Overview Honor X40
Android version and market relevance
The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Honor X40 works on Android 12, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2022. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Honor X40, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.
Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because Honor X40 works great with two SIM cards. And since 2020, after the official launch of 5G networks, it has become very important for most buyers that the new smartphone has high-speed mobile Internet. Honor X40 has support for fifth-generation networks, so you can choose it for purchase if it suits you for other characteristics and price.
Screen, body and battery
It is worth paying attention to good 6.67-inch capacitive OLED touchscreen smartphone Honor X40 with display refresh rate 120 Hz. A real shoveler, which is great for watching videos, surfing the Internet and full-screen games. You will be very surprised at how much information is placed on one screen. But, unfortunately, with one hand you will not be comfortable with using a smartphone. In addition, Honor X40 has very small frames around the screen (speaking in numbers, the screen occupies more than 90% of the area of the entire front panel. And an almost invisible hole in the screen adds recognition to the smartphone and increases the screen area, but does not increase the physical size. The thickness of the case is 7.9 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 5 100 mAh.
Main camera and selfie camera
A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 8 MP Wide. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment weak cameras. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.
The main camera got several modules (dual camera smartphones): 50 MP Wide + 2 MP Macro, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment super cool mobile cameras. Directly without hesitation can buy this smartphone and enjoy your photos and videos shot on it. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.
Processor and Internal Memory
After a lot of leaks, we now know all characteristics of the Honor X40. The smartphone received 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 695 5G (6 nm). RAM is built-in 6 GB and there is a version of 8 GB.
But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 128 GB and plus another option for 256 GB. But memory cards, unfortunately, with this smartphone, you can not use, because the manufacturer did not provide for them a slot.
Price for Honor X40: buy or not to buy?
$215 is the price for Honor X40 at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with a very cool main camera that makes amazing photos and videos, and with a conventional front camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.
And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? Here is the case that it is in Honor X40 that a very powerful battery is installed. And, if you need a smartphone with a very long mode of operation from one battery charge, then we recommend looking at this model, or similar smartphones with a powerful battery.
Honor X40 will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.
