Honor has launched the Honor 20 Pro Moschino Edition smartphone in China. It is a special edition phone in the Honor 20 lineup which is likely to remain a China exclusive. It is essentially an Honor 20 Pro in terms of specifications and features but with special back panel design, a unique wallpaper, and a special theme.
Overall, the Honor 20 Pro Moschino Edition has been launched in Phantom Black color variant. It means the phone is available only in the Black color option with Golden accent. The back panel of the device has "This is not a Moschino phone" written in the Golen color. It is complemented by a wallpaper that reads, "This is not a Moschino Wallpaper." This seems to be a reverse psychology-related approach from Honor to attract the attention of buyers.
As for the specifications, it has exactly the same specs as the standard Pro edition. It means you will get a 6.26-inch Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) IPS LCD display with no notch. It has been powered by the octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor but with only 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage configuration. There is a quad rear camera setup featuring a 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 16-megapixel ultra wide-angle sensor, an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor.
The smartphone has a 32-megapixel in-display selfie camera. It means there is a punch-hole in the display panel to house the sensor and thus avoiding using a notch. It features a 4,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging support. It is running Honor's custom Magic UI skin based on Android Pie out of the box.
The Honor 20 Pro Moschino Edition has been priced at CNY 3799 (about $555). It will go on sale starting July 2nd i.e. tomorrow via Huawei's own VMall. There are no words on global availability yet.
