Brand new Android phone from Honor gets one over on Samsung | The Sun

THERE'S a new Android foldable smartphone on the block which tackles a key issue even Samsung hasn't cracked yet.

Honor has launched the Magic Vs, a foldable that has no pesky gap.

There have been all sorts of foldables since they burst onto the scene a few years ago, from the likes of Samsung, Huawei and Oppo.

But the gap that's created by the hinge has been a massive problem, taking extra space in people's pockets.

Honor's Magic Vs features a "gapless" hinge.

And although UK pricing is yet to be confirmed, the European tag of 1,599 euros is less than Samsung's Z Fold4 equivalent with 512GB of storage.

The Magic Vs is the company's first foldable to be released outside of its native China.

When opened out, the internal screen is 7.9-inches wide.

And when folded into a traditional smartphone format, you have a 6.45-inch display.

The device is 12.9mm thick when closed – versus 14.2mm on Samsung's Z Fold4.

Honor also claims the Magic Vs can survive 10 years of opening and closing.

That's based on a test of 400,000 folds and assuming the average number of folds is 100 times a day.

It's also has the largest ever battery in a foldable.

The Magic VS will be available in the UK from June.

At a huge launch event in Barcelona, Honor also revealed its new flagship, the Magic5 Pro.

The handset goes big on photography, with a triple main camera combo, including a 50MP Wide Camera, a 50MP Ultra-Wide Camera, and a 50MP Telephoto Camera.

One of the star features is a clever AI Motion sensing capture, which is capable of shooting clear shots from fast movements.

It'll be out in the UK from early May 2023.

The company is aiming for the budget friendly side too, with the Honor Magic5 Lite.
