At an event in China yesterday, Huawei sub-brand Honor launched the Honor V20 – its first smartphone with 48 MP rear camera and an in-display selfie camera. The V20 will go on sale in China from December 28. And, it will also be launched in India, but, under the moniker of View20.
Amazon India has teased the launch of View20 by setting up a page on its website for the smartphone. The page also reveals that the View20 will be sold exclusively through Amazon in India. However, the page doesn’t reveal the launch date of View20 in India. Well, the View20 will be launched for global markets on January 22 at an event in Paris, so, it’s safe to say that it’s not coming to India before January 22.
The Honor V20 is a flagship smartphone which is powered by Kirin 980 SoC. It comes in three different memory configurations – 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, and 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage.

Having said that, the V20 features a 48 MP camera at the back along with a 3D TOF camera for depth sensing and motion capture. On the front, you have a 25 MP selfie camera, but, it sits inside the hole in the top-left corner of the display.
