  • Say hello to the most anticipated smartphone of the season — HONOR 20 PRO 
  • Capture wonder by ceasing your everyday magic moments with the smartphone's AI quad camera 

 RIYADH: HONOR, the leading smartphone e-brand, announced on Wednesday the commercial availability of the highly-anticipated HONOR 20 PRO.
The model is available in attractive Phantom Black and Phantom Blue colors and kicks off its pre-order sale from July 31 and official sales from Aug. 6 across all channels for SR 1,999.
The launch event was held at the Narcissus Hotel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 
HONOR 20 PRO is all set to create a stir in the region with its benchmark camera capabilities, as it was awarded 111 points by DxOMark, the second highest score attained by any smartphone, the gold standard benchmark for camera quality in the industry. 
“We live in a very digitalized and hyper-connected world, where your smartphone is your primary gateway to a world of endless possibilities,” said Chris Sun Baigong, President of HONOR MEA. 
“The HONOR 20 PRO has reimagined the smartphone camera in ways that were not possible a decade ago, allowing professional photographers and enthusiasts to express their creativity and capture their life moments in ultra-clarity, low-lit environment and in beautiful detail.”
A pro-grade camera experience with the second highest DxOMark score
The smartphone’s impressive score puts it in close competition with other smartphone heavyweights and this commendable achievement can largely be attributed to the company’s relentless pursuit of innovation. 
As the latest member of the HONOR N-Series range, the HONOR 20 PRO embodies the pinnacle of innovation and cements the brand’s leadership in smartphone design.
This is the first time in the history of the brand to introduce a flagship device that comes equipped with a Sony IMX586 48MP AI Quad Camera and industry-largest f/1.4 wide aperture. 
In the most recent OTA (over-the-air) upgrade, HONOR 20 PRO also comes with Ultra-High ISO Sensitivity, which provides a better low-light photography experience.
Complements stylish lifestyles with its exquisite and fashionable design 
The HONOR 20 PRO redefines the user experience by becoming the first product in HONOR’s history to introduce the world’s first Dynamic Holographic glassback, which is crafted through an industry-first Triple 3D Mesh technology. 
As light passes through the glassback, light is reflected and refracted in all directions resulting in a mesmerizing and depth-inducing optical effect that sets the HONOR 20 PRO apart from its predecessors. 
An all-round and unmatched smartphone experience
Armed with the best-in-class software and hardware, HONOR 20 PRO is also an enabler of a truly intelligent experience for all users. The 7nm Kirin 980 AI chipset in the main driver of its speed and cutting-edge performance. 
It is equipped with a 4,000 mAh battery that can support full-day uninterrupted use, while its super-large 256GB storage provides the headroom for extreme demands. 
The new smartphone also boasts an industry-leading GPU Turbo 3.0 – a feature that enhances the device’s gaming capabilities by offering users with richer visual and tactile experience. To complete the entire experience, it comes with a Virtual 9.1 Surround Sound system, one that supports most wired and wireless earphones allowing a more conducive audio environment. 
The campaign titled “Capture Wonder” encapsulates a key promise to its end-users enabling you to capture your magic moments in explicit detail in everyday scenarios so you can make the most of the lens capabilities and cease your special moments.
Additionally, Saudi Arabia will also see HONOR 8X MAX priced at SR 999 and HONOR 10LITE priced at SR 699 available for purchase at all online and offline stores. 
HONOR 8X MAX packs in a bigger screen of 7.12”, a 4GB RAM + 128 GB ROM, dual speakers of Dolby Atoms and a batter capacity of 5000 mAh. 
HONOR 10LITE boasts a screen of 6.21”,128 GB ROM and an upgraded 24 MP selfie camera. Both smartphones come with advanced versions of their respective predecessors recently released to provide greater value to HONOR’s loyal customers.
In line with its slogan, “HONOR My World”, the brand was created to meet the needs of digital natives through Internet-optimized products that offer superior user experiences, inspire action, foster creativity and empower the youth to achieve their dreams.
