Honor Magic Vs might be the Galaxy Z Fold 4 killer in Europe
Honor Magic Vs vs Galaxy Z Fold 4 thickness comparison
How has Honor fitted such a larger battery in a slimmer foldable phone? Easy, it’s a slightly taller and wider device, allowing for more of the internal space to be used for energy storage. In fact, the external display of the Honor Magic Vs is a 6.45-inch OLED screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio and 120Hz refresh rate, as well as 1200 nits maximum brightness and 1920Hz PWM (pulse-width modulation) dimming, which should strain your eyes way less, especially in low-light situations. On top of that, the bezels at the front are reportedly much slimmer than what you’d normally get on the Galaxy Z Fold 4.

Inside the Honor Magic Vs, we find a 7.9-inch OLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, QHD+ resolution and 800 nits of maximum brightness, as well as the same 1920Hz PWM dimming technology that aims to go easy on your eyes.
On the hardware front, the Honor Magic Vs comes along with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip. That’s alright, though it would have been much better if the company had secured the newest, most powerful and efficient chip in Qualcomm’s arsenal, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The phone will be outfitted with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.

The phone also comes with a triple-camera setup, consisting of 54MP main camera, an 8MP telephoto lens, as well as a 50MP ultra-wide camera, as well as a flicker sensor at the back which automatically adjusts the shooting settings so that you get no flicker in your videos.
What about the price? Well, the Honor Magic Vs is priced at EUR1599 in Europe, and won’t be available in the US. Overall, that’s a pretty aggressive pricing that immediately puts the Honor Magic Vs versus its more popular competitor in the foldable space, the Galaxy Z Fold 4, which usually costs around EUR 1700 in Europe, though Samsung is happy to offer various promotions, trade-in bonuses, and rebates on the regular.
