Honor’s latest gaming phone, X40 GT, has been released in China. The Snapdragon 888-powered handset features a 144Hz screen and a 50MP triple camera array. Here, we will look through the specifications, features, availability, and expected price of the Honor X40 GT in Nepal.
Honor X40 GT Overview:
The design of the X40 GT is strikingly similar to that of the Honor Magic 4 Lite. It has a big circular camera bump in the middle with “GT” plastered onto the center of the module. Honor offers the smartphone in three color options: Magic Night Black, Titanium Silver, and Racing Black.
While the Night Black and Titanium Silver have a minimal design, the Racing Black goes for an aggressive gamer look with its carbon fiber finish, racing stripe, and green accents.
The Honor X40 GT sports a 6.81-inch FHD+ LCD display. While the screen is not AMOLED, the 144Hz refresh rate and 480Hz touch sampling rate are its saving grace.
The phone packs a dated but still capable Snapdragon 888 chipset, based on a 5nm process. Released in 2020, it was Qualcomm’s flagship chip for that year. Moreover, it has a Cortex-X1 clocked at 2840 MHz, three cores Cortex-A78 at 2420 MHz, and four Cortex-A55 at 1800 MHz.
Honor has fitted the phone with a 13-layer cooling solution that it claims can reduce the X40 GT’s surface temperature by 1° Celcius.
The Honor X40 GT is available with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The software side of things is handled by Honor’s Magic UI 6.1 which is based on Android 12.

Talking about cameras, the Honor X40 GT comes with a triple rear camera system. Here, the primary 50MP sensor is supported by a 2MP macro and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies and video calls, there is a single 16MP camera housed inside a hole-punch notch.
