Huawei's subsidiary cost-effective smartphone brand Honor launched their latest Honor 20 Pro in Dubai on Tuesday, with a 111 DxOMark rated quad-camera having a wide aperture of f/1.4-reportedly the industry's largest-and what is dubbed the Ultra-High ISO sensitivity of up to 204,800.
The launch showed off the phone's design, with a triple-layered glass which Honor GCC's head Hang Chen mentioned was called the "world's first Dynamic Holographic Glassback, [meshing together] a glass layer, a global layer, and a depth layer" on top of each other. During the event, Chen also laid down the mission statement of the brand, explaining to the audience, "We're driven to provide professional support to both consumers and partners," adding that their latest lineup would be targeting younger consumers, much like the rest of the tech under their brand.
Honor MEA's president Chris Sun Baigong was quoted in a statement to the press as having said, "We live in a very digitalised and hyper-connected world, where your smartphone is your primary gateway to a world of endless possibilities. The Honor 20 Pro has reimagined the smartphone camera in ways that were not possible a decade ago, allowing professional photographers and enthusiasts to express their creativity and capture their life moments in ultra-clarity, low-lit environment and in beautiful detail."
Packed with an impressive 4000mAh battery, with Huawei's proprietary Kirin 980 AI chipset, claimed "the world's first cortex-A76 architecture chipset" by the organisation-you can also find it in their Mate 20 Pro, which released last year-the Honor 20 Pro also supports what's called the GPU Turbo 3.0, said to boost its gaming capabilities, and a virtual 9.1 surround sound system that supports most wired and wireless earphones.
Priced at a relatively affordable AED1999 and available in Phantom Black and Phantom Blue colours, the phone will be on sale starting August 2 across all stores.
