Honor announced its first phone since Huawei separation. The company, now owned by Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology, has a new flagship named Honor View 40. It is a high-end equipment that will be available in China without Google Services, although it could recover these services with its arrival in other markets such as Europe.
One of the most outstanding features of this terminal is its enormous curved screen. The panel OLED of 6.72 inch, officially called Waterfall Curved OLED Display, is capable of yielding a resolution of 2,676 x 1,236. It also has an update frequency of 120 Hz, 800 nits maximum brightness, color support 10 bits and HDR10.
The Honor View 40 broke with part of the hardware scheme that the previous devices in the line had. After separating from Huawei, the company decided to mount a processor in its new high-end terminal MediaTek Dimensity 1000+, which we have already seen in phones like the Oppo Reno5. This chip is powered by technologies GPU Turbo X and Hunter Boost to improve gaming performance.
In addition, the device has 8 GB RAM and two storage versions. One of 128 GB and another of 256 GB. The View 40 focuses on the photographic section offering a main camera of 50 megapixels, a camera 8 megapixel ultra wide angle and one 2 megapixel macro. To this is added the laser focus system. On the front there is a camera 16 megapixels.
Refering to drums, this terminal offers a capacity of 4,000 mAh. The company indicated that it will be compatible with the 66W fast charge. About 15 minutes should be sufficient to reach 60 percent charge and 35 minutes to fully charge. In addition, the Honor View 40 will be compatible with 50W wireless charging.
