The HONOR Magic V2 originally launched way back in July last year. The phone was announced in China back then. Following that, HONOR showed it off at IFA in Berlin back in September. HONOR did promise that a global variant of the Magic V2 is coming, and that just happened.
The global variant of the HONOR Magic V2 is official, it launched in Europe
It took the company quite some time to deliver it, but it just got announced in Leipzig, Germany. In addition to a regular HONOR Magic V2, which comes in two variants, the Porsche Design model also arrived. That phone was originally announced earlier this month in China, alongside the Magic6 series.
The Porsche Design model has the same specs as the regular model but comes with a different backplate and a different camera island. It also comes with more RAM than a standard model. The HONOR Magic V2 offers 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, while the Porsche Design variant ups that to 1TB of storage.
The phone comes in Black and Purple variants, in addition to a Porsche Design model
That being said, the HONOR Magic V2 comes in Black and Purple models. The Black variant has a Vegan Leather backplate, while the Purple model has a glass backplate. The Porsche Design model has a gray-colored backplate and a glass back.
The HONOR Magic V2 is only 9.9mm thick when folded, that goes for the Vegan Leather model. The glass model is 0.2mm thicker at 10.1mm. The phone weighs either 231 or 237 grams, depending on the variant, the Vegan Leather variant is lighter. The Porsche Design iteration is in the middle with 234 grams.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor fuels this smartphone, while Android 13 comes pre-installed with MagicOS 7.2 on top of it. A 5,000mAh battery sits inside the phone, and that’s a feat on its own. That’s a silicon-carbon battery, which is why HONOR managed to fit it inside.
It has three cameras on the back, and two 120Hz LTPO displays
A 50-megapixel main camera is backed by a 50-megapixel ultrawide unit, and a 20-megapixel telephoto camera (2.5x optical zoom). Each display has a 16-megapixel selfie camera on it (hole punch cutouts).
There is a 7.92-inch 2156 x 2344 Foldable LTPO OLED display (up to 120Hz refresh rate) included on the front. It goes up to 1,600 nits of peak brightness. The cover panel measures 6.43 inches, and that’s an LTPO OLED display as well (up to 120Hz refresh rate). That display has a max brightness of 2,500 nits.
Stereo speakers are also a part of the package, and the same goes for the side-facing fingerprint scanner. 66W wired charging is supported, and the charger is included in the package. The phone also supports 5W reverse wired charging.
The HONOR Magic V2 is quite pricey
Many of you are probably wondering about the price. Well, first of all, HONOR announced the availability of this phone in Europe. It’s priced at €1,999 / £1,699.99 (the UK). It goes on sale today. We still don’t have the price tag for the Porsche Design variant, but it’ll be significantly more expensive.
HONOR did not mention availability for other markets. The global variant of the phone is here, with global software, but it is only launching in Europe, at least for now.
