Although rumors were already circulating about Honor Magic V, which is the first folding screen smartphone of the former sub-brand of Huawei. We had already told you about Magic V at the end of December, but now the Chinese company has confirmed its official presentation date through a tweet on its Twitter account.

As we can see in the released teaser, the company has scheduled a virtual event to reveal the Honor Magic V. The conference will take place next Monday, January 10th, from 6:30 am (USA time).
Honor hasn’t provided many details about its new foldable phone, so its technical specifications are unknown. However, thanks to the promotional video, everything seems to indicate that Honor Magic V will have a form factor similar to that of Galaxy Z Fold 3, therefore it will fold horizontally.
Besides, we can see that its cover display will be equipped with a hole for the selfie camera, while the camera module on the back will include three lenses. Just outside the module is dual-LED flash and light sensors and PDAF (Phase Detection Autofocus).
Apart from the presentation date, there is no precise information on the configuration of this Honor, its price, and when (and “if”) it will be available for sale in our country. The only certainty, for Honor CEO George Zhao, is that Honor Magic V will be foldable that will “dominate” 2022.
Possible Technical Specifications
According to the leaked specs, the screen of the Honor Magic V will be 8-inch, where the main one will offer a 120Hz refresh rate and the external one will have 90Hz. Rumor has it that it will be the first folding ever with the flagship SoC of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. As for charging, the device could support 66W fast charging technology. However, the actual capacity of the battery remains unknown.
If the Honor Magic V lands on the global market, Google services will undoubtedly be present. Honor, remember, does not suffer from the same problem as Huawei, having managed to escape the US ban with the transition from a sub-brand to a totally autonomous company.
