Honor Magic Vs: A foldable smartphone with top parameters

Honor’s separation from Huawei took place a few years ago, but the latest smartphones are still very similar. It’s quite logical and we’ll have to wait a while until it stops being so completely. However, Honor phones have one big advantage – support for Google services. The manufacturer has now introduced its new foldable smartphone – Honor Magic Vs, which does not resemble the Huawei puzzles. The manufacturer informed us about the smartphone through a press release.

Honor Magic Vs: Price and Availability

Honor Magic Vs will be made in orange, cyan and black colors. From November 23, it will be available for pre-order on the Chinese market at a price of 7,499 Chinese yuan (approximately 1015 euros). We do not yet have information about availability in Slovakia.

Light, thin and durable

In the case of the new Honor Magic Vs, the manufacturer first of all boasts about it thickness, which is only 12.9 mm in the closed state. That’s a very interesting value for a foldable smartphone. The same applies to weight 261 grams. Although it is a lot, it is rather a lighter device in the field of puzzles. The lower weight is also attributed to an improved hinge that uses fewer components and is made from materials that are used in the aerospace industry. It can withstand up to 400,000 bendswhich means 10 years of use with 100 openings per day.

The biggest battery in a flip phone

It surpasses the competition in the capacity of the battery, which is up to 5000 mAh, which no folding phone offers so far. The design is solved in such a way that the manufacturer chose two displays. That is, similar to, for example, foldable smartphones from Samsung. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 will be its biggest competitor in Slovakia. However, the advantage of Honor is the external display with a more normal aspect ratio of 21:9. It’s still really wide-angle, but it’s wider than Samsung’s, so it will be more comfortable to use. It has a diagonal of 6.45″ and occupies up to 90% of the front part of the device.

The main star should of course be the internal flexible display. It got a diagonal of 7.9″ and covers the function of a smaller tablet without any problems. Its aspect ratio is ideal for work, there is also the possibility of using several windows at once.

High performance, decent camera setup

The chipset takes care of the performance Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. The newer Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 was introduced just a few days ago, so it is quite logical that the manufacturer has not deployed it yet. We are still waiting for the first smartphone with this chipset. Depending on the variant, the operating memory has a capacity of either 8 GB or 12 GB, the storage offers a capacity of 256 or 512 GB.

It is located on the back a trio of cameras. The main one offers a resolution of 54 megapixels and is complemented by a 50 MP ultra-wide-angle camera and an 8 MP telephoto lens with three times optical zoom. The device runs on an operating system Android 12 with MagicOS 7.0 superstructure. At this time, we would expect the newer Android 13.

Honor Magic Vs: Competition

There are quite a few foldable smartphones with a flexible display on the market, but most of them are not sold in Slovakia. In our country, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 has a practically privileged position. It is the only one so far that offers IPX8 waterproof certification. It has a high-quality display, full functional equipment and support for the S Pen touch pen.

The competition is also Huawei Mate Xs 2, which is the only one that offers only one display, part of which is also available in the closed state. This makes the device pleasantly thin, but the display is constantly exposed to the surroundings. This smartphone also offers top equipment and quality cameras.

However, there are also Chinese manufacturers who do not sell their folding models here. The latest vivo X Fold+, Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 or OPPO Find N are definitely worth mentioning.
