Huawei has finally unveiled the Huawei Honor V20. In a teaser trailer posted today by the Chinese manufacturer, Huawei has completely blown off some bells and whistles as we head into 2018.
Huawei’s Honor V20 Is Honor’s Take To Compete With the OnePlus 6 & Xiaomi Mi 8
The new trailer released for the Huawei Honor V20 reveals a ton of goodies regarding the Huawei Honor V20. Beginning with the specs, the Huawei Honor V20 would feature Huawei’s latest and greatest Kirin 980 SoC, a 6.4-inch FHD+ display, a 4000mAh battery, up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. In addition to that, Huawei is continuing to push its punch-hole camera design with the V20 following the release of the Huawei Nova 4. Here, with the V20, we get to see a 25MP sensor up front, while the real two camera sensors consist of a 48MP IMX 586 and a 3D ToF camera sensor for some excellent depth mapping, similar to what we see on the new iPhones.
Being a Huawei device, Huawei has also made sure that they include their take on improving the overall experience too. With the Huawei Honor V20, we continue to see Huawei pushing their GPU Turbo 2.0 technology along with a few WiFi and vapor-chamber cooling improvements. In addition to that, we get to see Huawei’s usual AI tweaks along with an enthusiastic push for AR applications.
Huawei Honor V20’s Storage/RAM variants & Color Options
The device is said to come in three colors as well as three storage and RAM variants. Beginning with the colors available for the device, the Huawei Honor V20 does come in Charm Blue, Charm Red and Midnight Black, each of these devices featuring an aurora back with a V-like pattern as light shimmers onto its back.
Regarding the storage and RAM variants available with the device, it seems like Huawei would be releasing these devices in three flavors. The base variant of the device features 6GB of memory paired with 128GB of internal storage. However, if you do plan to bump that up, there are two more options you’ve got here. The next variant features 8GB of memory paired with 128GB of internal storage while the last variant, in partnership with MOSCHINO, features 8GB of memory along with 256GB of internal storage.
Huawei Honor V20 – Pricing & Availability
What’s worth mentioning though is the fact that the Huawei Honor V20 lacks an under-display fingerprint sensor while Huawei continues to keep that as an exclusive with their Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. Furthermore, while we have seen the device in its entirety throughout the past week or two, the Huawei Honor V20 would not be arriving in international markets before 2019 begins. Huawei has announced that the device would begin retailing today, while the international debut of the device has been set for January the 22nd in Paris, next year.
Based on Chinese listings, the base variant of the device is said to retail for CNY 3000 (US $437). While the 8GB/128GB variant would retail for CNY 3499 (US $509). Pricing regarding the MOSCHINO variant does seem to be unavailable at the moment. However, we’d speculate that the variant would cost no more than CNY 4000 (US $582).
