Honor has launched the V40 5G, its first phone since Huawei sold Honor to a Shenzhen-based consortium in late 2020.
This new flagship phone features a 6.72-inch curved OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. There’s a pill-shaped punch hole interrupting the display, housing the 16MP wide and color spectrum sensor.
Powering it is a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ processor paired with 8GB of RAM and either 128/256GB storage.
Its cameras on the rear is reminiscent of vivo’s camera bump on its X series devices. The three lenses consist of a 1/1.56-inch 50MP RYYB sensor, an 8MP ultrawide-angle shooter, and a 2MP macro lens. Additionally, there’s laser autofocus next to the LED flash.
This device comes with a 4,000mAh battery with support for 66W wired charging that can take the device from 0 to 100% in 35 minutes.
The Honor V40 5G runs on Magic UI 4.0 based on Android 10. There’s still no word it will come with Google Services.
It’s available in three colors—Night Black, Titanium Silver, and Rose Gold— and starts at CNY 3,599 (around P27,000).
