Honor V20 goes official with 6.4-inch All-View display, 48MP rear camera



The Honor V20 is now official in China and it is the company’s first smartphone with a display hole. The Honor V20 was first revealed at an event in Hong Kong where the company confirmed that it will come with an All-View display, 48MP rear camera, Kirin 980 SoC and a new technology called Link Turbo. With its launch in China, we can now confirm some other details as well as its price.

The Honor V20 has been priced at CNY 2999 (approx Rs 30,000) for the base variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The phone will also be available with 8GB + 128GB priced at CNY 3499 (approx Rs 35,500), respectively. Honor has also launched a special Moschino brand edition of the V20 in China with 8GB + 256GB configuration proced at CNY 3999 (approx Rs 40,000). Honor has set a global launch for the new flagship in Paris on January 22 where the device will be called Honor View 20. This is expected to launch in India as well, although the company is yet to confirm this.

Honor V20 specifications

As mentioned above, the Honor V20 is one of the first phones with a punch-hole display. The company revealed this earlier this month on the same day Samsung announced the Galaxy A8s which also comes with a display hole. While Samsung calls its display the Infinity-O display, Honor is calling the screen on the V20 the All-View display. The phone offers a small circular cutout on the top left corner of around 4.5mm in diameter. This hole will house a single 25MP selfie camera, thereby eliminating the need for a notch.

Honor says the glass back integrates a combination of technology and aesthetics by incorporating a unique V symbols under the glass through nano laser coating process, which means you will see V-shaped patterns on the back when light hits the surface. It is offered in Blue, Black and Red colours. The phone also offers a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The Honor V20 sports a 6.4-inch FHD+ (2310×1080) display. It is powered by an octa-core Kirin 980 flagship chipset, which is the same processor powering the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. It is Huawei’s first 7nm chipset that promises to deliver better performance and power efficiency over its predecessor. It also comes with Dual NPU for advanced AI and machine learning computation. This is coupled with up to 8GB of RAM for fast multi-tasking speeds and flagship performance.

The V20 also supports GPU Turbo 2.0 that boost performance and graphical output while playing games. Additionally, it is also equipped with The Nine liquid cooling system, designed in an S-shaped to cool three core areas that includes camera, CPU and charging IC.

The V20 is also the company first smartphone with a 48MP rear camera. Honor is using a Sony IMX586 CMOS sensor that will use pixel binning technology to merge four 0.8 micron pixels into one to offer a large 1.6 micron pixels. The Kirin 980 chipset will offer a 48MP AI HDR mode to offer high definition images. There is also a secondary ToF (Time of Flight) camera on board to obtain depth information. The V20 houses a 4,000mAh battery with super fast charge support and ships with Android Pie with Magic UI 2.0 on top in China. Globally, the phone will ship with EMUI 9.0.

Honor is also introducing a new technology in the V20, called Link Turbo. This technology aims to improve connectivity by seamlessly switching between Wi-Fi and LTE depending on the task. The feature uses on-device AI to analyse user behaviour and network conditions so it is able to switch between Wi-Fi and 4G networks to offer the best experience, especially while streaming videos or online games.
