The Honor View 20’s 48MP camera has incredible potential
Honor’s latest affordable flagship, the View 20, is more than just a handsome piece of hardware — though with a smooth, curved glass back, eye-catching colors, and a unique chevron pattern, it’s that, too. One of the things that impressed us most in our review of the View 20 was its camera capabilities.
Around the back, it sports a 48MP primary camera (the Sony IMX 586, to be exact), aided by a time-of-flight sensor that helps with depth detection and object tracking. 48MP is a lot of information, and rather than simply presenting you with enormous files for every photo you take, Honor does what’s called pixel binning, compacting every four pixels into one for the final image, resulting in 12MP photos with more clarity and brightness than a regular 12MP sensor would be able to capture.
