Huawei sub-brand Honor India is all set to take the wraps off the world's first phone with punch-hole selfie camera that goes behind the display. Yes, the phone in question is indeed Honor View 20. According to IANS, Honor View 20 could be priced somewhere close to Rs 40,000 in the Indian market. Honor View 20 launch in India is set for January 29. Honor View 20 will be up for grabs exclusively on Amazon India. However, pre-order starts on January 15.
