On November 17, 2020, Huawei sold its sub-brand Honor after being “under enormous pressure”. The honor is currently in the hands of Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology Co, so technically we are not talking about Huawei phones anymore. However, the sale has not paralyzed the pace of launches planned by Honor, and the first specifications of one of its 5G mobiles for 2021 have already been disclosed.
This is the Honor V40, belonging to the V family, mid-to-high range mobiles with fairly competitive specifications and which, in cases like the Honor V30, have arrived in Europe.
120Hz and MediaTek on board
MediaTek’s expansion in 2020 has been remarkable, and with its size on board dozens of devices. The Honor V40, according to the leaks, would also rely on a processor from the Chinese brand, in this case the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+, one of his most powerful proposals to stand up to Qualcomm. Thanks to this processor, the Honor V40 will be a 5G device.
According to the filtration, the 120Hz OLED panel will arrive for this Honor V40, with a Full HD + resolution
Apart from this processor, the leak indicates that this device will have a huge 6.72-inch panel with Full HD + resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. Likewise, the response of the touch input will be 300 Hz, depending on the source. The arrival of 120Hz to Honor is great news and it is that devices of the highest range in its former home, like the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, have entered the market with 90Hz.
This panel and this processor will be accompanied by a configuration of 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM as well as an internal memory of 128 or 256 GB, in both cases UFS 2.1. Memory can be expanded by microSD cards. Regarding the cameras, a main sensor between 50 and 64 megapixels is expected, accompanied by an ultra wide angle of 8 megapixels and two secondary cameras of 2 megapixels for macro and depth. The selfie camera is expected to be 32 + 16 mega-pixel, wide and ultra-wide.
Finally, the leak indicates a 4000 mAh battery with a fast charge of 66 W. Likewise, it is expected 44W wireless charging. At the moment there is no news on the possible price and availability of this model, although last year we were able to test the previous version at the end of January.
