The display notch was the big thing of 2018, and it appears that 2019 will be about the display hole. For example, Samsung developed the Galaxy A8s with the Infinity-O display. Now, Honor is putting its two cents in with the Honor View20. Honor asserts that its phone has a smaller in-display hole, but the phone may have some exciting features on its backside.
The View20 sports a huge 48MP back-end camera, which is powered by the IMX586 CMOS sensor that Sony developed. This sensor is designed for low-light pictures, using 0.8um pixel size and combining it four pixels into one for pictures taken in low light. This leads to a low light picture with a much higher resolution than one would expect to see.
Another great aspect of the Sony IMX586 sensor is its ability to zoom in on an object and still take a high-resolution picture. It also allows users to crop photos and maintain the same resolution.
The Honor View20 comes with the Kirin 980 chip provides the dual-ISP and dial-NPU that aids the camera even more.
The View20 comes with an “All-View” display with a 4.5mm wide in-display hole.
Honor developers created the “Link Turbo,” an AI feature that lets users download multiple items on either 4G or WiFi. Samsung phones have a similar feature, but the Link Turbo feature allows people to switch between the two options quicker.
Honor recently showed off the View20, but what it really entails will be seen Dec. 26 in Beijing and then on Jan. 22. Other rumors circulating about the phone include the 6GB of RAM and the EMUI 9. It stands to reason the Honor View20 will be one of the most sought-after smartphones in 2019.
