Honor's 48-megapixel View 20 smartphone is now available in Singapore

Huawei sub-brand Honor launched its latest smartphone, the View 20 at an event at Marina Bay Sands today. The View 20 is an affordable flagship smartphone designed to compete against the likes of Xiaomi's Mi 8 Pro and OnePlus' OnePlus 6T. 

The View 20 has a 6.4-inch LCD display with a Full HD 2,310 x 1,080 pixels resolution. It has a hole-punch camera cutout in the top left corner for the 25-megapixel selfie camera. Thanks to its almost bezel-less design, the phone boasts an impressive 91.8 percent screen-to-body ratio! 

Design-wise, the View 20 has an interesting invisible nano coating texture developed from the use of advanced nanolithography technology. On the rear, the phone has a unique chevron-shaped color gradient with an almost holographic-type effect.

The most impressive feature on the View 20 is its 48-megapixel rear camera, which uses a Sony IMX586 CMOS image sensor that supports pixel binning for HDR 12-megapixel night shots. The camera is paired with a TOF 3D stereo camera for depth sensing, skeletal tracking and real-time motion capture.

The View 20 is powered by Huawei's 7nm Kirin 980 AI chipset with dual NPU. This is the same processor found in Huawei's flagship Mate 20 Pro. To keep the 980 cool and running efficiently, the View 20 is also equipped with an internal liquid cooling system. Inside the phone there's a 4,000mAh battery, which supports Huawei's SuperCharge quick charging.

George Zhao, CEO of Honor said, “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 Honor View 20 is available today in two variants, 6GB RAM/128GB (S$699) and the Moschino edition 8GB RAM/256GB (S$829), which comes with official Moschino-branded wallpapers. Both phones are available at Honor's online official stores on Qoo10, Lazada and Shopee, at selected Gain City outlets as well as at various authorized retail partners’ stores across Singapore. 

Customers who purchase the 6GB/128GB version from an official online outlet or at Gain City are eligible to purchase an Honor Band 4 for just S$29 (usual price: S$59), while customers who purchase the 8GB/256GB version can purchase the Honor Watch Magic for just S$99 (usual price: S$199).
