Since 2013, Honor has been launching the X-series of smartphones in China. Now, the Chinese manufacturer is gearing up to launch a new X-series device. Today, it took to its Weibo handle to confirm that the Honor X40 will be made official on Sept. 15 in China.
The poster released by the brand does not reveal anything about the X40. Rumors are rife that the X40 lineup also features a model called the Honor X40 Max. So, it’s not clear if the company will make any other X40 models in addition to the standard one.
Some vague reports have claimed that the X40 will be equipped with an OLED panel. It may have support for 40W charging. With around 9 days remaining for the launch, the company is expected to confirm more details about the X40 in the coming days.
Back in July this year, Honor unveiled the Honor X40i in China. The device features a 6.7-inch IPS LCD display that offers a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2388 pixels. It runs on Magic UI 6.1 based on Android 12 OS. It is equipped with a side-facing fingerprint scanner.
The Honor X40i has an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. Its back panel has a 50-megapixel main camera, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and an LED flash. The phone packs a 4,000mAh battery, which supports 40W fast charging.
The X40 is powered by the Dimensity 700 chipset. It is available in China in multiple configurations: 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage for 1,599 Yuan ($230), 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage for 1799 Yuan ($259), and 12 GB RAM + 256 GB storage for 1,999 Yuan ($288). The upcoming X40 is likely to be positioned above the X40i. Hence, it may arrive at a starting price of 1,999 Yuan ($288).
