Introducing Honor Magic V – the world’s first foldable phone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor

News unit According to the predetermined plan, the company Honor on Monday 10 January 2021 (20 December 1400) during an online event in China from the first foldable phone He unveiled the name Honor Magic V; This phone has a book-shaped form and should be placed in the line of phones like Samsung Galaxy Fold3 5G, Xiaomi Mix Fold, Oppo Find N and Huawei Mate X2 put more similarities to the last one, the product Huawei. Magic V is also the world’s first foldable phone with the new 4nm processor Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 cores. This phone has a smaller external screen and a large internal screen and has 3 50 megapixel cameras and two 42 megapixel selfie cameras.

Appearance and body design

Magic V like other folding models in this class is designed in the form of a book where when the device is closed on one side the main cameras and On the other side, there is an elongated external screen, and after opening it, we face a large internal screen.

This phone is in black colors Simple, silver with parallel lines and orange with artificial leather, each of which offers high charm in its own way.

New folding Honor is considered a relatively heavy phone among its competitors, but by providing a reasonable aspect ratio on the external screen, it has managed well to control the height of the device and has more reasonable dimensions, especially compared to Mate X2 and Mix Fold offers. The length of this model is 160.4 mm, and its width reaches 72.7 and 141.1 mm in both closed and open states, respectively. The closed thickness of this model is 14.3 mm, and each of its edges is 6.7 mm thick when open. For comparison, it is not bad to know that Galaxy Z Fold3 5G It is between 14.4 and 16 mm thick when closed, but its thickness reaches 6.4 mm when open.

As we said Magic V is not a very light phone and weighs 293 grams in the glass version and 288 grams in the leather version, although it is lighter than the Mate X2 and especially the Mix Fold, but there is still a difference It shows a lot with the Z Fold3 weighing 271 grams. The root of this difference should be found in the larger internal and external screens and of course the much larger battery of the device.

Honor In the introduction of this phone, he talked about the presence of “bent nano crystal glass” on the external screen of the device, which according to this company (without much reference to the basis of this comparison) has become 5 times more resistant and to prove it during the unveiling, twice the phone without Making trouble for it was thrown down!

The design of the rear cameras is relatively different and in this part, in a rectangular protrusion on the left side, three camera lenses are located under each other and another sensor with LED flash is also in They are outside this area.

Fingerprint sensor like other similar folding phones has no place in the dual screens of this phone and here this sensor is included on the power button next to the device.

Hinge design

one of the most important parts A folding phone is the design form and function of the hinge of the phone, which has a direct impact on the ergonomics and type of use of the device. The design of this phone, like Find N, is flat and integrated, and when the device is closed, there is not much distance between the two parts of the screen. In the construction of this hinge, the material metal based on the element zirconium (zirconium) is used, which is resistant to corrosion and, relying on the internal parts of the titanium alloy, it has high strength and light weight.

In this part, according to the manufacturer, high-strength carbon fiber and aviation-grade quality materials are used, which, according to Honor, ensure Magic V can be opened and closed up to 200,000 times without causing problems. This level of resistance means that if you open and close the device 50 times during the day, you can use this phone for more than 10 years.

External screen

Unlike most others. Phones in this class that use screens with unusual and elongated proportions on the outside of the device (see Z Fold3 with 25:9 aspect ratio or Mix Fold with 27:9 aspect ratio for external display), Magic V uses a more normal screen with a ratio of 21.3:9, which can be found in some normal phones on the market (for example, somewhat in the Sony Xperia 1 III). . This 6.45-inch OLED screen, which has a resolution of 1080 x 2560 pixels, is among the largest external panels in this class, and for example, the 6.2-inch external display of Z Fold3 and especially the only 5.49-inch panel Find N is much bigger.

Honor compared its peripheral edges with Z Fold3 in another part of the introduction of this panel; Where 2.33 and 3.1 mm margins are considered at the top and bottom of this screen, but these two margins are 3.73 mm in Samsung folding. On the left side of this screen, the Magic V is once again superior, reducing the Z Fold3’s 8.9 mm bezel to only 5.61 mm in this area. By reducing the peripheral edges of the external display, this screen managed to cover 90% of the surface of the phone in this area, which is less than 86% in Z Fold3.

