Honor has announced its first phone since the company officially has separated from Huawei – say hello to the Honor V40 5G. The device comes with a Dimensity 1000+ chipset, a new 50 MP camera, and plenty of more specs to be intrigued about.
The screen of the Honor V40 5G is a 6.72” OLED with curved sides and a pill-shaped punch hole for the dual selfie cameras. The panel supports a 120 Hz refresh rate and up to 300 Hz touch sampling rate and is TUV Rheinland-certified for AI adaptive brightness.
On the back, we have three cameras – the main one comes with a 50 MP RYYB sensor that is 1/1.56” big. The pixel size is 2.0 um, but it comes with some 4-in-1 pixel-binning for better shots. The other two cameras are an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle shooter and a 2 MP cam for close-up shots. There is also laser autofocus, placed right next to the single LED flash.
While Honor is an independent company now, we still see some Huawei-inspired technologies, like the charging, for example. The battery can be topped from 0 to 100% in 35 minutes, thanks to the 66W wired fast charging, or slightly slower if users decide to go for the 50W wireless option. These are the same speeds in the Huawei Mate 40 Pro smartphone.
Speaking about inherited technology, the Honor V40 5G comes with Magic UI 4.0, sadly, with Android 10 underneath. There was no word whether the phone would have Google Services because the event was in China, where they are banned and practically non-existent.
