In regards to the rest of this piece, we're going to be focusing on the Honor 20 Pro and the Honor 20. On Tuesday, the company touted both devices as Huawei's whole business has been ensnared in the US-China trade war. In the display department, it features a 6.26-inch Full HD+ display and a claimed 91.7 percent screen to body ratio.

Globally, the Honor 20 series has been priced in the range of 299 to 599 euro but India prices will be unveiled on June 11. Honor has made no secret of the fact it's targeting the youth segment of the smartphone market and it hopes this latest selection will appeal to camera-conscious youngsters on relatively small budgets.

If we talk about key features, both the new HONOR phones feature a punch-hole display, powered by Kirin 980, sport quad rear cameras with a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor and a 32-megapixel in-screen front camera. On the other hand the Honor 20 sports a 48MP primary camera, 16MP Super-Wide angle, 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro lens.

And here's a shot from the phone's 2-MP macro cam. They are Huawei's newest devices, sporting highly performant cameras, following the current trend. The Honor 20 packs-in a 3,750 mAh battery. This masterpiece collection testifies to the excellence of HONOR's N-Series, which is lauded for superior design, unmatched photography capability, and ultimate user experience that resonate with global youth.

It features a similar camera configuration to the Pro model, though the 48MP sensor has a slower f/1.8 aperture and no optical stabilization.

Elsewhere, the Honor 20 Pro comes with a healthy assortment of specs including 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, Kirin 980 processor (the same as what you get in the much more expensive P30 Pro), dual nano-SIM card slots, and a sizable 4,000 mAh battery.

Most of the technical data sheet of Honor 20 and 20 Pro is in common, but obviously, there are some differences: these mainly concern the photographic sector, but they also touch on other details. The company is calling the design on the back their "Dynamic Holographic Design". The phone doesn't have wireless charging and while Honor says it should survive a random splash, it doesn't have an official rating for water-resistance.

In terms storage, the HONOR 20 comes with a hefty 128GB, but alas, there is no microSD card slot to expand the storage. There's no 3.5mm headphone jack, though. The new Honor device is pretty impressive and set to provide stiff competition to the likes of the Xiaomi's Mi 9, Asus' Zenfone 6 and the OnePlus 7 Pro. The camera can also zoom up to 30x using digital zoom.

Despite its parent Huawei now being faced with a very hard time, following the trade ban imposed by the U.S government and Google cutting ties with it, Honor hasn't delayed the launch of its latest flagship lineup - the Honor 20 series. Essentially, this means that if Huawei proceeds with the smartphone's launch, it will ship without the Play Store or Google's apps.