Among the other specifications listed for this 10-bit screen should be 120Hz refresh rate, DCI-P3 support, 1,000nits maximum brightness and 1,920Hz PWM dimming rate noted, the latter produces less jump and provides a better user experience.

Internal screen

Among the other specifications mentioned for this panel, it should be up to a maximum brightness of 800 nits, support for displaying HDR10+ content. And the same PWM indicated 1,920 Hz.

Another interesting point in the design of this panel is that it becomes two 21:9 screens after opening, compared to Z Fold3, which in this case shows two 23:9 panels side by side. It makes a wider workspace available for each half of the screen.

According to Honor, two different coatings are used on this screen called AR and AF, the first one means AR is closer to the screen and is used for better light transmission. is taken and AF means the higher layer is resistant to dust, water, finger and fat effects and pollution.

Honor once again compared the amount of light reflection from the surface of this display with its Samsung competitor and in this regard Less reflection of light speaks.

Honor Magic V Also according to the company The manufacturer of the world’s first folding phone with IMAX Enhanced license.

main and selfie cameras

in the external part of the phone, behind the device, the Magic Way camera set with LED flash and time-of-flight sensor are placed; The main camera of the device is a 50-megapixel wide-angle with a focal length of 23 mm and an aperture of f/1.9, which achieves a maximum resolution of 4K in video recording and is equipped with a digital stabilizer or EIS in the absence of an optical stabilizer. The second camera of this part is also 50 megapixels, but its ultrawide f/2.2 lens provides you with a wide field of view, and finally, the third 50 megapixel unit is also known as the Spectrum Enhanced Camera by Fozmand and the information is still unknown. Not much is known about its exact function. This camera has a focal length of 20 mm and an aperture of f/2.0. Outside of this set and above the single LED flash, there is a time-of-flight sensor of the phone or its laser focus system, which is also referred to as dTOF eight by eight.

In the Magic V structure of two selfie cameras above each of the internal screens and The external one is used, with the top sample of the external display in the center and the selfie camera of the internal display, leaning to the right. Both of these cameras are 42 megapixels with f/2.4 and without autofocus, which use 4K video recording and digital stabilizer.

Processor – Memory

As mentioned in the title, Honor Magic V the world’s first foldable phone with 4 nm processor Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 which is a 3.0 GHz core Cortex-X2, three 2.5 GHz core Corex-A710 and four 1.8 GHz cores

Battery and charger

Battery capacity of folding phones of this class despite the large space that can be allocated to the battery Usually, to avoid the high weight of the device, it is not too much, and except for the Mix Fold, whose 5,000 mAh battery has a very high weight of 317 grams (332 grams in the ceramic version), in other similar folding devices, the battery capacity is from 4,400 to 4,500 mAh. The ampere hour has not gone beyond. In Honor Magic V, however, we see the presence of a relatively powerful battery with a capacity of 4,750 mAh, which seems to be a balanced number considering the weight of the device.

This battery capacity as usual for fast charging and proportional distribution of weight, the sum of two independent units in each of the left parts and the right of the device, which apparently have the same capacity.

Fast charging in this set is done with a 66W (11V and 6A) wired charger, which 15 minutes of connecting to the device, according to the manufacturer, is enough to fill 50% of the battery capacity. .

5G connection, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, stereo speaker, infrared port, NFC and GPS/GLONASS/BeiDou/Galileo satellite routers are some of the device’s communication options.

Honor Magic V with Operating system Android 12 and interface The Magic UI 6.0 user will be released to the Chinese market from January 18 (28 December 1400) at a price of 9,999 yuan (at the current exchange rate of nearly 1,568 US dollars) for the 256 GB version and 10,999 yuan (1,725 ​​dollars) for the 512 GB version. It has a price. There is still no detailed information about the possibility of offering this phone to markets outside of China.
