The new Honor Magic Vs is the company's second-generation foldable phone and the direct sequel to the Honor Magic V. It features a unique design painted in a golden finish. The phone's appearance is improved even more by the wavy pattern, which can be seen on the rear of the device. It has a distinctively shaped camera bump on its rear.
The rumour mill suggests the screen will stay the same too. The device will have an OLED display with 1 billion colours and a refresh rate of 120 hertz. The resolution of the main 7.9-inch display will be 2272 by 1984 pixels, with a pixel density of around 381. The outer screen will be about 6.45 inches in size, with a Full HD+ resolution and a 21:9 aspect ratio. This is nearly equal to the display specs of its previous versions. Let's keep our fingers crossed that the company updates the screen with some nifty new functions.
Reports suggest that the device's current specs may remain unchanged. The old Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will be replaced with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 in this gadget. Android 13.1 and Magic UI 7.0 will power the software side of the gadget. The device's efficiency will improve somewhat as a result of this. The fact that it may be folded into a compact size increases its portability and usefulness. The smartphone only has 12 GB of RAM. There are, however, storage alternatives available, with capacities of up to 256 GB or 512 GB.
It is speculated that the device will lack a card slot, which would allow for expansion, but this has not yet been confirmed. Wi-Fi Direct and dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 will handle wireless internet connectivity, with external devices being connected through Bluetooth 5.2. It's possible that the gadget will include NFC and USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity. The corporation may choose to keep some of the characteristics of its older models. A side-mounted fingerprint sensor is also available.
The photos suggest that the foldable phone will feature three cameras. Each of these three cameras has a resolution of 50 megapixels. The maximum aperture of the main camera will be f/1.9. While the second camera will have a spectrally enhanced f/2.0 aperture, the third camera will be an ultrawide f/2.2 lens. The inside and outside displays are expected to feature a single selfie camera each, featuring a 42 megapixels resolution for taking high-quality selfies.
According to rumours, the device's battery capacity is 5,000 mAh, making it significantly larger than that of its predecessor. This ensures longer battery life. The included 66W quick charger allows for rapid battery replenishment. The gadget would benefit from this if it were true.
Price and Availability
As of right now, the retail price of this phone is being kept under wraps. To estimate, we may use the Honor Magic V pricing of $1396 as a benchmark. However, the release date of this phone has not been set in stone. A release to stores in 2019 is expected, however.
