Independent company Honor is set to unveil its first smartphone in January after splitting from Huawei, the Honor V40. Sources previously reported that the Honor V40 screen will offer the highest touch sampling rate on the market.
We already know that the V40 will receive an ultra-clear screen with curved edges and support for a high refresh rate. Now we have an image that shows the curved smartphone screen and other details.
We do not know whether Honor will call the smartphone display a waterfall screen; but it can be stated that its bending is quite strong. Probably, the smartphone will not have physical volume control buttons; with such a screen on the case, there is simply no room for them.
Previous leaks claimed that the smartphone could come with a 6.72-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The FullHD + screen is expected to have a notch in the upper left corner for a dual front camera.
The Honor V40 has already appeared on the online store JD.com, which offers three models to book: Honor V40, Honor V40 Pro and Honor V40 Pro +.
