This is also the first foldable smartphone with IMAX Enhanced certification. This display has an aspect ratio of 10.3:9 which divides close to a 21:9 aspect ratio when you use the split-screen for multitasking. HONOR said that it could be closed flat for added protection.

The cover screen uses a 6.45-inch OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, 2560 x 1080 resolution, and a 21:9 aspect ratio. This size and ratio are closer to a regular smartphone experience. This is way better than the awkwardly tall screen of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G.

Assisting the powerful chip of this phone is its 12GB RAM. It also has a 256GB or 512GB storage option and a large 4,750mAh battery with USB-C 66W fast charging. The company claimed that this can play intensive games for 4 hours straight which is better than the Z Fold3.

For cameras, it is impressive as well. It uses 3 50MP cameras at the back. The first 50MP cam has a 23mm equivalent lens, the ultra-wide 50MP cam has a 13mm equivalent lens, and the last 50MP lens is a color spectrum shooter.

For selfies, it comes with 2x 42MP cameras on the punch-hole of the main screen and cover screen.

HONOR Magic V also has a side-mounted fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, WiFI 6, 5G, 4G LTE, and Android 12-based Magic UI 6.0 skin. This also has the OS Turbo X, GPU Turbo X, and Link Turbo X technologies to further improve the overall smartphone experience.

China price with direct to PHP conversion (no taxes and duties yet):

HONOR Magic V 256GB - CNY 9,999
HONOR Magic V 512GB -  CNY 10,999

It will be available in China starting January 18. There is no info if this handset will make it to the international market yet.
