The Honor View 20 elevates the range’s design and features to a new level. The body is made from metal with a special nano-lithography treatment on the back, adding a distinctive, reflective V-shape under the surface. The phone comes in midnight black, phantom red, or phantom blue.
On the back is a single camera lens — Sony’s new 48-megapixel IMX586. It’s joined by a time-of-flight (TOF) sensor, rather than other camera lenses, to measure distances and create bokeh shots. Honor says the View 20’s camera will be able to deliver photos with masses of detail even when zoomed in. Together with the artificial intelligence (A.I.), the camera will take multiple pictures and collate them for a single, hybrid high-definition image. It will also use 4-into-1 pixel binning technology for low-light images.
The Kirin 980 processor powers the View 20 with the option of 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, or 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The View 20 also has triple-antenna Wi-Fi for an improved signal when gaming or watching movies, plus Link Turbo, which uses A.I. to assess the best network connection between Wi-Fi and cellular, based on the signal, usage, and network conditions, and switch seamlessly between them.
A 4000mAh battery is inside, charged with Honor’s proprietary fast charging system. Honor uses Android 9 Pie, with its own Magic UI interface over the top. Other incidental specifications include a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C charging, and a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone.
