Honor Magic V2 makes global debut, but important questions were left unanswered

Yordan, 01 September 2023

Honor held a keynote in Berlin as part of IFA 2023. The smartphone maker unveiled the V Purse concept, which is an outwards-folding smartphone that can be worn as a clutch handbag.

But George Zhao, Honor CEO, dedicated most of the event to the introduction of the Magic V2 foldable to the global audience. And while we got another overview of the phone's key features, the most interesting details were left out. We did not learn how much the Magic V2 will cost outside of China, nor did we receive an availability timeframe.

Honor Magic V2 announced as the slimmest foldable phone to date

The Honor Magic V2 arrived with the thinnest profile of any foldable and a body lighter than some bar flagship phones. We went to China for the unveiling, and we were impressed by how the phone felt in the hand, despite the fact that it is a foldable device with a huge internal screen and a 5,000 mAh battery.

The Magic V2 is currently selling only in China. Honor will probably follow this event with a proper Magic V2 launch where the availability details will be discussed, but we are yet to see when that happens.

Coming back to this article in 2024, it'll be officially announced for the Malaysia region in early January. Ironically, Honor Malaysia will have a separate event to announce the official pricing of this foldable phone. That still puzzles me why...

When do you plan on getting the V2? I just heard it won't be released globally until the first quarter of '24.
