According to recent leaks, the Honor 20 is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 980 (2 x Cortex A76 2.6 GHz + 2 x Cortex A76 1.92 GHz + 4 x Cortex A55 1.8 GHz) processor with 720 MHz ARM Mali-G76MP10 GPU. It comes in 6GB / 8GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB / 256GB storage options.
In terms of optics, the new handset sports quad camera set up on the back. The 48-megapixel 1/2-inch Sony IMX586 sensor comes with ‘4-in-1 Light Fusion’ system (saves a 12-megapixel image by default) and f/1.8 aperture.
The Sony sensor is said to be a customized version (built in collaboration with Sony). It will sport a Red-Yellow-Yellow-Blue (RYYB) filter instead of the regular Red-Green-Green-Blue (RGGB). Recently, Huawei customized the 48-megapixel Sony IMX600 sensor on Huawei P30 Pro with an RYYB filter array.
Additionally, it features a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens (117-degree field of view, f/2.2 aperture), a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro lens (f/2.4 aperture).
For selfies and video calling, the smartphone sports a 32-megapixel front camera. It is backed by a 3650mAh battery with 22.5W (4.5V-5A) fast charging support.

As per recent leaks and rumors, the Honor 20 Pro will also sport a quad camera set up on the back (with a square periscope camera that will add zooming capabilities similar to the Huawei P30 Pro). However, unlike the Honor 20, it might come with a regular Sony IMX600 sensor with the regular RGGB filter, optical image stabilization, and f/1.4 aperture.
Additionally, it features a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens (117-degree field of view, f/2.2 aperture), an 8-megapixel depth sensor (3X optical zoom, OIS, f/2.4 aperture), and a 2-megapixel macro lens (f/2.4 aperture).

Additionally, the premium handset will feature a hole-punch at the top left corner of the screen. This will allow the handset to have virtually non-existent bezels. A SIM-card slot can also be seen at the upper left edge.
The Pro variant will also support reverse wireless charging. Other specs are likely to be the same as the Honor 20 model. However, the selfie camera will use a pop-up selfie mechanism.
