About two months ago we saw Honor launched their HONOR 20 flagship line to Malaysia with some very vague release dates. The HONOR 20 device is finally here last month. There was still something missing though, they did not bring in the HONOR 20 Pro, and that got everyone curious. Of course we kept digging but they did not give us any dates.
For those of you who have been waiting for the HONOR 20 Pro, the Chinese brand’s true flagship, your wait is not for nothing; for the HONOR 20 Pro is about to come your way. Okay, you might have known this for sometime now and read it somewhere else, fine. Still, we want to tell you.
The HONOR 20 Pro is coming on the 15th of August, 2019. That is just two days away from today. But why is this device such a big deal? Why do we anticipate this more than the HONOR 20? Is it still a good buy after so long?
To recap a little bit, this is a HiSilicon Kirin 980 device that packs an immensely powerful 48-Megapixel Quad camera set-up. Yes, while the main camera packs the same pixels compared to the HONOR 20, its supporting camera are more powerful. While the HONOR 20 tops up at 3,750mAh battery, the HONOR 20 Pro packs a 4,000mAh battery which also means it should last longer in a day compared to the littler sibling.
There are no available pre-orders at this time as we know it. It will be officially available on the 15th of August, 2019 though. No, not just the announcement; it will be for sale on that date too.
The HONOR 20 Pro flagship will retail for MYR 2,299 and will be available in two Phantom colours – Blue and Black. They will be giving out an HONOR 20 Pro for every 10,000 ‘remind me’ button clicks on Shopee from the 9th of August to 14th of August, 2019, so you might want to head down there to click on the button for a chance to win one. Hey, free smartphone, why not? Did I also mention that it comes with two years warranty now, instead of just one year? Yes, it does.
The HONOR 20 Pro will be available on the 15th of August, 2019 via all of HONOR’s partner retailers, their Experience Stores, their very own e-commerce platform, and exclusively on Shopee. If you are one of the first ones to get the device on the 15th of August, 2019 on Shopee you are entitled to a HONOR Band 3 fitness tracker and a Honor FlyPods Lite true wireless earphones, all of which are with MYR 500. If you choose to do to the store you get a premium luggage pack, an HONOR Mini Bluetooth speaker, and an HONOR Tripod/Selfie Stick (2-in-1), all of which are also worth about MYR 500.
