Delhi : The company earlier today revealed the foldable in China, after the introduction of the HONOR V Purse at IFA 2023. The V Purse is 10.1% smaller than the HONOR Magic V2 thanks to a special outward folding screen with a slimmer design that is less than 9 mm when folded.

It boasts a 6.45-inch unfolded size and a 7.71-inch foldable OLED display with 2160Hz high-frequency PWM dimming technology. On this foldable, HONOR is using the outdated Snapdragon 778G 5G SoC. Additionally, it boasts a dual back camera system with a 50MP primary camera and a 12MP ultra-wide lens, as well as an 8MP front camera inside the notch.
