We now know Honor’s first smartphone as independent brand. Since Huawei sold its subsidiary for 12.8 billion euros, expectations have grown for the latter’s first proposal. It is now done with the Honor v40, a 5G smartphone equipped with 6.72 ”OLED display.

However, it will take a little more patience to discover Honor smartphones powered by a Qualcomm SoC. For its V40, the manufacturer has indeed chosen the Dimensity 1000+ by Mediatek, accompanied by 8 GB LPDDR4x RAM, as well as a maximum of 256 GB of storage. Only available in China for the moment, its 128 GB version is sold at 3,599 yuan and 3,999 yuan for its 256 GB version, respectively 456 € and 507 €.
