Honor has published quite a few camera samples of the 48-megapixel Honor V20 smartphone camera. Although the successor to last year’s Honor V10, the Honor V20, was officially announced on Monday, it still isn’t coming to the market until January 22.
Huawei’s sub-brand Honor hosted an event in Hong Kong only to tease the V20 smartphone with few details. It is the world’s first smartphone with All-View display and in-display camera. But that’s not the only highlight. It will also be the first one to carry 48-megapixel rear camera sensor, beating Xiaomi’s 48MP phone that is also expected to arrive in January.
The Honor V20 uses Sony IMX586 image sensor, which has a maximum resolution of 48 million pixels and supports 4-in-1 light fusion. Honor claims that it has 4-times improved HDR support and 134 percent improvement in AI imaging capability.
The camera sample shared by Honor appear much sharper, less color saturated and without much of noise. Even the low-light images look much detailed with almost no pixelation. According to GSMArena, Honor’s V20 takes advantage of the Quad Bayer tech and this method stacks four adjacent 2×2 pixels into the same color.
Honor will officially reveal other details of Honor V20 including its price on December 26. The smartphone will be introduced globally on January 22 at an event in Paris, France.

Honor is showing its prowess as a technology brand and will bring all of those features to Honor View20 and future devices. Honor is the market leader in China but it needs to sell more smartphones in markets like India, where Xiaomi is the leader, to reach Huawei’s goal of shipping 200 million smartphones in one year.
