Last October, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has unveiled its first slider mechanism phone – the Honor Magic 2. After the launch, the company had promised another variant of the Honor Magic 2, which comes with a 3D scanner. As promised, Honor had launched its 3D scanner variant Magic 2 today in China.
The new Honor Magic 2 comes with 3D bionic sensitization technology that can track upto 10,000 facial points, which are further utilized for facial recognition authentication. Similar to Apple’s Face ID and Huawei’s premium models Face unlock, the 3D scanner on the Honor Magic 2 also works in the darker environments. This has been achieved on the new variant of the Honor Magic 2 by replacing one of the 2MP sensors on the front with a more practical 3D structured light camera. This new scanning technology can further be utilized in Honor’s proprietary payments gateway system Alipay as well.
Alongside the 3D scanner, the Honor Magic 2 is also equipped with a graphene-based heat pipe cooling system for smoother gaming experience and also comes with additional storage options that include 8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. These are the noticeable differences of the new variant compared to the earlier released Honor Magic 2. Apart from these changes the Magic 2 3D is powered by the Kirin 980 SoC and runs on the latest Android 9.0 Pie based Magic UI 2.0. The phone features a triple rear camera setup (16MP+16MP+24MP) and triple front-facing cameras (16MP+2MP+2MP).
The new Honor Magic 2 3D is currently for sale in China, and global release of this variant is yet to be known. As for the pricing it comes as CNY 5,799 (approx. Rs 61,000).
