New Honor V40 phone appears with a familiar design

Yordan, 16 March 2021

Honor has officially separated from Huawei, but at that point a lot of products were inevitably too far along in the pipeline to change. A new device called “Honor V40 Light Luxury Edition” has appeared online, and it looks just like the Huawei nova 8 series from the back - an oval island with one huge lens, three smaller cameras and a single LED flash.

The phone is expected to arrive as Honor V40 Lite, and it looks spectacular in the hands-on photos. The blue-green color with mirror finish bends the light in a magnificent way, while the white option appears to have a matte glass on top, adding a pearl-like gradient.

Thanks to these photos we are also pretty confident the new Honor V40 phone will have an OLED panel, given that a conventional power key is visible, therefore the fingerprint scanner is under the display.

What we don’t know is whether the 2.5D curved front will have one camera or two - if it's a sole shooter, we’re looking at a rebranded nova 8, if there is a dual snapper, it is the nova 8 Pro.

This one looks like some of the new Xiaomi phones.. Maybe, Honor is Xiaomi sub-brand now, who knows haha

Honor was poorly available in Europe and USA. Too much embedded in China, not so cheap at all and far from Samsung or even Huawei. It is unlikely to repeat Huawei's success.
