We’re here at Salle Pleyel, Paris to witness the gorgeous and grand global launch of HONOR’s brand new flagship, the HONOR View20. Let’s go through a few features to take note here. We have already published the full in-depth review of the HONOR View20 here.
Firstly, obviously the HONOR View20 has the tiny under-screen selfie camera that is actually found at the top left corner of the smartphone itself. This is the first ever smartphone from HONOR that has such a beautiful display. That cutout is so tiny that I can ignored it without knowing after using it for less than 5 minutes.
Secondly, is the beautiful back glass that is enhanced with nanotextures to create an aurora reflection effect. It’s gorgeous and it is available in a total of 4 different colors – the Sapphire Blue which we have for review, and also the Midnight Black. Then comes the Moschino co-designed colors which are the Phantom Blue and Phantom Red. These two Phantom colors have an even more intense aurora texture and looks absolutely fantastic.
Then comes the cameras. the HONOR View20 is the first ever to arrive to the world with the Sony IMX586 – a 48MP camera sensor for smartphones. This means that the HONOR View20 can take a lot of great pictures already – combined with the camera features in terms of software that HONOR has baked into the HONOR View20, it can take a lot of fantastic pictures. Check out our album of pictures taken with the HONOR View20 here.
The HONOR View20 also comes with a 3D TOF camera system. Combined with the Kirin 980 chipset, the HONOR View20 can provide accurate real-time 3D AR characters superimposed onto the camera in real time. Then, you can record a video while dancing with the character.
For mobile gamers, here’s a treat for you too. HONOR has a partnership with Epic Games to bring you 60FPS version of Fortnite for Android which George Zhao, the president of HONOR, has stated that Fortnite for Android is running at 59.13FPS on the View20 right now.
