Honor is about to launch its first foldable smartphone, and the Chinese manufacturer has already unveiled a teaser video of the device’s design. We discover that it will look a lot like Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 3.
On its YouTube channel, Honor shared a video featuring its first foldable smartphone, the Magic V. The Chinese manufacturer officially revealed the existence of the smartphone a few days ago, but it was not known until now. it was going to look like. Now we know that the smartphone will come directly compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 with its screen that folds inward.
The video notably reveals an external curved screen on the right side, with a punch in the center. The photo module also seems imposing, which suggests that the smartphone will not abandon the photo part.
What technical specifications for the Honor Magic V?
According to a report by The Elec earlier this year, The Honor Magic V could offer a foldable 8.03-inch internal screen, and an external 6.45-inch screen. The latter would not be supplied by Samsung, since Honor would have turned instead to BOE Technology, a Chinese manufacturer specializing in display panels.
According to the Digital Chat Station leaker, the Honor Magic V could be the first foldable smartphone to be equipped with Qualcomm’s new high-end SoC, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. It would therefore be much more powerful than Samsung’s famous Galaxy Z Fold 3. , but also more efficient than the new OPPO Find N which was recently launched in China.
For the moment, it is not known whether or not Honor plans to launch its first foldable smartphone in Europe. As a reminder, the Chinese manufacturer recently freed itself from the American embargo that had been imposed on Huawei, now that the brand is independent. Honor is therefore now free to preinstall Google applications on its terminals, to use chips produced by American firms as well as 5G. It is also not known at what price the smartphone will be launched, but Honor might find it hard to compete with Samsung’s aggressive pricing if the device arrives in France.
