The Honor View 20 should be the company’s first novelty in 2019. After the Chinese premiere on December 26, when all the specifications of the smartphone become known, it will be a month before the release of the international version. It is she who will get to the Russian market in February-March.
The question of prices in our country remains open. Insiders claim that the cost of the international version will be $ 400 (26.6 thousand rubles). Considering that Huawei is trying not to raise prices for Russia, then Honor View 20 can keep within 30 thousand rubles.

Honor View 20 Review Screen:
The Honor View 20 was the world’s first announced phone with an Infinity-O screen, even though this technology was first introduced by Samsung.The smartphone will receive a display with minimal frames.
The only cutout is round for the front camera. The manufacturer has not yet disclosed detailed information about the screen, it is known that this is a 6.41-inch screen with a resolution of 2310 x 1080 pixels. The question remains – IPS or AMOLED-matrix is used in the View 20.
Honor View 20 Review Housing:
At the preliminary presentation, Honor View 20 was shown only in the hands of the presenter. The journalists were able to touch the device with an unusual case that hides the design and materials of the case. However, much is known even now.
For example, the fact that the front camera on the screen is located under an 18-layer coating. Huawei has called it the third generation of “frameless” format.
On the appeared renders of covers for the novelty, the cover of the smartphone is visible, on which there is no separate fingerprint scanner, which hints at screen fingerprinting. In addition, two colors of the Honor View 20 are “blown out” – gold and a gradient violet-blue. True, not yet clear what material the cover will be made of – glass or plastic.
Processor, Memory, Communications
The Honor View 20 will receive a top-end Huawei-made HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor. This 7-nm flagship processor is installed in the Huawei Mate 20 and the Honor Magic 2 slider. The RAM and internal memory have not yet been announced, but there is no doubt that the volume will be at the top-end devices next year.
The communication capabilities of the device are also beyond doubt – here are 4G, Bluetooth 5.0, and dual-band Wi-Fi. Speaking of the internet, Honor will support Link Turbo, which lets you download data over Wi-Fi and cellular data at the same time at maximum speeds. By the way, the smartphone will have both a USB Type-C connector and a 3.5 mm audio jack, which is becoming a rarity among modern smartphones.
Honor View 20 Review Camera:
The second feature of the smartphone will be the main camera, which will be equipped with a new Sony IMX586 sensor with a record resolution of 48 megapixels. This camera is capable of taking excellent pictures in poor lighting conditions. The pixel size will be only 0.8 microns.
They are combined into four, as a result, the size of such a “quadruple” pixel will be 1.6 microns, and the resolution of the final image is 12 megapixels. They will not forget about the second sensor for bokeh, but information about it, as well as about the “front camera”, has not yet been disclosed.
At the preliminary presentation, nothing said about the battery. But we can assume that the phone will receive fast charging, like all the latest flagships of Honor and Huawei.
