As per the company's >poster released on Weibo, Honor is partnering with the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix movie. The poster shows Jean Grey, the character around which the movie is centred, holding a device although at this point it isn't clear if she is holding the Honor 20 or Honor 20 Pro. There is also no mention if there will be a special X-Men version of the device.

The poster confirms that the Honor 20 will be launching in London on 21 May and 31 May in Shanghai. It also appears that the device will have a quad-camera setup at the back which sits accurately with previous rumours about the phone. The poster also states that Honor will be giving away 50 tickets to lucky winners to watch the movie.

The Honor 20 or the Honor 20 Pro are purported to be coming with Huawei's HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC. Software-wise the Honor 20 should come with Android 9.0 Pie with the EMUI interface. Storage configurations should include 6 GB and 8 GB RAM options, along with 64 GB to 128 GB storage options. The Honor 20 Pro should be priced around CNY 2,999 (approx Rs 30,000).
