Aside from the Honor Magic 5 series, the Chinese company will also be releasing its foldable phone, the Honor Magic Vs, in Malaysia next month. It is a slightly upgraded version of the original Magic V – which was launched early last year – and naturally, it sports a number of high-end features.
Powering the Magic Vs, for one, is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. It should be able to deliver the performance level of a proper flagship smartphone, and aside from that, it also has a larger 5,000mAh battery now (250mAh more) than the Magic V with support for 66W fast charging.
Other specifications of the Magic Vs include the familiar 7.9-inch 2272 x 1984 OLED foldable display with a 90Hz refresh rate, a 6.45-inch 2560 x 1080 OLED cover screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, a triple camera system (54MP primary + 50MP ultra-wide + 8MP telephoto), and a 16MP selfie camera.
The Honor Magic Vs is set to be launched in Malaysia sometime in April 2023 next month alongside the Magic 5 series. No word yet on its local asking price, but in China, the foldable phone retails from 7,499 Chinese yuan (about RM4,885) for the base 8GB + 256GB model.
