While we don’t know as a lot concerning the handset as you may anticipate for a telephone that’s this near launching, some information and rumors are rising.
We’ve rounded up the most effective data we may discover from the online’s rumor mll and lined the important thing elements beneath, together with data on while you’ll truly have the ability to get your palms on the Honor View 20.

Honor View 20 launch date and worth
The Honor View 20 is about to be introduced on January 22, as Honor has sent out invites for a launch occasion on that date.
Sure, whereas the View 20 isn’t named the corporate has mentioned that this can be a high-end telephone, and given the timing the Honor View 20 is the plain candidate. After all, the Honor View 10 was introduced in December 2017 then went on sale in January 2018.
As for what it should value, there’s no information there, however it’s more likely to value a minimum of as a lot because the Honor View 10, which launched for £449 (round $580, AU$800).
Honor View 20 design and display screen
- An all-screen entrance
- A 1080 x 2310 decision
We don’t know a lot concerning the design of the Honor View 20, however it’s more likely to have an all-screen look on the entrance with minimal bezels. Why? Because because the invite above exhibits, it appears set to have a pinhole digital camera cut-out within the prime left nook, as an alternative of the much-maligned notch.
This transfer would additionally possible strip out a whole lot of the highest bezel. It would even be the primary Honor telephone with such a design – though the Huawei Nova 4 (from Honor’s father or mother firm) may get there first.
Having mentioned that, in response to some sources, the 2 telephones may truly simply be a single mannequin, with the Nova 4 launching internationally because the Honor View 20.
If so, then the picture beneath (supposedly of the Huawei Nova 4) may present the brand new View 20, that means there’s little or no bezel on the telephone.
A consumer agent profile noticed by NashvilleChatter in the meantime factors to the display screen having a 1080 x 2310 decision, which might be an ever so slight enhance on the 1080 x 2160 decision of the Honor View 10 and would trace at an extended display screen ratio.
Beyond all that, we are able to guess that the Honor View 20 may share some design parts with the View 10, which had a steel rear, though the bezels this time round are more likely to be smaller. 2017’s View additionally had a 5.99-inch display screen, so the View 20’s display screen will possible be a minimum of that dimension.
It’s price noting additionally that, previous to Honor sending out an occasion invite and all however confirming a pinhole digital camera within the course of, there have been some earlier leaked photos shared on SlashLeaks supposedly displaying the telephone, which as an alternative had a teardrop notch.
You can see these beneath and it’s technically nonetheless potential that these are correct, as Honor hasn’t confirmed the title of the telephone we’ll be seeing in January.
So on that foundation it is potential that one thing else can be introduced with a pinhole digital camera and the Honor View 20 actually can have a teardrop notch, however we doubt it given the invite.
Honor View 20 digital camera and battery
- A pinhole digital camera
- Strong low gentle expertise
- Fast charging
We’re kind of sure that the Honor View 20 can have a pinhole front-facing digital camera, because of the occasion invite.

Alternatively, it may very well be merely referencing that the pinhole digital camera permits for extra display screen actual property to be proven, which additionally makes a whole lot of sense.
We don’t know the specs of the digital camera, however the Honor View 10 had a dual-lens rear digital camera with each a 16MP colour lens and a 20MP black and white sensor, so the View 20 could have an analogous setup, although most likely with some upgrades.
Given that Huawei’s (Honor’s father or mother firm’s) flagship vary now consists of a number of telephones with three rear cameras it’s potential that this may get a 3rd digital camera too.
Indeed, some websites (similar to 91mobiles) are reporting that the Honor View 20 can have three rear lenses, probably a 16MP/24MP/16MP combo, however it’s not clear the place that web site is getting its data from, so we would take that with a pinch of salt.
Bloomberg has additionally reported that Huawei will quickly launch a telephone with a digital camera that may precisely decide distances between objects and create 3D fashions of them to be used in augmented actuality.
Given the timing of the launch it is potential that this digital camera can be discovered on the Honor View 20.
We haven’t heard a lot concerning the battery but, however because of a certification with a Chinese physique, famous by GSMArena, we do know that it’s going to most likely assist 22.5W quick charging.
As for the scale of the battery, it was a good 3,750mAh within the Honor View 10, so a big one is probably going.
