Honor’s new flagship smartphone, the View 20 will be available for pre-order in India from January 15. As noted earlier, the smartphone will be exclusively available via Amazon from January 29. However, those who pre-order the phone will get Honor Sport BT earphones for free. The price of the smartphone is not yet known, but since this will be a flagship-grade device, expect it to cost anywhere between Rs 35,000 - Rs 45,000, depending on different storage variants.
In terms of specs, the Honor View 20 packs a large 6.4-inch Full HD+ ‘All-View’ display with a resolution of 2310x1080 pixels. The All-View display has a punch-hole in it to incorporate a selfie camera, similar to Samsung’s Infinity-O displays. This should also make it the first smartphone in India to come with such a feature. The punch-hole is placed at the top left corner of the screen and measures 4.5mm in diameter. At the back, the phone is covered in glass which gets a V-shaped pattern that look a lot like chevrons.
Powering the View 20 is Huawei’s new flagship chipset, the Kirin 980, which is manufactured using the 7nm process. The device also comes with GPU Turbo 2.0 as well as liquid cooling, which should help when playing games.
In China, the phone is available in three variants and judging by the landing page on Amazon’s website, it looks like all three might make it to India. The base variant offers 6GB RAM/128GB storage, while the middle version offers 8GB RAM/128GB storage. The special Moschino edition offers 8GB RAM/256GB storage.
In the camera department, the Honor View 20 packs a 48MP Sony IMX586 CMOS sensor on the back. There is also a second TOF 3D sensor at the back for depth sensing. The punch-hole in the display houses a 25MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture. The handset is backed by a 4,000mAh battery with Super Charger 5V 4A charging. The phone comes with Android 9 Pie-based Magic UI 2.0.Click here for notify and buy.
