A possible Honor V40 5G appears in a new leak with 66W charging

Honor's first post-Huawei flagship phones are expected to be known as the V40 series. They are also predicted not to launch with a premium Kirin processor as its forebears did. However, it now looks like they might do so with one holdover from its past as a Huawei subsidiary: 66W charging out of the box.

Honor's first round of post-Huawei flagship phones are now projected to launch in January 2021. The latest leaks suggest that this series - which may comprise the V40 and V40 Pro at the least - will rock the Dimensity 1000+ SoC in place of the Kirin 9000, even though the V30s had the latter's predecessor.

This, obviously, may be due to the fact the brand has cut ties with its former parent and is now likely to emerge as its competitor at various price-tiers. However, it seems that Honor has broken away from the Chinese electronics giant with charging tech also seen in the latest Mate 40 series.

This is 66W, delivered through the SuperCharge standard in the Pro, Pro+ and RS variants of that Huawei flagship line. The same rate is seen in a new Honor device reportedly certified by the regulator 3C. It has a model number (YOK-AN10) allegedly associated with the V40.

Therefore, it may debut with this particular premium spec. Otherwise, the V40 line is thought to have a rear camera module dominated by an extra-lage 50MP sensor, most probably accompanied by 3 other lenses.

The Honor V40s are also slated to share a 6.72-inch FHD+ display with a dual punch-hole selfie camera. Finally, the series is (of course) projected to be 5G in 2021.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
