Honor has teamed up with German automaker Porsche to design a foldable phone that “harnesses the distinctive DNA of a sports car.” The Magic V2 RSR is a limited edition version of Honor's flagship Magic V2, which claims the title of the world's lightest and thinnest book-style foldable phone.
The Magic V2 RSR's rear lid is designed to resemble the “flyline” of a Porsche 911's hood. The camera bump, framed in titanium, is shaped similar to the car's rounded windshield. Aside from the design, the biggest difference between the regular Magic V2 and the Porche edition is that the Magic V2 RSR comes with a stylus inside the box. The pen can be used on both the external and internal screen.
There are other small differences between the RSR edition and a regular Magic V2: the RSR model has more storage space (1TB vs. 512GB) and what Honor calls an anti-scratch nanocrystal shield display for the external display. The company claims this screen is better protected against drops and scratches than regular nanocrystal glass, thanks in part to a layer of silicon nitride on top of the glass material. And at 234 grams, the Magic V2 RSR is 3 grams heavier than the Magic V2.
These differences aside, the Magic V2 RSR is identical to the regular Magic V2. It has a still-robust Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, a triple camera module (complete with telephoto lens), and a large battery that supports 66-watt fast charging. It also comes with four years of Android software updates and five years of security updates.
Honor is expected to launch the Magic V2 RSR internationally at a higher price than the Magic V2, which starts at £1,700 in the UK and €1,999 in the EU.
