Magic V, the first Honor phone with a foldable screen, receives a video teaser and an unofficial list of specifications

Honor Magic V could be the first “Huawei phone” with a foldable screen that you can buy in Europe ready equipped with the Google service package. Possibly at a better price than the P50 Pocket, Huawei’s new foldable phone.

Officially, the Magic V and P50 Pocket come from completely different companies and will have nothing in common. In practice, Honor Magic V could have gone a bit through Huawei’s “kitchen”, at least during the lunch break.

According to the first official video teaser, the new smartphone is a flip phone, with a foldable screen on the inside and a camera on the outside of the case, delimited by a single large ornament. For comparison, the Huawei P50 Pocket comes with two camera ornaments, circular in shape and quite large.


Returning to the new Honor model, Digital Chat Station (a well-known source of rumors) describes the Honor V prototype as a two-screen phone, one main with a 120Hz refresh rate and a secondary one, placed on the outside of the case, operating at 90Hz. Only the main screen would have a single perforation for the camera, applied in the upper left corner. The main camera will have a 50MP main sensor, possibly the Sony IMX700 model, taken from the Honor Magic 3 Pro Plus model. The configuration is based on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and a battery with a 66W fast charging function. The phone comes with Android 12 and the Google service pack already installed.

From other sources we find that the main screen will touch in the extended mode reaches the diagonal of 8 inches and works at a resolution of 2200 × 2480 pixels. The screen on the outside of the case, called the Cover Screen, will have a respectable 6.5-inch diagonal, suggesting that the Magic V folds rather like a notebook and a clamshell phone. Instead, the camera would have a main sensor with a native resolution of 108MP, used in 9: 1 binning mode to deliver an effective resolution of 12MP. The front camera would be a 16MP model, without too much pretension in terms of image quality. The 4500mAh battery could actually be a combination of two batteries housed in the two halves of the case.

Honor has not set a specific release date for the new Magic V phone, it remains to be seen whether the Chinese manufacturer is just waiting for the optimal conditions for a launch with high media exposure, or simply we are dealing with a product at the stage of promise.
