Huawei is a brand that many of us are familiar with when it comes to smartphones, and to a certain extent, Honor as well who used to be under Huawei’s banner. However, the company has since been split off from Huawei and it looks like they wasted no time in launching their first smartphone – the Honor View40 5G.
This is the first smartphone from Honor ever since they left Huawei and it looks like they’re trying to establish themselves in their own way and want to shed the image of being a Huawei sub-brand. The View40 5G seems to be a step in the right direction where not only does it pack some impressive hardware, but it has a decent price tag to match.
The View40 5G will come with a 6.72-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 800 nits of maximum brightness. Under the hood, the phone will be powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000+ chipset with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 4,000mAh battery to boot. The cameras on the phone include a 50MP main camera on the back, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro. There is also a laser module that will help with autofocusing. On the front, there will also be a 16MP shooter.
The phone, as its name implies, will also support 5G. As for pricing, the View40 will retail at $555 for the 128GB model and $618 for the 256GB model, but the company has not mentioned if there are plans to bring it to markets outside of China for now.
