Huawei made an official announcement in China on Wednesday of its latest Honor brand phone, the Honor V20 or Honor View 20. The View suffix might have to do with the massive 48MP camera fitted on this phone. Read on for the other specifications and features of the new phone.
The display on this Honor phone is 6.4inches with a full HD LCD display and the aspect ratio of the screen is 19.25:9. Huawei has fitted its latest Kirin 980 processor on this device and the phone is being released in two variants. One will sport a RAM of 6GB and its internal storage will be 128GB, while the other variant will have 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. There may be a third 8GB/128GB variant as well.
The fingerprint sensor has been pushed to the rear panel as with the LCD panel, the under-display sensor is not technically feasible. The front screen has a hole to accommodate the large 25MP camera in the front. Huawei has claimed that it has worked around the different support features for the front camera through design tweaks.
The rear camera too is large enough, at 48MP. Again, this single sensor is claimed to be equipped with several features to capture top quality images. There is, in addition, a 3D ToF sensor that permits 3D body shaping. Honor claims the user can take perfect pictures of the full body without any distortion.
Some of the features you find on the Huawei models have been brought to the Honor sub-brand thanks to the EMUI interface over the stock Android operating system. You can enjoy the Super Night View mode as well. Another feature on the Honor V20 is the desktop mode that lets you connect the device to a monitor keyboard and a mouse and use the phone like a PC.
A 4000mAh battery helps the phone run long and the battery is supported by a 22.5W SuperCharge. This ensures a quick 30 minutes of charging of the battery, up to 55% of its rated charge from zero.
Red Blue and Black are the colours in which the new Honor V20 is being launched in.
As for pricing, the 6GB/128GB variant of the Honor V20 is being priced at CNY2,999 (around Rs 30,000), the 8GB/128GB one at CNY3,499 (around Rs 35,500). The third variant, called Moschino with 8GB RAM and 256GB ROM will be available for CNY3,999 (around Rs 40,600).
While the sale begins in China on December 28, international buyers will have to wait till the last week of January 2019 to know the prices in their respective markets.
