HONOR VIEW 20: Hands-On Review

Luke Gardner - 9 months ago

Honor has today officially revealed its latest flagship smartphone, the View 20, and we’ve had hands-on for the last couple of weeks to find out if it packs the punch of its competition. Having spent the day in Paris today, for the official launch event, our review video is here, along with full specs and pricing. Read on for more. 

Sporting a brand-new design, the key objectives of the HONOR VIEW 20, front-runner from the HONOR range are performance, style and photography and clearly, our main interests lie within the imaging capabilities of this device.

This is the first flagship device to come from the doors of HONOR since the VIEW 10, which was almost a year ago, now. This was a handset that sported the first Kirin 970 chip along with the first AI camera in the smartphone brand’s range.

HONOR VIEW 20 Key Features:

  • 48-megapixel rear camera, [with Sony IMX sensor offering 4-in-1 ‘Super-Pixels’
  • 25-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 960 frames per second in slow-mo
  • 6.4″ Ultra-Wide display offering 91.8% of screen – achieved largely by the All-View, [notchless] display with hole punch for front-facing camera
  • AI Ultra Clarity
  • AI Stabilisation
  • Semantic Image Optimisation
  • Kirin 960 Chip
  • Android 9.0
  • 4000 mAh battery

The new leading handset from the Chinese manufacturer comes packed with buzzy AI-photo features. Beyond its high megapixel count, clever stabilisation and high-speed, high-performance in general; the HONOR VIEW 20 also promises to deliver a full 60 scene recognitions within 1500 categories!

The new Kirin 980 chip promises to deliver speedier scene recognition for AI photography.

The new HONOR VIEW 20 is available from today and comes in two versions:
6GB RAM with 128GB of storage capacity – £499
8GB RAM with 256GB of storage capacity – £579
