Not to be out-done by the launch of the Samsung Galaxy A8s, Huawei has unveiled the Honor View 20 which also sports a punch-hole display cutout for the phone’s front-facing camera. Like Samsung’s phone, the View 20 has a punch-hole in the top left corner of the display. The only real difference between the two is the size of the hole – 4.5mm on the Honor View 20 compared to 6mm on the Samsung Galaxy A8s.
The Honor View 20 features high-end specs like a 48MP camera powered by a Sony IMX586 CMOS which will use Pixel-binning in low light situations to merge four of its 0.8um pixels to simulate a single 1.6um pixel which would allow the sensor to capture more light. The phone will also be powered by Huawei’s Kirin 980 chipset, making it just as powerful as the Mate 20 Pro. It will also have a new “Link Turbo” mode which allows the device to connect to WiFi and 4G networks simultaneously. Link Turbo promises to deliver significantly faster download speeds while also allowing the device to automatically switch between WiFi and 4G based on network speeds and latency.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy A8s, the Honor View 20 wasn’t fully unveiled today. Many of its specifications were not revealed as Honor will be saving those for an official December 26th debut in Beijing and January 22nd in Paris.
