anything to do with Huawei’s spate with the US government. Honor did say its new flagship smartphone series will go on sale very soon.

When it hits the shelves, the Honor 20 will come bundled with an Honor backpack, Honor Soundstone Bluetooth speaker and an Honor Band 4 worth MYR500.

The Honor 20 is the affordable alternative to the Honor 20 Pro. It features the same 6.26-inch Full HD+ display with a punch-hole, and powered by the Kirin 980 processor. It comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.

Honor 20 Camera

It gets a quad-camera setup like its more expensive sibling, but with slight variations. There’s a main 48MP IMX586 sensor coupled with an f/1.8 aperture lens; 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera; 2MP macro shooter; and a 2MP depth sensor.
