Since its split with Huawei, Honor has released a bunch of handsets with Google Mobile Services (GMS) onboard. Now, the company has entered the foldable arena with the launch of Honor Magic V. So, let’s go over the specifications, features, availability, and expected price of Honor Magic V in Nepal.

Honor Magic V Overview:

Design and Display

The Magic V sports a 6.45-inches exterior screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1000 nits of peak brightness. One of the main attractions of this device is that it features a 21.3:9 aspect ratio which provides a regular smartphone experience even when it’s folded.

Honor Magic V Design-Display

When unfolded, the Magic V greets you with a 7.9-inch flexible OLED screen that has a 90Hz refresh rate and 2272 x 1984 pixels resolution. The screen has a 10.3:9 aspect ratio which divides into two areas of close to 21:9 ratio. Likewise, it has HDR10+ support, 10-bit color depth, a peak brightness of 800nits. And it’s also the first foldable to receive IMAX Enhanced certification.

Moreover, the phone’s hinge folds like a water droplet, similar to what we saw with the Oppo Find N. As a result, it folds completely flat—with no gap between the two halves of the screen. Its hinge is made of aerospace-grade material and measures 14.3mm when folded and 6.7mm when unfolded—making it the thinnest foldable currently available. Also, the hinge is rated to survive 10 years if folded and unfolded 50 times a day.

Performance

Powering the Magic V is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1—making it the first foldable to debut with this chipset. This is accompanied by 12GB RAM and 256 or 512GB of storage option. For software, it comes pre-installed with the new Magic UI 6.0 based on Android 12. Similarly, it is fueled by a 4750mAh battery that supports 66W wired charging, which takes the phone from 0 to 50% in just 15 minutes.

Camera

Honor Magic V Cameras

Over on to the cameras, Honor Magic V houses a 50MP primary lens, 50MP ultra-spectrum shooter, and a 50MP ultrawide sensor. The ultra-spectrum lens captures detailed images even in foggy conditions. For selfies, you get two 42MP cameras—one in the outer and one in the inner display.

Rest of the specs

Moving on, the connectivity option here includes WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port (with DisplayPort 1.2 support). However, the USB 3.2 Gen 1 cable needs to be purchased separately since Honor only provides USB 2.0 cable inside the box. The Magic V is available in Space Silver, Orange, and Gloss Black color options.
