Honor View 20: The Notch Trend is Over
February 20th, 2019, Author / Editor: Tobias Massow / MyBusinessFuture
Once again, the Chinese manufacturer Honor has changed the rules of the smartphone industry with its new model Honor View 20. A hole in the screen and a completely unusual design. We were at the release in Paris and will let you in on the latest news.
6,4-inch display – and you can feel every bit of it. Honor just ended the notch trend – In-Screen camera is the new thing. Speaker, flash and sensors have been pushed out into the extremely thin edge of the screen. It pretty much doesn’t have an edge. The question we were concerned with: Isn’t a camera in the screen really annoying? The answer is no. The In-Screen camera has been placed nicely in the far corner of the screen. Even in full-screen mode it seems to blend in and leave room for the spacious display.
The glass back of the smartphone was designed by the Italian brand Moshino and it’s a real eye catcher. The so-called Aurora Nano design reflects differently depending on how the light falls. Whether in red, black or blue the View 20 back cover is a real treat. Although the phone is fairly large due to the giant screen it still perfectly sits in the user’s hand. Unlike its predecessor, the edges of the screen on the Honor View 20 are not bent, but that’s simply a matter of taste. All components on the phone feel very qualitative and Honor has placed the fingerprint sensor on the back as we know it.
Honor View 20: Camera and Display
With 48 Megapixels and Sony’s newest 3D sensors, the Honor View 20 takes extremely good pictures. The AI detects objects, animals and humans and tailors the cameras settings to achieve the best results on every shot. Even in night mode the colours still radiate, and it creates exciting contrasts. Also, the 25 Megapixel front camera produces good results. The downside: it smoothens faces a bit too much, even when beauty mode is turned off.
A great design and a good camera aren’t enough to justify the price of 570 Euros. We were glad to see that the Honor View 20 also brings the necessary technical stats. 6 to 8 GB RAM and the companies own Kirin 980 processors are proof that the budget wasn’t completely spent on Italian designers. The phone is optionally equipped with 128 GB or 256 GB storage space. Sadly there is no SD-Slot for those that need that extra storage space. This might come as pleasant surprise: Honor did not leave out the slowly dying 3,5 mm headphone jack nor the dual-sim slot.
Thanks to the Quick Charge feature the phone is charged within 1.5 hours. To get to this point you’ll have to use the 4.000-mAh-battery for a about two days.
With an extraordinary design and the In-Screen camera the Honor View 20 is probably the most modern phone on the market when it comes to looks. The high performance, powerful battery and camera make it a great value for price. Honor’s new smartphone can be purchase from 570 Euros.
