Honor announced that the Honor V20 with Kirin 980 is a budget friendly call center. It features punch hole displays such as Huawei Nova 4 and a variety of advanced features such as 48 megapixel camera, 25 megapixel screen camera and Link Turbo technology. Honor V20 started at Rs 2,999 (~ $ 435).
Design and display
The Honor V20 boasts an elegant appeal thanks to its metal and glass combination design. It is a sports 3D glass with a noticeable V-shaped texture when light is reflected from the company to the first phone of the V series. The front camera is no longer visible on the top bezel of your smartphone. It is now placed in the top left corner of the screen. The screen camera occupies a small space because it is only 4.5mm in diameter. This allowed a call on the slopes of sports slim days around the display except for a slightly thick underside.
The device has a 6.4-inch IPS LCD screen that supports full HD resolution at 2310 x 1080 pixels. The screen provides a screen-to-body ratio of 91.82% and a pixel density of 382 ppi.
