With its Honor Magic range, the Chinese firm has established itself as a competitor not to be underestimated in the war waged between Asian giants on the foldable smartphone market. To differentiate itself, Honor has made a point of delivering the thinnest possible foldable model, an objective largely achieved last year with its Magic V2 and its 9.90 millimeters thickness when closed.

To compare with the most popular foldable models on the market, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is 13.4 millimeters thick, the OnePlus Open reaches 11.7 millimeters and the new Motorola Razr 50 Ultra exceeds 14 millimeters when closed. In other words, no other firm has been able to offer such a fine model since the marketing of the Magic V2, and Honor intends to maintain this position on the market with its new model, the Magic V3, which the firm is teasing today via a communicated on the Chinese social platform Weibo.

The thinnest foldable smartphone

In recent years, it is clear that in terms of form, the current leader in the foldable smartphone market Samsung has somewhat rested on its laurels. The iterations follow one another and are similar, and it is the competition (mainly Chinese) which offers itself the luxury of experimenting. In a post on the social network WeiboHonor teases its next model, the Honor Magic V3 by describing it as a “ultra-thin foldable smartphone which will offer new horizons to foldable and slimming“.

In the same post, Honor also shared an image that allows us to compare it to the Magic V2: the difference is quite striking, and based on the image, the model could well be less than 8 millimeters thick, which would make it as thick as an iPhone 15. There is no doubt that this small size calls for certain compromises, however (especially in terms of the battery), it remains to be seen what decisions have been made by the Chinese firm for the construction of its hardware. The Honor Magic V3 should be presented very soon for marketing this year in China.
