After its separation from Huawei and as we already told you, the year 2021 looks ambitious for Honor since it has to sell 100 million mobile phones, although we do not know if it refers only to China or the global market as a whole.

The first Honor terminal as an independent brand will be the Honor V40, a mid-range-premium terminal of which Information has been leaking in recent weeks both about its specifications and about its availability and price.

Features and Specifications

As they have in Gizmochina, many of the specifications of the Honor V40 have already been leaked before its official presentation.

Regarding the design, this Honor V40 has a front dominated by a large screen with curved edges and a hole in the screen where its two front cameras are housed and a rear part where its four-camera module located in the upper left corner of the terminal stands out.

Regarding the technical characteristics of the screen, this terminal has a 6.72-inch OLED panel with a FullHD + resolution, a refresh rate of 120 Hz and an on-screen fingerprint sensor.

The great novelty in this section is that we find One billion color super sensitive retina display and 50 MP super sensitive lens array for camera setup, which will provide better color reproduction.

The engine of this Honor V40 is none other than the Mediatek Dimensity 1000+, an eight-core processor that is compatible with the new 5G mobile networks and that as they have in Gizchina it has been seen on Geekbench with the Honor YOK-AN10 model obtaining scores of 468 points in the single-core tests and 2061 in the multi-core tests.
