After Google suspended Huawei’s future access to Android Play Store and security updates, there are serious question marks over the future of Huawei and Honor phones.
While Google, Huawei and Honor have promised to support phones currently on the market, it’s not clear how long they’ll receive Android updates or access to the Google Play Store, which would severely curtail their usefulness compared to the competition.
Honor phones typically take tech from Huawei’s latest handsets, water down the specs in a few non-critical areas, and sell for a lower price tag – but the Honor 20 Pro throws this precedent out the window with specs that appear to make it an even more appealing prospect than the high-end Huawei P30 Pro.
Like the P30 Pro the Honor 20 Pro has no less than four rear cameras, as well as the latest Kirin 980 chipset – but it’s also shaking things up with new features like a ‘punch-hole’ front-facing camera rather than a notch, and side-mounted fingerprint sensor built into the power button.
