MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

The Honor V40 is the Honor brand’s first smartphone since its separation from Huawei. Naturally, the big question on everyone’s mind is, Does it have Google Mobile Services and apps? 

Since the initial launch was for the China market, it is doubtful that the ones targeted at the Chinese market has GMS and apps. There is no word yet about its availability internationally. An international variant will be expected to support Google services and apps.
