Honor decided to start the year with a blast, and sent a press release, revealing the launch date of its new device.
The Honor Magic V, the company’s first foldable phone, will be launched on January 10 at 11.30 AM UTC in China. The event will be available to watch online, and there will be a link for the stream once the date arrives.
The foldable phone will have a vertical hinge, closing inwards. We can see from the promo image that the cover display will come with a punch-hole screen, while the main cameras on the back will be three. The main shooter (on top) and the ultra-wide-angle camera (on the bottom) are clearly visible, but we’ll need confirmation on the specific of the third snapper. There’s also a dual-LED flash and some light and PDAF sensors.
The Honor Magic V is also confirmed to be the first foldable with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, making it the first true flagship of 2022 for the independent brand as well. Rumors also suggested 66W fast charging and Android 12 out of the box. Honor is not going to say a word about GMS, since the event is in China, but once/if the Magic V makes it globally, it will have Google Services.
