Honor debuts its 48MP View20 smartphone

Honor has officially unveiled the View20, its new mid-range range smartphone which boasts the world’s first 48-megapixel rear camera along with a 24-megapixel front camera.

With a £499.99 / €569 price tag, the Honor View20 should appeal to photographers not only because of its high-resolution cameras but also due to a new 48MP AI Ultra Clarity mode that takes a series of images at 48-megapixel resolution and stacks the sharpest details from each into one image.

The View20 also employs a 7nm Kirin 980 AI chipset as well as Triple-Antenna Wi-Fi technology, which prevents the signal from weakening when a user’s hands cover the receiver.

Other photographic features include a 960fps slow-motion video moe, f/1.8 aperture, flash and a new AI HDR mode.

Honor, which is a sub-brand of smartphone maker Huawei, has priced the View20 competitively at just half the cost of the iPhone XS Max.
