“The Honor V20 smartphone has been confirmed to arrive with a 48-megapixel main sensor and HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC”
The Honor V20 smartphone – the Chinese version of Honor View 20 – is slated to launch next week. Ahead of next week’s launch, press renders of the Honor V20 have surfaced on Chinese microblogging site Weibo, revealing its front camera and battery details. The leak reveals that the Honor V20 will flaunt an impressive 25-megapixel sensor in the display hole, while a beefy 4,000mAh battery will fuel the device.
The images also talk about the 48-megapixel rear-facing camera and Link Turbo feature that is said to use both 4G and Wi-Fi network simultaneously to boost download speed. While the Honor V20 is launching in China on December 26th, the Honor View 20 will be introduced on January 22nd in Paris.
The next-gen V/ View-series smartphone from the vendor is expected to be an upper mid-range offering. The device is confirmed to arrive with Huawei’s latest 7nm HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC that comes with dual NPU (neural processing units) which promises to deliver 46 percent faster camera processing, 23 percent greater recording power efficiency, and 33 percent improved recording efficiency. The SoC will reportedly be paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage. Furthermore, it’ll have an edge-to-edge screen with no hindrance from bezels or notch whatsoever.
An image of Honor V20/ View 20 further suggests that the main 48-megapixel sensor will be paired with two more sensors on the rear panel in a similar fashion as the Huawei P20 Pro (review). It has also revealed that the company could announce a Maserati version of the handset. Meanwhile, there are rumours that the Honor V20 could come with an in-display fingerprint sensor and a starting price of RMB 2,799 (~Rs 30,000) for the entry-level model.
