Aside from announcing its strategic vision for the future of smartphones at IFA 2023 recently, HONOR also unveiled the HONOR V Purse.
The HONOR V Purse is a new concept that reimagines a foldable smartphone as a wearable, fashion-forward purse, offering endless possibilities for style and self-expression.
The new smartphone creates a new “Phone-to-purse” concept that heralds the beginning of electronic devices being seen as an entirely new category of fashionable consumer goods that offer unlimited opportunities for self-expression.
The HONOR V Purse seamlessly transforms the foldable smartphone into the ultimate phy-gital fashion statement, thanks to a series of customizable always-on displays (AODs) that mimic a handbag design, including design elements such as chains, feathers and tassels that react and sway with the smartphone as it moves.
The concept phone is also compatible with a choice of interchangeable straps and chains, which clip onto the hinge to allow the smartphone to be worn effortlessly over one’s shoulder like an ordinary purse or handbag, enabling it to become the new “it” bag of the future.
It was also engineered with sustainability in mind, by featuring sustainably sourced materials such as vegan leather for its straps.
HONOR had also teamed up with top cultural tastemakers from across its HONOR Talents Global Design Awards platform, including creative director from BURBERRY menswear Bram Van Diepen, contemporary artist Yunuene Esparza, professor of the China Academy of Art Yuan Youmin and crossover artist Xiao Hui Wang, to design a series of custom AODs for the device.
Also in plans is opening up the API interface that allows designers to call sensors like gyroscope, touch or ambient light sensor.
Aside from unveiling the Honor V Purse, HONOR also showcased its new flagship foldable smartphone, the HONOR Magic V2, for the first time ever at a global event.
The HONOR Magic V2 is the lightest and thinnest inward foldable smartphone that HONOR has introduced to date, weighing only 231g and measuring just 9.9mm thick when folded.
It features a new generation of Silicon-Carbon-Dual-Battery with an average thickness of just 2.72mm, which achieves a high capacity of up to 5,000mAh in the space of a thin and light foldable flagship body.
In addition to the thin and lightweight, the HONOR Magic V2 features a first-of-its-
kind Super-light Titanium Hinge and a new HONOR’s proprietary steel, providing
added robustness and durability to the hinge mechanism.
It comes with a triple rear camera setup that includes 50MP Main Camera (f/1.9), a 50MP Ultra-Wide Camera (f/2.0), and a 20MP Telephoto Camera (f/2.4). The front-facing dual camera setup features two 16MP Cameras (f/2.2).
