The build is also quite sturdy, and the design stands out. Honor claims to have employed “single-piece casting processing technology” and “aerospace-grade materials” for the Honor Vs. The company is offering its phone in black, cyan, and an eye-catching orange trim that appears to flaunt a faux-leather finish on the back, with gold accents on the side.
Coming to the innards, Honor has armed the Magic Vs with Qualcomm’s top-tier Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, ticking alongside up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of onboard storage. The imaging department is also quite impressive. The charge is led by a 54-megapixel primary camera, sitting alongside a 50-megapixel ultra-wide angle shooter that also doubles as macro snapper, and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom range.
The inner panel is a 7.9-inch foldable OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, while the outer cover display measures 6.45-inches across and offers a 90Hz refresh rate. Selfie and video calling duties are handled by a 16-megapixel sensor. Notably, the phone packs a rather beefy 5,000mAh battery — complete with 66W fast charging capability, which is way faster than what iPhones can muster.
Pricing is another pleasant surprise. The Honor Vs starts at 7,499 RMB, which translates to around $1,046 based on the current conversion rate to USD. For comparison, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 costs around $1,800 in the U.S. Unfortunately, the Honor Magic Vs, despite all its charisma, likely won’t come to the U.S. anytime soon.
