Honor 20 Pro Hands-on: Quad Cameras, Beautiful Design

Honor 20 Pro Hands-on: Quad Cameras, Beautiful Design

The Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro were announced earlier today. This is Honor’s big push into the 2019 budget flagship space, which is becoming quite crowded. These devices have all the features you’d expect in a flagship, but a few key sacrifices to keep costs down as well. XDA TV’s TK Bay shared his first impressions of the Pro model.

The Honor 20 Pro isn’t using a fancy pop-up camera or swivel mechanism. This is just the good ‘ol hole punch display again. This is a very attractive device and one thing that catches your eye is the rear camera setup. The device has 5 cameras in total, four of them on the back. They are used for wide-angle, telephoto, macro, and “regular shots.” The main lens is the 48MP Sony IMX 586. Check out TK’s video below to see a bunch of sample shots from the cameras.
