The HONOR Magic V2 launched in China back in July last year. It took the company quite some time to bring it to more markets, but that just happened. A global variant of the HONOR Magic V2 launched today, and we’re here to take a closer look at its specifications.
Before we begin, do note that we’ll focus on the global variant here. The only differences are that it comes in fewer color variants, less RAM + storage options, and with a global software compared to the Chinese model.
The HONOR Magic V2 comes in glass & vegan leather variants
The HONOR Magic V2 comes in both glass and vegan leather variants. The former is available in a Purple color only, while the latter comes in black globally. There are some differences in terms of thickness and weight between the variants.
The glass model is both thicker and heavier. It measures 4.8mm when unfolded, and 10.1mm when folded. It weighs 237 grams. The Vegan Leather model measures 4.7mm when unfolded, 9.9mm when folded, and weighs 231 grams. Those differences are negligible, but still… they’re there.
The HONOR Magic V2 includes very powerful specifications, including two 120Hz LTPO displays
A 7.92-inch foldable OLED display is included. That is an LTPO display with a refresh rate up to 120Hz. The external display measures 6.43 inches, and has a resolution of 2376 x 1060. That is also an LTPO AMOLED panel and it offers a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The outer display can get a bit brighter, technically (2,500 nits), than the inner panel (1,600 nits). You’ll never reach such heights, though, and the numbers apply to HDR content.
A 5,000mAh battery sits inside the phone, and this is a silicon-carbon battery. It has a higher density than normal batteries, so a smaller footprint for the same capacity. The phone also supports 66W wired charging, and a charger comes included in the package. Wireless charging is not supported, but 5W reverse wired charging is.
Three cameras sit on the back, two of which are 50-megapixel units
A 50-megapixel main camera (f/1.9 aperture, OIS, PDAF, Laser Autofocus, 8×8 dToF) is backed by a 50-megapixel ultrawide camera (f/2.0 aperture) on the back. A 20-megapixel telephoto unit (f/2.4 aperture, OIS, 2.5x optical zoom) also sits on the back. Each of the two displays has a 16-megapixel selfie camera (f/2.2 aperture) included.
The phone does come with rather capable stereo speakers, but no audio jack. A side-facing fingerprint scanner is also included, and so is Bluetooth 5.3. Android 13 comes pre-installed here, along with MagicOS 7.2 skin.
The Porsche Design HONOR Magic V2 RSR was also launched. That device comes with double the storage (1TB), and a different-looking backside. It’s still glass on the back, though. That phone is gray-colored. Everything else is the same in terms of specs.
