Honor View20 features and specifications
Honor View20 has been launched in two variants - 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. It is powered by Kirin 980 AI processor and sports world's first 7nm mobile AI chipset with world’s first dual NPU. The technology improves phone speed by 20%, power efficiency by 40% as compared to the 10nm chipset.
It also has a 3D camera which is capable of creating a new dimension in photography and videography, and brings greater usability and fun. The camera collects information on the shapes of objects based upon the time-of-flight of light signals to enable depth sensing, skeletal tracking and real-time motion capture.
Gaming Console killer
Another striking feature about Honor View20's powerful camera is that it can turn into a motion-controlled gaming console, allowing you to play 3D motion games like never before. The camera supports Fancy Skiing and Fancy Darts which can be downloaded from Google play store.
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has introduced world's first in-screen front camera design with Honor View20. It comes with a 25MP AI camera on the front and 91.8% screen-to-touch body ratio. It is also the first smartphone to use nanolithography to create a nanotexture - a vivid and dynamic V-shape color gradient with gleaming effect on the body.
