The top left corner of the screen of the HonorV40 uses a double-punch design. Although it is a double-punch design, the Honor V40 has only one front camera. The front camera uses a 16-megapixel AI lens. One is a colour temperature sensor. The colour temperature sensor is placed in the upper left corner of the screen because the colour temperature of the screen needs to be adjusted according to the ambient light to obtain a better display effect.

The back design of the HonorV40 should be said to make people feel very amazing, especially from the design of the camera to the overall body part, it adopts a ring-by-ring design with a ratio of 1:3:9: 27 isometric rectangles create a multi-dimensional recursive visual structure.
