Honor View 20 Features
The headline factor of Honor View 20 would be its hole-punch display which has become a buzzword in the smartphone world. A 4.5mm 25MP selfie snapper is housed in this hole-punch. Furthermore an All-view 6.4-inch Full HD+ (1080×2310 pixels) display with 19:5:9 aspect ratio ensures slender bezels and large screen surface. Honor is definitely in its element when it comes to the looks.
The back is equally interesting. A whopping 48-megapixel shooter with the Sony IMX596 image sensor would take care of the rear camera photography. It works on pixel binning technology that combines four pixels into one super pixel to produce better photos. AI is baked into the optics which can recognize over 60 categories and 1500 scenarios in real time. So, the neural intelligence lurks under the hood improving not just the photography but other aspects too.
Honor has incorporated a TOF (Time-of-Flight) 3D depth sensor that manages depths in your portrait shots. You could also play with the slo-mo shots at 960fps with this camera.
The Kirin 980 SoC could horsepower your phone in your real-life phone usage. The internals also boasts a mammoth 4,000mAh battery with fast charging support.
On the software side, it features Android 9.0 Pie with Huawei’s indigenous Magic UI skin. The Link Turbo feature is a prime example of the convenient features of View 20’s software. This seamlessly connects the device to the best available connectivity option among 4G and Wi-Fi. You are likely to love the Advanced GPS feature (based on AI dual frequency) and the GPU based turbo-gaming feature.
