Huawei is set to unveil its new premium phone, the Honor V20, on December 26. The device will feature a single rear camera, albeit a 48 MP one.

Last week, there were reports that the Honor V20 could be coming next year, with the device said to still be in development. That has turned out to be inaccurate, though, as Huawei teased the Honor V20 yesterday in full. The previous report cited Honor President Zhao Ming as labeling the V20 as “a big trick”, and it would seem said trick is even bigger than expected.

The Honor V20 has been confirmed to feature a 48 MP camera, likely a Sony IMX586—the same sensor we expect to be seen on the Snapdragon 675-powered Xiaomi phone next year. Of even more interest is the fact that the 48 MP camera will be the only camera on the back on the device.

We’re not sure why the company opted for a single sensor—large as it may be—but we’re very much interested in seeing how it performs when the phone hits the shelves. Released camera samples so far haven’t been the most impressive, and while we’ve seen companies like Google and Apple do incredible things with just one sensor, we’re not sure if Huawei’s abilities offset the utility lost by ditching secondary sensors.

The Honor V20 will be powered by a Kirin 980 and features a camera hole similar to the Samsung Galaxy A8s's. It will be unveiled on December 26 in China and will make its way to the rest of the world on January 22.
