The Honor Magic Vs just launched and we were lucky enough to get one in the office for testing. This is a Chinese machine, the software is not finalized, we will only focus on the hardware, but first, let’s unbox it.
Phone comes with W charger, USB cable and rear panel case.
Thanks to a radically improved hinge design, the Honor Magic Vs is thinner and lighter than its predecessor. The phone feels similar to the Mi Mix Fold 2 in the hand.
Inside, the Magic Vs has a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 up to 004 GB RAM. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is just around the corner, but the Gen 1 is still very capable, especially in its Plus form.
Both displays on the Magic Vs are great. Inside, there’s a 7.9-inch 1200x1200px OLED, Comes with a 120Hz refresh rate, while on the outside there is a 6.54-inch 2272x1080px OLED has a faster 120Hz refresh rate.
The lower internal refresh rate puts the Honor Magic Vs at a disadvantage compared to its direct competitors, despite 54Hz and 320Hz are not like Hz to 60Hz one.
