Honor, as promised, held a presentation in China today, which showed the first smartphone of an already independent brand.
The novelty was named Honor V40 5G. The device has received top-end specifications and an attractive appearance. The smartphone is equipped with a glass body with three colors and a large OLED display with a diagonal of 6.72 inches. The screen has FHD + resolution, 120 Hz refresh rate, 300 Hz read rate, DCI-P3 support, and 10.7-bit color depth. The panel has a hole in the left corner for a 16MP + ToF front camera and an integrated fingerprint scanner. By the way, it is very likely that the Honor V40 has the same screen as the Huawei Nova 8 Pro, which debuted last December.
Under the hood, the novelty is powered by an eight-core MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ processor paired with 8 GB of RAM and GPU Turbo X and Hunter Boost technologies. They are responsible for the improved graphics in games. The chip is built on 7-nanometer process technology and has a built-in 5G modem. Honor V40 comes with a 4200mAh battery. It supports 66W wired charging and 50W wireless charging. The device has a slot for dual SIM, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB-C port, and stereo speakers.
The main triple camera is responsible for the photo and video capabilities of the device. The main sensor is 1 / 1.56-inch and 50MP resolution. It has a RYYB color filter that improves the quality of images in low light. Next come the 8MP wide-angle sensor and the 2MP macro lens. The camera supports night mode and AI RAW format.
Honor V40 has already started selling in China with the following prices:
Honor V40 8/128 GB – $556
Honor V40 8/256 GBB – $618
