Yesterday, HONOR officially launched its very first foldable - the HONOR Magic V - featuring the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and Magic UI 6.0, starting from 9,999 Yuan (~RM6,580). HONOR's new foldable adopts an advanced waterdrop hinge technology to provide a creaseless and symmetrical display.
When folded, the Magic V features a 6.45" 44° curved OLED outer display with a wider 21.3:9 aspect ratio. The inner display will unfold to a 7.9" creaseless screen for an immersive tablet-like viewing experience. It has up to a 120Hz refresh rate and covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. It is the first foldable smartphone to receive the IMAX Enhanced certification.
Equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and the latest Adreno GPU, the phone offers 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. To manage cooling under heavy workloads, it uses an AI intelligent thermal management system.
Coming to its camera department, the front-facing camera houses a 42MP lens while the rear camera module includes a 50MP main camera. The device will come with Magic UI 6.0 out of the box, which features HONOR's AI Engine, Magic Live. According to HONOR, Magic Live acts as users' personal assistant as it learns their habits and behaviors to provide tailored recommendations. The system also supports Multi Windows for screen splitting.
Powering the foldable is a 4750mAh battery that supports the 66W HONOR SuperCharge. It can charge up the phone to 50% in just 15 minutes. For security, it uses a dual-security system (HTEE+QTEE). The HONOR Magic V is available in three color options: Black, Space Silver, and Burnt Orange. It will go on sale in China starting from 18 January. Besides the 12+256 GB variant, there's also another 12+512 GB option priced at 10,999 Yuan (~RM7,238).
