It appears the notch free party is starting to get bigger. After Samsung and Huawei announcing all screen phones with a hole cut-off for the camera, next, we have Honor with its unveil of Honor View 20. This new phone is supposed to have a small radius hole (4.5mm) in the upper left corner. Although Honor has mounted the camera “like a diamond” underneath the display, therefore maintaining the structure. In their own words: “This hole is not a traditional hole.”
This phone also comes with a 48 MP camera on the back powered by Sony’s IMX586 CMOS, with an obvious better use in lith enviroment this will not shy away from dark places as the pixel-binning technique manages to merge four 0.8um pixels into one to mimic larger 1.6um cells.
An advantage over soon to be released Xiaomi’s 48-megapixel phone is the dual-NPU (neural processing unit) and dual-ISP (image signal processor) Kirin 980, as this chip adds a 48MP AI HDR mode to help create an AI-enabled high-definition 48MP image. We’ll just have to wait and test it ourselves on this end.
Last given detail from Honor is that View 20 will come with “Link Turbo,” an AI-powered feature that allows simultaneous downloading via Wi-Fi and 4G networks for maximum band consumption. This lets the phone conveniently switch from Wi-Fi to 4G one is slower, as opposed to getting stuck to Wi-Fi, this is something that we’ve seen Samsung do.
