The Honor V40 smartphones are touted as worthy Mate 40 alternatives in a new leak
Honor may be one of the last smartphone brands to launch new premium devices in 2020. It is now slated to debut the follow-ups to its V30 and V30 Pro in the last month of this year. The prolific leaker Teme (@RODENT450 on Twitter) now asserts that at least 1 of their successors will have a 6.72-inch display with an up-to-date 120Hz refresh rate.
Then again, the tipster never mentioned whether this possibly advantageous panel is to be LCD or some form of OLED. In addition, this screen is apparently to be of the curved variety, an often polarizing aspect of smartphone design.
Furthermore, the series may get this lines' new Kirin 9000 flagship (if beleaguered) SoC. However, it may only be for the Plus (or V40+) variant, whereas the vanilla model may rock the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ instead.
The extent of the new details on the upcoming flagships end there. All in all, they suggest that (as noted by @RODENT450), Honor plans to unveil a contender to its own parent's new top-end models not so long from now.
