The supposedly “thinnest and lightest” foldable smartphone was introduced by international smartphone company Honor on Friday at the annual IFA trade expo in this city. According to sources, the Magic V2 weighs only 231 grammes while offering comparable specs including a sizable battery, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform, and 120Hz screens.
No later than the first quarter of 2024, the Honor Magic V2 will be available for purchase in Europe and other significant areas. The cost of the gadget has not yet been disclosed. When folded, it is around 9.9mm thick. Despite having such a tiny form factor, it has a triple camera configuration, a 5,000mAh battery, and up to 16GB of RAM.
The Magic V2 enables pen input on both the outer and inner screens, unlike its predecessor, the Honor Magic Vs, according to Android Police. The business claims that it employed “a new generation of Silicon-Carbon-Dual-Battery” that can store more energy in a denser form factor and a titanium hinge that has been rebuilt in order to increase the hinge’s robustness and durability.
The folding gadget, according to Honor, can survive more than 400,000 folds.
The Company also displayed a prototype gadget called the “Magic V Purse.” The large outer display of the Purse wraps completely around the phone’s body, similar to the Mate X, with a thicker element smoothing out the surface when the phone is folded.
“The Magic V Purse is a concept phone that offers a distinctive form factor, resembling the original Huawei Mate X.” With the use of different chains and straps, the phone’s outside display may be converted into a clutch.
