Back in the fall of last year, Honor announced its intention to release a foldable smartphone, which will be part of Honor’s line of experimental devices. Towards the end of 2021, it became known that the Honor Magic V would be the foldable smartphone; and at the very beginning of the coming year, the release date was also announced – January 10.
The company will not spend the remaining days before the announcement in complete silence; it will actively promote the new product. And what Honor will not do, for it will be done by insiders, who today leaked a photo of Honor Magic V in the bright orange color “Flaming brown”, which came off the pages of a fashion magazine.
