Key features of the HONOR 20 Lite

Triple-Lens Camera to Capture What You See
The HONOR 20 Lite’s 24MP primary camera captures the view with breath-taking realism, rich in detail, sharpness and colour. With the f/1.8 wide-aperture lens and the Quadra CFA sensor, the camera system boosts light sensitivity and lets more light pass through, allowing for epic shots in the low-light environments.

The 120-degree ultra-wide angle lens is a feature you will only see in premium smartphones. With this feature, you will be able to capture the full scene (e.g. iconic buildings, full view of long beach, panoramic city view), regardless of where you are.

To elevate your photography game, the camera’s Super Night Shoot mode effortlessly produces silky smooth night shots without a tripod, while the AI multi-scene recognition algorithm, capable of recognizing over 500 scenarios in 22 categories, helps you create professional-grade photographs with ease.

Breakthrough 32MP Selfie Camera
The HONOR 20 Lite’s AI-enhanced 32 MP selfie camera is HONOR’s best front-facing camera setup yet. It takes selfies to another level, effortlessly converting selfies into 2.3x1.7m-sized celebrity posters without compromising on detail. The built-in AI beauty algorithms intelligently touch up selfies based on gender, age and skin tone, creating a stunning yet natural look.

With the AI backlighting imaging technology, the HONOR 20 Lite’s selfie camera ensures the most flattering amount of light is well-captured under any conditions – whether backlight, sidelight or front light. The impressive lighting capabilities are made possible by the flawless combination of a 32MP ISO-enhanced lens, the screen ring light-filling technology and the Quadra sensor.

Impeccable Experiences Across All Dimensions
The powerful combination of hardware and software delivers an upgraded and flagship-like experience to help you get the most out of everything you do.

Engineered by HONOR’s highest level of craftsmanship and sophisticated 3D photolithography technology, the HONOR 20 Lite features a bold, avant-garde gradient design available in three beautiful finishes –Phantom Blue, Phantom Red and Midnight Black. With a minimalist dew-drop notch and an over 90% screen-to-body ratio, its 6.21-inch FullView HD screen also creates an immersive entertainment experience.

Powered by a Kirin 710 chipset that delivers a seamless and fast experience, the HONOR 20 Lite boasts performance comparable to that of a flagship smartphone. The 4GB RAM further enhances the processing speeds, while 128GB storage enables you to keep your favourite moments and bring all the hit TV dramas on-the-go.

Based on the EMUI 9.0 operating system, the HONOR 20 Lite enables a smarter life. The EMUI 9.0 system, optimized by the latest Android 9 system, represents an overall software upgrade that offers an intuitive experience with easier navigation, minimalistic interface and powerful AI capabilities, including HiVision. With HiVision, your phone doubles as your intelligent AI assistant, capable of performing a wide range of tasks from counting calories in food to identifying and providing information on thousands of famous paintings or more.
