The Honor Magic V2 is launching outside China and will arrive in Europe, with the news dropping at IFA 2023. The announcement was made alongside the reveal of Honor's latest concept device, a fashion-focused twist on the Huawei Mate Xs, the Honor Magic V Purse.

It's no secret that we didn't love the Honor Magic Vs when we tested it. Despite plenty of promise and value when it came to the phone's specs, the Vs's hardware fell short, its camera couldn't best the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, and the software didn't hit the mark either. The Honor Magic V2 promises to up the experience in every respect, but it's this phone's design that's taken our breath away.
