By January 11th, 2019 AT 5:12 PM

Huawei’s sub-brand Honor is set to launch the world’s first punch-hole display phone, the View 20, with a 48MP primary camera in India for around Rs 40,000 on January 29, industry sources told IANS on Friday. The device would be introduced on Amazon India and its pre-bookings would start on January 15. The smartphone, announced at Honor’s Artology event in Hong Kong in December 2018, has a new full-view display experience, courtesy the Honor’s “All-View Display”.

According to the company, the smartphone comes with eight world’s first technologies that include 1.4Gbps cat.21 Modem, which will deliver faster download speeds on LTE network. This is the world’s first in-screen front camera design, which is achieved by a complex 18-layer technology stack that carefully embeds the front camera in the display area of the screen and extends the display area to almost 100%, the company claimed during its unveiling in December.

The device also has Artificial Intelligence (AI) computing power and graphics processing power enabled by the dual-ISP and dual-NPU of Huawei’s own Kirin 980 chipset.

To recall, the Honor View 10, which was launched back in January 2018 arrived with an affordable Rs 29,999 price tag to take on the OnePlus 5T. Later on, the Honor 10 was launched at Rs 32,999 in the country. Now, the Honor View 20 is said to cost around Rs 40,000 in the sub-continent, which may not be true as Honor is known for launching affordable smartphones.

The Honor View 20 takes on the OnePlus 6T in India and it will be Honor’s first smartphone to launch with the 7nm Kirin 980 chipset. The only smartphone with Kirin 980 SoC available right now in India is the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

Get Redmi Note 5 Pro and flash custom roms. Better than stock android to be honest.

Pricing is more about where they want to keep their company. It would be excellent if they put it 29,999-33999 for base model. Its always better to deal with being successful, gaining market share and losses at a time than being unsuccessful with limited profits and almost non existent market share.. First they need to crack for users choice in premium 30-35k range.

Even Honor View 10 was overpriced by 5-8K.

But then again One Plus is really charging hefty from customers. Like OnePlus, Honor are not even providing updates on time. But Honor View 10 and Honor Play are underrated phones of 2018 under shadow of Poco F1/One Plus 6T.
