Update 23 December, 5PM: We were just told by Honor Malaysia that the 3 January event is not a launch for the Magic V2. Rather, it’s a media briefing for the new foldable phone. We’ll have to wait a bit later for the Malaysian pricing and availability of the Magic V2.

The original article follows.

First unveiled in China back in July this year – with an international debut slightly later at IFA 2023 – the Honor Magic V2 foldable phone is set to be launched in Malaysia next week on 3 January 2024. Honor Malaysia itself has also started teasing the local availability of its latest foldable smartphone.

The most highlighted feature of the Magic V2 is its thin and lightweight nature. Tipping the scales at only 231g with a 9.9mm chassis when folded, it is certainly a thin and light foldable phone. Despite its slim profile, the phone still comes with a rather generous 5,000mAh battery that supports 66W fast charging.

Aside from that, the Magic V2 also features a triple camera system made up of a 50MP primary sensor, a 50MP ultra-wide lens, and a 20MP telephoto shooter. It also has a total of two 16MP selfie cameras; one for the inner screen, and another for the cover display.

Other specifications of the Magic V2 include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset paired with 16GB of RAM, three storage options (256GB, 512GB, 1TB), a 7.92-inch 2344 x 2156 OLED primary display with a 120Hz refresh rate, as well as a 6.43-inch 2376 x 1060 OLED cover screen – also clocked at 120Hz.

To recap, the Honor Magic V2 will be launched in Malaysia next week on 3 January 2024. We’ll find out then the local pricing and availability of the foldable phone.
