Honor Magic V2 unboxing

Ivan, 26 January 2024

It took its sweet sweet time, but Honor's almost impossibly slim Magic V2 is finally available outside of China. Europeans can, as of today, order on the phone.

You get a nice retail box with the Magic V2. All the accessories are shipped in independent little boxes inside the phone's bigger box.

Packaged with the Honor Magic V2 is a 66W charger, a USB cable, a case for the phone's rear panel, and a SIM eject tool. The case has a handy, sturdy kickstand too.

The most impressive bit about the Honor Magic V2 remains its weight and size, though. This is a 231g phone - about the same as a Galaxy S24 Ultra - despite the massive 7.92-inch inner screen. The foldable body remains as impressive now as it was 6 months ago when we first saw it.

Inside is a 120Hz-capable LTPO AMOLED panel unit with a 2156x2344px resolution. On the outside, sits a 6.43-inch 1060x2376px LTPO 120Hz OLED.

Initially launched in July, the Honor Magic V2 is rocking a 2023-grade Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, but since the other foldables are yet to get their 2024 versions it's not actually at a disadvantage.

The 512 GB of storage and 16GB of RAM are top of the class, while the 5,000mAh battery is significantly bigger than what the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 offers. There's, a triple camera with 50MP wide angle, 20MP 62mm telephoto, and 50MP 13mm AF ultrawide units.

We'll now be putting the Magic V2 through its paces over the following days and report back with our findings shortly!

It'll have to be tested but I doubt it tbh. Otherwise they would've gotten it certified

Too late for Global release! One Plus Open is Already Better in Anyway!

I never said it had an IPX4 rating, I said it was probably at the level of that. Or otherwise X3.
