Honor View 20 is The World's First In-Screen Camera Smartphone

Huawei sub-brand Honor has just released official details about their upcoming high-end handset that has one special feature that puts it in a category all by itself.

The all-new Honor View 20 is the world's first ever In-Screen Camera smartphone, which means that it doesn't have a notch housing its front-facing shooter.

Looking at press materials posted by the company on social media, it's clear that Honor has done its best to minimize the size of the camera hole - positioned in the upper left part of the screen - so as to make it less obvious when the user is watching videos, viewing photos, or browsing apps on the device.

If you remember, a few days ago, I posted leaked images of Samsung's future Infinity Display types and one of them has an O-notch similar to this one. If those photos are for real, then it's safe to say that Honor has beaten the Korean Giant in the race to formally announce such kind of mobile screen.

Another notable feature of the Honor View 20 is its 48 MegaPixel primary rear camera that features the latest 1/2.0-inch Sony IMX586 sensor, which is large enough at to deliver clear shots in various lighting conditions.

On top of that, the main cam also benefits from Quad Bayer imaging technology that stacks four adjacent 2 x 2 pixels of similar hue into one photos to deliver images with stunning clarity in brilliance even in challenging low-light scenarios.
