#TECH: Redefining fashion and sustainability in smartphones

AT the IFA 2023 conference in Berlin, Honor took centre stage with a visionary announcement that has set the tech and fashion world abuzz.

In a keynote titled "Unfold Tomorrow", Honor chief executive officer George Zhao unveiled the company's bold vision for the future of smartphones, showcasing the latest in foldable technology, including the lightest and slimmest inward foldable smartphone — the Honor Magic V2.

However, the real showstopper was the introduction of the "Honor V Purse", a revolutionary concept that bridges the gap between technology and fashion, offering endless possibilities for style and self-expression.

In his keynote address, Zhao said: "Honor's foldable smartphones have come a long way, with each iteration showcasing remarkable advancements in design, functionality and durability.

"Not only that, but with our phone-to-purse concept brought to life through the Honor V Purse, we are exploring sustainable solutions that leverage emerging foldable technology to empower creativity and shape tomorrow's lifestyle."


Honor's commitment to creating innovative, sustainable solutions is evident in the Honor V Purse.

This groundbreaking concept transforms the foldable smartphone into the ultimate fashion statement, blurring the lines between tech and style.

The Honor V Purse features customisable always-on displays (AODs) that mimic handbag designs, including elements such as chains, feathers, and tassels that react and sway with the smartphone's movement.

The device also comes with interchangeable straps and chains, allowing it to be effortlessly worn over one's shoulder like an ordinary purse or handbag, making it the must-have accessory of the future.

Designed with sustainability in mind, the Honor V Purse incorporates eco-friendly materials, such as vegan leather for its straps.

The customisable AODs can be paired with any outfit, offering environmentally conscious consumers a way to reduce their reliance on fast fashion while embracing the digital transformation of the fashion industry.

Honor has partnered with top cultural tastemakers from its Honor Talents Global Design Awards platform to create custom AODs for the Honor V Purse, providing limitless fashion possibilities.


In addition to the Honor V Purse, IFA 2023 marked the global unveiling of the Honor Magic V2, the brand's flagship foldable smartphone.

This device sets new industry benchmarks with significant improvements in form factor, battery life, display technology and user experience.

The Honor Magic V2 is the lightest and thinnest inward foldable smartphone that Honor has ever introduced, weighing just 231gm and measuring a mere 9.9mm thick when folded.

Its Silicon-Carbon-Dual-Battery system, with an average thickness of only 2.72mm, offers a remarkable capacity of up to 5,000 mAh in a slim and lightweight form.

Durability is a key feature of the Honor Magic V2, thanks to its super-light Titanium Hinge and a proprietary steel hinge mechanism.

The device has earned SGS durability certification, demonstrating its ability to withstand over 400,000 folds, ensuring a lifespan of up to 10 years for those who fold it 100 times a day.

Photography enthusiasts will appreciate the triple rear camera setup, which includes a 50MP main camera, a 50MP ultra-wide camera and a 20MP telephoto camera.

On the front, a dual 16MP camera setup is perfect for selfies and video calls.

Additionally, the Honor Magic V2 introduces new interactive experiences, such as hovering photography and the ability to operate dual-space apps in parallel, enhancing productivity and convenience for users.
