Huawei's sub-brand Honor is set to launch its Honor 20 series in India on June 11, exactly three weeks after the smartphones make their global debut in London and 10 days after their China launch. Honor confirmed the Indian launch by sending out media invites on Wednesday. But, there was no confirmation on time and venue of the launch. "The most awaited HONOR 20 series is set to be launched in India. We request you to block your calendars for the same," Honor said in a statement. The smartphone manufacturer also took a jibe at its competitors by directly addressing buyers by adding a note that reads, "You Deserve Better."
The confirmation came a day after Honor India President Charles Peng, in a note, had sad that better is a moving target and doesn't allow one to rest on laurels. "And striving for better has yielded one of the most exciting new launches – the stunning new Honor 20 Series range of smartphones that we will be announcing shortly," Peng had said, while wishing everyone best for the exciting times.

It might have a quad-cam setup at the back, assisted by AI Vision. The phone will reportedly feature the Sony IMX600 40-megapixel camera sensor and will be powered by a 4,000 mAh battery.
