The Honor 20 Pro goes the distance, ISO 204,800, holographic glassback, 9.1 surround sound and more!

July 30, 2019

Honor today announced commercial availability of the Honor 20 Pro in the UAE. There are quite a few truly unique aspects to the flagship device from the brand, with many of them on the camera front.

Start off with the design, and the Honor 20 Pro is the first Honor product to introduce the world’s first Dynamic Holographic glassback, which is crafted through an industry-first Triple 3D Mesh technology. As light passes through the glassback, light is reflected and refracted in all directions resulting in a depth-inducing optical effect.

Come to the camera, and the Honor 20 Pro comes equipped with a Sony IMX586 48MP AI Quad Camera and f/1.4 wide aperture, the world’s widest in a smartphone. This enables 50% more light intake. Plus, there’s dual 4-axis optical image stabilization and upto ISP 204,800. Ultra-High ISO Sensitivity ensures a better low-light photography experience. Interestingly, the device has been accorded 111 points by DxOMark, the 2nd highest score attained by any smartphone. In No. 1 on the DxO chart, of course, is the Huawei P30 Pro.

On the specs front, the Honor 20 Pro boasts a 7nm Kirin 980 AI chipset, comes with an optimized 4,000 mAh battery, 256GB storage, GPU Turbo 3.0 and Virtual 9.1 Surround Sound system ensuring a more conducive audio environment.

Honor 20 Pro is available in Phantom Black and Phantom Blue colors, and will be on shelves across the UAE from 2nd August 2019 at AED 1,999
