The Honor Magic Vs was announced in November 2022 to the Chinese audience and later began its global journey in February 2023 during MWC in Barcelona. Today, Honor revealed the foldable is finally reaching the United Kingdom with a price tag of £1,399.
The foldable will go on sale on May 19 at the company website in Cyan and Black colors. A week later, it will hit Amazon, Argos, and Very, where only the latter color option will be available. According to the official press release, the carrier Three will also offer the Magic Vs in Early June with 6-month free airtime on Unlimited data plans.
This is one of the first foldables that escaped China and aims to challenge Samsung’s dominance in the field. When we reviewed the Magic Vs in March, we found its battery life and charging quite impressive, and the chipset had more than enough power.
However, Honor is still struggling with developing the software to fully take advantage of the extensive external screen.
Nevertheless, the device remains one of the lightest foldables on the market. With an excellent camera experience, it might be worth its price tag, which could go down to £1,199 if you subscribe to a newsletter and complete the purchase before May 26.
Even more attractive when you consider that Honor are offering £200 off vouchers plus some preorder goodies supposedly "worth £500" if you sign up with email. At the very least it's nice to see some downwards pressure on foldable ...
You could almost call it a bargain compared with the new Huawei foldable! Worth it?!
