It’s only a few days before the official launch of Honor’s first smartphone as an independent brand. The Chinese manufacturer will release the Honor V40 at a press conference in China on January 18th. There have been a series of speculations regarding this device. Many weeks ago, there were reports that the Honor V40 will use a 300Hz touch sampling rate display. The company has officially confirmed this feature via a recent Weibo post.
In a teaser yesterday, Honor also confirmed that its upcoming smartphone will arrive with a 1 billion color retina-level super-sensing screen. According to reports, the 300Hz high-brush flexible ultra-clear screen of the Honor V40 has links to Huawei. There are reports that the display should use the same 10-bit panel as the Huawei nova 8 Pro. In terms of refresh rate, we expect the display to support 120Hz. It will also come with a pixel resolution of 2676 x 1236 and 800 nit global peak brightness.
The higher the touch sampling rate, the faster the touch response speed of the display. This means that the display of Honor V40 has faster touch than other models with a 240Hz touch sampling rate.
