If you’re a productivity hero or simply one who prefers a bigger screen then this one’s for you. The Honor Magic V2 5G measures just 9.9mm in thickness when folded and an astonishing 4.7mm thin when unfolded, making it one of the slimmest devices around. Tipping the scales at just 231g, it even puts some conventional candy bar phones to shame.

The device is built with a titanium hinge, increasing shaft cover strength by 150% and thus ensuring it’s as tough as it is super light.

On the front is a glorious 6.43” 120Hz LTPO screen, great for productivity and general use. When you’re in the mood to do more, simply open the device and watch as a whole new world unfolds. A 7.92” 120Hz OLED screen greets you with over a billion colours and colour-accurate DCI-P3 splendour.

Under the hood is the top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset – powerful yet power-efficient, coupled with ample 16GB of memory and 512GB of storage. Baked in with a generous 5,000mAh battery, you’ll rarely be caught without juice but even if you do, Honor 66W SuperCharge technology will ensure you’re up and running in no time.

On the optics front, the Honor Magic V2 5G is armed with an impressive camera array headlined by a 50MP wide camera with OIS (optical image stabilisation), a 50MP ultra-wide camera and a 20MP telephoto camera with OIS that’s capable of up to 40x digital zoom.

Another skinny yet spacious foldable smartphone to consider is the expansive OPPO Find N3. It weighs a “barely there” 238g and measures just 5.8mm in thickness when unfolded, making it one of the lightest and thinnest foldable devices in the market today.

Understated it is certainly not, proudly parading its iconic Cosmos Ring design that draws inspiration from luxury watches. The device radiates distinctive charm and timeless sophistication whether you resonate with the Champagne Gold or Classic Black colour variant.

The Find N3 delivers an unparalleled viewing experience, led by a 6.3” cover screen that boasts a mind-blowing 2800 nits of peak brightness, 120Hz dynamic refresh rate and protected by ultra-thin nanocrystal glass.

When you’re ready for more visual immersion, unfold the device to reveal a 7.8” 120Hz main display that also sports 2800 nits of peak brightness and Dolby Vision. With innovative split screens that change the way you multitask, the Find N3 encourages you to work smarter and play harder.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform delivers flagship performance that you expect from a flagship device and stays cool thanks to its industry-leading cooling system. Mated to this power-efficient mobile chip platform is 16GB of memory and a generous 512GB of storage.

The massive 4,805mAh battery keeps up with you all day while 67W SUPERVOOC flash charging ensures you’re quickly up and running in case power gets too low.

This foldable holds back little in the camera department. Co-developed with renowned medium format camera and lens brand Hasselblad, the pro-grade triple camera system is impressive indeed. Headlined by a 48MP wide-angle main camera with a stacked pixel architecture, it is flanked by a 64MP periscope telephoto camera capable of 3x optical zoom and a 48MP ultra-wide angle shooter. What more, you can experience the signature “bokehlicious” portraits of the renowned XCD lens series with Hasselblad Portrait Mode.
