At that time, Ana Sofía Peterson, Honorary PR Manager, said:
“This launch is extremely important to us because we are entering a high-end segment. (…) It is a growth that reflects the strength of the brand in Mexico and throughout Latin America»
Now, everything seems to indicate that the manufacturer is advancing in its expansion strategy outside of China and the launch of the Honor Magic Vs.
We are talking about the brand’s second folding this year, which translates into the update of the Honor Magic V that was presented in January 2022.In this way, we have few changes in terms of design. The real improvements come inside with a next-generation processor, a slightly more powerful battery, and an optimized folding system.
Let’s go to the features. As for design, we have a 7.9-inch internal screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate, as well as a 6.45-inch and 120 Hz external screen, in a case that folded is 12.9 millimeters thick and 6.1 millimeters when open.
Will the new Honor foldable arrive in Mexico?
The power is guaranteed for users with demanding needs. And it is that inside we have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor that is supported by two memory configurations: 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB or 512 GB of storage.
The battery promise is remarkable. Honor has said that its new Magic Vs will have a 5,000 mAh battery (up from the 4,750 mAh battery seen in its predecessor) with 66W fast charging that can reach 100 percent charge in just 46 minutes.
The folding system is perhaps one of the great improvements in the Honor Magic Vs. The manufacturer claims that it is now more resistant with a thinner hinge that guarantees nearly 40,000 folds, which is equivalent to opening and closing the smartphone 10 times a day for 10 years.
As for the photographic section, we have three rear cameras with a 54 MP main lens, a 50 MP ultra-wide lens that doubles as a macro camera, and an 8 MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. At the front, we have a 16 MP selfie camera.
The proposal for the new Honor Magic Vs wants to put it in direct competition with Samsung and Huawei, this time with an interesting view of achieving it.

And it is that the president of Honor, Gorge Zhao, confirmed that this will be the first foldable of the company to be sold outside of China, which does not rule out its possible arrival in Mexico, although without price clues.
For now, in its country of origin, the device will be sold with an initial price of 7,499 yuan, something like 20,259 Mexican pesos.
