When talking about folding screen mobile phones, most people’s inherent thinking may associate them with negative factors such as thickness and inconvenience to carry. However, for the Honor brand, they had successfully solved this problem a year ago.
Last year, Honor Magic Vs took the lead in reducing the weight of the foldable phone to less than 270g, achieving the perfect combination of thinness and lightness with strong battery life, and completely solving the major pain point of foldable phones that are heavy, thick, and difficult to carry.
This year, Honor Magic V2 has further reduced the weight of the foldable flagship phone to less than 240g and the thickness to an astonishing less than 10mm, prompting many friends to follow suit and truly leading the folding screen mobile phone into the thin and light era. This is in the history of the development of foldable phones and even mobile phones. , has cross-epochal significance.
However, when many mobile phone brands are thinking about how to reduce the weight of folding screen mobile phones, Honor is once again making efforts to combine folding screen mobile phones with fashionable aesthetics from a female perspective and subvert the traditional folding screen. The way the screen is designed, this is Honor’s first inward-folding fashion item – Honor V Purse.
Honor V Purse is Honor’s first foldable phone to adopt an outward-folding form. In order to ensure that its quality, texture, and diversity are unique in the industry, Honor has taken the following measures:
1. The first Honor butterfly wing hinge breaks the industry record for thinness and lightness of folding screens
Honor V Purse is different from Honor’s other folding phones. It debuts Honor’s self-developed butterfly wing hinge, combined with butterfly wing-compliant bionic technology. This precise structural design allows almost no creases to be observed after the whole phone is unfolded.
At the same time, the biggest benefit of this hinge technology is that it can further reduce the volume inside the hinge, thus reducing the weight of the phone. This makes the Honor V Purse the thinnest and lightest folding phone in the industry.
2. The world’s leading Qinghai Lake dual-battery solution further reduces the weight and thickness of mobile phones
Honor V Purse is serious about making the industry’s thinnest external folding device. Honor specially used the Qinghai Lake battery first launched in the Magic 5 series, and used a dual-cell solution to evenly distribute the weight and thickness of the battery. Secondly, it reduced the thickness of the battery to 2.3mm, thereby further reducing the weight and thickness of the V Purse phone. Lose weight.
3. Innovatively introduce the new and trendy gameplay of Variety Wallet
In order to create trendy women’s fashion items, Honor V Purse introduces the new trendy gameplay of “variable wallets”. It uses the characteristics of inner folding and combines various forms of wallpapers to make the external screen into a “wallet” style, which can be carried with you. Honor V Purse When you go shopping, you will be the most handsome guy on the street.
Honor V Purse Design and Display
In the folded state, the Honor V Purse is the same as an ordinary mobile phone, with a 6.45-inch screen with a 19.4:9 ratio. It does not feel like a remote control when held in the hand.
Since the screen on the left needs to be bent inward, it will inevitably form a certain arc. Therefore, Honor has made the same arc on the right side of the phone, so that the grip of the whole phone in the folded state and the left and right borders remain unified. mellow feel.
The 8-megapixel front camera of Honor V Purse is located in the upper right corner of the screen and can be directly called in the folded or unfolded state. The thick outer frame of the Honor V Purse accommodates two cameras, a flash, and a folding buckle button. The frame is presented in light gold and white. This dual color can better show the fashion sense of the whole phone.
Unfold the screen, and a large 7.71-inch screen will appear in front of you. With 2K (2348*2016) resolution, the font images displayed on the screen are clear and delicate.
At the same time, the peak brightness of this screen reaches 1600nit. You can easily see the content displayed on the screen clearly under the bright sun. The high-frequency PWM dimming of 2160Hz further reduces damage to your eyes when using a large screen at night.
Honor V Purse is the world’s first outward-folding mobile phone using a butterfly wing hinge. With a body thickness of 8.6mm and a weight of 214g, it breaks the industry record for the thinness and lightness of folding screens.
In such a thin and light folding screen mobile phone, the Honor V Purse’s stereo dual speakers have not been cut off. There is one on the top and one on the bottom of the phone. The Type-C interface on the bottom is located on the right side of the phone.
On the right side of the V Purse, a fingerprint-style power button and volume adjustment buttons are integrated. Inside the package, a quick charging kit for the phone, a quick start guide, and a SIM card pin are included. The mobile phone’s fast charging adapter supports a power output of up to 35W.
The 7.71-inch internal screen of Honor V Purse, combined with the left frame and Honor’s exclusive personalized back screen and side display design, can show a magical display effect.
When the phone is folded and the screen is on, three clicks on the back of the phone can quickly call up personalized content displayed on the back screen and side, and the text displayed on the side and the picture displayed on the back can be customized.
We can make Honor V Purse a wearable fashion item by changing or customizing wallpapers with different styles, and the text displayed on the side can show personal status and social declaration, which is equivalent to one’s own inner monologue. A “personalized signature” on your mobile phone.
Not only can static wallpapers be changed, but V Pures also prepares a variety of dynamic wallpapers with dynamic effects. This wallet-like wallpaper is officially called a “variety of wallets”. V Purse has 47 built-in wallet types for you to choose from.
You can even use this back screen to quickly call payment codes by double-clicking on the back, including WeChat and Alipay. When you go shopping with Honor V Purse, you will be the most handsome guy on the street.
Moreover, we also found that when the Honor V Purse phone is placed upright, the main screen can display AOD. When the phone is placed on the back, it will automatically switch to the back screen display.
This principle is based on gravity sensing. The mobile phone will intelligently sense the current placement status, allowing information and screen savers to flow intelligently. No matter how the mobile phone is placed, important information will not be missed.
