Honor V Purse has been launched in China. Earlier this month, the brand showcased the stylish foldable phone at the IFA 2023 tech exhibition in Berlin, Germany. At that time, the device was announced as a concept phone, but now it has been made official in China.
The Honor V Purse is a foldable phone with an outward folding design like the Huawei Mate Xs 2. Unlike inwardly foldable phones, it lacks a secondary cover display. While it’s not a functional purse for storing items, it can be worn like one with detachable chain-link straps. Honor describes it as a “phy-digital fashion statement,” blending physical elements with customizable Always-On Display (AOD) styles. Here is a look at the specifications, features, and price of the Honor V Purse.
Honor V Purse specifications and features
The Honor V Purse has a 7.71-inch OLED foldable screen that offers a resolution of 2,348 x 2016 pixels and a 10.5:9 aspect ratio. When folded, it shows a 6.45-inch screen on the front that offers a Full HD+ resolution of 2,348 x 1,088 pixels and a 19.4:9 aspect ratio. The screen offers a 90Hz refresh rate, 2160Hz high-frequency dimming, 10-bit colours, and up to 1,600 nits of brightness.
Under the hood, the Honor V Purse features the Snapdragon 778G chipset. The device includes 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 256GB / 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage, and runs on Magic OS 7.2-based Android 13. To keep the lights on, it has a 4,500mAh battery with 35W fast charging.
The display punch-hole of the Honor V Purse houses an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The rear side of the device has a 50-megapixel main camera with an f/1.9 aperture, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and an LED flash. When folded the device measures 156.5 x 74.7 x 8.6mm and weighs 214 grams, which makes it smaller and lighter than regular flagship phones like the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra or the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
