Honor is set to release a new smartphone and the specs of the upcoming device are fairly similar to the Huawei Nova 8 SE. A TENAA listing shows a device bearing the model HJC-AN00 which will sport a diagonal screen measuring 6.53 inches.

Other than the diagonal screen, the mystery Honor phone will also have a Dimensity 800U chipset, 66W fast charging capability and a 3,800 mAh battery. From the preliminary specs alone, it seems quite clear that Honor is borrowing a device from its parent company where the logo will only be the one to differentiate it from the Huawei Nova 8 SE according to Digital Chat Station.

Other key features of the mystery Honor phone include a 60Hz refresh rate for its OLED panel, full HD+ resolution and a 16 MP front-facing camera. At the back, the device will have a quarter of the main cameras. This includes a 64 MP, 8 MP, 2 MP and 2MP setup, GSM Arena bared.

Seeing that the Honor smartphone carries practically similar specs to the Huawei Nova 8 SE, it would be sensible to note that it will be priced not far from its suggested retail price. The Huawei Nova 8 SE retails for roughly $390. Though no official price has been revealed, the mystery Honor phone which could be part of the Honor V40 series may be priced somewhere in the vicinity of $350.

It should be noted that the Huawei Nova 8 series is also tipped to be launched in December. The Honor V40 Series will be launched separately.

The Huawei Nova 8 SE was launched earlier this month, boasting of a quad camera setup. A “High Edition’ of the phone with 5G support was also launched at the time, NDTV reported.

Back in October, it was reported that Honor would continue to manufacture phones despite the difficulties that Huawei is experiencing. Expected at the December event are units running on two different chipsets.

Some units will run on the Dimensity 1000+ while others will rely on a Kirin 9000 CPU. Other rumored specs of the series include two front-facing cameras and a 50MP main camera with an RYYB sensor. The series will also bring 66W charging over a wire and 40W wirelessly.