Honor V Purse Performance
Honor V Purse has a built-in Snapdragon 778G mobile platform, with up to 16GB + 512GB storage, supplemented by 8GB memory expansion, and is enabled by default. This is the version we received.
Next, we conducted a game test on this Snapdragon 778G foldable phone.
In the game test session, we chose to use the three popular games “Honor of Kings”, “Peace Elite” and “Call of Duty” in an office environment with a room temperature of 28 degrees, using a 7.71-inch internal screen for testing. During this period, we recorded the frame rate, power consumption and heating performance of the phone in the game.
1. King of Glory
In the Honor of Kings mobile game, the game can run at a maximum of 90 frames under extreme image quality + ultra-high resolution. After a fierce team battle for 10 minutes, the frame rate only fluctuates slightly, with an average of 90.1. FPS, running completely full frame, the average fluctuation is only 0.4.
In terms of power consumption, it is close to 3.5W, and the frame energy consumption is 39.2mW. In terms of power consumption, although it is an external folding phone, it is basically the same as other candy bar phones with the same core.
After the game, the maximum temperature on the front of the phone was 39.7 degrees Celsius, and the maximum temperature on the back was 40.7 degrees Celsius. The temperature was tested in a space with a room temperature of 28 degrees Celsius. Compared with a candy bar machine, this temperature may be a little hotter, but after a game, holding the phone with both hands did not affect the temperature. To the point where it’s so hot.
2. Call of Duty
Next is the test of the Call of Duty mobile game. The extreme frame rate is turned on under smooth image quality. The game runs at a maximum of 60FPS. The average frame rate of a game is stable at 60.4FPS, still running at full frame, and the average fluctuation is only 0.1.In terms of power consumption, the average power consumption of the whole machine is about 3.5W, and the frame energy consumption is 58.2mW. The power consumption is not high among mobile phones of the same level.
In terms of temperature, the maximum temperature is 37.9 degrees Celsius on the front and 38.8 degrees Celsius on the back.
3. Peace Elite
In the Peace Elite mobile game, when the extreme frame rate + high-definition image quality is turned on, the game runs at a maximum of 60 frames. After a team battle, the average frame rate is stable at 59.7 FPS. There are slight fluctuations during the game, but it does not affect the picture. Smoothness. The average power consumption is 3.68W, and the frame energy consumption is 61.6mW.
The temperature is slightly higher, with a maximum of 41 degrees Celsius on the front of the fuselage and 41.9 degrees Celsius on the back. As far as the actual measurement of three games is concerned, Honor V Purse has polished this 778G chip very well, and it is no problem for daily entertainment.
Honor V Purse Cameras
Honor V Purse has two rear cameras, the main camera is 50 Megapixels, f/1.9 aperture, and the other is a 12 million pixel ultra-wide-angle camera, f/2.2 aperture. In order to test the quality of these two lenses, we took many sample photos.
Main photo sample
The main photo sample, 50 Megapixels can provide excellent resolution, and capture clear and sharp images, and the cropped images in daytime scenes will not produce too much noise, and the colors presented are in a balanced state, without excessive exposure.
However, since there is no telephoto lens, if you directly zoom in on the picture, the resolution will decrease, which means that when shooting distant objects, you may lose some details and clarity.
Super wide-angle sample
Under the ultra-wide-angle lens, the Honor V Purse has the distortion correction function turned on by default, so there are no longer outward-bulging barrel-shaped images at both ends of the screen, while still maintaining a relatively wide field of view.
However, when faced with some scenes illuminated by strong light, some light diffraction phenomena will appear in the picture. The color of the middle picture will be uniform, and the pictures on both sides will be slightly whitened, which will affect the normal look and feel. Therefore, when using an ultra-wide angle to shoot the picture, When possible, try to avoid direct sunlight.
Night scene sample
When night scene mode is turned on, the phone will shoot night scenes with long exposure. The exposure time is not long, and the film is basically taken out within 2 seconds of pressing the shutter button.
Although the exposure time is short, the color and light of the captured picture are uniform, making the picture look clean and concise. Especially when faced with multi-color high-bright neon lights, the highlight suppression is relatively good.
Honor V Purse uses a new generation of Qinghai Lake dual batteries, with a built-in equivalent of 4400mAh battery, and supports up to 35W wired fast charging. We also tested the phone’s charging capabilities and the battery life of the internal and external dual screens.
The battery of the mobile phone was tested from 0% to screen off charging. In 30 minutes, the battery was charged to 52%. After one hour, the battery reached 93%. It took 67 minutes to fully charge. With this kind of charging capability, for ordinary users, the mobile phone can be used for about half a day during lunchtime.
For the battery life, we use the professional battery life testing tool – Battery Dog produced by Kuai Technology for testing.
For the test items, we chose the extreme battery life test and checked all test items including CPU high voltage, CPU multi-threading, AI recognition, picture browsing, video playback, and web browsing to simulate user usage scenarios and restore the real load to the greatest extent. Infinitely close to the real power consumption situation.
1. External screen battery life
We first conducted a battery life test on the Honor V Purse’s 6.45-inch internal screen. According to the battery dog test, the power consumption from 100% to 20% took 7 hours, 27 minutes, and 48 seconds. After conversion, the full battery time can reach approximately 9 Hours.
2. Internal screen battery life
Then we tested the battery life of the 7.71-inch internal screen. After testing, it took 6 hours and 24 minutes for Honor V Purse to consume power from 100% to 20%. After conversion, the full battery life can reach nearly 8 hours, which can meet the needs of daily users for a day.
