Honor, like Huawei (its parent company), has been launching amazing smartphones lately. From Honor 10 to the Honor Magic 2, the devices have amazed almost everyone. With the right pricing and great specs, Honor smartphones are a run for its money.

The latest Honor smartphone announced is the Honor View20, which is the world’s first phone with high-definition 48MP rear 3D ToF camera and a front-facing 25MP camera integrated into the display. The View 20 is already on sale in China and will be introduced globally on January 22 in Paris.

Honor India has started teasing the launch of the Honor View 20 smartphone in India already. The "Save the Date" invites are out for the tech media which reveals that Honor will be launching the View 20 in the country on January 29th, just a week after the global launch.

Honor View 20, also called as Honor V20 comes in three color options including Blue, Red and Back, and in two different RAM configurations of 6GB and 8GB, both with 128GB internal storage. Honor has priced the 6GB variant of the View 20 in China at 2,999 Chinese Yuan (~ Rs. 30,700 / US$438), whereas the 8GB variant costs 3499 Chinese Yuan (~ Rs. 35,810 / US$510).

Considering the China pricing, the smartphone will compete head to head with the likes of OnePlus 6T and Asus Zenfone 5Z. The teasers out by Honor confirms that the Honor View 20 will be launched in India exclusively on Amazon India. You can read more about the smartphone design and specs below.

Honor View 20 Design

Honor View 20 is the first smartphone to use advanced nanolithography technology to develop an invisible nano-texture on its body. The fourth generation of nano-vacuum coating and invisible aurora texture process create a vivid and dynamic V-shape color gradient with a gleaming effect on the back of the View 20.

To eliminate the notch and increase the screen-to-body ratio of the V20, Honor developed a new All-View display with an in-screen front camera, which basically is a super small hole with a diameter of only 4.5mm created at the top left corner of the display to house the front-facing camera, thereby increasing the display area. With this notch-less design, the Honor View 20 achieves a stunning 91.8% body-to-screen ratio.

On the rear, the View 20 has dual-rear cameras aligned horizontally at the top left corner with dual-LED flash. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the back top-center and the Honor branding to the bottom. Speaker grills, USB Type-C port and primary microphone are located on the bottom frame, and Honor keeps the 3.5mm headphone jack alive, embedded on the top.

Honor View 20 Camera

The key selling point of the View 20 is its rear camera packing in a 48-megapixels primary Sony IMX586 CMOS 1/2-inch (0.8 µm/pixel) sensor paired with 3D ToF secondary rear camera for depth-sensing for calculating distance based upon the time-of-flight of a light signal.

Accompanied by a 25-megapixels front-facing selfie shooter pierced on the display, Honor has made the View 20 a complete selling package.
