Honor Magic Vs2: Honor’s foldable par excellence maintains the best of its essence and is now lighter

Honor, once a sub-brand of Huawei, has fully entered the world of foldables. So far this year we have already seen several mobile phones in this category appear, including the Magic V2 and Magic V Purse, but the Asian firm was keeping a surprise in store: the new Magic Vs2.

We are facing a device that arrives to replace the Magic Vs, available in Spain for about eight months, but it does so with a rather contained proposal. In other words, we are not facing a radical update, but some things have changed between generations.

A contained update, but an update nonetheless

At a design level, the new Magic Vs2 faithfully maintains the essence of the Magic Vs. However, the manufacturer has resorted to a magnesium alloy frame to reduce the weight of the device. We went from 265 grams of the previous generation to 229 grams of this generation (it is also lighter than the Magic V2).

As for the display panel, we continue with a 6.49-inch OLED external screen (2344×2156 pixels) and a 7.92-inch internal screen (2376×1060 pixels), both with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. As for the heart of the device, we also find the continuity of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 with its Adreno 730 GPU. Few changes here.

There is also no news regarding the battery capacity. It is 5,000 mAh which promises to last “all day”. At this point the 66W fast charging capacity is again present with the charger included in the box. If we talk about connectivity, we have compatibility for 5G networks (dual nanoSIM), Wifi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 and NFC.

In what follows there are some changes. In some markets, the previous generation had an 8 GB RAM version. This is now part of the past and, at least in China, the device arrives in the combinations of 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage and 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.

If you are one of the users who likes to take photographs, this information might interest you. The Magic Vs2 arrives with a camera 50 MP wide angle (f/1.9), a 20 MP telephoto lens (f/2.4, OIS) and a 12 MP ultra wide angle lens (f/2.2). All in a module that now shares the color of the terminal’s finish.

In relation to the operating system, this is still MagicOS, but in version 7.2. This proposal based on Android 13 is supported by the manufacturer’s applications to offer handwriting in different scenarios, multitasking with split screen, smart folders, application suggestions in relation to usage habits and more.

Price and availability of the new Honor Magic VS2

The new Honor Magic VS2 has been announced in China and, for now, it is available only in that country (We will update this article if the device reaches the Spanish market). Prices are as follows:

  • Honor Magic VS2 12 + 256: 6,999 yuan (about 909 euros at the exchange rate)
