The Magic Vs boasts a user-friendly 6.45-inch external display with a 21:9 aspect ratio and a 90% screen-to-body ratio. When unfolded, the device delivers a tablet-like experience with an extra-wide 7.9-inch internal display. It also includes professional eye comfort solutions, such as Dynamic Dimming, Circadian Night Display, and 1920Hz Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Dimming.
The Magic Vs is equipped with an impressive rear triple camera system comprising a 54MP IMX800 Main Camera, a 50MP Ultra-Wide & Macro Main Camera, and an 8MP 3X Optical Zoom Camera. It is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Mobile Platform from Qualcomm, delivering enhanced performance with higher power efficiency. The device runs on the latest HONOR MagicOS 7.1 based on Android 13 and features Smart Multi-window and APP Extender to support multi-tasking across applications.
