Honor has officially confirmed it is working on a foldable phone, the Honor Magic V. A new teaser image shared by the company offers a glimpse of the handset and the hinge holding the dual screens together. However, it isn’t clear whether the device has a Galaxy Fold-like design or a Galaxy Z Flip-like look. But if we were to guess, we suspect it may have a clamshell design considering the name Magic V.  The upcoming foldable is expected to have flat edges on the front, probably for good in-hand grip. Unfortunately, no other details about the Honor Magic V are revealed at the moment but there are reports suggesting the phone may debut in China in January 2022.
