Honor V40 price and specifications have been officially announced in China and it is the first phone to launch post the Huawei-Honor separation in November. To recall, Huawei sold its Honor brand owing to difficulties with the supply chain caused by US sanctions. Though Honor mostly operated independently, it relied on Huawei for its HiSense’s Kirin processors. This could also mean that the Honor V40 global variant (called Honor View 40) could come with Google Play Services installed. The Honor V40 features a pill-shaped dual punch-hole display, a curved waterfall screen, and a rectangular rear camera module with triple sensors. Here’s a look at the Honor V40 price, specifications, and other details.
