Honor Magic V2 Lite, Magic V2 Slim could arrive at IFA Berlin next month

Yordan, 16 August 2023

Honor will host an event in Berlin during IFA on September 1, and we know the Magic V2 will make a global debut. Leaksters revealed more foldables might appear at the event – one of them should be a Magic V2 Lite (or Youth Edition in Chinese) with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and a lower price tag of CNY5,000 – that's equal to about $700.

According to @RODENT950 on X, there is also a Magic V Slim on its way, which will be an even thinner foldable with a vertical hinge. It was already certified at MIIT in China under the codename “Victoria”.

Honor is also working on a clamshell-style foldable, but the company is not ready with the final product, as it said the device must “stand out”, meaning a Magic V Flip is not on the horizon right now. The leakster Teme also mentioned Magic 6, Magic 6 Pro, Magic 6 Ultimate, and Magic OS 8.0 without saying whether they knew anything about the new flagships and UI.

Information on most of the phones mentioned above might be scarce, but at least we had hands-on experience with the flagship Magic V2. We found out to be a relatively thin device and light as well – pretty compact for such a non-compact form factor.

It comes with plenty of memory, the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, meaning it could disrupt the foldable market as we know it, provided Honor manages to match Samsung in marketing spending on a global scale.

$700 horizontal foldable phone? That is outright optimistic. Even Tecno can't do it.
