Honor Magic V2

Honor officially announced that the popular foldable screen phone, Honor Magic V2, will officially go on sale today with a starting price of 8,999 yuan.

On the JD platform, we tested the delivery time for purchasing a Honor Magic V2. The platform shows that the product is currently being purchased, but it will not be available until September 16th.

The situation is the same on platforms like Tmall. This means that the Honor Magic V2 is in short supply. Although insiders from Honor previously stated that the stock of Honor Magic V2 reached one million units, the phenomenon of being difficult to find is still happening.

How difficult is it to get the popular Honor Magic V2? If you want to get your hands on this popular product this month, you need to prepare some extra money. Many e-commerce stores are selling the Honor Magic V2 at a higher price, with one store claiming to be able to deliver it by the end of July, but at a higher price. The original price of the Honor Magic V2, 16+512G version, priced at 9,999 yuan, is being sold here for 10,999 yuan.

This is not an isolated case, as the situation of selling the Honor Magic V2 at a higher price is happening on various e-commerce platforms, even though consumers are willing to pay more, the related stores still show “out of stock”.

This kind of popularity started during the pre-sale phase.

As of July 19th, before the official sale of the product, the Honor Magic V2 has been consistently ranked in the top three on the JD mobile phone bestseller list, with high popularity. On multiple second-hand platforms, some merchants are also selling this product at a higher price.

As early as the second day of the product release, Honor CEO Zhao Ming expressed on his personal Weibo that the full payment pre-sales of Honor Magic V2 on the first day of listing, broke the record for the first sales volume and sales amount of all Android phones in nearly a year.

This means that a large number of traditional flat-screen phone consumers are turning to the foldable screen camp. Zhao Ming said that the foldable screen, which is thin, light, and has long battery life, truly solves the pain points of consumers.

This indicates that in the current overall sluggish smartphone market, Honor Magic V2 has found new increments. Traditional flat-screen phone consumers are willing to change their consumption habits and experience a foldable screen phone with a hand feel close to a flat-screen phone.

In short supply, what makes Honor Magic V2 strong? Prior to this, foldable screen phones have not been the mainstream choice in the market. But now, the situation is undergoing a major change.

Firstly, the maturity of the industry chain and related technologies has made foldable screen phones perform and feel similar to traditional flat-screen phones, posing a threat to them. This provides consumers with a reason to choose foldable phones.

Honor’s innovative ideas cannot be ignored either. On the Honor Magic V2, the design team chose to divide a flat-screen phone into two and unfold it into a foldable screen phone. Honor Magic V2 weighs only 231 grams and is only 9.9 millimeters thick, making it the first foldable screen phone that is thinner than a flat-screen phone, truly bringing foldable phone products into the millimeter era.

New accessory technologies also make Honor Magic V2 stand out. Honor Magic V2 is the first flagship foldable screen phone to use a titanium alloy hinge. The product has passed the Swiss SGS high-reliability foldable quality gold standard certification and can withstand folding and unfolding 400,000 times. In addition, this product is equipped with a 5000mAh battery, which can meet the intensity of use for a whole day.

Honor Magic V2 is also the world’s first foldable flagship model that supports dual-screen zero-risk dimming eye protection. Both screens support 3840Hz ultra-high frequency PWM dimming, with a peak brightness of up to 2500nit. This allows the phone to be clearer in bright environments and more eye-friendly in dark environments.

Industry experts in the mobile phone industry have predicted that 2023 will be a year of full-scale development for foldable screens. According to a report from research firm Counterpoint Research, in the first quarter of this year, the global smartphone market size declined by 14.2% year-on-year, but the foldable screen smartphone market grew by 64%, with sales reaching 2.5 million units.

In an environment where smartphone penetration rate has reached its peak and the overall market is saturated, consumers are more willing to pay for the experience and quality, and there are also more opportunities in the high-end market. With its brand-new user experience, foldable screen smartphones are becoming a rising star in the smartphone market.

Today, the hot sales of Honor Magic V2 confirm this prediction. With the influence of Honor, more and more consumers are changing their habits and joining the foldable screen camp.
