As the story goes, the newly announced Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is now not the only slider full-screen phone in the market. There is another option that has just been launched yesterday in the form of Honor Magic 2 although the name of the phone was first revealed at IFA 2018 earlier this year.
Powered by the new Kirin 980 processor that is also being used on the Huawei Mate 20 series family, the Magic 2 is equipped with a 6.39-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display together with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Just like on the Mi Mix 3, sliding the front half of the phone downwards would reveal its selfie camera.
Here is where things seemed to be rather a little bit extreme: Honor has actually equipped the Magic 2 with three front cameras that involved a 16MP sensor with a f/2.0 lens as the main camera. As for the other two cameras, they consist of two 2MP f/2.4 cameras which seemed to be a rather odd choice by Honor.
On the back of the phone, there are also another three cameras which were arranged in a similar manner as per Huawei P20 Pro. Among them is a 16MP f/1.8 camera alongside a 24MP f/1.8 monochrome and 16MP f/2.2 super wide-angle cameras. Completing its general specifications is a 3500mAh battery that also supports 40W fast charge technology which allows the phone to be fully charged from 0% in less than an hour.
Price-wise, the Magic 2 with 6GB/128GB configurations will be made available later this month for CNY 3799 (about RM 2282) while the models with 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB setup will go for CNY 4299 (~RM 2582) and CNY 4799 (~RM 2882) respectively.
The highest-end model which includes graphene cooling, 3D front camera, 8GB RAM, and 512GB storage will go on sale for CNY 5799 (~RM 3483) this December. For now, Honor has yet to reveal any details regarding the availability of Honor Magic 2 in Malaysia. We’ll keep you posted once we hear more from the company.
