Honor 20 rumours: What's happened so far?
8 May 2019: Honor 20 Pro camera system might include a dedicated macro lens
SlashLeaks revealed a couple of specification slides for the Honor 20 Pro that details what to expect from the quad camera. Based on the leak, it seems the camera could feature a 48-megapixel main sensor, 16-megapixel super-wide sensor, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens and a 2-megapixel macro lens.
3 May 2019: Honor 20 Pro official press image revealed, still coming on 21 May
Honor released an official image of the Honor 20 Pro with what seems to be a punch hole front camera in the top left corner. The device is still due to be revealed in full on 21 May in London.
30 April 2019: Honor 20 Pro leaks in black
Pocket Now posted an image of the Honor 20 Pro in black, confirming the quad camera we have seen on previous renders. As with the two gradient colours presented in past renders, the black model has a periscope lens at the top of the rear camera setup, which is the opposite to the Huawei P30 Pro that has it at the bottom.
25 April 2019: Further renders appear online
Another render has appeared on Weibo showing the same design as the previous renders from the micro-blogging site but in a different colour. The render shows a quad camera on the rear with square lens like the P30 Pro at the top of the setup, rather than the bottom like the Huawei device.
The Time of Flight sensor also appears to be within the main arrangement, rather than on the right. As the quad camera setup is rumoured for the Honor 20 Pro, we are assuming this render is for the Pro model.
25 April 2019: Honor 20 Pro render appears online
SlashLeaks published a render of what it claims to be the Honor 20 Pro. The device features a quad camera on the rear, but it appears to be in a different setup to the previous render published on Weibo.
25 April 2019: Honor teases collaboration with Moschino
Honor sent out some press materials highlighting its collaboration with Moschino. The company said the collaboration will run deeper for the Honor 20 Series than it did with the Honor View 20, including a Moschino version, phone bag and a designed phone box.
It also sent some images showing the Honor 20 peering out of the Moschino phone bag but little other details were revealed.
18 April 2019: Honor 20 Pro breaks cover with four cameras
The Honor 20 Pro appeared on Weibo with a quad-camera setup very similar to the Huawei P30 Pro. It means the Honor 20 Pro might have the same 40 megapixel wide-angle lens, 20 megapixel ultra wide angle lens plus a Time-of-Flight camera.
The final lens could then be an 8 megapixel telephoto sensor with 3 or 5x zoom. The P30 Pro has 10x zoom but it is thought the Honor 20 Pro will miss out on that.
15 April 2019: Honor sends out save the date for Honor 20 launch
Honor sent out save the dates for the Honor 20 launch. The launch will take place in London on 21 May. It is not yet clear when the device, or devices, will hit shelves.
Rumour has it we may see as many as five models within the Honor 20 Series, though not all may come to the UK.
