Honor will release the upcoming Honor V40 series in a few weeks. According to a recent leak from @RODENT950, these smartphones 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. This device with a model number (YOK-AN10) has since appeared on TENAA. Now, the Honor V40 has the Chinese 3C certification. The certification shows that this device uses a 66W fast charging source adapter (HW-110600C00).
It is worth mentioning that the Huawei Mate40 and nova8 series also use the HW-110600C00 adapter. This charger was certified in July this year and can provide up to 66W of charging power. 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 uses a 6.72-inch FHD+ 120Hz refresh rate display. 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.
Honor V40 series may use multiple processors
As of now, there is not much information regarding the HonorV40 series. However, if the recent leak is true, then the company is preparing something interesting. According to a leak on Weibo, the Honor V40 series will have four models. The interesting part of the leak is that all four models will use different flagship processors from different manufacturers. This will be the first time that a single series will use as many as four different flagship chips from different manufacturers.
According to the leak, 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 Honor V40 Pro+ will use Snapdragon 888 while the Honor 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.
