The HONOR 20S has recently been unveiled, and is roughly the same as the Honor 20 only with a different chipset, one less sensor, and a lower price tag.

The SoC of the 20S is the Kirin 810. Likewise, the 20S has a Mali-G52 MP6 from a Mali-G76 MP10. The difference in the CPU is relatively small with only two Cortex-A76 cores, instead of four, and six A55 cores.

It comes with two memory variants – 6GB RAM/128GB internal storage or 8GB RAM/128GB internal storage.


The triple rear camera has a 48MP main sensor with f/1.8 aperture along with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 2MP macro camera.

The chipset tops out at 1080p/30fps video recording though losing the 4K video capture. It also doesn’t have the 2MP depth sensor which the Honor 20 has.

Inside the punch-hole on its 6.26-inch IPS LCD panel is the 32MP selfie camera. The display has 1080p+ resolution and covers 96% of the NTSC color gamut, while the fingerprint scanner is mounted on the side of the phone.

Powering the device is a 3750mAh battery with 20W fast charging support.

The 6GB/128GB model sells for CNY 1,900 (around PHP 13,800)  while the 8GB RAM version is priced at CNY 2,200 (around PHP 16,000).
