The Honor V40 series will be the first smartphone from Honor after its total independence from Huawei. This series has been in the news for some time and most of its features are already public. However, a recent leak shows that the Honor V40 series will support a 300Hz touch sampling rate. This is quite high and the screen refresh rate is 120Hz. The screen is similar to Huawei nova8 Pro, and it will release some super high frames for some gaming.
In addition, the potential release date of this smartphone is January 12 or 13th. Analysts believe that Honor will have some surprises for its fans. The company really needs to retain its core values otherwise, it can lose its pre-existing Huawei-inspired userbase.
While we are waiting for the official launch of this phone, a screenshot of the Honor V40 playing “Temple Escape 2” recently appeared online. The words “120fps beta test (Honor V40)” appear in the main interface of the game. This suggests that the smartphone will launch the “Temple Escape 2” on 120Hz mode. This is also an indication that Honor is preparing something nice for its users with this phone.
Honor V40 series speculations
A recent leak from @RODENT950 shows that the V40 series will use a pill-shaped dual punch-hole front camera as well as a dual speaker design. Furthermore, this device comes with a highly curved screen. There are speculations that this phone will run on Android 10 + Magic UI 4 + HMS.
Since the official sale of Honor, the company is yet to release its own smartphone. Cutting all ties with Huawei means that it is free to use American technology with permission of course. From the speculations so far, the Honor V40 series will be its first smartphone after its sale. The Honor V40 charger was certified in July this year and can provide up to 66W of charging power. This series may also support 45W wireless fast charging. Three models of the V40 series have been put on the shelves of Jingdong Mall and are expected to be officially released next month.
This new Honor series is still very similar to the Huawei nova 8 series. It supports 6W wired fast charging and 40W wireless fast charging. This phone comes with a 50MP main camera in a triple rear camera setup. The Pro+ version has four rear cameras. It will use a pill-shaped punch-hole which will have a 13MP camera as well as a depth of field lens. As for the processors, there are multiple unconfirmed reports. One report claims that four models of the V40 series will use four different processors. The report claims that the Honor V40 will come with a Dimensity 1000+ SoC. In addition, there will be an Honor V40 Pro which will use Samsung’s Exynos 1080. Furthermore, the V40 Pro+ will use Snapdragon 888 while the V40 Commemorative Edition will come with Huawei’s Kirin 9000. However, there is no confirmation to this report so it is best to take it with a grain of salt.
