Honor just dropped its first smartphone since its separation from Huawei. The Honor V40 5G arrives with a MediaTek chipset, a 50 MP camera, super-fast wired and wireless charging, and a high-refresh-rate display.

The Honor V40 5G is priced at CNY 3,599 (Roughly Rs 40,570) for the base 8GB/128GB model, while the 8GB/256 configuration will set you back CNY 3,999 (Roughly Rs 45,100).

The Honor V40 5G sports a 6.72-inch OLED panel with curved sides and 2676*1236 pixels resolution. The display features a 120Hz refresh rate and a 300Hz touch sampling rate. The device comes with Magic UI 4.0 with Android 10.

In optics, the Honor V40 5G has a 50 MP RYYB 1/1.56-inch sensor at the helm. The other camera sensors include an 8 MP ultrawide shooter and a 2 MP macro camera, while the layout also consists of a laser autofocus module and an LED flash. On the front, the V40 5G has a 16 MP selfie shooter paired with a colour spectrum sensor in the pill-shaped notch.
