When thinking of the industry’s big boys, Huawei is definitely in the top five. With their constant innovations, believe me when I say they should be in the top three. Well, the first two slots have been hijacked by Samsung and Apple (similar to football’s Ronaldo and Messi). The primary matter at hand is the Huawei Honor View 20, the first 2019 flagship phone from Huawei.
From different perspectives, the Honor View 20 steals the show entirely. Talk about the punch-hole camera that’s not so punchy, 48MP camera, 3D ToF camera, SuperCharge support, and more technical jargon.
Notwithstanding, you’ll be having the phone’s features discussed before you right away.
Huawei Honor View 20 Quick Review
Unlike most smartphones, Honor V20 (an alias of Honor View 20) has its selfie camera in the top left corner. A lot of considerations were put in place before the final position was actualised. First, a survey was carried out about the design wherein the punch-hole emerged victoriously.
Next up, the position of the camera was up for the survey. The options were either the top right corner, centre or top left corner. The top left corner was the most preferred because it provided little or no limitations when gaming or taking a picture.
But then, the camera isn’t physically penetrating the screen because screen’s light could disturb the front “phonography.” In that stead, Huawei implemented pixel transition technology and 18 refined layers to make this 25MP camera.
This camera only takes 4.5mm off the smartphone screen leaving over 85% of the screen for use. It works with 1080 x 2310 pixels resolution for its quality.
On the flip side, a 48MP shooter serves the primary role of photography. It is supported with 3D ToF camera for 3D images.
Kirin 980 chipset powers the smartphone alongside 6GB RAM. Another option of 8GB is available for more fluency in operations. Although there’s no expansive capacity, ROM options of 128GB or 256GB can store numerous types of files conveniently.
