Honor launched the Honor V20 yesterday in China. The device packed some impressive specifications and costs 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). With that said, the device is about to make its global debut as Honor View 20 on the 22nd of January in France.
Today, the company has teased the Honor View 20 in Amazon India. According to the poster, the device will retail exclusively through Amazon in India. Despite being teased, we don’t expect the handset to be available before the global launch.
Other than the change in name, the specifications of the Honor View20 resemble the Honor V20. Recalling specifications, the processor used in the handset is Huawei’s own 7nm chipset, the HiSilicon Kirin 980 which is 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 128 GB of internal storage. There’s also a special edition Moschino variant, which comes with 8 GB 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.
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 smartphone is expected to be priced below Rs.40,000 similar to the Chinese pricing. We’ll get to know the exact pricing when the brand launches the handset in India. Till then, stay tuned for updates.
