Honor became independent from Huawei in November and may soon launch phones with Google services in Europe. While waiting for this to happen, the brand presented today the Honor V40 Lite officially at an event in China. A new device with a curved screen and a very slim design.
The name Honor V40 Light Luxury Edition is a literal translation of the name in Chinese of this device, which would simply be called Honor V40 Lite when it was launched internationally, although for now it remains a mystery, although it could happen within a few months.

A mid-range with 5G
This new Honor V40 Lite is in the mid-range of the manufacturer, thanks to the use of Dimensity 800U as a processor. This is a MediaTek chip that gives the phone 5G connectivity, which is of great importance in the Chinese market today. This chip gives you good performance and moderate power consumption for the phone’s 3800mAh capacity battery, which supports 66W fast charging.
Its design is one of the keys, with a 6.72-inch OLED display with curved edges. This screen takes advantage of the front of the device in a remarkable way and will allow an immersive experience when consuming multimedia content. It is also a very thin smartphone, with a thickness of only 7.64 mm and weighs only 169 grams.
Four cameras await us on the back of this Honor V40 Lite: A main sensor of 64 Mpx, an ultra wide angle of 8 Mpx, a macro sensor of 2 Mpx and a depth sensor of 2 Mpx also. It’s a very solid camera combination, to which is added a 32MP front sensor located in the perforation of the screen.
Magic UI 4.0 is the operating system found in this device, based on Android 10 AOSP. It is not known if the brand will use Google services on its phones again soon, as an international version of this phone with these services would be an interesting launch.
