Honor V40 5G

Smartphone brand Honor has announced its first phone since the company officially separated from Huawei, the Honor V40 5G. The device comes with a Dimensity 1000+ chipset, a new 50 MP camera, and speedy charging.

The Honor V40 5G has a 6.72” OLED display with curved sides and a pill-shaped punch hole for the dual selfie cameras. The panel supports a 120Hz refresh rate and up to 300Hz touch sampling rate and a resolution of 2676 x 1236 pixels.

On the rear, there are three cameras. The main one is a 50 MP RYYB sensor that is 1/1.56” big. The pixel size is 1.0µm, but in the 4-in-1 pixel-binned mode it goes to 2µm. The other two cameras are an 8MP ultrawide-angle shooter and a 2MP camera for close-up shots. There is also laser autofocus, placed right next to the single LED flash.

The 4,000 mAh battery in the device supports 66W wired charging. This lets you go from flat to 100% in 35 minutes. Wireless charging speeds show up to 50W and a 50% charge in 35 minutes.

As for the inherited technology, the Honor V40 5G comes with Magic UI 4.0, with Android 10 underneath. There is no word on whether the phone would have Google Services because the event was in China, where phones ship without those.

The Honor V40 5G is up for sale in three colours – Night Black, Titanium Silver, Rose Gold – and comes in two memory configurations – 8/128 GB or 8/256 GB. Price starts from CNY3,599 ($556/€455) and goes up to CNY3,999 ($620/€505).
