The Honor Magic V’s hinge design appears to have a complicated mechanical structure, and when fully folded, the screen resembles a water drop.

In addition, the exterior screen is curved, and the smartphone’s notch highlights the camera, which is centered on the device.

The inner screens are securely held together when the camera is closed, and the camera module rises slightly above the rest of the camera’s frame.

According to a rumor, the flagship will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, making it the first foldable phone to have the newest Snapdragon processor.

Honor’s erstwhile parent firm Huawei just announced the P50 Pocket foldable phone in China, which features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G SoC.

Zhao Ming, Honor’s CEO, has stated that 

“the Magic V’s design will be stunning, and its flagship huge screen will be a major draw. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU is likely to be used in this smartphone, which will be released in January 2022. With its “most comprehensive structural design,” he claims that the foldable phone’s screen will be the greatest folding screen on the market. The Honor Magic V, includes complicated hinge technology that will be optimized on a software level.”

Ming took a jab at the competition, claiming that some companies have developed smaller folding displays, which he claims goes against the original objective of folding phones.

  • A dual-screen design is expected for the Honor Magic V. 
  • BOE and Visionox are likely to deliver the Magic V panels. 
  • The primary foldable screen on the inside is 8 inches wide, while the exterior panel is 6.5 inches wide. 
  • An ultra-thin flexible glass (UTG) cover will remain on the screen.

According to a tweet, the Honor Magic V smartphone will be released in China on January 10th.
