Honor’s Magic V2, the super-thin foldable smartphone that launched in July 2023 in China, is now available in Europe.
While the wait has been a long one, the Magic V2 still has the honor (no pun intended) of being the world’s thinnest inward-folding smartphone, at just 4.7 millimeters of thickness when unfolded and 9.9 millimeters of thickness when folded. For comparison, Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 5 measures 6.1 millimeters when unfolded, and 13.4 millimeters when folded.
Honor was able to achieve this feat by using a new generation silicon-carbon-dual-battery, which holds a capacity of 5,000mAh in a body that’s just 2.72 millimeters thick, on average.
Honor Magic V2 will initially be available in Europe in two colors: Purple and Black.
The rest of the specs are top notch as well. On the back, there’s a triple camera system with a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 50-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, and a 20-megapixel telephoto camera. There’s also a dual, 16-megapixel camera setup on the front.
The display is a 7.92-inch OLED with a 120Hz refresh rate, 1600 nits of brightness, and a 2,156×2,344 pixel resolution. It’s coupled with a 6.43-inch, OLED cover display with 2500 nits of brightness and a 2,060×2,376 pixel resolution.
Honor was able to make the Magic V2 very slim by using a new generation, super-thin battery.
The Magic V2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, coupled with 16GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of storage.
Other notable specs include a stereo speaker system, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and 66W wired charging.
The price matches the specs, unfortunately. The Honor Magic V2 will be available starting today through Honor’s website, in Purple and Black colors, for €1,999.
There will also be a more luxurious, Porsche Design Honor Magic V2 RSR variant. We don’t have the pricing for that one yet, but will update this article when we do.
