The delay in Honor V40’s launch was officially confirmed a few days ago, the phone is now scheduled to arrive on January 18. In the meantime, it did a round of Geekbench to flaunt the power of its MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chipset.
The chipset will drive a 90Hz or 120Hz panel with the fastest touch sampling rate ever. The phone will support fast charging – 66W wired and 66W wireless.
There’s a bit of uncertainty about the exact specs as there are three V40 models on the way – vanilla, Pro and Pro+. Pre-registrations for the trio started last week (you can get a peek here, here and here) and official posters are already up in brick and mortar stores.

Anyway, the three V40 models will launch with Magic UI based on Android 10 as seen in benchmarks. This particular unit packs 8 GB of RAM, though expect other options to be available (especially on the Pro and Pro+ versions).
The Honor V40 trio – the first models to be launched by the newly independent brand – will be unveiled on Monday next week.
