What will they think of next? In 2018, we’ve seen the proliferation of notched displays (thank 2017 iPhone X). Then we saw the emergence of vivo NEX’s “elevated camera.” OPPO then found some mechanical genius with its retractable camera system on the Find X. Along came the Mi MIX 3’s sliding camera mechanism – manually driven but ultimately effective. But why all this, you ask? The quest for a full-screen display. And to ultimately, kill the notch.

It’s the tail end of 2018, but expect a new wave of exploration coming. 2019 may very well be the year of the “punch hole” in-screen camera. And it starts with the honor View20 (honor V20 in China).

It’s no secret that companies have been scrambling for the next best thing. Samsung and Huawei are expected to introduce phones with in-screen cameras soon. Beating them to the punch ever so slightly, the honor View20 is first out of the gate.

Slated for a 26 December launch in Beijing, and a 22 January global release thereafter, the honor View20 will not only be the world’s first in-screen camera smartphone, but also feature a whopping 48MP AI rear camera.

Honor says that the punch hole on the honor View20 is only 4.5mm in diameter and is located at the top left of the display. There are no official details of the front camera specs but it is said to be a 25MP unit.

The main camera is where it gets interesting. The phone uses Sony’s new IMX586 1/2.0-inch sensor with a resolution of 48MP. The sensor supports 4-in-1 “Light Fusion,” another fancy term for pixel-binning. Each pixel is 0.8-micron pixel in size, and can be combined to create 1.6-micron super pixel for better low light performance.

So, a 48MP image can be used to produce a high resolution 12MP image that’s enhanced further by AI.

The dual-NPU Kirin 980 powers the View20, which Huawei says boasts 134 percent better AI image processing performance compared to the Kirin 970. With a Dual-ISP, the phone is also 46 percent quicker in camera processes compared to its predecessor.

Another highlight is Link Turbo, a feature that combines Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity for faster download speeds.

No other details are available at the moment. But it won’t be long until we get full details at its China launch. Keep your eyes peeled on Boxing Day.
