Honor is at the IFA congress in Berlin to make the Magic V2 global and to show off the V Purse concept – an advanced outward foldable tailored towards the fashion-conscious.
We were able to spend some time gawking at the Honor V Purse and captured a gallery of shots for your viewing pleasure.
Now, we weren’t allowed to touch the concept phone, but it looks better in the hands of Honor’s models anyway.
The Honor V Purse as a purse
From the outside, the Honor V Purse concept looks quite a bit like the Huawei Mate Xs 2. It uses the same wraparound display that can fold flat on itself, resulting in a thinner profile, no gap, and no need for a cover display.
But while the Mate Xs 2 is around 11.1mm, the Honor V Purse is just 9mm – a substantial improvement.
Honor calls the V Purse design a “phy-digital fashion statement” – combining physical designs (the straps) with interactive always-on display styles. The goal is that with interchangeable straps and a variety of AOD designs (which are visible on both sides since this is an outward foldable), you can match the Honor V Purse to any outfit you wear, thus reducing your reliance on fast fashion.
The hardware of the Honor V Purse
The Honor V Purse is a concept device and may very well never make it to a shelf near you. Or perhaps not in this Pret-a-Porter guise. We could still see a direct Huawei Mate Xs 2 rival from Honor so fingers crossed.
