HONOR View20 now available on O2

HONOR officially launched its latest flagship phone in China – the HONOR View20 back in December, equipped with the world’s first rear 48MP and 3D camera system and a front-facing 25MP camera integrated into the display.

The HONOR View20  is now available to O2 customers and comes with an initial gift of a stylish HONOR Watch Magic in black upon purchase of the HONOR View20 on O2 Refresh’s customisable tariffs.

With O2’s customisable plans, customers have the freedom to tailor an individual plan to suit their needs and lifestyle. Customers can choose how much they want to pay upfront, how much they want to spread the remaining cost of their device from anywhere between three and 36 months (in one-month increments) and their data allowance. Customers also have the option of flexing the data allowance they originally chose up and down every month.

The HONOR VIew20’s All-View display design doesn’t impact the display function – instead, it allows a notch-less viewing experience, achieves a stunning 91.8% body-to-screen ratio, and enables users to take the best photos possible, all at the same time.

From a design perspective, HONOR View20 breaks the mold of traditional flagship smartphones in both dimension and style. It is the first smartphone to use advanced nanolithography technology to develop an invisible nano texture on the body. The fourth generation of nano-vacuum coating and invisible aurora texture process create a vivid and dynamic V-shape color gradient with gleaming effect.

Furthermore, HONOR has unveiled a crossover collaboration with Italian fashion brand MOSCHINO and launched the HONOR View20 MOSCHINO joint design edition.

World’s first 48MP AI Ultra Clarity and TOF 3D camera

For smartphone photography, nothing is more important than photo quality and clarity, and HONOR View20 is bringing these measures to new highs. The rear camera of the HONOR View20 is the first ever to be powered by the Sony IMX586 stacked CMOS image sensor, which features 48 effective megapixels on a 1/2-inch sensor unit to deliver excellent image quality.

As a result, you’ll see richer details and more vibrant colors in the AI-optimized shots taken with the HONOR View20. In addition, the dual-NPU and dual-ISP Kirin 980 chipset has improved the image and camera processing capabilities of the phone by 134% and 46% respectively.

Combined with the power of the camera’s 48MP sensor, the result is unprecedented mobile photography potential.

Another rear camera is a TOF 3D camera, which makes the phone capable of creating a new dimension in photography and videography that brings greater usability and fun to users. It can calculate distance based upon the time-of-flight of a light signal, and has functions including depth sensing, skeletal tracking and real-time motion capture.

The TOF 3D camera can turn HONOR View20 into a motion-controlled gaming console, and allow you to play 3D motion games like never before. In addition, it can also let 3D characters dance following your gestures on your phone, and you can share these funny dancing videos with your friends.

All-View display with in-screen camera

The notched display, one of 2018’s most popular trends, was developed to satisfy the demand for a higher screen-to-body ratio. However, there are limits to what can be done with this solution. Just as we are eager to see how smartphone manufacturers are going to take the design a step further, the HONOR View20 comes on stage, sporting an extraordinary All-View display with an in-screen front camera, heralding a new era of display design.

A super small hole with a diameter of only 4.5mm instead of 6.0mm is created at the top left corner to house the front-facing camera and making for a considerable increase in display area. Instead of drilling a hole that penetrates through all layers of the screen with only a glass panel covering the camera, HONOR retains a few layers by adopting an extremely complex 18-layer technology stack.

This technique effectively reduces the impact on the display structure to improve durability and cuts down the interference of the light from the display to improve overall photo quality. The 18 layers of complex processes are refined, so that the display area of a new screen camera is significantly reduced, bringing users a near 100% full screen experience.

HONOR View20 in Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black is now available to O2 customers online and in-store from today, Wednesday 23rdJanuary, on O2’s custom plans, starting from £33.03 per month, £10 upfront for 1GB data.

O2 customers who purchase the device directly from O2 until 6th February will also be able to claim a stylish HONOR Watch Magic in black for free.
