Huawei often launches Honor smartphones under the brand of the parent company and now we have another example of rebranding.
The globally available Honor 20 that sports a model number YAL-L21 was just certified in Thailand under the moniker Huawei nova 5T, which would also be the first nova 5 smartphone appearing outside of China.

The Honor 20 was initially announced with four cameras on the back and a punch-hole design for the selfie shooter. It is slightly different than the Honor 20 Pro, but still comes with the high-end Kirin 980 chipset.
When it was introduced back in May, the launch date was missing, since Huawei was in the middle of a flame war between the United States and China.
Eventually a month later, the phone was introduced on the global scene, including markets in Europe, Eurasia, and the Middle East under the well-known name Honor 20. While the phone costs around $500/500, in Malaysia, a country neighboring Thailand, it starts from MYR1,699, which is about $410.
We are yet to see if the more impressive Honor 20 Pro will also arrive with a new name and whether the region will see the device get launched at all.
