December 26, 2018 Honor will release the Honor V20 . Furthermore, on January 22, 2019, Honor will introduce the global version of the Honor V20 which comes as the Honor View 20 . Interestingly, taking a place in Hong Kong, Honor has recently opened a View 20 window.
One interesting thing, the Honor View 20 will be the first smartphone to come with a 48 MP camera support. Yes! It was also stated that the camera was supported by Sony’s lens sensor, the IMX586. Surely this is an interesting innovation offered by Honor.
Another breakthrough introduced by this one umbrella smartphone manufacturer with Huawei is the Turbo Link . This is a brand new technology that allows the use of Wi-Fi connectivity and 4G networks simultaneously.
Although showing a bit of the design of the prototype, Honor unfortunately does not at all mention the hardware specifications embedded in the smartphone. Honor only says that the View 20 will have a 4.5 mm cut for the camera and Display Display 3.0 FullView .
But not a few who estimate that the Honor View 20 will come with a Kirin 980 chipset with dual NPU. It is reasonable because this smartphone will carry an AI 48 MP HDR mode that is claimed to be able to match a single lens reflex camera.
Speaking of cameras, the Sony IMX586 CMOS is a 1/2 inch (0.8 um / pixel) sensor and has a Quad Bayer color arrangement, which has 2 x 2 pixels that are close together in the same color. In theory, View 20 should be able to take 12 MP images with low noise in low-light conditions.
Following in the footsteps of Google Pixel 3 Series , it seems that Honor is very confident with the ability of a single camera embedded in View 20. That is, Honor is not provoked to package this smartphone with the support of two cameras or three rear cameras like other smartphones.
