Along with the Magic6 series, HONOR also introduced the PORSCHE DESIGN HONOR Magic V2 RSR in China. This follows the company’s recently announced partnership with Porsche Design.

The PORSCHE DESIGN HONOR Magic V2 RSR is the special edition of the existing HONOR Magic V2, that was released last year. The foldable, inspired by motorsports, boasts a design reminiscent of a Porsche 911 hood, and it weighs only 234g and is just 9.9mm thick. The improved grip offers a sportscar experience in the user’s palm.

The PORSCHE DESIGN HONOR Magic V2 RSR incorporates the industry’s first Anti-scratch NanoCrystal Shield, providing tenfold improved scratch resistance and scoring a hardness rating of over seven on the Mohs scale, ensuring the phone’s display durability.

Apart from these design changes, the specifications of the foldable are similar to those of the standard version of HONOR Magic V2.
