Details of the upcoming Honor 20's cameras have been revealed. The phones, the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro, are said to feature camera hardware similar to the Huawei P20 Pro and the new P30 Pro. The big, RYYB and RGB sensors are also joined by telephoto and ultra-wide angle lenses.

Honor is set to unveil its new Honor 20 phones at an event in London on May 21. The devices are being marketed as camera heavyweights and most leaks back that up. The phones are expected to share hardware with the Huawei P-series flagships, and a new report claims they will also feature the P30 phones RYYB sensors.

Huawei ditched the traditional RGB sensor on the P30 Pro's main module, opting instead for an RYYB sensor that's supposed to allow 40% more light than its RGB counterparts. That technology is expected to make its way to the Honor 20 phones. 

It's unclear what sensor exactly the P30 Pro uses. Some claim it's an all-new Sony IMX650, while others claim it's just a customized IMX600. Either way, there's a high chance the Honor 20 gets an RYYB sensor like the P30 Pro, and rumor has it that it'll be a customized 48 MP Sony IMX586. The Honor 20 Pro is said to use the same main sensor as the P20 Pro: 40 MP, RGB, 1/1.7-inch, f/1.6.

What that means, of course, is that the Honor 20 phones will deliver excellent low-light camera performance. They're said to sport triple rear camera setups, with a 20 MP ultra-wide angle and 8 MP telephoto lens. 3x optical zoom is said to be standard.
