Huawei is having a pretty bittersweet month. It just launched the Huawei P30 series last month but now faces a crisis thanks to a US ban that has at least been temporarily suspended. It's sub-brand Honor launched its own 2019 flagship against that backdrop and the Honor 20 Pro just stole the third spot from the OnePlus 7 Pro on DxoMark's smartphone list.

Honor 20 Pro could give the Huawei P30 Pro some competition

In the past, Honor phones have mostly been regarded as cheaper, mid-range options from Huawei. For the past year or two, however, Honor not only helped Huawei rise to the world's #2, it is even giving its parent company some rivalry.

Honor 20 could undercut the Huawei P30

Huawei may have turned heads at MWC 2019 last week with its Mate X foldable phone but its actual 2019 star is still coming in a few weeks. While Huawei is warming up the hype machine, however, its sub-brand Honor may already be preparing the Huawei P30's biggest rival.

Honor 10 Lite Review: Honor 8X on a budget

Honor, an independent Huawei subsidiary, is well-known and well-loved for offering high-end specs, higher than Xiaomi's, at lower prices. In some cases, it almost rivals its parent by putting almost the same specs and features as, say, a P or Mate series into a more affordable package with only a few compromises.
