Newly independent Honor has announced the Honor V40 Lite in China. The phone is a rebadged Huawei nova 8 5G but with MediaTek’s Dimensity 800U at the helm, while the latter is an affordable slate.

HONOR V40 Lite Luxury Edition launched

The latest member of Honor’s V40 lineup features a curved 6.57-inch OLED panel with FHD+ resolution a 90Hz refresh rate. There’s a centered punch hole cut out for its 32MP selfie cam as well as a fingerprint reader hidden underneath the panel.

Around the back, we have a 64MP primary cam alongside an 8MP ultrawide snapper. The two are joined by a pair of 2MP modules for macro photography and depth data. The Dimensity 800U SoC sits at the helm aided by 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage which is not expandable.

Honor revealed the phone is running Magic UI 4.0 based on Android 10. The battery department is headlined by a 3,800 mAh cell which supports 66W fast charging and the required power adapter is supplied in the box.
