1 billion color retina super-sensing screen knows the temperature, brightness and darkness

In terms of screen, Honor V40 is also ushered in a new upgrade, equipped with a 6.72-inch 80° ultra-curved OLED waterfall screen with a screen-to-body ratio of up to 93.24%. What’s more worth mentioning is that this is also the current industry-leading 1 billion-color retina-level super-sensing screen. Not only does the pixel density reach 440 PPI at the retina level, it also supports 1 billion-color primary color display, and the color depth is 64 million higher than the traditional 16.7 million colors. The color transition is more delicate and smooth, bringing a super visual experience.

The Honor V40 screen supports P3 wide color gamut display, with richer colors and more realistic restoration. At the same time, it also introduces a color management system for the first time. It can be accurate regardless of whether the picture, video, or App uses sRGB, P3 or Rec.2020 color coding format. Ground conversion to P3 color gamut, showing rich color and detail reproduction on the screen. In addition, each Honor V40 screen is calibrated after the production line color temperature, ensuring that every user has the same accurate and perfect color experience. At the same time, the Honor V40 has a screen refresh rate of up to 120Hz. When browsing the web and playing games, you can see less smear and smoother display effects, allowing consumers to intuitively feel the high-quality screen details and colors.

Through a professional color temperature sensor and ambient light sensor, Honor V40 also integrates an ambient light management system, which can sense the temperature and brightness of the ambient light in real time, and dynamically adjust the color according to the color temperature under different light to achieve automatic color temperature calibration, 4096-level screen Brightness adjustment, so that the screen always maintains the best visual impression. As a result, Honor V40 also obtained the first TÜV Rheinland Global Eye Care 2.0 certification.

Three core engines release performance potential to fully escort the gaming experience

Honor V40 integrates three innovative technologies, including GPU Turbo X graphics acceleration engine, Hunter Boost game full blood engine, and super-sensing touch engine based on the basic chip capabilities, to escort the gaming experience in all directions.

The newly upgraded GPU Turbo X graphics acceleration engine breaks the previous idea of improving GPU performance in game screen rendering, and optimizes game logic processing and rendering processing globally. Optimize the picture quality through the global perception of the AI model, reduce the total load of graphics processing, and further optimize the resource allocation between GPU/CPU to achieve more efficient graphics rendering, higher frame rate of the game, and better Game experience.

The newly added Hunter Boost hunter game full engine, just turn on the Hunter Boost switch in the game assistant, so that the chip can operate at full frequency and full load at full speed, and the gaming-grade heat dissipation back clip can keep the phone for a long time Calm down, fully release the ability of the chip, and accelerate with full blood.

The Honor V40 has a built-in super-sensing touch engine that uses AI algorithms to achieve chip-level touch response, making the 120Hz screen refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate perfect match, and the screen response speed is faster, helping players to be one step ahead in the game. The super-sensing touch engine can also learn from massive amounts of data, and dynamically adjust the anti-mistouch area and mistouch improvement schemes according to different scenarios such as games, typing, and video, effectively avoiding the problem of mistouching the edges of the super curved screen.
