Honor View 20 officially announced
Honor officially took the wraps off its newest smartphone in China and it’s called the View 20.
The device sports a unique refraction back that emits a V-design when hit by light at a certain angle. It’s equipped with Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin flagship chipset and features AI Vision technology on its dual rear-camera setup led by a huge 48-megapixel Sony sensor.
The View 20 also touts to sport an in-screen selfie camera setup and has a smaller cutout when compared to its competition — 4.5mm vs 6mm. This is said to be achieved by utilizing advanced lithography processes to create a transparent hole for the camera and with the proper bonding material, all layers are designed so they don’t let light bleed into the sensor. This makes the camera not physically penetrate the display and keep its seamless feel while maintaining a number of transparent layers to protect the sensor, still achieving its purpose of capturing clear selfie shots.
