Honor View 20 will also feature a punch-hole all-screen design

Honor View 20 will also feature a punch-hole all-screen design With Huawei and Samsung already prepping all-screen smartphones with a circular front camera cutout, other companies are bound to join this notch-free party. The latest brand to tease a "hole-screen" device is none other than Huawei's awkwardly linked Honor, with its upcoming View 20 aka V20 said to feature an even smaller hole diameter -- 4.5mm versus the competition's alleged 6mm -- for the front camera at the upper left corner of this "All-View Display." Interestingly, the lens here is mounted "like a diamond" underneath the display, thus maintaining the latter's structure.

Weibo seems to be the place for Chinese tech executives to tease their upcoming devices: Huawei has been teasing the Nova 4 release, Lenovo showed off its flexible smartphone, and now Xiaomi's president is teasing the company's next phone by posting a close-up image of rear side on the site.

Lin Bin took a picture with his own Mi Mix 3 of what appears to be the top left-hand corner of the phone's rear --based on the visible position of the volume control button.

Sony introduces IMX586 smartphone camera with 48 MP Quad Bayer sensor. Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 gets a 103 DxOMark score, boosted by 108 for photos.

In July this year, Sony launched the world ’ s first 48 MP smartphone sensor (Sony IMX586) and the one on Mi 9 is The Huawei P20 Pro and the Mate 20 Pro have 40MP Sony IMX600 sensors, and they use the Pixel Fusion technology that combines four pixels into one, resulting in a 10MP sensor.

The image reveals the phone's black finish, dual-flash, about half of the lens, and vertically positioned text that reads, "48MP CAMERA." The caption accompanying the photograph tells us Bin has been enjoying using the device for a couple weeks and that it will be released next month.

A 48MP camera on a smartphone would be a world first. The newest iPhone and Samsung flagship devices both have 12MP rear cameras, while the best lens from the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is 40MP.

Until we find out more specs, there's not much more we can predict about the device.

New Samsung smartphone series called ‘Rize’ might be on the way.
