Following Honor's departure from Huawei in mid-November 2020, the Honor V40 5G was the first product to be introduced to the industry by the newly independent brand. Now, Honor has recently announced the production of a lighter or "light" version of this phone called Honor V40 Lite Luxury Edition. Of course, this is not the international name of this phone and it is just a direct translation from Chinese. It is interesting to know that this smartphone is actually the same nova 8 5G whose processor has changed. Not to mention, with the introduction of the Honor V40 Lite, Honor also unveiled a low-cost tablet called the Honor Tab 7. In the following, we will get more acquainted with the specifications of these two products.

The display refresh rate is 90 Hz and the touch sampling rate is apparently 240 Hz. DCI-P3 color gamut support and "always-on display" (customizable) feature are other features of this smartphone display.
Honor processes V40 Lite to Dimensity 800U chipset (MediaTek product) . The chip - made with 7nm lithography - consists of 2 2.4 GHz Cortx-A76 cores and 6 2 GHz Cortex-A55 cores. The GPU is the Mali-G75, and the built-in 5G modem makes it a fifth-generation phone. This device is equipped with 8 GB of RAM and depending on the model, 128 or 256 GB of internal memory is provided for it, which can not be upgraded. The Honor V40 Lite optics package consists of 4 cameras: a 64-megapixel main camera with an aperture of f/1.9, an 8-megapixel ultraviolet camera (f/2.4), and two depth and macro cameras (each with a resolution of 2 Megapixels and aperture f/2.4).
