Watch the Honor Magic V announcement here

Peter, 10 January 2022

The day has come for Honor to unveil its first foldable phone, the Honor Magic V. The event will be livestreamed starting at 11:30 UTC from a stage in China. This is billed as the global launch for the V and Honor is indeed welcome to sell its phones globally.

However, we don’t know where the Magic V will be sold – in China certainly, maybe in Europe too? This information is typically reserved for the final slides of the presentation. One of those slides was caught in a spy photo (presumably during a rehearsal), which suggests that the V will be quite pricey.

Honor did tease a few official details about the device, like saying that this will be the first foldable with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and posting a teaser video that showed a gapless design, plus a photo of the vegan leather back. Then there are the rumored specs, which are about to be confirmed or refuted.

We’ll have the full details on the Honor Magic V soon, so stay tuned. In the meantime you can watch the presentation along with us and check out the landing page for the event on

It uses a nano-microcrystalline external screen which is supposedly far superior to GG. GG is just a brand of Corning. There are other alternatives.

If it's good enough, not overpriced, you will get it even if it's china only. Some brands are not capable of folding, so there is only one road to take.

This will be the best foldable and one of the most expensive.
