HONOR View 40

The Honor View 40 is powered by the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus chipset, with 8GB of RAM and GPU Turbo X optimizations for gaming. This also means it is 5G compatible across the world. 

The Honor View 40 has three cameras on the back: a 50MP RYYB main camera with a 1/1.56-inch sensor and 4-in-1 pixel binning, an 8MP ultra-wide shooter and a 2MP macro lens. There’s also a laser module for faster autofocus. 

On the front is a dual punch-hole notch, but the second element is just a color temperature sensor.

The HONOR View40 works with a waterfall cured 7.72-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2676 x 1236 pixels. The HONOR View40 smartphone’s display is 10-bit (8+2-bit) with OLED tech, delivering over 1 billion colours directly into your face. This device’s display works with a 120Hz image refresh rate with up to 300Hz touch response. This panel covers the entirety of the DCI-P3 colour space and works with HDR10 support.

Under the hood, this device has a 4000mAh battery with the ability to charge at great speed, thanks to 66W SuperCharge tech. The battery in this device can charge up to 60 percent capacity in approximately 35 minutes! Wireless charging is here too, at up to 50W (allowing up to 50 percent total charge in approximately 30 minutes).

This device also has NSA/SA 5G connectivity with a dual-SIM tray for switching. This device also works with an infrared port (for controlling your television) and always-on display. You’ll have NFC, multi-window multi-tasking, and a variety of sensors. Sensors include proximity, ambient light, gravity, accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, and fingerprint sensor (under-display, optical).

The Honor View 40 is now available in China and starts at CNY 3,599 (around £400) for the 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage variant and goes up to CNY 3,999 (about £450) for the 8GB and 256GB option. Colour options include Midnight Black, Titanium Silver and Rose Gold.
