HONOR Magic Vs2 Launches In China; Features Lighter, Thinner Body


HONOR has launched its second book-styled foldable smartphone of the year in China with the all-new Magic Vs2. Thanks to its newly-developed Luban titanium hinge, the device arrives lighter and slimmer than its predecessor, though it is still slightly thicker than the brand’s Magic V2 model, which still holds the title of being the thinnest foldable smartphone at only 9.9mm in its closed form.

According to HONOR, the newer Magic Vs2 weighs in at only 229 grams, while its thickness measures at 10.7mm in its folded state and just 5.1mm when unfolded. In terms of dimensions, the phone comes in at 157.5 x 74.4 x 10.7 mm and 157.5 x 146.2 x 5.1 mm respectively.
