Huawei launches new Honor phones as U.S. ban looms

Huawei's sub-brand, Honor, launched its latest smartphone in London on Tuesday (May 21) - the Honor 20 Pro.

It comes during a rough week for Huawei.

The Chinese firm was blocked from buying U.S. goods by the Trump Administration last week.

Although, that ban was delayed until August 19th by the U.S., to give telecom operators that rely on Huawei more time to make other arrangements.

Google also suspended some business with Huawei on Sunday (May 19) which raised worries about the firm's smartphones that run on Google's Android operating system.

The Honor 20 Pro is part of the brand's youth-focused budget range and retails at $699
