  • Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro Go Official with Quad Cameras

Flipping over the Honor 20, you'll find a single 32MP front-facing camera nestled into the top left-hand corner of the display. But first, let us take a look at the common features on both the handsets.

As with all our versus pieces pitting competitive phones against each other, these are both great picks. The Trump administration is not only preventing USA mobile carriers from buying telecommunications gear from Huawei, but also cutting off the Chinese company's access to Qualcomm chips and Google's Android software.

There are three models of the Honor 20 series: the Pro, the regular, and the Lite.

As for the camera department, which is the highlight of the device, Honor 20 Pro packs a quad rear-camera module. According to DxOMark, the Honor 20 Pro's scored 111 points, which is on par as the OnePlus 7 Pro and it is also the second highest score on DxOMark Mobile at the moment. Honor is not trying to reproduce what Huawei did with the P30 Pro camera and its periscope zoom, but rather equipped the Pro with 3x zoom via an 8MP telephoto lens.

The Honor 20 Pro and Honor 20 don't have an AMOLED display, so there is no in-display fingerprint scanner. At the back, Honor 20 Series comes with a V-shaped color gradient with a gleaming effect.

The mid-model Honor 20 also gets four rear-facing cameras like the Honor 20 Pro, but swaps the telephoto camera for a 2MP depth-assist camera, enabling more accurate shallow depth of field simulation.

If you're looking for a more affordable alternative, Huawei has also announced the Honor 20.

The rest comes down to a numbers game.

Honor 20 Lite has a 6.21-inch FHD display with a dewdrop styled notch. It features a marginally smaller display at 6.21 inches.

This category might be the biggest slugging match between the two phones - and ironically, the one we might have the least justification to answer, since we haven't had time with the Honor 20 Pro to properly compare camera samples.

While the phone might feature similar Sony IMX586-based 48MP main camera, a 16MP super wide-angle camera, and a 2MP macro camera just like the Pro model, it does not come with a telephoto camera though. We'll have to see how much it comes in handy in our full review. Let us know down in the comments section. If those numbers sound familiar, then you might have been watching the Huawei P30 Pro a bit too closely.

Honor isn't making consumers wait around and is also debuting a new mid-ranger to go along with the Honor 20 series.

Both Huawei and Honor use hue-shifting glass backs for their flagship phones that take on lovely gradients with every viewing angle, but that concept will be taken to the extreme with the 20 series' Dynamic Holographic design. It also features a 32-megapixel camera for selfies.

In terms of other specs, the Honor 20 Pro has only one configuration of 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage.

The Honor 20 gets 6GB of RAM and it has 128GB of onboard storage. The OnePlus 7 Pro is the victor here, but you'll have to pay for the privilege.

The Honor 20 Pro costs €599 (around $668, £471, AU$971), which puts it right at the $669 / £649 (around AU$971) starting price of the OnePlus 7 Pro.

The pricing is a good deal for what you get. Even before the recent ban on USA companies working with Huawei, it was hard to acquire the company's phones in America and other regions who followed the US' lead in keeping them out of stores and far from carriers. The OnePlus 7 Pro, on the other hand, is available in the USA in T-Mobile stores and online.
