Huawei Honor View 20 was one of the most talked about smartphones during the last months of 2018, and for very good reasons. This high end features some of the latest innovations in the world of smartphones.
Among the main highlights, you'll find the screen Fullview with a small 'hole' where your front camera is housed. In addition, it was the first smartphone to launch with the popular 48 megapixel camera (Sony IMX586).
The Honor View 20 was already presented in China on December 26th, but now it has been its official presentation in European markets. The event took place in Paris, where it was revealed that its price for most countries in Europe will be € 549.
Finally a top of the range offering excellent value for money
Although it has shown a price increase (already expected) when compared to its value in China (400 €). This new high-end continues to present itself as an excellent investment opportunity.
The Huawei Honor View 20 presents itself as an almost perfect match between design, specifications and pricing. Its unique design features a back panel with a never-before-seen gradient tone, while its front panel offers a generous 6.4 "inch Full HD + screen.
Responsible for controlling operations is the powerful Kirin 980 processor, which was also used in the popular Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. As for your memories, you can count on up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory.
Honor View 20 promises to challenge photographic giants
Arriving equipped with a dual rear camera, its 48 megapixel main sensor promises to achieve results that could challenge today's 'kings' of smartphone photography.
Supporting your main camera is a secondary camera with a 3D ToF sensor (Time of flight). It will allow you to analyze and map the entire environment around you, as well as your body structure.
As for the final results, just over a week ago, we saw the first photos captured with this smartphone being published. The results leave no doubt, for the price, this is probably the best smartphone you can buy (for photography).
Is this the best smartphone you can buy in early 2019?
If you are just considering buying smartphones launched as early as 2019, this will surely be your best bet. Although its availability to the UK’s market has not been confirmed. It should not be long before it becomes available.
On the other hand, if you don't mind that your next smartphone was launched last year. You still have several very interesting (and cheaper) alternatives. That is, considering that the 48 megapixel camera and the 'hole' on the screen are not priorities for you.
If you don't want to wait any longer for Honor View 20, you can always shop at the usual online stores. Although its price is slightly more expensive (know more here). Or, invest in one of 2018's most popular smartphones – Xiaomi Pocophone F1 – which continues to get more interesting with each update it receives. (know more about pricing and shipping here)
