The Honor 20s goes official today, this device is the lite version of honor 20, but the honor 20s isn’t really a complete downgrade as you might think, it still comes with all the features you will find on the honor 20, the only thing that differentiate both of them is the chipset, one camera lower and a noticeably price drop.
The honor 20s is powered by hisilicon kirin 810 chipset which is a bit lower than the chipset found on the honor 20, the honor 20 has hisilicon kirin 980 but both the honor 20s and honor 20 has same 7nm chipset, everything about the specs is same but we noticed that there is a little change in the GPU department, honor 20s has a GPU of Mali-G52 MP6 which is lower than the Mali-G76 MP10 found on the honor 20, but it is not that a big downgrade though.
Looking at some areas where honor 20s is a little bit lower than the honor 20, we found out that there is a little bit downgrade in the CPU also, the honors 20s has two Cortex – A76 cores instead of four cores found on honor 20.
The smartphone comes in two configurations, there is a model version of the honor 20s which has 6gb of ram and 128gb of inbuilt storage and another variant which has 8gb of ram and 128gb of inbuilt storage, there is no micro SD slot.
On the camera side, the honor 20s has triple cameras at the rear unlike the honor 20 which has quad rear cameras, the triple cameras on the honor 20s are: 48mp main shooter with an aperture of f/1.8, 8mp ultra wide angle lens(unlike honor 20 which has 16mp ultra wide sensor) and 2mp macro lens shooter.
The 2mp depth sensing camera on the honor 20 is also missing on the honor 20s, on the front of the honor 20s, you have a 32mp selfie shooter sitting right inside the punch hole screen.
The smartphone has IPS LCD capacitive touch screen that has 6.26 inches in size and a Full hd+ resolution (2340 x 1080p), it has a side mounted fingerprint scanner and what is keeping the light on is a 3750mah battery that supports 20w super fast charging.
The honor 20s is expected to go on sales tomorrow at a price point of $265 for the 6gb/128gb rom variant and $270 for 8gb/128gb rom variant.
