Last month we saw the first glimpse of a real phone with a "hollow stroke" in front of the camera (ie a camera clip completely surrounded by the screen) in the form of Huawei Nova 4, and now we learn the sub-brand Honor is in the process of releasing View 20. In addition to the new display design, it is one of the first smartphones to include a 48 megapixel rear camera.
View 20 was announced in Hong Kong, where it is called only V20, but the details are a little thin on the ground at the moment. We know it has a 4.5mm hole on the front of the camera, with minimal inside on top, but a noticeable hook. [1
Another feature Honor presented with the phone is Link Turbo which allows for simultaneous download via WiFi and 4G, as well as seamless switching for the best possible connection at any time. The View 20 was only officially bothered at today's Hong Kong event, with a real launch taking place in Beijing on December 26 before a European event in Paris towards the end of January.
Following today's launch event in China, more details about the phone were available from Honor's Chinese site. It is available in three configurations – 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage (MOSCHINO Joint Edition).
All three variants have a Kirin 980 processor, a 6.4-inch 1080×2310 IPS LCD monitor, a 4000mAh battery, a USB Type-C port, and a headphone jack. An international release is expected next month.
