HONOR View20 represents the company’s latest entrance into the flagship market, bringing top technical performance and hitting next level design and style. The cutting-edge smartphone is equipped with the world’s first high-definition 48MP rear camera.
The elite 48MP camera is powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and takes amazing pictures. The new 48MP AI Ultra Clarity mode can combine multiple 48MP images into a single 48MP photo, producing a Super 48MP Photo with superb clarity.
HONOR View20 also comes with an advanced 3D rear camera, which can scan and recognize real world objects. The AI and 3D modelling algorithm enables a series of useful and interesting applications, from making your body slimmer in photos and videos, to playing motion sensing games and calculating calories in food.
HONOR View20 is the first model to be equipped with advanced 7nm Kirin 980 AI chipset with dual NPU to overseas market; GPU Turbo 2.0, which greatly improves graphic performance; and a 4,000 mAh battery with SuperCharge.
The Kirin 980 chipset represents a 75% improvement of speed in single core performance compared to the previous generation. The Kirin 980 also includes Mali-G76 GPU to improve performance by 46%. HONOR View20’s performance has significantly increased, while reducing its energy consumption by 58%, providing a revolutionary advancement in user experience.
With the high demand for power that comes with HONOR View20, HONOR engineers developed an innovative The NINE Liquid Cooling Technology which is a highly efficient liquid cooling system that can more effectively dissipate heat for performance.
The cutting-edge smartphone is equipped with a front-facing 25MP camera integrated into the display. The innovative Full-View display provides a notch-less viewing experience and a stunning 91.8% screen-to-body ratio.
HONOR View20 has adopted a special technique enabling light to go through and reach the front-facing camera seamlessly. HONOR engineers use advanced holder with buffer design to precisely place the front camera under an ultra-small 4.5mm transparent hole on the screen. A proprietary display bonding material is used to prevent light emitted by the display from entering the camera, enabling the best photos possible from a smartphone.
Mr. George Zhao continued: “HONOR’s View series brings ground-breaking technology and flagship performance to users. With HONOR View20, we’re pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in a flagship smartphone. We are deeply proud of View20, a beautiful amalgamate of innovation, power, and function – and a phone that boldly underscores HONOR’s distinguished reputation and commitment to elegant design.”

The fourth generation of nano-vacuum coating and invisible aurora texture process create a vivid and dynamic V-shape color gradient with a gleaming effect, breaking the mold of traditional flagship smartphones in dimension and style.
At CES, HONOR has also announced a new phantom blue color for HONOR 8X which has a 2.5D double texture aurora glass body with a grating effect, providing an elegant and smooth look and feel.
