HONOR Magic Vs2 is the third foldable device from the former Huawei sub-brand after the launch of Magic V2 and Magic V Purse. And that’s not counting the international debut of Magic Vs earlier this year. Given such a short period of time, we can hardly expect anything significantly new from the company. Magic Vs2 largely repeats the first generation model, but there are similarities with Magic V2. In fact, this is a symbiosis of two folding smartphones. It is slightly lighter than its predecessors (229 grams), but inferior in thickness to the Magic V2.

The new product has exactly the same display and cameras (the resolution of the ultra-wide-angle camera is slightly lower – 12 megapixels) as the Magic V2, but the processor is the same as the Magic Vs. The HONOR Magic Vs2 continues to pack a 5000mAh battery with 66W charging support.

Due to the fact that some of the characteristics of the new product are inferior to its predecessors, Magic Vs2 has a lower starting price. The basic version with 12/256 GB costs 6,999 yuan. The smartphone will go on sale in China on October 17. It is noteworthy that the company’s previous foldable devices have not yet entered the international market.
