The machine is but to be launched to the large viewers, however we received an unique peek of the brand new machine. It is going to be the primary smartphone with a 48 MP digicam, implementing the Sony IMX586 sensor.
One other breakthrough the Huawei subsidiary launched is Magic Turbo – a know-how permitting simultaneous Wi-Fi + 4G use, so the connection will not be choking over poor public networks.
Honor skipped on revealing any specs and the unit we held was in a pre-production case, hiding the design of the telephone. The corporate did say the display screen of the View 20 could have a 4.5 mm cutout for the digicam, with the display screen now known as Full-View Show 3.0.
The chipset might be Kirin 980 with its dual-NPU to deliver 48 MP AI HDR mode that Honor claims can match single-lens reflex cameras.
