Honor 20, the successor to Honor 10, will be launched at an event in London on May 21.

There is a possibility that Huawei’s e-brand will only launch the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro at the event next month while the Honor 20 Lite might get a separate launch earlier. Now, ahead of the official launch, the pricing for the Honor 20 Lite has been confirmed for Germany.

The smartphone could be cheaper in markets outside Europe and is expected to become official in China as Honor 20i tomorrow. In terms of specifications, the Honor 20 Lite is likely to feature a 6.21-inch Full HD+ LCD display with waterdrop notch.
