At the beginning of the conference, Zhao Ming, CEO of Honor Terminal Co., Ltd. said that the new Honor will be reborn in a cocoon, to go far, always adhere to the continuous investment in technological innovation, adhere to the strict standards in quality control, adhere to the most intimate customer service to consumers.
For the new positioning, Zhao Ming said in 1 + 8 + N product strategy, Honor will create a new world of wisdom belonging to everyone, to create a global iconic technology brand. “New Honor has five R & D bases, more than 100 innovation labs. Among all our employees, more than 50% of them are R&D engineering staff.”
The Honor V40 features an 80° hyper-curved waterfall screen with a 93.2% screen-to-body ratio. Micro four curved surface, anti-mistake touch. The entire thickness of 8.04mm, weight 186g, not only in the appearance of the slender and elegant, a grasp of the surplus but also in the visual to bring a comfortable and immersive viewing experience.
It is understood that the Honor V40 uses a 6.72-inch curved OLED screen with a 1.34mm black edge on both sides of the top view, a 120Hz high refresh rate, and a 300Hz touch sampling rate. Retina-level resolution of 1236×2676, pixel density than the mainstream FHD resolution of 1920×1080 increased by about 15%, the screen PPI up to 440, the industry’s first German TÜV Rheinland global eye protection certification 2.0. 1 billion colors original color display, DCI-P3 wide color gamut, global peak brightness 800 nits, contrast ratio 5000000:1, support HDR10, 4096 level hardware dimming.
The back is unique, in addition to the recognizable rectangular triple camera module (space porthole-shaped main camera), but also the AG frosting process and high-gloss glass seamlessly, Night Black, Titanium Air Silver, Rose Gold three colorways, bringing a sense of order and beauty.
The core processor selected is the 7nm process 5G SoC MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ (Cortex-A77+Mali-G77). Zhao Ming pointed out that many manufacturers are stacking hardware, the product only plays about 70% of the ability. Honor future to a breakthrough in the system architecture and tuning. By embracing global excellent industry chain partners, give full play to the performance of excellent devices to achieve 90% or even 100% of the performance.
He believes that this requires integrated software and hardware tuning at three levels: software and hardware acceleration engine, and SoC algorithm. “We use the same chip, operating system as our friends, and still maintain differentiation.” He said that by introducing optimization technologies such as Link Turbo, GPU Turbo, 5G engine, and memory management engine, it is possible to have better performance and experience with the same chip.
GPU Turbo technology was initially based on Huawei’s self-developed Kirin chip, which coordinates CPU and GPU computing. Zhao Ming said that this time, using industry chips, the concept of GPU Turbo was embedded to launch GPU Turbo X technology, which can be integrated with many industry chips in the future.
In terms of photography, the Honor V40 is equipped with a 1/1.56-inch 50-megapixel super-sensitive main camera (Sony IMX766), following the core RYYB super-sensitive solution, 4-in-1 equivalent 2.0μm pixels, with stronger dark light shooting capability, support for handheld Super Night View, professional mode and Super Portrait Engine.

Besides, the software, Honor V40 made a full range of adaptations, including GPU TurboX super game performance guarantee, game assistant, 4D vibration, the image on the 4 cm macro / 4K time-lapse / 1920fps slow-motion / 3mic recording zoom/front and rear dual view video, agile personalized rest screen display, intelligent multi-window, AI subtitles, full translation, multi-screen collaboration, privacy protection (cast screen when the message only mobile display, photo sharing desensitization, browser anti-tracking, application permission minimization, etc.).
Other aspects, Honor V40 using a single-cell three-electrode super-fast charging solution, built-in 4000mAh battery, support 66W super-fast charging, 15 minutes to 60% full, high version support 50W wireless fast charging. Support a new generation of GPU Turbo X global optimization, dual linear motors, dual speakers. The Honor V40 Smart Dual 5G feature supports all bands of the four major carriers and can be called Super 5G all-network, with a download speed of up to 2GB/sec on the current network.
Finally, the Honor V40 price was announced. Honor V40 price for 8GB + 128GB version is 3599 yuan, 8GB + 256GB version priced at 3999 yuan, will be officially opened for sale at midnight today.
