At the Honor View 20 international launch event in Paris, the company finally revealed the pricing and availability details of the new phone. Starting on February 23, the Honor View 20 will start making its way to 18 countries across Europe and the Middle East. The phone was fairly cheap when it made its debut in China in December, but Honor has chosen to pump the price up a bit since its direct competitors in these new markets are typically priced higher.
The base model of the Honor View 20 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will sell between €549 and €569 depending on the market, but you’ll have to spend between €649 and €699 if you want 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. In the UK, pricing for the honor View 20 will start at 499 Pounds. To put things into perspective, the different variants of the smartphone sell for €470 and €550 in China when you factor in the exchange rate and the extra 22% VAT charges most European regions tack onto the price of the device.
The higher price does get you a free Honor Watch Magic which typically sells for €179. It’s a nice touch, but we’re sure that most people would rather have an extra 50-60 Euro knocked off the sticker price. There’s still no indication that the Honor View 20 will be making its way to North America, so you’ll have to find a way to import the Honor View 20 if you’re keen on picking one up over here.
