Finally, Honor has taken the covers off the much-anticipated Honor V40 5G smartphone in China. The device is the first release from the firm since it became independent of Huawei.
The Honor V40 5G is a flagship device that features 5G connectivity and a powerful MediaTek Dimensity processor.
It also comes with a massive display with 80-degree curvature on the left and right edges.
Specifications and Features of the Honor V40 5G Smartphone
The all-new Honor V40 5G has a 6.72-inch display with a pill-shaped cutout at the top-left corner.
The Honor V40 5G sets a record as the first V-series handset to debut with an OLED panel. The phone’s screen offers the user with a Full HD+ resolution of 1236 x 2676 pixel.
