Work is going on inside Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which is supported by 16 GB LPDDR5X RAM. The manufacturer installs 256, 512 or 1,024 GB of UFS 4.0 storage. The hardware is powered by a silicon-carbon battery, which despite the compact size of the device has a capacity of 5,000 mAh. The external OLED display measures 6.43 inches, has a FullHD+ resolution and offers a 120 Hz refresh rate. Inside is a 7.92-inch foldable OLED panel. The latter offers a QHD resolution, 120 Hz and native pen support.

The third sensor, a telephoto lens with 2.5x zoom, has a resolution of 20 MP. It is not yet clear how much the Magic V2 will cost in this country. The predecessor was launched last year for 1,600 euros.
