The Honor 20's launch date has now been officially confirmed. Going by previously established information, there could be a Pro model. The devices are expected to share camera hardware with the Huawei P-series flagships and will deliver excellent camera performance.

Honor usually releases two flagship phones every generation, not including the China-exclusive Honor Magic devices. The company already launched the Honor View 20 months ago, and is set to unveil its second premium phone for the year: The Honor 20. The Honor 20 has now been officially confirmed for a May 21 launch.

The teaser image isn't a particularly impressive one. It depicts Tower Bridge in both day and night, obviously intended to portray the Honor 20's camera abilities. Rumors have it that the Honor 20 could share camera hardware with the Huawei P20 Pro and P30, which would make it a very capable camera device. 

In fact, a while ago, word on the grapevine claimed that the device would earn a DxOMark score of 108. We're not even sure how that piece of information could be possible, because, in the event of that being true, we'd start to doubt DxOMark's objectivity. There's also the fact that no Honor device has been evaluated by DxOMark till date.

The teaser image does clarify that the images shown are for illustration purposes only. In other words, they weren't shot with the Honor 20. Obviously.

There's no date shown explicitly on the teaser, since Honor appears to want its fans to do some maths. The launch date is listed as "444+4*4*4+(4+4)/4+44/4". The answer to that is 521, which is all we need to know that the devices will be launched on May 21.

We're not sure what the "4" theme alludes to, though? We expect the Honor 20 to feature three rear cameras. Adding a single selfie camera to that setup makes for a grand total of four cameras on the device.
