Honor's Stylish Statement: V Purse Delivers a Sleek 8.6mm Outward Folding Smartphone
Honor has launched a new foldable in China today. It's the Honor V wallet that was unveiled at IFA in Berlin earlier this month. As the name suggests, it's a fashion-focused offering that can literally be worn like a purse. Yes, you read that right! Honor V presents the Purse as an electronic gadget that doubles as a fashion accessory that offers 'unlimited opportunities for self-expression'. However, the caveat is that it is not a functional purse meaning you cannot store any items inside it.
Honor V Purse Specifications
The Honor V Wallet is an outward folding phone instead of a regular foldable phone that folds inwards. The device features a wraparound display on its rear panel. It is only 8.6mm thick when folded like a traditional flat smartphone. The company says the hinge is durable and can last 400,000 times. The phone comes with interchangeable straps and chains to customize its look. The brand has used vegan leather material for the strap.
The Honor V packs a 6.45-inch main screen with a resolution of 2348×1088 pixels and in the unfolded state, it becomes 7.7 inches with a resolution of 2348×2016 pixels. Both displays feature a flexible OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1,600 nits peak brightness. The device features an always-on display with various interactive and changeable wallpapers that match the user's outfit. Honor has worked with various artists to design AOD styles. This means the device can mimic the look of a handbag.
On the imaging front, the Honor V packs a dual rear camera setup of a 50MP main sensor with a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens. There is an 8MP front-facing selfie snapper.
Under the hood, the Honor V packs a Snapdragon 778G processor. It packs 16GB of RAM onboard and up to 512GB of storage. The device is backed by a 4,500mAh battery unit with support for 35W fast charging. Software-wise, it runs on MagicOS 7.1 based on Android T.
The Honor V Wallet starts at CNY 5,999 for the 16GB + 256GB variant while the 16GB + 512GB configuration is priced at CNY 6,599. It will be available in limited quantities with pre-booking from today and will go on sale from September 26. The device is offered in Camellia Gold, Glacier Blue and Elegant Black colors.
