After a decent reception, Huawei decided to give Phantom Blue painting treatment to the recently released Honor 20. The color originally came with the Honor 20 Pro, and now will also be offered in its sibling.
Despite the Phantom Blue naming that’s more a Jade-Esque color than anything else. Still, it’s a gorgeous finish for those who appreciate different colors. The new color option will go on sale in China tomorrow, July 18, priced CNY 2,699 (€350) for the 8GB+128GB Honor 20 and CNY 2,999 (€390) for the 8GB+256GB top of the line model.

The new Phantom Blue variant will add one more option to users. The handset is currently available in Midnight Black, Sapphire Blue and Icelandic White. Now there will be four shining colors to choose.
When it comes to specifications, there will be no variation from the standard model. The Honor 20 is a slightly-lesser variant of the 20 Pro. The handset is lighter, comes with small changes on its camera specs (no telephoto camera, slower f/1.8 main lens). Last but not least it is powered by a smaller 3,750mAh battery.
The handset was released amidst all the struggle between Huawei and the US government. Huawei was concerned about how the device would perform when the sales started. However, it is actually performing quite well in the market selling above 1 million units in just 14 days. The handset boasts the Kirin 980 chipset and comes with a punch-hole display, which makes it quite appealing for lovers of new technologies.
