Honor X20 SE with Dimensity 700 chipset launched in China

After launching the Honor 50 series, Honor has launched the X20 SE in China. Let’s have a look at the specifications, features, availability, and expected price of the Honor X20 SE in Nepal.

Honor X20 SE Overview:

Display and Design

Starting with the display, the Honor X20 SE sports a 6.6-inch IPS LCD screen. It has a Full HD+ resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels and supports 16.7 million colors. Comparing its punch hole with its competitor, it looks quite large. However, you get minimal bezels around the display.

Honor X20 SE Design and Display

The handset measure 160.68 x 73.3 x 8.4 mm and weighs around 179g. On the back, it has a pill-shaped camera module housing a triple camera setup and a LED flash. Also, you get an “Honor” branding on the bottom of the rear panel. It is available in four color options: Blue Water Emerald, Cherry Pink Gold, Magic Night Black, and Titanium Silver.


As I mentioned earlier, you get a triple camera setup on the back. There is a 64MP main sensor with an f/1.9 aperture and it supports EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization). Unfortunately, for a price cut-off, the company has excluded an ultrawide lens. The remaining two lenses are 2MP macro and depth sensors for macro and portrait shots.

Upfront, it has a 16MP selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture inside the punch hole cutout. The rear camera supports different shooting features such as AI photography, high pixel mode, large aperture, and so on. You also get some shooting options on the front camera such as simply face capture, time-lapse photography, gesture photo, and so on.

Performance and Memory

The Honor X20 SE is powered by Dimensity 700 chipset from MediaTek. The chipset has an integrated 5G modem that allows dual 5G standby. It features an eight-core CPU with 2.2Ghz of maximum frequency and Mali-G57 MC2 GPU.

Users can choose between 6GB or 8GB RAM paired with 128GB of internal storage. Just like Honor 50 SE, it also supports Google Mobile Services (GMS) outside of China. It runs on Android 11 out of the box with Magic UI 4.1 on top.

Fueling the phone is a decent 4000mAh battery that has support for 22.5W fast charging via a Type-C 2.0 port. It features 5G, 4G LTE, (dual-band) Wi-Fi ac, GPS, and Bluetooth 5.1.
