The company Honor has announced the View 20 smartphone in China, which will be presented in Paris on January 22. This means that almost a month before the announcement in Europe, there is already all the information regarding this device. Many mobile reviewers attended the Chinese press conference and are ready to share their impressions.
Design and screen
Honor View 20 follows Honor View 10. I liked the previous model, but the next device takes design and functionality to a new level. The body is made of metal with a special nano-coating on the back. The V logo is laser engraved under the surface. Available in black, red and blue.
The smartphone was the debut of All-View Display technology, where a hole for the camera is located in the left corner instead of the usual wide cutout. The hole diagonal is 4.5 mm, inside the camera is 25 MP. The camera quality shouldn't be affected by the new screen design. From a technical point of view, this is an interesting panel. It belongs to the category LCD, 6.4 inches diagonal, resolution 2310 x 1080 pixels. The screen-to-body ratio is 91.8%.
Hole screens like this have only recently started to appear. Honor is far from the only manufacturer of such smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy A8s smartphone has already been announced, the Galaxy S10 may also be with the same technology.
