Honor has just announced its latest high-end smartphone, the View 20, which gets rid of the notch in favor of a punch hole for its 25MP front camera. Perhaps a sign of what the next generation of smartphones will look like.

The Honor V20 sports a 6.4-inch 1080p display, and is powered by a Kirin 980 processor, along with up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. It runs on EMUI and packs a 4,000mAh battery support for SuperCharge technology.

The back of the device boasts a gradient finish with a V accent, which changes color depending on the viewing angle. Another notable feature of this phone is its 48MP rear snapper paired with a 3D TOF Sensing camera that allows for 3D body shaping, and supposedly improves how you look on your whole body shots.


To put icing on the cake, it also comes with the Super Night View Mode, EIS, and GPU Turbo 2.0 out of the box. It also supports Desktop Mode for improved productivity when connected to an external monitor.
