HONOR View20 – an unrivalled flagship smartphone with world-leading features
HONOR View20 represents the company’s latest entrance into the flagship market, bringing top technical performance and hitting next level design and style. The cutting-edge smartphone is equipped with the world’s first high-definition 48MP rear camera.
Extreme performance with latest technologies in mind
HONOR View20 is the first model to be equipped with advanced 7nm Kirin 980 AI chipset with dual NPU for the overseas market; GPU Turbo 2.0, which greatly improves graphic performance; and a 4,000 mAh battery with SuperCharge.
The Kirin 980 chipset represents a 75% improvement of speed in single core performance compared to the previous generation. The Kirin 980 also includes Mali-G76 GPU to improve performance by 46%. HONOR View20’s performance has significantly increased, while reducing its energy consumption by 58%, providing a revolutionary advancement in user experience.
HONOR View20 has adopted a special technique enabling light to go through and reach the front-facing camera seamlessly. HONOR engineers have used an advanced holder with a buffer design to precisely place the front camera under an ultra-small 4.5mm transparent hole within the screen. A proprietary display bonding material is used to prevent light emitted by the display from entering the camera, enabling the best photos possible from a smartphone.
Next generation in design and aesthetics
From a design perspective, HONOR View20 is the first smartphone to use advanced nanolithography technology to develop an invisible nano texture on the phone body. The fourth generation of nano-vacuum coating and invisible aurora texture process create a vivid and dynamic V-shape colour gradient with a gleaming effect, breaking the mould of traditional flagship smartphones in dimension and style.
The global launch of the HONOR View20 will take place in Paris on 22nd January. More product feature highlights for the global market will be unveiled at that time.
