This next-generation flagship foldable smartphone will become the thinnest and lightest book-style foldable smartphone on the planet upon release. The release is a bold statement by HONOR which will surely redefine industry benchmarks with significant improvements across form factor, battery, display and user experience.


"We are excited to introduce the HONOR Magic V2 to users in the KSA, we believe it will achieve significant success by exceeding consumers expectations across the region, especially with existing users of foldable devices.” Said Mr. Jerry, Country Manager of HONOR Device KSA. “With a folded design externally resembling the look and feel of traditional smartphones, the HONOR Magic V2 signifies our commitment in making foldables more practical and accessible.

In pursuit of best-in-class portability, HONOR has meticulously refined the product structure, manufacturing process, and material selection for its latest flagship smartphone. Weighing only 231g[1] and measuring 9.9mm[2] in thickness when folded, the HONOR Magic V2 pushes the boundaries of innovation when it comes to foldables. 


The HONOR Magic V2 features a first-of-its-kind Super-light & extra hard Titanium Hinge, which provides the perfect balance between weight and strength. HONOR’s SGS certified proprietary steel has been expertly created for use in the hinge's main body of the HONOR Magic V2, providing added robustness and durability to the hinge mechanism. Thanks to these breakthrough innovations, the HONOR Magic V2 earned the coveted durability certification from SGS ensuring the hinge to withstand up to 400,000 folds, which gives it a minimum lifespan of ten years when folding the device 100 times a day!




Breakthrough Silicon-carbon Battery Technology for Extended Performance

The HONOR Magic V2 debuts with the thinnest dual Silicon-carbon Batteries with an average thickness of only 2.72mm. The innovative battery features HONOR's revolutionary low-voltage charge energy-gathering technology for greater power output at the same voltage compared to graphite-based battery systems. With battery capacity of 5000mAh[3] and supporting 66W HONOR SuperCharge, the HONOR Magic V2 ensures users stay connected without constant recharging. 


HONOR’s Signature Human-Centric Technology for Display

The HONOR Magic V2 features a breathtaking foldable OLED LTPO display, offering an immersive user experience with support for 1.07 billion colors and exceptional color accuracy. HONOR’s industry-leading 3840Hz PWM Dimming technology[4] minimizes eye strain, ensuring comfortable viewing even during extended use. 

Incorporating human-centric innovation, the HONOR Magic V2 features Dynamic Dimming, which mimics natural light rhythm, stimulating ciliary muscle movement and reducing eye fatigue. The display's brightness level adapts automatically to external lighting conditions and screen time duration, ensuring optimal comfort for the human eye.

Additionally, the Circadian Night Display adjusts the screen to warmer colors and reduces colors known to be significant circadian stimuli. This feature is tested to increase melatonin levels, promoting longer and better sleep quality for users.
