After the teaser on the first days of December, Honor View 20 is now official. It was only announced in China as Honor V20, with a global release to be followed at an event in Paris, France on January 22.
The phone comes with a self-in-screen self-punch-hole camera, and a 48 MP Sony IMX586 rear shooter that is accompanied by a 3D ToF sensor on the back. It will be the company's first flagship in 2019.

The Honor V20 is built around a 6.4 "LCD of 1080p resolution and an unusually high rate of 19.25: 9. The chipset is the Kirin 980, which is coupled to 6 GB of RAM or 8 GB of RAM, while the storage options are from two to 128 GB and 256 GB. Having an LCD panel means there is no UD fingerprint scanner – there is a conventional one on the back.
The front panel has a 25 MP selfie sniper hole, but only the LGP layer has been cut, while the OCA, POL, color filter and array remain unchanged. Honor boasted of refining the entire manufacturing process, so the camera is not physically penetrating the screen. If you want to know more about the design and manufacturing process, you should follow this path.
The Honor V20 comes with a cool gradient back panel with a V that changes color as the viewing angle changes. The 48 MP snapper is huge – 1/2 inch (0.8 μm / pixel) CMOS sensor with Quad-Bayer layout that allows the placement of pixels for 12 MP HDR night shots.
The ToF 3D sensor, along with the Kirin 980 chipset, enables 3D body modeling so you can look perfect in your full-height photos.
The Honor V20 (View 20) comes with EMUI and brings all the well-known and well-known features of Huawei, such as Super Night View mode – long hand exposure photos. There is also EIS and GPU Turbo 2.0 comes out of the box.

Honor V20 supports the Huawei desktop mode so that it can also be used as a desktop PC replacement when connected to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
Supports dual-frequency GPS positioning as well as a triple Wi-Fi antenna.
The battery is 4,000 mAh and comes with SuperCharge support of 22.5W – 4.5V / 5A. It should fill the power cell up to 55% in 30 minutes or to the top for an hour and a half, as that was how the Huawei Mate 20 ran with the same power configuration in our tests.
