The 20 Pro is an upcoming Honor flagship that may be in line for the telephoto lens also used in the Huawei P30 line. A newer leak suggests that it is also getting the in-display selfie camera originally seen in the Honor View 20. This recent post also possibly spoils the 20 Pro's retail packaging in part.

There is probably at least one person out there who has seen both the Huawei P30 Pro's 5x optical zoom feature and the Honor View 20's relatively unique punch-hole camera and wished they could be combined in the same device somehow. Well, they are in luck: the latest rumors on the subject of the upcoming Honor 20 Pro indicates that this phone does this to the letter.

The Honor View 20 rocked the smartphone display world by being the first to exhibit a hole for a front-facing camera set into a corner of the display. This has become much more common since, in the Galaxy S10 line. However, unlike these Samsung flagships, Honor put its punch-hole in the left upper corner rather than the right.

Som new images posted by Digital Trends show a phone sitting on a box with the legend "Honor 20 Pro" visible on the side. It also has a punch-hole in the same location. As this putative new flagship is also rumored to have a 5X telephoto module, like that of the P30 Pro, it seems that it is shaping up to be an extremely 2019 premium phone.

This new article made no mention of the non-Pro Honor 20 variant; however, this device is likely to remain cut out of the entirety of bleeding-edge features Honor or Huawei could offer a new release. In other 20 Pro news, it seems it has also gained 2 new leaked colors in recent times: apparently, there are now black and graded pink/white variants in addition to that of the original render (which is called Teal despite its distinct tendency to an attractive dark green).
