This week in Android: HONOR View 20 and MWC 2019 preview
Our HONOR View 20 review is in, and boy does this phone check a lot of boxes. It’s not the first phone we have seen with a punch hole screen and 48 megapixel camera, but it is by far the most gorgeous. The HONOR 8 started the 15 layer-glass design, but the HONOR View 20 is by far the most beautiful implementation. And the phone itself is no slouch either — check out the full review to learn why.
Plus, we detail a couple of OEMs that will bring 5G phones to MWC. HUAWEI unveiled its new 5G modem recently, and now it plans to debut the world’s first folding 5G phone at MWC. Plus, LG says it will have a 5G phone with a vapor cooling chamber and possibly some kind of gesture control on board. Add to that a couple of phones with no buttons or ports, and MWC is going to be a busy week.

5G and foldables will be all over MWC this year, and HUAWEI is joining the party!

Have you noticed that your phone is getting updates faster? You’re not alone.
Carriers may be able to control your phone in new and exciting ways with these new code commits to Android Q.
Ugh, touching your phone is soooooo 2018, at least if LG has anything to say about it.
Finally, we have a pair of phones (including this one from Meizu) that think buttons and ports are also a bit 2018 for their taste. Not sure we agree.
Who wants to win an LG V40 ThinQ?
