The Magic V2’s most striking feature is not on the inside; it is phone design.
The Honor Magic V2 is the thinnest and lightest foldable phone on the market. Honor has launched the Magic V2, its next foldable phone. And, rather than opting for the most economical alternative, V2 saw its business go out of its way to create probably the most elegant and trendy foldable phones around.
Here’s everything we know about this high-end smartphone that will be released outside of China.
Honor Magic V2: Design and Display:
The Magic V2’s most striking feature is not on the inside; it is phone design. It is the smallest and lightest foldable, measuring 9.9mm thick once folded and weighing 231g.
The Magic V2 is just 4.7mm wide when opened and 9.9mm thick when closed, weighing just 231g. In China, it is going to be available in black, gold, and purple.
However, there are three other black variants, including a ‘Silk Black’ version covered in vegan leather and an ‘Ultimate Black’ version with lavish details such as the gold Honor logo.
There are two views, obviously. Inside is a foldable 7.92 OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and LTPO technology for refresh rate scaling.
It has a resolution of 2344 x 2156 and even supports a stylus, even though this is simply included in the package with the Ultimate model.
On the outside, the 6.43 OLED display uses the same 120Hz LTPO technology and has a resolution of 2376 x 1060. It also accepts a stylus.
Pricing and Availability
Honor has officially confirmed that the Honor Magic V2 will be released in China on July 12, 2023 in Beijing. The Magic V2 may arrive in Europe in the fall, ideally sooner. The launch in the United States needs to be stepped up.
In China, the Magic V2 starts at around $1,250 and goes up to around $1,670 for the Ultimate version, which includes a stylus.
It’s only every now and then an accurate price predictor in any foreign release, which will nearly definitely be higher.
Honor Magic V2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, combined with Adreno 740 GPU, 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage. The Fold supports twin nano SIM cards and runs Android 13-based MagicOS 7.2 out of the box.
Camera and Battery Life
The Magic V2 has a triple rear camera unit with a 50-megapixel main sensor, a second 50-megapixel ultra-wide lens with optical image stabilization (OIS), and a 20-megapixel sensor featuring a telephoto lens that also supports OIS. The 16 megapixel sensor is used in the front camera.
The Honor Magic V2 has a 5,000 mAh battery and supports the same Honor SuperCharge 66W charging technology as its predecessor.
Connectivity options include 5G, 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11ax, Bluetooth 5.3 LE, GPS, NFC, and USB 3.1 Type-C. It incorporates a fingerprint sensor on the side for further security.
Now we must wait and see if this phone gets released outside of China.
