Honor view 20 the first Smartphone with a Punch Hole Display

Honor view 20

We saw Smartphones evolve a lot in 2018, ranging from a full touch screen display to a notch style. And, now we have the Honor View 20 which supposedly is the first Smartphone to features a punch hole display located on the top-left curved edge of the phone.

We were aware of the punch hole display but, many thought it would be first seen with the Samsung Galaxy S10 according to photo renders and leaks. But you know what? Honor being a Chinese sub-brand probably thought of stealing the spotlight with their own flagship- Honor View 20 featuring the punch hole display.  The phone is currently an Amazon exclusive available for pre-booking, the Honor View 20 is priced at INR 40,000 (approximately $561 USD)

Camera performance of Honor View 20


On the Rear we have a huge 48 MP camera lens (with an aperture of f/1.8), the camera captures excellent shots with well-defined details and true color. Also, on the rear, the 48 MP camera is paired with a 3D sensor for depth-sensing which is capable of capturing great Portrait shots (bokeh mode). The front punch hole is embedded with a  25 MP selfie shooter that captures some great clicks.

If capturing great moments aren’t your thing, playing around with the camera features like - ISO control, Digital Zoom, Face Detection, Exposure Compensation, Auto-Flash, etc. will surely change the way you use the camera in a Smartphone. The BSI (Black-Illuminated sensor) and Exmor-RS CMOS sensors help in capturing excellent low -light shots while various other shooting modes like HDR is designed to capture shots with an image resolution of 8000 by 6000 pixels. Hence, the Honor View 20 is one the best flagship Camera Smartphone one could find right now. At times, the Honor View 20 performs better than OnePlus 6T’s camera.

Display and Design of the Honor View 20


The 6.4-inch bezel-less and no-notch display look super neat with the resolution of 1080 by 2310 pixels. The featured punch hole display is an IPS LCD. Personally, I would have loved the Honor View 20 with an OLED panel instead. Why you ask? Eh! just a personal preference. Overall, the Honor View 20  display has great viewing angles with vibrant colors.

Now, moving on to the design of the Honor View 20. The body of the device is made out of metal. Coated with a 300-nanometer of super-micro pattern on the back that shows a V pattern when exposed to light. On the bottom, there is a dedicated 3.5 mm headphone jack, 3.1 USB type C charging port and an IR blaster on the top. On the other hand, OnePlus 6T was sold without an IR blaster or a headphone jack.

Build quality of the phone is brilliant, with the aluminum frame ensuring rigidity, a functional rear-facing fingerprint sensor.

Processor, RAM & Battery performance of the Honor View 20


The brain of the Honor View 20 is the  Kirin 980 SOC. Which due to its 7nm architecture consumes less power but great performance. 8GB of RAM is sufficient enough to handle all kinds of apps, multitasking is also smooth and there is hardly any noticeable lag in a day to day performance. Though, the lack of a micro SD card is kind of a bummer but, 256 GB is a lot of internal storage to deal with in the first place. Finally, powering this beautiful device is a 4000 mAh battery, more than enough to get you through the day. The included charger of the Honor View 20 is a fast charger with an output of 40 watts leaving behind the dash charger by Oneplus.

Drawbacks of Honor View 20


The Honor View 20 is the next big step in 2019’s Smartphone technology. As this device is the first in its kinds it still has some drawbacks-

  • Lack of a dedicated micro SD slot
  • A finger magnet Glossy back
  • Little dark smudges around the punch hole camera module
