HONOR 20 leaks: HONOR's upcoming phone to offer macro camera?

The standard HONOR 20 is expected to offer flagship-level horsepower and some interesting camera capabilities.

The HONOR 20 series is less than a week away, and the HUAWEI sub-brand has already been teasing a few details. Now, it looks like the HONOR 20 has been fully leaked by WinFuture, and it looks like a capable upper mid-range phone.

Honor’s new phone reportedly offers a 6.26-inch full HD+ LCD screen (with a previously mentioned punch-hole cutout), a flagship-level Kirin 980 chipset, at least 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. HONOR has previously confirmed that the device will offer a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Honor’s latest device sports a 48MP f/1.8 main camera (Sony IMX586), as well as a 16MP ultra wide-angle snapper. But it also offers a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP “macro” camera, according to WinFuture. The outlet notes that the macro camera is used to take close-up shots from just four centimeters away. By comparison, the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro allows you to close the distance to just two centimeters.

It’s suggested that HONOR could be using AI smarts and image fusion capabilities to boost image quality from the macro lens. After all, a 2MP camera would likely deliver poor results on its own. So combining data from the 48MP shooter and/or using super resolution technology seems like a sensible move.

Other leaked specs include a 3,750mAh battery, 22.5 watt fast charging, a 32MP selfie camera, and MagicUI 2.1 atop Android Pie. HONOR will officially unveil the HONOR 20 series on May 21, so you won’t have to wait long to find out if this leak is the real deal.
