Earlier it was expected that the Honor V40 smartphone will be released this month, but the smartphone will be delayed until next year. Since the Honor brand was sold by Huawei for about $15 billion, the Honor V40 will be the first smartphone to be released by the new owners.

Reliable Chinese analyst at Digital Chat Station has confirmed the codename Honor V40 and has even revealed a few details regarding the SoC that it will use. According to the source, Honor V40 has model number YOK-AN10 and is codenamed YORK.

As for the SoC, due to the lack of flagship Kirin 9000 platforms, which will be in use only in Huawei smartphones, the new V40 will use a MediaTek chip. An insider confirmed that a Kirin 9000-based version of the V40 was in development, but it has been canceled.

Now all Honor V40 smartphones will receive an unnamed Dimensity platform. Perhaps we are talking about Dimensity 1000+ or ​​the yet unannounced 6-nanometer MT6893 platform.

The presentation of the Honor V40 is now expected in January next year.

Honor V40 launch postponed until January 2021

A trusted insider specializing in leaks about Huawei smartphones spoke about the company’s plans to release new products; We are talking about the Honor V40 series. In short, nothing good should be expected. The new US sanctions, which cut Huawei off from the Kirin SoCs, Qualcomm and MediaTek, did their dirty deed.

Usually, Huawei releases the flagship Honor V model at the end of the year; and at the beginning of the next year, its international version came out – without the letter V in the designation. For example, this was the case with the Honor V30 and Honor 30. But this time the timing is shifting. The Honor V40 line will debut not this month, but in January 2021. These will be smartphones developed by Huawei and, perhaps, they will be able to please with a decent zoom (Honor 40 may turn out to be “the first Honor smartphone with a superzoom” – as an insider described it).

As for the flagship Huawei itself, it will turn out to be P50 … and nothing more. The informant writes that there will be no Mate 50. If it came out, Huawei would have to sacrifice all its remaining processors for the P50. Probably, in both, it was supposed to use the Kirin 9000 SoC, of ​​which there are already few, so Huawei had to choose which flagship would get them. Since the Mate 40 is a fairly fresh smartphone, it is logical to give all the available stock of Kirin 9000 to the promising P50.
