Honor today unveiled its first flagship smartphone after the separation from Huawei, called the Honor V40. Together with the smartphone, a new Link Turbo technology was announced for high-speed data download.
According to the official information, the peak download speed of the Honor V40 smartphone reaches 2.3 Gbps. At the press conference, Honor showed a comparison of the download speed that was carried out in the Speedtest app on Honor V40, Oppo Reno 5 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro smartphones. The measurements were carried out on China Unicom’s 5G network.
The results showed that the download speed of the Honor V40 exceeded 2Gbps, and this is an average stable speed, not a peak value. The other two smartphones that took part in the comparison showed twice the worst result.
Link Turbo technology
Link Turbo technology automatically uses both 5G and 4G networks as well as Wi-Fi (2.4 + 5GHz) to provide smooth network connectivity in real-world applications that use high bandwidth and require faster internet connection.
Honor CEO Zhao Ming said that Honor has achieved the technology that will enable Honor to provide users with the best possible performance in accordance with its hardware and software capabilities.
