HONOR X40 5G's specifications leaked ahead of launch: Check features
HONOR is gearing up to launch a new X-series smartphone dubbed the "X40 5G" on September 15. To recall, the company recently released a teaser of the handset showcasing its design, too. Now, tipster Digital Chat Station has leaked the key specifications of the device. It will reportedly feature a curved 120Hz display, a Snapdragon 695 chip, and a 5,100mAh battery with fast-charging support.
Why does this story matter?
- The X40 5G will be the latest addition to HONOR's portfolio of mid-range smartphones.
- With its curved design and 120Hz OLED display, the phone will certainly attract those looking for a premium-looking device with a good display.
- However, going with the same processor as in the X30 and the dual rear camera setup could turn out to be buzz killers in the market.
The handset will feature a 120Hz curved OLED screen
The HONOR X40 5G will feature a centrally-aligned punch-hole cut-out, curved edges, and an under-display fingerprint reader. On the rear, it will sport a ring-shaped camera unit. The device will bear a 6.67-inch Full-HD+ (1080x2400 pixels) curved OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, high-frequency PWM eye protection dimming, and 10-bit color support. Dimensions-wise, it will be 7.9mm thick and weigh 172g.
It will flaunt a 50MP main camera
The HONOR X40 5G will be equipped with a dual rear camera unit, including a 50MP main camera and a 2MP auxiliary snapper. On the front, it will sport an 8MP shooter for selfies and video calls.
A Snapdragon 695 chip will fuel the smartphone
The HONOR X40 5G will be powered by a Snapdragon 695 chipset, coupled with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. Under the hood, it will boot Android 12-based Magic UI 6.1 and house a 5,100mAh battery with 40W fast-charging support. Connectivity options should include dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 5G, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Type-C port.
