The Honor V40 continues the keynote set by the V30 series last year, with an excellent experience as the starting point, incorporating Honor’s latest technology into it, giving users the best experience. Last year, the Honor V30 series used the same IMX600 image sensor as the Mate30 series, providing an excellent photo experience, and the HONOR V40 not only continued the image tone set by the V30 series, but also adopted a new large-size 50-megapixel sensor ultra-sensitive camera The system has also been further improved in image functions.
Glory President Zhao Ming once emphasized at the Glory V30 conference: Glory spent four years building the V series into the flagship product of the Glory brand, which is a masterpiece of technology. So what is the performance of the V40 as the successor to the Honor V30 series? Next, let’s take a look at how the Honor V40 performs.
In an era where “appearance” is valued, the “look and feel” of mobile phones affects users’ choices of mobile phones. The Honor V40 is equipped with three colors of Magic Night Black, Space Silver, and Rose Gold, and is equipped with a hyperboloid screen. The appearance is further than last year’s V30 series.
