On August 12, Honor plans not only to unveil the Magic3, a flagship handset, but also the Honor X20 5G. The upcoming mid-range smartphone of the former Huawei subsidiary has already leaked and has been teased by Honor directly. A retailer listing has confirmed many specifications for the Honor X20 5G, too.

After the numerous leaks about the Honor Magic3, it is hardly surprising to see more information about another Honor smartphone appearing online. If Evan Blass, RODENT950 and JD.com were not enough, Honor has also revealed a few details about its upcoming smartphone.

According to JD.com and Honor, the X20 5G has a 120 Hz display with a 94.4% screen-to-body ratio. Neither has revealed what panel type Honor has used, but a fingerprint sensor on the right-hand side of the device implies IPS technology, not AMOLED.

Incidentally, the device's pill-shaped punch hole seems to house one camera, despite there being space for two. Presumably, Honor has also equipped the X20 5G with another sensor, possibly one for 3D face recognition. Additionally, the X20 5G has three rear-facing cameras, including a 64 MP primary sensor that has an f/1.9 aperture and a 27 mm equivalent focal length. Unfortunately, the two other lenses look rather small, so we imagine Honor has cut some costs in this regard.

Moreover, the X20 5G supports 66 W fast charging and has a MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC that Honor has complemented with up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. The device will be available with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage as well. Honor will announce the X20 5G on August 12, the same day that it reveals the Magic3.
