HONOR, has officially announced the UK launch date and price of its highly anticipated folding flagship smartphone, the HONOR Magic Vs. The Magic Vs will be available for purchase in the UK starting May 19th on the HONOR website, Hihonor, and from May 26th on Amazon, Argos, and Very in Black. Customers can also look forward to obtaining the Magic Vs with Three in Early June and a special offer of 6 months of free airtime on Unlimited data plans.
With an RRP of £1,399, the HONOR Magic Vs the new phone hits the premium price point. However, customers who subscribe for more information and purchase the device before May 26th can take advantage of special launch offers from Hihonor, bringing the price down to £1,199.
One of the key highlights of the Magic Vs is its slim and lightweight profile, measuring just 12.9mm thin when folded and weighing a mere 267g. Despite its compact nature, it boasts a 5000mAh battery, the largest capacity among foldable smartphones under 270g.
The Magic Vs achieves its lightweight design thanks to the Super-light Gearless Hinge, crafted using single-piece casting technology. This groundbreaking hinge reduces the number of structural components from 92 in previous generations to only 4, setting a new standard for durability. Tested by TÜV Rheinland, the hinge can withstand up to 400,000 folds, equivalent to more than ten years of use based on 100 folds daily.
In addition to its sleek design, the HONOR Magic Vs offers an exceptional viewing experience. It features a user-friendly 6.45-inch external display with a 21:9 aspect ratio and a 90% screen-to-body ratio. When unfolded, users can enjoy a tablet-like experience on the extra-wide 7.9-inch internal display, perfect for multitasking and content consumption.
The big feature that we’re interested in here at Camera Jabber is of course, the photo and video potential.
The HONOR Magic Vs has an impressive rear triple camera system. The setup includes a 54MP IMX800 Main Camera, a 50MP Ultra-Wide & Macro Main Camera, and an 8MP 3X Optical Zoom Camera. This powerful combination will enable you to capture stunning images with exceptional detail, clarity, and vibrant colours.
With the 54MP IMX800 Main Camera, you can expect high-resolution photos that bring out the finest details in every shot. Whether it’s a breathtaking landscape or a close-up of a subject, the camera promises to capture every detail accurately.
The 50MP Ultra-Wide & Macro Main Camera is perfect for capturing expansive scenes and getting up close to subjects. It allows users to capture a wider field of view, making it ideal for group photos, architectural shots, or breathtaking landscapes. Additionally, the macro capabilities enable you to explore the tiny world, capturing intricate details again with stunning clarity.
If you want zoom potential, then the 8MP 3X Optical Zoom Camera is handy. It provides a versatile zoom range, allowing you to get closer to subjects without compromising image quality whether it’s wildlife photography, sports events, or capturing details from a distance.
In addition to the impressive hardware, the HONOR Magic Vs also incorporates advanced photography features and modes. These include AI scene detection, which automatically recognises the scene being photographed and adjusts the camera settings accordingly for optimal results. This ensures that you can quickly capture stunning photos without manually adjusting settings.
The Magic Vs also offers various shooting modes for different photography preferences. You can experiment with features like Night Mode for capturing stunning low-light shots with reduced noise, Portrait Mode for beautifully blurred backgrounds and focused subjects, and Pro Mode for manual control over settings such as ISO, shutter speed, and white balance.
