Every now and then, I see a smartphone that makes me totally jealous of people in China. Such is the case with the brand-new HONOR Magic V Flip, which officially launched in China today, June 13th. And get this: it was announced at a technology fashion show. Of course, this tells us a bit about the device’s nature.

HONOR has put a big focus on design with the Magic V Flip, and you can tell from the get-go. It is a gorgeous foldable phone. For starters, it is very thin at 7.15mm when unfolded, or 14.89mm when folded shut. It weighs 193g. The frame is curved and the device is available in three colors: black, white, and pink. These are not your typical colors, though. The black and white versions look almost pearl-like, and the pink one has a very unique pattern. All look more elegant and refined than most smartphones, and there’s also a special edition that is green and glittery.
