The Honor View 20 aka V20 will feature the world’s first in-display camera the same thing that is expected to see on the Samsung Galaxy S10 next year along with a 48MP main camera what Honor is labeling Link Turbo, which combines Wi-Fi and LTE signals to boost download speeds.
Well to note Xiaomi isn’t the only manufacturer set to launch a phone with a 48MP camera, as Honor is all set to rival the company with its upcoming flagship that will also sport Sony’s IMX586 48MP imaging sensor at the back.
Honor also revealed that the phone will be powered by the Kirin 980 and that it will have an in-display cutout for the front camera. The upcoming View 20 is said to feature an even smaller hole diameter for the front camera – a pinhole camera at the upper left corner of this “All-View Display.” Interestingly, the lens here is mounted “like a diamond” underneath the display, thus maintaining the latter’s structure. This includes a selfie camera which resides in a tiny screen hole measuring 4.5mm in diameter and a 48-megapixel camera on the back.
The Honor View 20 as announced with Sony’s IMX586 sensor will be the world’s first mobile camera with a resolution of 48-megapixels. Apart from that, the Honor View 20 has a nearly bezel-less front with the company’s new All View technology which lets them put a high-res selfie camera with an almost 100-percent screen-to-body ratio. In addition, the phone is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 980 octa-core chipset which is manufactured through a 7nm process and can be found on a bunch of recent Huawei flagships like the Mate 20 Pro.
The timing suggests the upcoming flagship is slated for an unveil in Paris along with the rest of the world on January 22. In India, it is projected to be priced at Rs. 34,999 with 6 GB RAM / 128 GB internal storage which is likely to be available in Black and Gold color variants.
