Apart from Huawei, only Samsung has unveiled a phone, called the Galaxy A8s, with this type of display design. Both Samsung and Huawei announced their respective phones on the same day in China.

The Honor V20 has three USPs: All-View display, a 48MP rear camera and the Link Turbo technology, which is said to enable faster download speeds by leveraging both Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity. The 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant is priced at 569 euros (approx Rs 46,000) and the 8GB RAM and 256GB storage variant costs 649 euros (approx Rs 52,500). While the 6GB variant will be available in Black and Blue colours, the 8GB version will be available with Moschino Co-Design edition in Blue and Red colours.

Moschino is an Italian luxury fashion house specialising in leather accessories, shoes, luggage and fragrances. Honor is set to launch the device in India on January 29. During the run up to the maiden launch, a Maserati Edition of the smartphone was spotted on the internet.  There is a 4,000mAh battery with super fast charge support. The phone runs Android Pie 9.0 with Magic UI 2.0 on top.
