As scheduled, the Honor 20S has been officially announced in China earlier today. Essentially, the device is the watered-down version of the current Honor 20 with a downgraded SoC and rear camera.
That however, makes it more affordable than the Honor 20 and is definitely an ideal phone for users who do need those hefty specs offered by the latter handset.
Honor 20S Specification
First and foremost, the Honor 20S arrives with a 6.26-inch display with 1080 x 2340 pixels screen resolution. On the whole, the device has an impressive 91.7% screen-to-body ratio.
Under the hood, the device is driven by a Kirin 810 SoC which is manufactured by TSMC using 7nm process. This is the same SoC which is found in the recently announced Honor 9X and 9X Pro. In the memory compartment, there is 6GB/ 8GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage space.
Moving on to it’s camera, the Honor 20S features a triple-camera setup comprising of a 48 megapixels (f/1.8 aperture) main snapper, an 8 megapixels (f/2.4 aperture) ultrawide angle lens, as well as a 2 megapixels (f/2.4 aperture) macro camera. At the front, there is also a hold-punched compartment located at the top-left corner which houses a 32 megapixels selfie camera.
The device is fueled by a 3,750mAh battery which supports 20W fast-charging. Software-wise, it comes loaded with Magic UI 2.1.1 which is based upon Android Pie OS.
Honor 20S Pricing & Availability
The pricing for the Honor 20S is as follows:
- 6GB+128GB: 1,899 Yuan (US$266)
- 8GB+128GB: 2,199 Yuan (US$308)
The device will go on sale starting September 5th in the Chinese market. However, there is still no words on it’s global availability so far.
