Honor is on its approach to releasing its first foldable phone, which will also be the most powerful folding smartphone to date. In its latest teaser, the business has finally announced a launch date, stating that the phone will be available as early as next week.
According to the teaser poster, the Honor Magic V will be released on January 10 in China at 4:30 p.m. PST. Honor’s most recent user interface update, Magic UI 6.0, will also be introduced at the same event.
The poster also includes a close-up of the phone in silver with a textured back panel. The main camera is equipped with three lenses and a dual-tone LED flash. The hinge appears to be identical to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold series, but Honor’s CEO has already verified that it is a self-developed design that is the industry’s narrowest.
On the exterior screen, a centred punch-hole selfie camera is visible, but its resolution is unknown at the present. According to leaks, the outer screen would be 6.5-inches diagonally, while the primary screen will be 8-inches. BOE and Visionox will supply the display panels.
Honor has announced that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip will power it, making it the most powerful folding phone to date. The primary camera will be a 50MP snapper, while the battery capacity will be 5,100 mAh with 66W rapid charging capabilities.
