Honor has announced the Honor V20 in china, the smartphone comes with the punch-hole selfie camera design, similar to that of the Huawei Nova 4, and a dual rear camera setup at the back.
If we talk about the design of the smartphone, Honor V20 boasts a premium appeal thanks to metal and glass combination design. It is the first V-series phone from the company to sport 3D glass with V-shaped texture which appears prominent when light reflects on it. The front camera is no longer present on the top bezel of the smartphone. It is now placed under the display at the top-left corner. The screen camera occupies only a small space since it measures only 4.5mm in diameter. This has allowed the phone to sport slimmer bezels around the display except for the bottom one which is slightly thick.
Honor V20 is seen to sport a punch-hole selfie camera design with the sensor placed on the top left edge of the smartphone. The cutout is just 4.5mm in size, and is very non-invasive, the company claims. At the back, the smartphone sports a dual rear camera setup aligned horizontally and a rear fingerprint sensor as well. The back panel is seen to sport a glossy gradient finish and tapered edges for better gripping.
Smartphone will be launched globally as the Honor View 20 on January 22.
