HONOR announced that the V40 series launch will be postponed to 22 January 2021

The smartphone was scheduled to launch on January 18 but Honor postponed the launch date to January 22, citing conference venue and equipment-related issues as the reason.

The smartphone will also be accompanied by Pro and Pro+ versions. Honor V40 is set to launch and go on sale on January 22 in China. While the certification doesn't reveal anything else, possible key specifications and details about Honor V40 have already surfaced online.

Based on leaks so far, Honor V40 will most likely be a mid-range smartphone. The display could have curved edges and the upper-left corner of the screen may have a pill-shaped cutout.

In the photography department, the phone is said to come with a combination of a 50-megapixel primary sensor, 8-megapixel sensor and 2-megapixel sensor.

Honor V40 is expected to draw power from a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ processor, coupled with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Huawei has been a bargaining chip in the US-Sino trade war since mid-2019 and as such has been dragging its Honor brand along.

Under the hood, it should run on Android 10 and pack a 4,000mAh battery with 66W wired fast-charging support. In this social media post, the company teased the Honor V40's new graphics acceleration engine, dubbed the GPU Turbo X. Honor even shared a short video teaser, which demonstrated the graphics acceleration feature that will arrive in the upcoming device.
