Honor will soon be launching its new foldable smartphone, the Magic Vs2, which is touted to be even thinner and lighter than its predecessor, the Magic V2. The official introduction of the Magic Vs2 is set to take place on October 12, alongside the unveiling of the Wear OS-powered Watch 4 Pro smartwatch.
Initially, these devices will be released in China, with no information yet regarding their availability in other countries. According to the reliable Weibo leaker, Digital Chat Station, the Magic Vs2 is expected to be a more affordable variant of the Magic V2.
Despite being thinner and lighter, the Magic Vs2 will have slightly downgraded specifications. It will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, unlike the Magic V2’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The leaked specifications also indicate that the phone will feature a 50-megapixel f/1.9 main camera, along with ultra-wide and macro cameras. The display will offer a 2K refresh rate, but its size remains undisclosed at this time.
Internally, the Magic Vs2 is rumored to come with 16GB of RAM and support for 66W fast charging. It will also feature a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for added convenience and security.
Considering the hardware differences, we can anticipate the Magic Vs2 to be priced lower than the Magic V2. Currently, the Magic V2 is available in China for approximately $1,235. Therefore, a price around $1,000 would be a reasonable expectation for the Magic Vs2. Stay tuned for more updates on this sleek and lightweight foldable smartphone from Honor.
