From CNET: After first debuting in its native China, Honor's slim foldable phone will soon be available internationally, giving Samsung fresh competition to Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 5. The announcement was made at the IFA event in Berlin on Friday alongside the reveal of a stylish concept phone called the Honor V Purse.

The Magic V2 will go on sale in parts of Europe and the UK, among other countries, before the first quarter of next year. Honor says there are currently no plans for a release in the United States. The company didn't reveal pricing information but in its native China, the V2 starts at 8,999 yuan. This converts to roughly $1,250, £970 or AU$1,850.

The Magic V2 is expected to ship before the end of the month.
