The smartphone design is changing and after the notch, the next trend is the sliding camera design and after Mi MIX 3, Honor has launched the new Honor Magic 2 with the same design. Lenovo Z5 Pro is expected to launch with the similar design later on.
Key highlights of the Honor Magic 2 are it sports a triple rear camera setup, the company’s latest 7nm HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC, 40W Magic Charge fast charging tech and Sliding front camera setup.
Honor Magic 2 features 6.4” OLED panel with Full HD+ resolution in 19:9 ratio with a curved 2.5D glass on top. On the inside, we see the latest chipset by HiSilicon, coupled with either 6 GB RAM or 8 GB RAM. The storage is either 128 GB or 256 GB.
The dual-SIM Honor Magic 2 runs Magic UI 2.0 based on Android 9.0 Pie – the first few models will run EMUI 9.0 however and will receive an update later. The display slides down to reveal the front camera and 3D Face Unlock sensors. It is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC, with two Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.6GHz, two Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 1.92GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz.
Honor Magic 2 bears a triple rear camera setup. It bears a 16-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, a 24-megapixel monochrome sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, and a 16-megapixel sensor with a super wide-angle lens and an f/2.2 aperture. The company is touting the presence of its AIS tech for image stabilisation, apart from a single-LED flash. On the front, the smartphone bears a triple camera setup, if one counts the 3D Face Unlock sensors, with a 16-megapixel primary sensor featuring an f/2.0 aperture, and a 2-megapixel + 2-megapixel combo with an f/2.4 aperture for 3D Face Unlock features.
