Check out Honor’s Latest Foldable Phone
The Honor Magic VS is the company's latest foldable phone competing with Samsung’s Fold.
The world of foldable phones is rapidly evolving and improving with each iteration, and Samsung is no longer the sole leader of the Galaxy Z Fold 4.
In this post, I will introduce you to Honor’s latest contribution to the foldable phone industry.
What is a foldable phone?
A foldable phone is a type of smartphone with a flexible display that can fold or bend, allowing the device to be folded or unfolded like a book or a wallet.
These phones use advanced materials and technology to create a display that is durable enough to withstand repeated folding and unfolding.
Foldable phones offer several advantages over traditional smartphones, including larger-screen real estate, multitasking more easily, and increased portability.
They are also often designed to be more compact when folded, making them easier to carry in a pocket or bag.
Foldable phones are a relatively new type of device, and as such, they are still evolving and improving with each new iteration. Some of the top manufacturers of foldable phones include Samsung, Huawei, Motorola, and now Honor.
While they are still more expensive than traditional smartphones, the price is expected to decrease over time as the technology becomes more widespread and production costs decrease.
About Honor’s Foldable Phone
At Mobile World Congress 2023, Honor showcased its Magic VS, a new Android competitor that promises to be a game-changer in the foldable phone market. The device features lots of storage and a slightly lower price point than its key competitor, making it a more appealing option for those looking to upgrade.
If you’ve been following rumors about the Galaxy Z Fold 5 or eyeing a new Galaxy Z Fold 4, you know how expensive these phones can be.
The Honor Magic VS’s asking price of approximately USD 1700 with 512GB storage isn’t low, but it’s positioned with more storage and at a lower on-sale starting price than its key competitor.
This is a significant factor for foldable phones, which are typically much more expensive than the best phones currently on the market.
Additionally, the Magic VS boasts a massive 7.9-inch diagonal when unfolded, making it more extensive than the Samsung Galaxy Z 4.
If you want more screen real estate, Honor has got you covered. Even when the device is folded, it still delivers on the scale, with an exterior screen of 6.45 inches, comparable to the best phones available today.
Under the hood, the Magic VS features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ processor, which is only a half-step behind the Gen 2 upgrade.
While some users may be disappointed by this, the generational jump is insignificant enough to cause any significant problems.
Furthermore, Honor is running full Google Play Services, meaning there are no software compromises as you might find with some China-only foldable.
During Mobile World Congress 2023, I had the opportunity to test the Honor Magic VS and will be sharing a more thorough assessment of the device in the near future.
The device isn’t cheap, but it represents a significant step towards making foldable technology more accessible for all. Other companies will likely follow Honor’s lead and release more affordable foldable devices in the near future.
Honor Magic VS is a new Android competitor that promises to shake up the foldable phone market.
With its large size, ample storage, and lower price point than its key competitor, it represents a significant step towards making foldable technology more accessible for everyone.
While the processor may not be the latest and greatest, it still delivers a powerful performance that will satisfy most users.
And with full Google Play Services, there are no software compromises to worry about.
Overall, the Honor Magic VS is a compelling option for anyone in the market for a new foldable phone.
