The Wonder of 20
HONOR 20 gathered the global limelight at its London launch thanks to its combination of powerful 48MP AI Quad Camera with a multi-dimensional, Dynamic Holographic glass back and industry-leading technology including Kirin 980 chipset, GPU Turbo 3.0, a 3,750 mAh battery and Virtual 9.1 Surround Sound.
The HONOR 20’s Quad Camera leads with a Sony IMX586 48MP Main Camera, as well as a 16MP Super Wide Angle Camera, 2MP Depth Assist Camera and 2MP Macro Camera. The HONOR 20 is also equipped with AIS Super Night Mode, letting users record their magic moments in great details even in dimly-lit scenarios.
The HONOR 20 also comes with Super Bluetooth, powered by its Kirin 980 and Hi1103 chipset. Thanks to Super Bluetooth, the HONOR 20 can use AI algorithms to adjust its Bluetooth signals and connect to Bluetooth devices further away than ever before. In HONOR’s lab tests[i], the HONOR 20 was able to stay connected to a pair of Bluetooth headphones more than 244 meters away – further than any other phone tested.
On the rear, HONOR 20 redefines the user experience by becoming the first product in HONOR’s history to introduce a multi-dimensional, Dynamic Holographic glass back, available in either Sapphire Blue or Midnight Black. Meticulously crafted through HONOR’s industry-first Triple 3D Mesh technology, the two-stage process first create a depth layer using nanotechnology to engrave millions of miniature prisms. Upon completion of this intricate process, the engineers continue with the assembly of glass, colour, and depth layers. As light passes through the prisms in the depth layer, light is reflected and refracted in all directions.
