To recall, the smartphone is the global variant of the Honor V20 that was launched in China last month, and is one of the first to sport a hole-punch design instead of a notch, with the front camera placed in a display cutout on the top left, and a earpiece nestled in the top display bezel. As for the rear camera, the Honor View 20 has some optic chops, with a primary 48-megapixel Sony IM586 sensor and a secondary time of flight (ToF) sensor.

As we mentioned, the Honor View 20 is the global variant of the Honor V20, in much the same way as the Honor View 10 and the Honor V10. With the smartphone already having been launched in China, we can estimate the Honor View 20 price as well - it's expected to start at about CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs. 30,400) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage option, going up to CNY 3,499 (roughly Rs. 35,500) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option. In China, the Huawei sub-brand launched a Moschino Edition as well, priced at CNY 3,999 (roughly Rs. 40,600).
