Samsung announced their A8s today which is was bound to become the first device with the in-display hole camera but Honor didn’t let Samsung steel the show because they also announced their latest Honor View 20 which is launching December 30, Honor View 20 may become first device from Huawei Technologies with In-Display camera which was previously thought to be Nova 4.
Honor View 20 has some other exciting features beside its design mainly the rear camera Yes you heard it correct “rear camera” not cameras, the device under discussion comes with a single camera at the back which is going to be 48Megapixels which is insane for a mobile device. Now the biggest downside of more pixels in a small sensor is low quality shot during night, which is tackeld by using pixel binning which will combine 4pixels into one to get better low-light shot and daylight shots will utlize the full mega-pixel count. The senser in the device is going to be Sony’s IMX586 CMOS, Sony has recently been making some of the best sensors in the game.
Internally this device is coming with flagship specification starting with Kirin 980 SOC which is a 7nm chip used in Mate 20 Pro also, this chip will allow better image-processing by utilising the NPU.Some camera modes found on Huawei Mate20Pro will also trickle down for this device mainly AI-HDR and scene recognition.
The front of the device has a massive display with front camera located on the top left corner of the phone, for the camera a hole is present in the screen and Honor was very keen to point out that their hole was smaller then Samsung A8s. The Megapixel count for the front camera looks to be 25 Mega-pixels.
For other specs like RAM,storage and battery nothing was confirmed, more importantly the body of the device was hidden which suggests some cool looking design coming to market
