Shenzhen-based “Honor” has become the latest brand to get rid of the notch in favor of a smaller, circular cutout. Set to launch in January 2019, the company’s upcoming View 20 (V20) will replace the industry standard ‘notch’ with a 4.5mm hole.

The rear camera is equally impressive, boasting a 48MP sensor manufactured by Sony. Sources say Honor will incorporate industry-leading ISP technology developed by Huawei, as well as the “Mate 20 Pro”, a chip designed to “create an AI-enabled high-definition 48MP image.”

Away from the advanced camera tech, the V20 also comes with Honor’s proprietary “Link Turbo”, an AI-powered networking technology that allows the phone to simultaneously download via Wi-Fi and 4G networks. Essentially, it’s designed to let the phone switch between Wi-Fi and 4G when the connection becomes slow.

Honor will first release the View 20 in Beijing on December 26th. The global launch is set for January 22nd in Paris.
