Global technology brand Honor on Thursday announced the China launch of the Honor Magic Vs and the Honor 80 Series.

“We are thrilled to introduce our next-generation foldable flagship, the Honor Magic Vs, which packs groundbreaking innovations and exceptional user experience into an elegant and stylish design,” said Geroge Zhao, CEO of HONOR Device Co. Ltd. “The Magic Vs will be our very first foldable flagship to debut in overseas markets and we are confident that it will deliver huge advancements, transforming how people all around the world use their smartphone.”

The device is expected to be in UAE in Q2 next year.

What makes the Magic Vs special

The Magic Vs folds without gap and delivers a ceaseless display when unfolded. It’s packed with super-light gearless hinge carefully crafted with a single-piece casting processing technology, which drastically reduces the number of components of supporting structure used in the hinge from 92 to four, while maintaining its durability and sturdiness. Built with aerospace-grade materials, the hinge of the Magic Vs is able to withstand over 400,000 folds, equivalent to more than 10 years of use with 100 folds per day.

The industry-first AI Vlog Master feature helps identify shooting scenarios accurately and recommends the best-fit shooting mode including Macro, Night, Portrait, Solo Cut, Multi-Video and HDR Video to enable a seamless photography experience on the Honor 80 Series.

The Honor 80 Series features a best-in-class 160MP ultra-clear main camera, boasting a large 1/1.56-inch sensor with a native 2.24um pixel which captures more light, delivering high-quality photos in stunning detail, even in low light conditions.
