Honor is bringing a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 flagship to the MWC

Qualcomm’s Weibo account is set to reveal that the magic phone will be powered by its flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Which is the case for the V foldable, though it also doesn’t preclude the introduction of a new flagship.


Honor does have a series of non-folding Magic phones, like the Magic3 trio  were revealed in August and featured Snapdragon 888 and 888+ chipsets. However, a quick perusal of the rumor mill finds no signs of sequels to these phones, which turns back to the Magic V.

And if that it is indeed the star of Honor’s MWC show, it will have to go up against the P50 Pocket from former parent Huawei, which recently arrived in Europe already at a price of €1,600. Honor Magic V’s starting price of CNY 10,000 suggests that its euro pricing will be higher than that.
