The Honor Magic 3 series includes three flagship phones, but apart from this series, Honor also launched a mid-range phone under its “X” series named the Honor X20 5G. It is worth mentioning that X20 5G is not the first phone to launch under this series since the Honor X20 SE launched in June. That was also a 5G phone with the Dimensity 700 SOC, but the X20 5G is a more expensive phone with better specifications. For example, it swaps the Dimensity 700 in favor of the Dimensity 900, gets a high-refresh-rate display, 66W fast charging, and more. And what’s more interesting is the fact that the starting price of the X20 5G is only 100 Yuan (or $15) more than that of the X20 SE.

Design-wise, the Honor X20 5G is completely different from the X20 SE. There is a pill-shaped cutout on the front instead of a tiny circular cutout in the middle. The rear now has a big circular camera module with three cameras and an LED flash in it. Just as in the case of the X20 SE, the X20 5G seems to have extremely thin bezels all around. There is a 94.4% screen-to-body ratio. The phone does have a headphone jack, and it is placed on the top.

The display on the front is a 6.67-inch LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate and a Full-HD+ resolution (2376×1080). It has a pill-shaped cutout on the top left corner, and in that, you have the 16 Megapixel selfie camera. Under the hood, there is the Dimensity 900 5G SOC which is built on the 6nm manufacturing process and is paired with 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB or 256GB of onboard storage. There is a 4,300mAh battery that can be charged rapidly since this phone supports 66W fast charging. Out of the box, Honor X20 5G runs on Android 11-based MagicUI 4.2.

On the back, there is a triple camera setup that includes a primary 64 Megapixel sensor paired with two 2 Megapixel cameras, one for macro shots and the other for depth information. There is support for 4K video recording as well.

So yeah, that’s all about the X20 5G. The phone comes in three colors and in the Chinese market, the pricing is as follows –

  • 6GB + 128GB – ¥1899 (~$293)
  • 8GB + 128GB – ¥2199 (~$339)
  • 8GB + 256GB – ¥2499 (~$385)

The phone is up for grabs in the Chinese market already.
