Honor is part of Huawei and so it suffered the same fate as it’s parent company. Though banned in the US, the Honor brand is becoming a leader somewhere else. According to a post published on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging platform by Zhao Ming, the company’s president, Honor is now a leading smartphone brand in Russia in terms of market share.
While Zhao Ming didn’t detail everything word for word, the success of the smartphone brand according to him was due to the great quality of the Honor devices as well as great user experience. He also made it known that both the Honor 20 and the Honor 20 Pro are still the leading smartphones in terms of sales in Russia.
In May, the Honor 20 Pro was announced and made it to the Russian smartphone market just two months later. The flagship smartphone offers a 6.26 inch display with a 32MP Hole-Punch camera. It also feature a HiSilicon Kirin 980 Octa-Core processor which comes in two variants based on Memory configurations which are 8GB RAM + 128GB Storage or 8GB RAM + 256GB Storage.
As for the camera department, the Honor 20 Pro features a quad-camera setup comprising a 16MP f/2.2 super-wide-angle camera, a 48MP main Sony IMX586 camera with an f/1.4 aperture. It also comes with an 8MP f/2.4 Telephoto lens and a 2MP f/2.4 Macro lens
While still being a budget smartphone, it features high premium hardware as well as software upgrades that makes it very premium in the realms of smartphones such as the iPhone XR (or even the iPhone 11). Zhao Ming also revealed other information about the next flagship, the Honor Vera 30 Series which will be known globally as Honor V30.
And speaking of the up and coming Honor V30, the device will feature the latest HiSilicon Kirin 990 Chipset with a 90Hz display. Whether the device will have 5G network enabled is yet unknown as of now. Meanwhile Huawei, the company’s parent company is paying more attention to it’s next flagship, the Mate 30 series which is going live later this month on the 19th of September in Munich, Germany.
