Honor V20 aka Honor View 20 was launched in China on Wednesday, after much hype created by the Huawei sub-brand.
Honor revealed all details about the smartphone, including cost and availability details. It takes on Samsung’s Galaxy A8s, which is arguably the first phone launched with a display hole for selfie camera. The Honor V20 comes with a’hole-punch’ selfie camera design, very similar to that of this Huawei Nova 4, apart from a dual rear camera set at the back. The Honor V20 will start globally as the Honor View 20, together with the first launch confirmed to occur in Paris on January 22.

This variant device comes just in Red and Blue colour options, and its very first sale will be conducted on December 28 itself.
Honor V20 is seen to game a’hole-punch’ selfie camera layout with the detector placed on the top left border of this smartphone. The cutout is just 4.5mm in size, and is quite non invasive, the company maintains. In the rear, the smartphone sports a double rear camera set aligned horizontally and a rear fingerprint sensor too. The back panel is regarded to match a glistening gradient complete and tapered edges for better gripping. Especially, the smartphone will be launched globally as the Honor View 20 on January 22. We can expect the Honor View 20 cost and specifications to be somewhat much like this Honor V20’s.
