Honor View 20 with Hole-punch Display

The Honor View 20 is Honor’s take on the Hole-Punch display. Although it has some aspects of flagship devices it is much budget friendly device.

The View 20 has a hole-punch at the left side of the device. It isn’t as small as the S10 but provides significant screen to body ratio.

The processor used is the Kirin 980 which is the flagship chip used in devices like P30. The back also has a unique pattern, fingerprint sensor and dual cameras.

The camera setup contains a 48 MP f 1.8 sensor and a depth sensor at the back and a 25 MP selfie camera at the front. It also has an IR blaster at the top for controlling devices that support it.

The display has good quality but is a LCD panel instead of being OLED. The bezels are also noticeable in the bottom and the sides compared to the S10 and misses out on some camera features like the wide lens and only provides a Time Of Flight sensor which is used for depth mapping.

The best feature of the View 20 is the pricing. It provides flagship power and great features like fast charging, great cameras, good battery life, a headphone jack, etc. for much less than a typical flagship.
