The Honor Magic V2’s global launch is later than we expected


Back in July, Honor announced their latest foldable phone in the form of the Magic V2. The handset was initially announced for the China market, but at IFA 2023, the company revealed their plans to bring it to global markets but did not say when.

Now according to a new report from Android Authority, they have received confirmation from the company that the Magic V2 will be seeing a global launch in Q1 2024. Yes, you read that right, it will only be in 2024 that the rest of us will be able to get our hands on the device.

It is rather odd timing because we imagine that Honor would want to compete against other foldables that launched in 2023, namely the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5. Launching it in 2024 means they’ll be releasing a phone with 2023 hardware and pitting it against other foldables that are coming in 2024.

There is some good news though and why you might consider the Magic V2 even in 2024. Further details shared by Honor CEO George Zhao has hinted that the phone could be priced lower than its competitors. Apparently the Honor Magic Vs is a “good reference” for the pricing of the Magic V2, which means that if you want a more affordable foldable, maybe holding out for the Magic V2 in 2024 might not be a bad idea.
