On Tuesday, 21 May, Madhav Sheth hinted at the impending release of an Honor Magic foldable phone in India via an X post. The post features the Vivo X Fold 3 Pro launch announcement posters, in which Sheth pokes fun at the folding phone by posing the query "Confidence or Naiveté?" "Honor Magic series will exceed Indian consumers' expectations in reality" is the language that appears on the post.

Honor Magic series: Release Date

Sheth has yet to disclose the precise release date or model for the Magic series in India, which is noteworthy because it will undoubtedly compete with the Vivo X Fold 3 Pro, which is set to arrive in the market.

In September of last year, during IFA 2023, the Honor Magic V2 was revealed. A special edition, the Honor Magic V2 RSR, was later developed by the business in association with Porsche Design. They were revealed during the MWC 2024 in February in a few markets.
