Honor has silently launched the Honor 20S mid-range smartphone in Russia. It has the same name as the phone launched in China in September but differs in specifications and design. It is more like a rebranded version of the Huawei P30 Lite announced at the beginning of this year.

It has a triple rear camera setup featuring a 48-megapixel primary camera with f/1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture. On the front, it has a 24-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture for taking selfies and video calls.
It is backed by a 3,340mAh battery to keep the lights on and runs Magic UI 2.1 based on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. Other features include a USB Type-C port, fingerprint scanner, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity. The Honor 20S has been priced at 21,990 Rubles i.e. about $342 or EUR 311.
