The Honor View20 comes with IMX586 which is capable of taking 48 Megapixel picture. Pictures taken is in the size of 8000×6000 pixels. You can choose to shoot it in RAW mode.

The camera features AIS (AI stabilsation) which may not be that suitable for shaky hands. There is no mention of OIS (Optical image stabilisation) in the spec sheet.

Below are some shots taken in the night with no digital zoom. Pictures are down scaled to 1024×768 to fit the screen.

The first shot – The Fullerton Hotel was taken at night. The edges are sharp and there is little noise. I cropped portions of the screen just below the wordings in the next picture. The balcony can be seen, even the edges of the windows are visible.

Next is another shot at Marina Bay. Again, we can see the ripples clearly and edges of the building very clearly.

When it is cropped, the windows behind the flags are still visible with details.
