At the start of this month, Honor announced the commercial availability of the highly anticipated Honor 20 Pro. It is available in both black and blue colors with official sales having kicked off from August 2 at Dh1,999. Honor calls its flagship “the most anticipated smartphone of the season” and here are five major reasons why you should consider getting one this festive shopping season.
Pro-grade camera experience
The Honor 20 Pro creates a stir in the region with its camera capabilities. It has received the 2nd highest score attained by any smartphone of 111 points from DxOMark, the gold standard benchmark for camera quality in the industry. The achievement can largely be attributed to the company’s pursuit of innovation. This is the first time Honor has introduced a flagship device that comes equipped with a Sony IMX586 48MP AI quad-camera with an industry-largest f/1.4 wide aperture for a better low-light photography experience.
Honor’s flagship introduces the world’s first dynamic holographic glass back, which is crafted through an industry-first, triple 3D mesh technology. Due to this, light is both reflected and refracted in all directions to make for a mesmerizing and depth-inducing optical effect, something that sets the Honor 20 Pro apart from its predecessors and the competition.
Aside from this, the phone also features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that is comfortable and faster than in-screen fingerprint scanners we currently find on rival flagships.
