Phones Canada Presents: Introducing the Honor Magic V2 – The Thinnest Book-Style Foldable Phone with Competitive Pricing
Remember the former Huawei sub-unit, Honor? Since its separation from Huawei in 2020, Honor has successfully established itself as an independent company. Last week, during IFA, Honor unveiled its latest innovation, the Honor Magic V2, a sleek book-style foldable phone.
The Honor Magic V2 stands out as the thinnest device in its category and is set to be available globally in the first quarter of 2024. What’s even more impressive is its competitive pricing. According to Honor CEO George Zhao, the pricing for the previous model, the Magic Vs, serves as a good reference for the global pricing of the Magic V2.
Based on this information, we can expect the Magic V2 to have a price tag of around €1,599 ($1,726), which is €300 ($324) less than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Google Pixel Fold at launch. Even with a slight price increase, Honor’s offering will still be more affordable than the latest book-style foldables from Samsung and Google.
It’s important to note that the Honor Magic V2 may not have some features found in the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Pixel Fold, such as ultra-thin glass, IPX8 water resistance, and wireless charging. However, the impressive specifications and competitive price make the Honor Magic V2 an appealing choice.
Let’s take a closer look at the specifications of the Honor Magic V2. The device features a 6.43-inch external display with a resolution of 1060 x 2376 and a 7.92-inch internal screen with a resolution of 2156 x 2344. Both screens are OLED panels with a 120Hz refresh rate, offering a smooth and immersive viewing experience. The external screen boasts a peak brightness of 2500 nits, while the internal screen reaches up to 1600 nits.
Under the hood, the Magic V2 is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 application processor, ensuring speedy performance and efficient multitasking. It comes with an impressive 16GB of RAM and the option of either 256GB or 512GB of storage. For those seeking the ultimate storage capacity, the Magic V2 Ultimate edition offers a whopping 1TB of storage. With such specifications, this device truly lives up to its name.
Photography enthusiasts will also appreciate the camera capabilities of the Honor Magic V2. It boasts a high-quality 50MP primary camera, a 50MP ultra-wide camera, and a 20MP telephoto camera with 40x digital zoom support. Selfie lovers will enjoy the 16MP front-facing camera, capturing stunning self-portraits and video calls.
To keep you going throughout the day, the Magic V2 is equipped with a 5000mAh battery and supports 66W SuperCharge, ensuring fast and convenient charging. The device is available in Black (PU), Black, Gold, and Purple color options. The Magic V2 Ultimate edition is exclusively offered in Black (PU).
Running on MagicOS 7.2, based on Android 13, all Magic V2 models, including the Ultimate edition, come pre-installed with the latest software for enhanced user experience and functionality.
In summary, the Honor Magic V2 is an impressive and affordable book-style foldable phone that offers the thinnest design in its category.
