Honor (formerly the sub-brand of Huawei) is known for announcing its V series flagships in December. The Honor V10 series and Honor V20 lineup were made official in December 2017 and December 2018, respectively. Last year, the Chinese brand had unveiled the Honor V30 and Honor V30 Pro in November. Rumors surrounding the Honor V30 series have been claiming that it will go official in December this year. However, a reliable tipster has claimed that the Honor V40 series launch could be postponed to January 2021.
Apart from revealing the delayed arrival of the Honor V40 series, tipster Teme claimed that the V40 series, as well as the Honor 40 series, are products developed by Huawei. As it is known, Honor is no longer a sub-brand of Huawei as the brand has been sold to new owners in November.
It appears that the development of the Honor V40 series and Honor 40 will continue under the new ownership. The V40 series is expected to arrive in European markets as the View V40 series. Considering that the Honor V40 will be debuting a bit late in China, it is likely that its European release may encounter some delay.
Honor flagship phones have usually featured the most powerful Kirin chipsets. However, a recent report had revealed that the Honor V40 series could be fueled by the Dimensity 1000+ chipset. Hopefully, more details on the V40 series will surface in the coming weeks.
The tipster also revealed that the Honor 40 Pro which is expected to debut around the second quarter next year could be the first phone from the brand with Super Zoom feature. It suggests that the Honor 40 Pro could be equipped with a periscope lens for better optical zoom experience.
