According to the company, the Honor Magic Vs uses an entirely new hinge design, which reduces the 92 elements found in the previous model, Honor Magic V, to just four. This means there will be no crease on the Honor Magic Vs, a dream for any foldable smartphone maker and for users annoyed by this panel disruption.
Honor says that the new hinge “carefully crafted with a single-piece processing technology” and is capable of lasting for over 400,000 folds, which means you could fold this phone 100 times a day, and it would still be perfect for more than 10 years. It’s also the lightest foldable phone we know of yet, coming in at just 261g.
The Honor Magic Vs has a 7.9” foldable OLED 10-bit display with over 1 billion colors, 90Hz refresh rate and 800 nits brightness. On the outside, it offers a 6.45” OLED with 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+.
The Honor Magic Vs Ultimate edition comes with 16GB of RAM and the new Honor Magic Pen, which connects via Bluetooth and lets you scribble on that generous foldable display.
Under the hood, all models of the Honor Magic Vs come with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor but there will be multiple options when it comes to storage and RAM.
The most affordable choice will offer 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage and the mid-range choices have 12 GB RAM + 256 GB storage or 12 GB RAM + 512 GB storage.
The back has a triple-camera setup with a 54MP F/1.9 lens from Sony, a 50MP ultrawide angle camera and a 8MP telephoto camera, while the cover display has a 16MP selfie camera.
The Honor Magic Vs is powered by a 5,000 mAh battery with 66W fast charging, which will let you do a full charge in 46 minutes.
The line-up starts at around $1,050 and goes up to around $1,500 for the Honor Magic Vs Ultimate.
Right now, pre-orders for the phone are open in China but the worldwide launch will probably happen early next year.Also read: 7+ Of The Best Retro Headphones That Are Actually Worth Your Money
