We were able to spend some time gawking at the Honor V Purse and captured a gallery of shots for your viewing pleasure.
Now, we weren’t allowed to touch the concept phone, but it looks better in the hands of Honor’s models anyway.
From the outside, the Honor V Purse concept looks quite a bit like the Huawei Mate Xs 2. It uses the same wraparound display that can fold flat on itself, resulting in a thinner profile, no gap, and no need for a cover display.
But while the Mate Xs 2 is around 11.1mm, the Honor V Purse is just 9mm – a substantial improvement.
Honor calls the V Purse design a “phy-digital fashion statement” – combining physical designs (the straps) with interactive always-on display styles. The goal is that with interchangeable straps and a variety of AOD designs (which are visible on both sides since this is an outward foldable), you can match the Honor V Purse to any outfit you wear, thus reducing your reliance on fast fashion.
The Honor V Purse is a concept device and may very well never make it to a shelf near you. Or perhaps not in this Pret-a-Porter guise. We could still see a direct Huawei Mate Xs 2 rival from Honor so fingers crossed.
