The Honor 20 Lite, a rumored upcoming smartphone from Huawei sub-brand Honor, has appeared online in some leaked renders. The images arrived via (h/t GSMArena) yesterday, giving us a firm indication of what the handset may look like, as well as a look at its specs. And it’s shaping up to be a lot like the Huawei P30 Lite.

The Honor 20 Lite is said to feature a 6.21-inch Full HD+ display (2340 x 1080 pixels) with waterdrop notch, Kirin 710 chipset, 4GB RAM of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. The base P30 Lite model carries the same but for a 0.06-inch larger display.

The Honor 20 Lite may come with only minor differences to the Huawei P30 Lite (above).


The camera setup is said to be similar to the P30 Lite too, with a triple rear camera setup consisting of a 24MP main camera, 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 32MP camera on the front — all of which can be found on the P30 Lite.

The Honor 20 Lite is speculated to arrive with a slightly larger battery than the P30 Lite, though — 3,400mAh rather than 3340mAh — but that’s at the expense of connectivity: the P30 Lite has USB-C while the Honor 20 Lite is said to include only microUSB.

Finally, the Honor 20 Lite would house a rear fingerprint scanner, 3.5mm headphone port, and come in the same (or similar) black and blue color options as the P30 Lite, at a price of around 280 euros.

We don’t know if or when the Honor 20 Lite is set to arrive but, assuming the leak is accurate, it seems like a slightly odd release strategy for Huawei; it’s going to be hard to tell where it ends and the Huawei P30 Lite begins. Thank goodness for the rear logos, eh?
