After launching in China, France and Paris, Huawei has finally launched the much-awaited Honor View 20 smartphone in India. The unique selling point of this phone is its ‘punch-hole’ selfie camera and nanotexture pattern design at the back. Honor has given a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor with a time of flight (ToF) sensor at the back of the Honor View 20. The smartphone has HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC coupled with up to 8GB of RAM. Overall, it’s a power-packed device for all performance and camera-centric people.
Honor View 20 – Design & Display
Starting with the design, the Honor View 20 comes with an in-hole display design with a selfie camera. It sports an Aurora Nanotexture pattern at the back that forms a V-shaped design when light reflects from its surface.
Huawei might be using similar design pattern from last few smartphones, but all of them looks quite premium on hands. Sources also claim that its design is based on nanolithography – a technology that brings an improved and elegant design on the rear side of the smartphone.
The Honor View 20 features a 6.4-inches Full HD+ TFT LCD all view display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 91.82 per cent screen-to-body ratio, and 398 PPI of pixel density.
