The Honor 20 Lite has been officially announced and it's the first handset to bear the 'Honor 20' name ahead of the Chinese firm's May 21 launch event where we will see the flagship Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro.
However, Honor has decided to give the 20 Lite its own chance at stardom by announcing it earlier than its namesakes, and it'll even go on sale before its pricier siblings have been announced.

The Honor 20 Lite release date is set for May 15, and it's priced at £249.99, which is reasonable when you consider what you're getting in return.
There's a 6.21-inch Full HD+ display, Kirin 710 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, microSD slot, 32MP front-facing camera and Android 9 Pie (coated in EMUI 9.0). It's what's on the rear that's the real talking point though.
The Honor 20 Lite boasts three rear cameras, with a 48MP main sensor, 2MP depth sensor for portrait mode, blurred backgrounds and a wide-angle, 120 degree 8MP snapper allowing you to fit more of your surroundings into each shot.
That's an impressive line-up, especially when you consider its similarly placed rivals are only packing dual cameras.
There's also a rear facing fingerprint scanner, while a headphone jack joins a speaker and microUSB port on the base of the 20 Lite.
You'll be able to pick the Honor 20 Lite up from a number of retailers on May 15, including Carphone Warehouse, Amazon, John Lewis, Argos, AO.com and Very.
It will be available in two colors – Phantom Blue and Midnight Black – with the black version exclusive to Carphone Warehouse for the first six months.
