Honor View 20 product details

The Honor View 20 is a refreshing phone that does things a little differently. For example, the selfie camera is not above the screen or in a large notch but in a hole in the upper-left corner. This so-called punch-hole is going to be the trend in 2019 and Honor is leading with the View 20.

Screen is an eye-catcher

That screen is of course the biggest eye-catcher. It measures 6.4 inches but is still smaller than the View 10 which still has a 5.99 inch screen. More screen in a more compact housing. The 25 megapixel selfie camera sits in a round hole with a diameter of only 4.5 millimeters. That's small enough not to notice when you use it for a while. The All-View Display sits tight against the top and sides, but there is still a chin underneath. That's good news somewhere, because then there's room for improvement for its successor.

48 megapixel shoots best in 12 megapixel

In addition to a refreshing screen, the Honor 20 View features an impressive rear camera. Although there are two cameras to be seen, Honor chooses a different approach. One sensor measures 48 megapixels, while the second is a Time Of Flight camera that therefore sees 3D. This means that you do not zoom in, but you can scan objects in 3D and play games with them. Compare it to the Xbox Kinect where your body is the controller. For this you need a special dock and you need to connect the View 20 via HDMI cable to your TV. Afraid you can't zoom in with this 2nd camera you don't have to be. Because of the abundance of megapixels, you hardly compromise on image quality when you get images closer. The View 20 is also helped in part by artificial intelligence, also known as AI. Incidentally, you shoot the best quality photos in 12 megapixels, oddly enough. This is because this mode combines 4 pixels to 1 superpixel, which makes it possible to shoot in the dark.

  • 6.4-inch large display with screen-hole for 25 MP selfie camera
  • 48 megapixel camera with 3D capability

  • Speedy mobile web browsing on the go thanks to 4G support
  • Powerful octa-core Kirin 980 with ample 6GB of RAM memory

Powerhouse with Liquid Cooling

To ensure that the View 20 is an extremely powerful phone, Honor borrowed the Kirin 980 processor from parent company Huawei. Built on an energy-efficient 7 nanometer process, this powerful chipset features an extra fast and powerful graphics chip that allows you to effortlessly play the toughest games on it. The GPU Turbo 2.0 should provide higher frame rates and therefore smooth images. To ensure that the Kirin 980 keeps a cool head at all that game violence, Liquid Cooling has been used. An S-shape heat pipe efficiently dissipates heat so you can always deliver peak power. For this it's handy that you have a large battery so you don't have to power your phone halfway through your game. The 4000 mAh capacity battery should be sufficient for this purpose. Charging is extra fast thanks to SuperCharge. Half an hour at the charger is enough for a 50% full battery.
