Honor today launched their Honor V20 in China. In the past few months, a lot of leaks have surfaced online regarding the specifications of the device. A few months back, the handset made its first online appearance through certification from China’s 3C and CMIIT agencies.
The main feature of the phone is the punch hole camera on the display, which we saw in Samsung Galaxy A8s & Huawei Nova 4, which launched earlier this month. It is a 6.4 inch FHD+ LCD display with the hole for camera on the left side on the phone.
The handset is powered by Huawei’s own 7nm chipset, the HiSilicon Kirin 980, the same chipset used in Huawei’s own flagships Huawei Mate 20 series, Huawei Nova 4 and Honor’s own Honor Magic 2 flagship.
There are three variants for the device. The base model will feature 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, another variant with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage while the higher variant will have 8 GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There’s also a special edition Moschino variant, which comes with 8GB RAM & 256GB internal storage.
The Honor V20 will harness the power of AI for enhancing the camera performance. The phone also has Huawei’s Link Turbo technology, which helps to achieve faster transfer rates by combining LTE and Wi-Fi networks.
Triple horizontally stacked rear cameras will be present on the handset where the primary sensor is a 48 MP Sony IMX586 sensor with support for up to 960 fps slow-motion recording. The secondary camera is a 3D TOF sensor instead of a depth sensor, telephoto sensor or wide angle cameras like other Huawei or Honor phones. If that TOF sensor sounds familiar, it’s the one similar to the secondary camera we saw in Oppo R17 Pro and Vivo NEX Dual Display edition.
The in-display camera will have a 25 MP sensor for capturing pixel-perfect selfies. There is be a whopping 4000 mAh battery coupled with 22.5W fast-charging.
In terms of software, it runs on EMUI 9 based on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. The leaked poster shows the smartphone in three color options- Red, Blue, and Black.
The pricing starts from 2,999 Yuan (approximately Rs.31,000) for the 6/128GB variant and 3,499 Yuan (approximately Rs.36,000) for the 8/128GB variant. And the Moschino variant is priced at 3,999 Yuan (approximately Rs.41,000).
