The Honor View 20, which was released internationally a few days ago, is the first device from that brand to feature a punch-hole selfie camera. At this event, the OEM's president, George Zhao, was quoted as saying that this form of display was the "better solution". Therefore, Honor's next flagship, the 11, will probably follow the new trend.

Honor, Huawei's popular sub-brand, is currently making waves with its latest release, the View 20. In addition to its glass back that shows a shifting chevron pattern under varying light levels, this phone is also one of the first to rock a punch-hole display instead of one with a notch. This hole allows the front-facing camera to peep through a corner of a screen, the rest of which stretches across a front panel with minimal bezels.

The Honor View 20 was recently released on a global basis at an event in Paris. The brand's president, George Zhao, was present at this event. He was quoted as saying that punch-hole technology is a "better solution" for the company at this point, and that there would be "fewer" display notches in Honor smartphone's futures. This may be a hint that the next premium device from the brand will also have a camera in its display.

This device is likely to be called the Honor 11 (or Honor 20, in some markets). Like the Honor View 20, it is projected to integrate the Kirin 980 chipset and also rock a triple rear camera. It may be launched at MWC 2019 (even though it could end up overshadowed by Huawei's 5G foldable phone at this event). However, little else is known for sure about this expected release.
