They are in the catalog of Samsung and Motorola, in Huawei and Xiaomi's. Now, also, in Honor. Folding mobile phones are not yet the preferred choice by consumers, even those who spend most on telephones, but the format is increasingly common in the offers of the great telephony manufacturers.
The case of honor is significant because it is one of the first large launches. The Chinese company was born as a second mark of the Giant Huawei to try to expand the public of the brand, but since mid-last year it operates independently.
It is a split that seeks to alleviate the pressure suffered by Huawei by the US strategic blockade. (Mobile phones can not use Google services and applications), but it has allowed an honor to leave the low prices in which it operated and Try luck in segments of the most lucrative markets.
The Magic V honor tries to achieve that goal with some unique design details. Its hinge mechanism, which the company ensures that it can support more than 200,000 openings without damage to the screen, gets that when the phone is not closed, it does not have separation between the two halves, as it happens in another folding models of the market.
The phone is built on the latest generation of Qualcomm processors, the SNAPDRAGON 8 GEN 1, is compatible with 5G networks and has a 4,750 mAh battery with fast charge to 66W, capable of recharging 50% of the capacity in just 15 minutes .
Next to the screen, the other protagonist of this phone is the camera. It has a set of Quadruple Cameras (three in the back, one front) in which it dominates a 50 MP camera with opening F / 1.9 and an ultra wide-angle lens something less luminous but capable of taking macro photography (that is, Focusing on very close objects). The front camera, which is discovered when deploying the smartphone, has 42 MP resolution.
With the new Qualcomm processor, the phone can apply several analysis and automatic improvement tools, including a 'night mode' to capture scenes when there is no ambient light without using the flash.
Honor Magic V will go on sale in China next January 18 and will arrive in Europe in the coming months. Its price, to change, starts at 1,300 euros approximately. High for a brand accustomed to move in more affordable market segments but on the line of other folding telephones in the market.Updated Date: 11 January 2022, 07:33
