Two days ago, HONOR launched their brand new HONOR 20 flagship series in London, United Kingdom. We mentioned too that the brave new flagship is definitely coming to Malaysia; today. As teased, they have launched the HONOR 20 series in Malaysia. If you missed our coverage of the HONOR 20 series in London, you can check back here.
The HONOR brand has been received well in Malaysia. One of the fastest growing brands in Malaysia, the brand has always focused on reaching out to the younger crowd via eCommerce. The HONOR 20 series, from the looks of it, should really appeal to the totality of the market; not just the youngsters.
*There is a caveat though, the HONOR 20 Pro is not coming to Malaysia just yet. So today, we are looking at the HONOR 20, the plain normal one. A bummer? A little bit. But they did say that it is still coming, just a little later. So we just have to be a little bit more patient.
The HONOR 20 though is still no slouch. If you saw our previous coverage, you would know too. It is still powered by the mighty powerful HiSilicon Kirin 980 with dual Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that makes Artificial Intelligence (AI) integration better on the device and more powerful than ever. That benefit is easy to notice from the camera app that harnesses the 48-Megapixel main sensor. The main wide-angle lens is supported by a 16-Megapixel sensor with super wide-angle lens above it. Below, you find two extra 2-Megapixel lenses with a depth sensor and a macro lens.
All of that is packed in a 6.26-inch Full HD+ display with a punch-hole that houses a 32-Megapixel front-facing camera front body and completed with glass at the back housing the cameras. There is a 3,750mAh built-in battery that is HONOR SuperCharge enabled too for a quick burst charge before you leave home or office. The battery keeps the Android 9.0 with Magic UI running nicely on 6GB of RAM and 128GB of memory.
The HONOR 20 will be available for purchase very soon (according to them) via their own HiHonor online store, the HONOR Ofifical Lazada and Shopee store. At launch, the device will set you back MYR 1,699. If you do get the HONOR 20 early , you get an HONOR bag, an HONOR Soundstone Bluetooth speaker, and an HONOR Band 4 worth up to MYR 500. HONOR’s very own HiHonor store is still running their HONOR RAYA celebrations with some exclusive deals and chances to win HONOR X Moschino goods. The HONOR RAYA festival has started running on the 1st of May, 2019 and will end on the 9th of June, 2019. The HONOR 20 is only available in Midnight Black, and Sapphire Blue for now. We are yet to receive word on the arrival of the anticipated HONOR 20 Pro and the Icelandic White colour option. Watch this space!
