The next Honor labelled smartphone expected to go official is the Honor X20 5G. The device is slated for an August 12 launch in China. The rumour mill has been spilling its development details. This handset has already made appearances at some mobile authentication platforms including 3C and TENAA.
The latest Geekbench listing has confirmed some key specifications such as processor and RAM. The benchmark scores have also been revealed by the database. The model number listed on Geekbench is the same as the TENAA and 3C mobile certification website, i.e, Honor NTN-AN20.

The Honor X20 5G’s features revealed by the Geekbench listing included ARM MT6877V/ZA model processor and 8GB RAM. For reference, this MediaTek processor is marketed as the Dimensity 900 SoC. The octa-core processor has Mali-G68 GPU support and a base frequency of 2.0GHz.
The Geekbench listing has only revealed an 8GB RAM configuration. We are not sure if the company will be launching any other higher RAM variant. The storage capacity is also not revealed by the benchmark website. But, we can’t rule out the possibility of a 128GB storage model.
