Honor’s first foldable, the Magic V went on sale in January 2022 and even though design was refreshed with the Magic Vs in the second half of the year, we’re still overdue for a proper sequel. Rumor has it that the Honor Magic V2 will be introduced on July 12, three weeks from now.
Apparently, it will have Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and 8 Gen 2 variants with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB storage. Other rumored changes include doubling the resolution on the main camera to 108MP and the addition of 50W wireless charging to the 5,000mAh battery (which already supported 66W wired charging on the Vs).
Details on the main display are scarce, but it will apparently be upgraded to an LTPO panel with higher (than 90Hz) refresh rate and with high-frequency PWM dimming.

Digital Chat Station also posted details on the Honor X50, a sequel to the X40 from September. That one is expected to appear in China on July 5 with a Snapdragon 6 Gen 1, which will be paired with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB storage. The display will be larger 6.78” AMOLED display (up from 6.67”) and its resolution will be bumped up from 1080p-class to 1220p-class to balance the pixel density.
Also, the X50 is said to have a 108MP camera on its back (with a 2MP helper), plus a dual camera on the front. This phone will have a large 5,800mAh battery with relatively slow 35W charging (compared to 5,100mAh/40W for the X40).
DCS also mentions that a MagicPad tablet is slated to launch later on, while the Magic6 series of rigid flagship is set to arrive in the first quarter of 2024.
