Honor previously promised that Magic Vs will be available outside of China, and MWC 2023 is obviously the perfect place for such a launch.
In case you missed it, this is Honor's foldable phone that should take on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold, and three months ago, when it was announced in China, it promised an improved hinge, lighter body, and hardware improvements all around. The new hinge allowed it to close without a gap and while it is compromised of just four elements, it still promised durability and sturdiness, and it was good for over 400,000 folds.
The Honor Magic Vs runs on Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC and there were versions with 8GB or 12GB of RAM (and even 16GB as the Ultimate version), and 256GB or 512GB of storage. The phone has a 7.9-inch foldable OLED screen with 2272x1948 resolution, 90Hz refresh rate, and 800nits of brightness, while the external display is a 6.45-inch OLED with 2560x1080 resolution, as well as 120Hz refresh rate.
The rear camera system has triple sensors, including a 54MP Sony IMX800 main sensor, a 50MP ultrawide one, and an 8MP sensor with a telephoto lens. There is a 16MP selfie camera as well.
It also packs a 5,000mAh battery with 66W charging, all the usual connectivity options, and Magic UI 7.1 on top of Android 13.
As noted, Honor is launching the Magic Vs with a price of €1,599 in Europe, at least for the 12GB/512GB version, and will be available in two colors, Cyan and Black. It might be expensive but it is still cheaper than the Galaxy Z Fold4.
