Honor View 20 Design

The View 20 features an ultra-reflective curved glass at the back. And at the front is a 2.5D glass with the frame made up of aluminium. The phone doesn’t feature any official water resistance, not Qi wireless charging which is a letdown, to say the least. It does, however, feature a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. At the rear also is a dual camera with LED flash arranged vertically at the top left corner.

Honor has dropped the notch display, which usually houses the selfie camera. Instead, the View 20 features a punch-hole on-screen selfie camera. It measures 8.1 mm in thickness and weighs a huge 180 grams.
