Photo Announcement. Honor X40 GT is an inexpensive flagship smartphone with almost no... what?

Honor has announced a very specific Honor X40 GT smartphone in its native China.

I'll say right away that the newcomer does not look like "namesake" Honor X40 and Honor X40i at all. So we calmly forget about them.

Let's start with the price to give you a better feel for the specificity of this smartphone.

Very inexpensive. ¥2099 (₽18200, $285) and ¥2299 (₽19900, $313) for the 8+256GB and 12+256GB versions respectively. Here. Immediately at the same time we know the amount of memory. Memory, by the way, is fast, top-end. LPDDR5 operational, UFS3.1 permanent. (Support for memory cards, obviously, no).

Attention�Yeh, chipset. Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. This is last year's flagship chipset from Qualcomm, if anyone has forgotten. (Well, yes, formally it is considered the 2020 chipset, but it has only been actively launched since January 2021). In AnTuTu, I predict 700-800 thousand points, which, by modern standards, is outrageous power.

Attention, screen. Huge, 6.81 "(112 cm²). Normal high resolution - 1080x2388 (385 ppi). And - ta-dam - the refresh rate is up to 144 Hz! That is, the smartphone is clearly sharpened for toys.

The battery is medium, 4800 mAh. But it is equipped with ultra-fast charging - 66 watts. (They promise that for charging with himFor up to 90% it will take 30 minutes).

There is support for 5G networks, an NFC module, Type-C, a sixth Wi-Fi and a side fingerprint scanner. No standard audio output.

And, finally, what did you save money on? On cameras, of course. 16 MP front, 50+2+2 MP rear. Not a flagship set at all. And, of course, no optical stabilization. What kind of sensor is used in the main module is not specified. Among the "fifty dollars" there are also cool ones. But intuition tells you that it is better not to roll your lip.

How Honor X40 GT is compatible with our LTE networks is unclear. Support setreceived frequencies are not voiced.

I wonder if it will appear outside the Celestial Empire?
