The V40 phones will of course have been in development because earlier than November, now that Huawei has actually divested itself of Honor, the global “View 40” version of the V40 might have the ability to ship with Google services on board. That would permit Honor to sell phones in Western markets and beyond without the huge drawback of having to count on Huaweis AppGallery, which still cant take on Googles Play Store outside of China, where Google has no existence.
At the exact same time, Honor no longer has the benefit of counting on Huaweis supply chain, so its going to have work to do in order to develop itself as a strong brand in its own right once the phones launch in other places. For now, its offered in China with costs beginning at 3,599 yuan (~$550) for a design with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. 3,999 yuan (~$620) doubles the storage to 256GB.
Honor has actually announced the brand-new V40 5G flagship phone, its first since Huawei sold the company off to a Shenzhen-based consortium of Chinese partners. The phone is special to China in the meantime, but Honors V-series typically makes its way to the rest of the world under “View” branding.
The V40 has a 6.72-inch OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ processor. The primary electronic camera has a 1/1.56-inch 50-megapixel sensor. The 4,000 mAh battery can be charged wirelessly at 50W or at 66W with a cable television.
Huawei announced that it was selling Honor in November due to “tremendous pressure” and a difficulty in securing an appropriate supply chain. While Honor was operated independently from Huawei, it counted on the moms and dad business for much of its technology, such as HiSenses Kirin processors. That implied it was struck simply as difficult by US sanctions prohibiting US companies from working with Huawei.
