Hoor has just unveiled what it says is the slimmest foldable phone to date. With a thickness of 9.9mm, the new Magic V2 is more comparable to the regular smartphone than other foldables. So, let’s get into the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Honor Magic V2 in Nepal.
Honor Magic V2 Overview:
Design and Display
One of the major criticism that foldable phones faced was that they were quite bulky when compared to mainstream smartphones. Up until now, even the thinnest foldable measured 11.2mm in thickness and weighed around 260 grams. Compare this to the new Honor Magic V2 which measures 9.9mm when folded and has a total weight of 231 grams, the difference is substantial.
The phone uses the same gearless unibody hinge mechanism that Honor debuted with the Magic Vs but the company has taken it up a notch by incorporating Titanium. Another area where they have reduced weight is the battery. Honor Magic V2 uses a Silicon-Carbon battery with a 5,000mAh capacity. Because of the dual-cell setup, it still charges at 66W at its peak.
Honor offers the Magic V2 in a total of four color options. This includes the Silk Purple, Gold, Silk Black, and Ultimate Black. The Ultimate Black version features a PU leather back while the rest sport a glass back design.
The cover screen sports a 7.92” diagonal length with a 2376 x 1060 pixels resolution. Opening it, you are greeted with a larger 6.43-inch screen with a 2344 x 2156 pixel resolution. Both are 10-bit OLED panels with 120Hz LTPO refresh rate and DCI-P3 color gamut. Honor has included 3940Hz PWM Dimming on both screens.

Performance and Memory
Under the hood, Magic V2 comes with the “latest version” of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Honor is definitely referring to the advanced version of the flagship chip with the Cortex-X3 “Prime” cores overclocked to 3.36GHz. We have seen a similar setup on the Galaxy S23 series and Red Magic 8S Pro as Snapdragon for Galaxy and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2. However, without additional information, it’s unsure if these three are all the same.
That aside, Honor Magic V2 comes with 16GB RAM which you can pair with 256GB and 512GB storage. The Magic V2 Ultimate version with vegan leather is available in a single 16GB+1TB memory variation.
At the back of the Honor Magic V2, you can find a rectangular camera island that houses a triple camera setup. Leading the line is the 50MP primary camera with Optical Image stabilization. This is paired with another 50MP sensor with an ultrawide lens. Finally, there is a 20MP telephoto lens with 2.5x optical zoom and OIS. The phone also has an 8×8 Direct Time-of-Flight (dTOF) sensor for real-time depth sensing and a duo of flicker and color temperature sensors to reduce flickers.
