Honor And Its Announcement For The First Post Huawei Phone

The announcement for Honor has been done for the new V40 5G flagship phone. Huawei sold the company off to a Shenzhen-based consortium of Chinese partners. V40 phone is exclusive to China but Honor’s V-series usually appealed to the rest of the world under “View” branding.

As far as its specifications are concerned, the V40 5G flagship phone has a 6.72-inch OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. The smartphone is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ processor. It has the primary camera which has a 1/1.56-inch 50-megapixel sensor. In addition, the phone consists of a 4,000mAh battery that can be charged wirelessly at 50W or at 66W with a cable.

According to reports, Huawei stated that it was selling off Honor in November due to “tremendous pressure” and a difficulty to secure an adequate supply chain. At a time, Honor was operated independently from Huawei and it relied on the root company for its technology like HiSense’s Kirin processors.

The development and settlement for the V40 5G flagship phones have been planned before November last year. Now, Huawei has separated itself from Honor and the international “View 40” version of the V40 may be able to ship with Google services. Departing from Honor would allow Huawei to sell phones in Western markets without the disadvantage of relying on Huawei’s AppGallery.  Still, it cannot involve Google’s Play Store outside of China where Google has no presence.

Honor does not enjoy the advantage of relying on Huawei’s supply chain. It is now going to establish itself as a strong brand in its own way once the phones are launched. As of now, the phone is available in China with prices starting at 3,599 yuan (~$550) with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and 3,999 yuan (~$620) with the storage of 256GB.
