Honor V40 was approved by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China. A source in China under the nickname Digital Chat Station said that this series of models will be officially released on January 12.

At the same time, the company's CEO Zhao Ming made it clear at a meeting with employees that Honor's goal is to become number one in the domestic mobile phone market. Zhao also mentioned that Honor plans to release its V40 series mobile phones in January 2021, but did not name an exact date.

According to Chinese regulators, the Honor V40 smartphone will be equipped with a 66-watt Huawei HW-110600C0x charger.

According to current information, Honor V40 will be equipped with a Dimensity 1000+ chip, the most powerful processor from Mediatek today, a 120 Hz screen. In addition, the phone will support fast wireless charging.

Rumor has it that the Honor V40 will NOT have physical volume keys across the waterfall screen. The main sensor of the rear camera will have a resolution of 50 MP. The novelty will work on the Android 10 operating system with the Magic UI 4.0 branded shell.

The cost of the device is not named.

Earlier, NV wrote that the Honor brand, which recently became an independent company after the sale of Zhixin New Information Technology Co. Ltd., announced its ambitious plans.

Honor planned to produce about 100 million smartphones, and has already contacted its component suppliers in the United States to report this.

Honor CEO Zhao Ming says the company will soon become the leading smartphone brand in China. He is confident that Honor will be able to ship at least 100 million smartphones next year. It is worth noting that Xiaomi overcame this figure in 2015 and 2018.

But it is not yet known whether the company will be able to produce the required number of components, as it will likely have to go through the approval process in the United States due to the inclusion of Huawei in the list of sanctions.
