Honor unveils its first foldable smartphone, the Magic V

Honor has unveiled its first foldable phone, the Magic V.

This is a dual-screen device. It has a 431PPI external display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 and a refresh rate of 120Hz. Users can access a 7.9-inch, 381PPI display, which has a 2272 x 1984 resolution, 90Hz refresh rate and 10:9 aspect ratio, if they open it up.
The screens of the Z Fold 3 are a little larger than the ones on the other two. Honor claims the Magic V is the first foldable phone.

The company says the display is "creaseless" because of its water-drop hinge. The Find N foldable uses a similar style of hinge.

When folded, the Magic V is 72.7mm wide and 14.3mm thick, but when opened, it is 141.1mm wide and 6.7mm thick. The 160.4mm tall case has a 4,750mAh battery. Honor says you can fully charge the battery in 40 minutes or 50 percent of its capacity in 15 minutes.

There are five cameras on the phone. Honor calls the rear three-camera array a "spectrum enhanced camera." The three are all 50MP. There's a 42MP camera for selfies.

The Magic V is powered by the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Chipset, which has a 5G modem and a Adreno 730 graphics card. The Magic V has up to 512GB of storage and stereo speakers. It uses Honor's new MagicUI 6.0, which is based on Android 12. An independent security chip stores passwords and fingerprints.

There are three color options for the device: black, space silver and burnt orange. The silver and black models weigh less than the orange one. The Magic V will only be available in China. The 512GB version costs 10,999, while the 256GB version costs 9,999. The Magic V will be on sale in January.
