Honor View 20: A flagship designed to battle the Samsung Galaxy S10

Honor View 20: A flagship designed to battle the Samsung Galaxy S10

The Honor view 20 has everything it needs to battle the Galaxy S10 except 5G technology.  The device is supposed to launch on 22nd January but it was first teased at the CES 2019. It comes with a host of different shiny colors but my favorite color is the blue one. At the front, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S10 with the Infinity-O punch hole selfie camera. In this post, techcapon will be doing a full review of course.

Honor View 20 design and display

Like I said previously, the Honor View 20 comes with a design that looks like the Samsung Galaxy S10 with the punch hole camera at the top left corner. It has a bezeless design and the rear of this smartphone is very pretty to look at. Seriously these Chinese companies are very impressive when it comes to smartphone design. I love everything about it. The back consists of a dual camera, aligned horizontally with an LED light. Just below the camera is the fingerprint sensor. The display is a big 6.4-inch screen with 2,310-by-1,080 resolution.

This is where the true power of this device truly lies. it is loaded with a Kirin 980 chipset. The Kirin 980 is just as powerful as any chipset from Qualcomm. In terms of storage capacity, the Honor View 20 comes in two variants. First is the 6GB/128GB version and the second is the 8GB/256GB version. This device is going to be launched in Paris, however, I’m pretty sure it will not make it’s way to the United States. As you know, US government blacklisted Huawei and Honor is completely owned by Huawei.

Honor View 20 camera and battery

As a flagship device, it is using the best camera sensor in the land, the Sony’s IMX586 sensor. It has a dual camera as I said earlier. A 48MP camera and a 4-pixel-binned 12MP.  The front selfie camera is a 25MP camera. The company says the device has a 3D camera mode, I’m not sure about this though. The battery is 4,000mAh which is very strong and can withstand stress.

The device has not been launched yet so I don’t want to speculate anything. However, it is interesting to note that it will be quite expensive looking at the juicy specs. This is just another great device that will be completely out of reach for American buyers due to political problems but even if you manage to bring it into the US, which network will it work on? It is designed with the right LTE bands for Europe and Asia, not for the United States.
