Honor View 20: FAQs
Honor’s position as a provider of affordable mid-range smartphones is now cemented. With the View 10, Honor delivered the world’s first AI processor in a smart phone and was a device that we loved here at Clove.
We were understandably excited for the global launch of the Honor View 20; so here’s everything you need to know.
#1: When is the Honor View 20 coming out?
The Honor V20 was officially launched in China last month and is a Chinese variant of the Honor View 20 that was unveiled in Paris on the 22nd of January.
The grand unveiling told us everything that we needed to know, and the device is now available from Clove Technology.
#2: Where can I buy the Honor View 20?

#3: Does the Honor View 20 Have a Notch?
One of the first things you’re bound to notice with the Honor View 20, is the fact that the notch has been completely abandoned in favour of a small camera hole.
The small cut out measures in at only 4.5mm and with minimal bezels hugging the screen, this makes the Honor View 20 extraordinarily clean looking in comparison to devices that have that notch. In fact, this overall finish gives the phone a whopping 91.8% screen-to-body ratio which is one of the largest on flagship devices that we’ve seen in the last few years.
Indeed, during its Chinese launch, Design Chief, David Yuan, claimed that the positioning of the cut out had been well thought through, and the result of extensive research to discover where users would most prefer to see the hole in a display. Results showed that the middle was the least popular since it was most visible, whilst Honor concluded that the left corner would interfere least with full-screen games in landscape.
#4: Is the Honor View 20 Water Resistant?
The Honor View 20 does not come with an IP rating and as such, we wouldn’t advise taking it for a swim any time soon.
An IP rating is an international standard that shows how dust and water resistant your phone (or another device) is. If your device does not come with one of these ratings, then it has no guaranteed resistance against water and so we would advise extra caution when using it in wet areas.
Handily, Honor have included a TPU Protective Cover within the box, to help your device against bumps and bruises.
#5: Is the Honor View 20 Dual SIM?
As you may have seen, the Chinese launch indicated that the Honor View 20 will come with Dual SIM capabilities; able to carry two Nano-SIMs and supporting Dual Standby. This means that two SIMs can connect to their own networks, even if both SIMs are from the same camera.
Its predecessor – the Honor View 10 – came with Dual SIM capabilities and so we aren’t at all surprised to see that the Honor View 20 also comes as a Dual SIM variant. Indeed, the Honor View 20 that is shipping from Clove will be a Dual SIM device.
#6: Does the Honor View 20 Support Wireless Charging?
Unfortunately, the Honor View 20 does not come with support for wireless charging.
Instead, it comes with a standard USB C charging port, whilst the 4000mAh battery comes equipped with support for 4.5V/5A Super Charging. This will have you back up and running in no time.
#7: Does the Honor View 20 Have a Headphone Jack?
Fans of the traditional headphone jack, rejoice!
The Honor View 20 comes fitted with that trusty 3.5mm jack so you don’t need to throw your favourite headphones away just yet.
This is becoming quite a rarity for flagships and we know this is a big draw for many, including ourselves.
#8: Why Should I Buy the Honor View 20?
Alongside the unique front cut out, the Honor View 20 has been crafted with a spectacular design that we love here at Clove. The metal body on the rear has undergone the nano-lithography treatment on the back, which adds a trademark, reflective V shape underneath the surface.
The rear camera is Sony’s latest 48MP – yes 48MP – IMX586 which has been coupled with time-of-flight sensors that take a clear depth map. This means that the camera can measure distances and separate subject from background to manipulate them both, creating great bokeh shots. We can’t wait to try this out!
A new liquid cooling system has been created with an ultra-thin heat tube that draws heat away from the device’s core components into a multi-layered heat spreader made from a composite of materials.
