Huawei's premium sub-brand Honor is now slated to launch its flagship V40 series in December 2020. The leaker @RODENT450 claims to have dug the more prevalent of its specs up in a new Twitter post. They include a 50MP primary camera, its parent's new 66 watt (W) charging system and a 120 hertz (Hz) FHD+ screen.

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.

Besides this, the Honor V40s are also now projected to come with the same 66W SuperCharge power brick introduced with Huawei's Mate 40 series, not to mention 40W wireless charging.

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 Honor V40 series is also now believed to retain their predecessors' dual punch-hole selfie cameras. On the opposite side, Teme predicts a 50MP main shooter in a triple- to quad-lens arrangement.

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.
