According to the reliable leaker @RODENT950, Honor's road to the V40 launch event has become increasingly rocky. The OEM was originally slated to unveil these devices in December 2020, although that obviously never panned out. It may have subsequently released teasers for these phones including a January 4, 2020 launch date, only to allegedly push it back to January 18 instead.
Nevertheless, it seems the V30 and 30 Pro successors are definitely on the way in any case. A model number previously linked to the V40 (YOK-AN10) has been approved by the TÜV Rheinland authority to use "Safe Charging" and "Safe Wireless Charging". The former, according to its 3C certification, can go up to a rate of 66 watts (W), much like Huawei's Mate 40 flagships.
The latter spec is less certain at this point; however, it is just possible the V40s might step up to the top-flight 50W wireless system from its former parent company. In other news, @RODENT950 also claims to have heard that the V40 Pro might have a circular rear camera module rather than the Nova 8-esque housing hinted at earlier.
However, this rear-panel hump is depicted as designed to mimic a watch-face, rather than the hollow ring from some other recent releases, the Mate 40s included. Otherwise, the V40 variants are thought to come with curving displays, all of which might be 6.72-inch FHD+ 120Hz panels.
