A day after Honor’s pricing for its foldable leaked, we’re now getting a look at what the spec sheet will look like. The Honor Magic V is slated to make its debut on Monday, December 10, but that hasn’t stopped the information from flowing.

We already knew that Honor is planning on making the Magic V the first foldable phone to launch with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. But thanks to this new leak, more information has been made available about the rest of the phone’s capabilities.

The Honor Magic V will feature a main 7.9-inch folding OLED display, complete with a 2,272 x 1,984 resolution. Its refresh rate will come in at 90Hz, which is a bit disappointing, but the Cover Screen will provide a 120Hz refresh rate. Speaking of which, the Cover Screen will also use an OLED display and will measure in at 6.45-inches. Aspect ratios are an important part of the puzzle, and the Magic V’s main display will sport a 10.3:9 ratio, while the Cover Screen comes in with a 21.3:9 ratio.

Paired up with Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset, the Magic V will come in two configurations, with either 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, or 12GB / 512GB. Android 12 will be at the helm here, also marking the first foldable phone to launch with the latest version of Android, while using Honor’s MagicUI 6 interface.

The camera hardware is also shaping up to be impressive, with a 50MP triple rear camera setup. The primary 50MP lens is said to feature an f/1.9 aperture. Then, the ultra-wide camera will sport an f/2.2 aperture while the “spectrum enhanced” tertiary camera offers an f/2.0 aperture. On the front, Honor is packing a 42MP lens, but it’s not said whether there will be a camera found on the main folding screen or if Honor will only use one on the Cover Screen.

Finally, battery life should be pretty impressive with this 4,750mAh cell, complete with 6W fast wired charging speeds. The Magic V will come in three different colors, Orange, Black, and White, all of which offer a different type of finish.

Provided that these are the final specs of the Magic V, it’s shaping up to one of the most impressive foldable phones that we’ve seen to date. There are a few features that remain to be seen, such as how the software will handle the larger screen and non-optimized apps. But with the launch just a few days away, we don’t have much longer to wait.
