Huawei has just sent out media invites for the launch of the Honor View 20 in India. The smartphone was launched in China just last month and is now headed to India with its first ever 48MP rear camera, a punch-hole display and a new technology called Link Turbo. The View 20 from Honor is a flagship grade smartphone and could be expected to cost somewhere between Rs 35,000 - Rs 45,000, depending on different storage variants.

In terms of specs, the Honor View 20 features a 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. 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 under it signifying the View 20 moniker.

At the heart of the View 20 lies Huawei’s flagship octa-core Kirin 980 chipset manufactured using the 7nm process. The processor has also been used on Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro flagship smartphone and so is the company’s GPU Turbo 2.0 performance and graphics boosting tech which also makes its way into the View 20. There is also a liquid cooling system to keep CPU temperatures in check.

When it comes to the camera, the View 20’s 48MP rear camera is an industry first and get Sony’s IMX586 CMOS sensor with a pixel size of 0.8 μm, making it possible to pack 48 megapixels onto a 8.0 mm diagonal unit. One can expect the camera to account for good quality low light images with low noise. Minimal highlight blowouts or loss of detail in shadows can also be expected from the camera, but all depends on how well it has been optimised for the phone.

The second sensor of the dual rear camera is used to capture depth. The punch-hole in the display houses a 25MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture.

The View 20 also gets a sizeable 4,000mAh battery with super fast charge support. Link Turbo tech in the phone is said to enable faster download speeds by leveraging both Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity at the same time. The phone runs on the latest Android 9 Pie OS with Magic UI 2.0 layered on top.

Further, Honor View 20 comes in two variants - 6GB RAM + 128GB Storage and 8GB RAM + 128GB storage. In China, the 6GB variant of the phone is priced at CNY 2999 (approximately Rs 30,000) and the 8GB RAM version costs CNY 3499 (approximately Rs 35,500). Honor has also launched a special Moschino Edition of the View 20 with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage for CNY 3999 (approximately Rs 40,000). It is unknown which variants of the device will be launched in India.
