The Magic V2 flaunts an ultra-compact design, even beating out the iPhone 14 Pro Max in both dimensions and weight. The scale tips at an impressive 231 grams, although that might fluctuate based on your choice of back material. Oh, and get this: It’s the first foldable phone to flirt with a thickness under 10mm!
Switching gears to the displays, Honor has upped the ante. The internal screen now boasts a 120Hz refresh rate, while the brightness maxes out at a whopping 1600nits. The cover screen isn’t lagging either, doubling its brightness to 2500nits. Both screens are LTPO OLEDs and maintain the same screen size as their predecessors, albeit with minor changes to aspect ratios.
And hey, don’t forget about the cameras. The rear setup has been rejigged to include dual 50MP modules for both the main and ultrawide lenses. That’s a little shift from the previous 54MP+50MP setup. They’ve also tossed in a 20MP telephoto lens with 2.5x zoom, which is a notable upgrade. For your selfie needs, there are two 16MP cameras, each boasting an f/2.2 aperture. We’ve yet to see how these specs translate to real-world performance, but the changes look promising.
Finally, let’s chat about the battery and internals. The Magic V2 comes equipped with a silicon-carbon battery, which Honor claims has superior energy density. Given the device’s lighter weight with the same 5,000mAh capacity, it seems plausible. Adding to the excitement is the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which should make the phone more efficient than ever.
So, the Magic V2 brings some pretty eye-catching updates to the table. Whether it’s the device’s sleek dimensions, the enhanced displays, the reworked camera setup, or the more efficient internals, there’s a lot that beckons your attention. Can’t wait to see how it performs in daily use!
