It can be noted that the Android flagship mobile was originally announced in China last month. Honor View20 is touted to be the world's first phone to boasts 48MP rear shooter with Sony IMX586 sensor and TOF (Time of Flight) 3D camera.T hey are coupled with the Artificial Intelligence (AI) computing power which is capable of recognising over 60 categories and 1500 scenarios in real time and graphics processing power enabled by the dual-ISP and dual-NPU of Kirin 980 AI chipset, can provide users with unmatched photo quality and clarity. It is also capable of capturing slow-motion videos at 960 fps (frames per seconds).

Another notable attribute of the Honor View20 is its screen. It boasts All-view display with world-first, in-screen front camera design. Honor achieved this marvellous feat by using an advanced 18-layer technology stack method that carefully embeds the front camera in the display area of the screen, achieving the screen to body ratio of 91.8%.

It comes in three variants— 6GB LPDDR4X RAM+128GB storage, 8GB LPDDR4X RAM + 128GB storage and 8GB LPDDR4X RAM + 256GB storage in China, but we are not sure if the company has plans to launch all the variants.
