Huawei sub-brand Honor announced the Honor V20 – its first 48 MP camera smartphone – last month in China. However, the V20 will be launched as View20 for global markets at an event in Paris on January 22. And a week later, on January 29, the View20 will be launched in India. The Honor View20 will be sold exclusively through Amazon in India, and, we now know how much it could be priced in the country.
According to a report by IANS, the Honor View20 will be priced around ₹40,000 in India. For comparison, the Honor View20 starts at ¥2999 (around ₹31,210) in China and goes all the way up to ¥3999 (around ₹41,620), so the ₹40,000 price could be for the top-end model.
The Honor View20 is a flagship smartphone which is powered by Kirin 980 SoC. The smartphone comes in three memory configurations – 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage, and 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage.
The View20 is also the first Honor smartphone that comes with a punch-hole display and a 48 MP camera at the back. For selfies and video calls, there’s a 25 MP camera on the front which resides inside the display hole.
The smartphone ships with a 4000 mAh battery with support for 22.5W fast charging, however, the variant that will be launched in India will probably come with 20W fast charging.
