Honor View 20 officially unveiled as world’s first smartphone to use nanolithography

Honor teased a new smartphone with a hole in the display for mid-January early this month, but it looks like the Chinese company didn’t want to wait one more month for the big reveal. The Honor View 20 has been officially unveiled in China, but it will be introduced globally on January 22 in Paris, France.

Apparently, Honor’s new device is the world’s first smartphone to use nanolithography to create an invisible nanotexture on the back side. Many of you aren’t probably aware that nanolithography is the science of etching, writing or printing in order to modify a material surface with structures under 100nm. The reasoning behind adopting such a design for the phone‘s back cover is to offer a beautiful skin that lives longer.

Also, Honor View 20 adopts the hole in display camera design to maximize the viewing area of the display. According to Honor, the View 20 is the first smartphone to include a FullView display 3.0 and an exceptional 91.8% body-to-screen ratio. 

The Honor View 20 boasts a 48-megapixel rear camera and a 25-megapixel selfie camera integrated into the display. At the core of the rear camera, there’s a Sony IMX586 stacked CMOS image sensor, which features 48 effective megapixels on a 1/2-inch sensor. That should provide users to richer details and more vibrant colors in the AI-optimized shots taken with the phone.

The flagship is equipped with a top-tier Kirin 980 chipset, coupled with either 6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB internal memory. Moreover, the phone sports a 6.4-inch display with FHD+ (1080 x 2310 pixels) resolution and a generous 4,000 mAh battery.

Although Honor announced the View 20 will be available for purchase in China from December 28 for $435 (6/128GB) and $510 (8/128GB), respectively, prices will be higher in other countries. Last but not least, the Moschino version that packs 8GB RAM and 256GB storage will sell for approximately $580 in China.
