Honor teases Honor 20i and MagicBook 2019 launch for April 17 in China

Honor 20i

Unconfirmed reports have it that Huawei Honor sub-brand will be hosting a launch event at the end of the month at which time it will unveil the Honor 20, Honor 20 Pro and Honor 20 Lite. While that remains largely unconfirmed, the brand seems to have another launch planned, and one that is expected to be much less glamorous in China.

Honor has now released a video teaser via its Weibo account teasing the arrival of a new mid-range Smartphone. The video teases the launch of the Honor 20i for April 17. The teaser hasn’t revealed many details regarding the Honor 20i, besides the hint that it will get a water-drop notch with 32-megapixel AI selfie camera.

This is perhaps the first mention of the Honor 20i, so we have no clue as to what it will bring to the table. However, there are speculations that it might be the Chinese version of the Honor 20 Lite that is rumored to go official on April 25, and that seems plausible, given that the device is launching first in China before the actual launch date of the Honor 20 Lite. Its parent company only recently launched the Huawei P30 Lite in China as the Huawei Nova 4e days ahead of the global launch of the P30 Lite. You can check out the Honor 20 Lite coverage here.
