Honor is still on course to launch the Honor 20 series in London on May 21 and later in India on June 11. The India launch date was revealed a few days ago, and on Monday the company announced that the Honor 20 series will go on sale in India via Flipkart. Honor has partnered with Flipkart for the sale of the Honor 20 series, which is expected to include the Honor 20, Honor 20 Pro and Honor 20 Lite.

In a statement, Honor India CMO Suhail Tariq said, "We are happy to announce our partnership with Flipkart, India's largest e-commerce portal for our upcoming HONOR 20 series. Flipkart has been our long standing partner in selling our key products in India. With this association, we will reach out to a larger set of audience across the country."

The Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro are the flagship models that are expected to run on the 7nm-based Kirin 980 chipset. The phones are said to come with punch-hole displays like the Honor View 20, but with different screen sizes. The regular Honor 20 is rumoured to launch with a 6,26-inch FHD+ display while the Honor 20 Pro should get a 6.5-inch FHD+ screen.

Both the Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro may launch with a quad camera setup like the Huawei P30 Pro. In addition to a 40-megapixel primary sensor, the flagships may see an ultra wide-angle camera and a 5x periscope zoom camera. The fourth camera could be a ToF (Time of Flight) camera for better depth mapping.

Meanwhile, the Honor 20 Lite has already gone official in some markets. It is a lightweight version of the flagship model that comes with a 6.21-inch FHD+ waterdrop display, Kirin 710 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM. It sports a triple camera setup with a 24-megapixel primary camera, 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera and 2-megapixel depth sensor. The Honor 20 Lite also gets a 32-megapixel selfie camera and runs on Android Pie with EMUI 9.0 on top.
