Honor will unveil its two new flagships, the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro, at an event in London on May 21. The Honor 20 Pro, in particular, is gearing up to be a photography monster, and Honor has enough confidence in it to make it its first device to be evaluated by DxOMark.

Huawei's sub-brand, Honor, is set to release its second premium device for the year. The company launched the Honor View 20 a few months ago as a cheaper alternative to the Huawei Mate 20 phones, and the Honor 20 will share a similar relationship with the Huawei P30 devices. That, of course, means that it will deliver excellent camera performance.

The company has heavily marketed the Honor 20 phones—expected to come in two flavors: a base and Pro model—as photography champions, and has now confirmed that the more expensive, feature-packed of the two, the Honor 20 Pro, will be tested by DxOMark.

DxOMark's business model is unknown but it would appear that the company is paid by OEMs to, hopefully, objectively review devices. Huawei's flagships are usually reviewed but this would be the first time that an Honor device makes its way to the website. That could be proof that Honor has a lot of confidence in the work it put into the Honor 20 Pro's cameras.

Not much is confirmed about the Honor 20 Pro's cameras but we expect it to share hardware with the Huawei P flagships. We'd be very surprised if the phone's DxOMark score didn't compete with devices like the Mi 9 and OnePlus 7 Pro at the very least.
