Honor View 20 With 48 MP Camera Launched In Hong Kong

Chinese smartphone brand Honor Monday launched a new smartphone that comes with 48 megapixel camera. Named Honor View 20, the smartphone is touted to be world’s first phone with 48 megapixel camera.

“The camera is the first to make possible high-definition 48 effective megapixels photography on a smartphone, delivering top quality images with more and better details even when zoomed in,” Honor claimed in a statement.

The camera comes with Sony IMX586 sensor coupled with the AI computing power and graphic processing power enabled by the dual-ISP and dual-NPU of Kirin 980 chipset, which automatically performs multi-frame image processing.

Launched initially in Hong Kong and is planned for a global journey later, the Honor View 20 comes with three world-first technologies – the 48 mega pixel rear camera, the HONOR All-View Display and the Link Turbo.

The Honor View 20 also offers full-view display experience with the introduction of the company’s All-View Display. The front camera is built on to the screen of the phone and is achieved by an extremely complex 18-layer technology stack that carefully embeds the front camera in the display area of the screen, extending the display area to almost 100%.

The third technology that Honor introduces with this phone is the Link Turbo. Leveraging AI and big data technologies, Link Turbo automatically analyze users’ usage models and network conditions to switch seamlessly between Wi-Fi or 4G networks and boost downloading speed by simultaneously adopting both networks.

“As a trendsetter, HONOR continues to push the limits of innovation and product craftsmanship, we endeavor to continually deliver technology breakthroughs to the world and deliver exceptional experiences for our users,” said Jimmy Xiong, General Manager of HONOR Product.

As a branding campaign for the Honor View 20, the Company has also collaborated with top Malaysian artist Red Hong Yi to create an exclusive artwork, Aurora, made with 2,000 recycled glass back pieces from HONOR smartphones. The 15 nano-membranes that coat the glass backs can reflect and refract light as it passes through and just one single dust particle will ruin the whole set of membranes. For every five membranes made, one must be discarded. Inspired by the uniqueness of these recycled glass backs, Red created Aurora and turned what is considered industry waste into modern art.
