Honor V20 has unveiled at an event in HongKong on Monday. It is the successor of Honor V10 globally known as View 10. Honor V20 is the company’s first smartphone to sport an in-display selfie camera and a 48-megapixel rear camera. The 48-megapixel rear camera of the smartphone will come with the Sony IMX586 sensor with AI computing power and graphics processing. It is touted as the “world’s first in-screen camera smartphone”.
The phone will be officially announced on December 26 in China as Honor V20 while the global launch is scheduled for January 22 in Paris as the company’s global Twitter handle revealed. V20 price has not been revealed at the announcement in HongKong. The Honor V20 will be powered by HiSilicon 980 SoC with dual-NPU and dual-ISP for performing multi-frame image processing.
The company said that the screen of the V20 will have a 4.5mm cutout for the camera with the screen now called Full-View Display 3.0. This has been achieved with the help of an 18-layer technology that extends the display area to almost 100 percent. Honor V20 will also feature Link Turbo which is said to be an upgraded version of the GPU Turbo technology.
Link Turbo automatically analyzes users’ usage models and network conditions to switch seamlessly between Wi-Fi or 4G networks and boost downloading speed by simultaneously adopting both networks, so the connection is not chocked over a poor public network with the help of AI.
