CEO of Honor, George Zhao said

Today’s consumers are focused on leading fashionable, digital lifestyles,” …¬†“To cater to these needs, HONOR is defining what’s next for smartphones, debuting the HONOR V Purse which seamlessly combines cutting-edge innovation with a chic design. Testament to our commitment to constantly exploring bold new form factors to keep up with the latest lifestyle trends, the HONOR V Purse will inspire a new generation of runway-worthy smart products that are unlike anything on the market today.”

Thinnest Foldable Phone in the world

The HONOR V Purse, which measures just 8.6mm when folded and 4.3mm when unfolded, breaks the previous record for thinness for foldable cell phones. This new record is part of its quest for the slimmest and lightest foldable form factor. The innovative bag phone, which weighs only 214g gives buyers the ability to fold up of a huge folding screen without the weight of typical folding phones.

The brand-new HONOR hinge makes it possible to achieve the most recent strides in folding thinness. It uses super springs that are 1.2 mm thick and tiny gears with a 1.73 mm diameter. The new hinge uses HONOR’s own steel and unique folding mechanism to provide superb toughness while being amazingly light.

A variety of similar straps and chains that clip onto the HONOR V Purse’s hinge enable you to easily wear the¬†phone over your shoulder or carry it in your hand. This design earns it the “PURSE” name. With a series of custom always-on display (AOD) designs that mimic a handbag design, this device makes a good fashion statement.¬†The phone’s clasp, which unlocks the screen with a pleasing click, much like the buckle on a¬†clutch, makes unfolding it a unique experience.

Honor V Purse Camera

The HONOR V Purse is a mobile photo studio with a 50MP IMX800 sensor that you can wear. The huge screen can be folded down and used as a digital viewfinder. Thus, you can see what the camera sees when taking selfies with the back cameras. It can also be used as a fill light to help you produce beautiful portrait images. A dual-purpose 12MP ultra-wide and macro camera gives the potent primary camera more range. It allows users to take great landscape photos and wide group photos. Users can also capture decent close-up shots that reveal details that are often missed by the unaided eye.

The HONOUR V Purse has a cutting-edge 7.71-inch 2K flexible OLED display with a peak brightness of 1,600 nits. The smart screen, when paired with an anti-reflective coating allows more light to flow through to reduce reflection. This makes the display remain colourful and legible in direct sunshine.

This feature can virtually reduce¬†harmful screen flicker. Also, the¬†Dynamic Dimming and Circadian Night Display can¬†reduce eye fatigue caused by long mobile phone use.


This mobile phone comes with two silicon-carbon batteries that¬†deliver a total of 4,500mAh.¬†The silicon-carbon cells, which use HONOR’s pioneering low-voltage charge-gathering technology, have reworked circuitry and a decent¬†discharge system. It offers¬†360% more charge than typical graphite-based battery systems. It also¬†enables¬†the HONOR V Purse to perform well¬†at low voltages. With the 7.71-inch 2K display unfolded, the new Silicon-carbon anodes allow the batteries to be as thin as a name card.
