The Honor 20 line is (still) set to launch tomorrow (May 21, 2019) in London. A new poster showing the brand's logo alongside a treatment for the next upcoming X-Men movie, "Dark Phoenix" has been released via official Weibo channels. It shows the probable outline of at least one new phone.

Despite the potentially significant set-back with US businesses recently experienced by its parent company, there are no indications that the mobile device brand Honor will delay its upcoming flagship launch. This event will see the release of 2 premium smartphones, the 20 and 20 Pro. Its international unveiling will therefore still take place tomorrow (May 21, 2019) in London.

However, these new phones will also get a Chinese launch in Beijing on May 31, 2019. These events may now have a Marvel-movie twist: it appears that the 20 and 20 Pro will be marketed in conjunction with the release of X-Men: Dark Phoenix. This detail has been made apparent through a new post on Weibo, showing a poster with the title's main character, Jean Grey, superimposed on a stylized X made up of what is likely to be the 20 series' outline.

This image does not give away many more clues about the two phones. However, the social media post also contains confirmation that the Pro variant will indeed rock quad cameras. One of these may be the same telephoto lens found on the Huawei P30 Pro. Therefore, despite the lack of pricing information until tomorrow, the Honor 20 Pro may be a compelling buy for mobile photography enthusiasts.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
