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 Honor V40 series have been put on the shelves of Jingdong Mall and are expected to be officially released next month.
The Honor V40 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.
Gizchina News of the week
Honor V40 series may use four flagship chips from different manufacturers
As of now, there is not much information regarding the Honor V40 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 V40Pro which will use Samsung’s Exynos 1080. Furthermore, the Honor V40 Pro+ will use Snapdragon 888 while the HonorV40 Commemorative Edition will come with Huawei’s Kirin 9000.
The leak is also a poll thus we are not entirely certain how the poster got a hold of the information. As of now, we can not verify this information thus we employ you to take it with a pinch of salt. Furthermore, there is no confirmation that the U.S. will allow Honor to use American technology. Thus, we can not guarantee that Honor can use Dimensity, Exynos, and Snapdragon chips. In addition, the Kirin 9000 SoC is barely enough for the Huawei Mate 40 series and other planned flagship. It is most unlikely that Huawei will have some units to sell to Honor for its V40 series. All these are just some questions that beg for answers.
