As mentioned, the design and rear camera system of the Honor View 20 are the highlights of the phone. On the rear, it sports a 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor, which is the first handset to come with such high-resolution sensor. The sensor has 0.8µm pixels, and it is a ½-inch type, making the sensor significantly smaller than the one found on other handsets like the Pixel 3 XL and Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The sensor enables users to capture photos with double the resolution, and they can also crop it. Honor claims that no 2x optical zoom on other flagship phones has a better implementation than this. We did a test on our own and found that it actually enabled taking higher resolution photos and cropping them without sacrificing the details.
