Honor Magic 2 Review Screen:
Thanks to the use of a still unusual form factor, which so far few can boast among manufacturers, the screen turned out to be almost frameless. “Bangs”, which many buyers do not like, are not here. The display is made using Super AMOLED technology and has a diagonal of 6.39 inches with a resolution of 2340 × 1080 pixels.
Interestingly, in terms of characteristics, this exactly the same screen installed in Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 – a direct competitor to Honor Magic 2. The display occupies almost 100% of the front area.The way, an optical fingerprint sensor also built into it. Thanks to it, the smartphone can be unlocked by touching the screen.

One of the main features of the Honor Magic 2 is its slider body. The manufacturer named this design Magic Slide. The pull-out mechanism is located between the screen and the back of the case. Pulling the display down, we get access to the front camera module.
The body itself made of two glass panels and a metal frame. By the way, despite all the fears of fans, a cover for such an unusual retractable design was nevertheless developed and it will be supplied with every smartphone. There are four body colors to choose from – gray, blue, and pink.
Processor, Memory, Communications:
The Honor Magic 2 powered by Huawei’s most powerful chipset, Kirin 980, the world’s first 7nm mobile processor. It has two Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.6 GHz, two of the same cores, but reduced to 1.92 GHz, and complemented by four energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores with a frequency of 1.8 GHz.
This chipset already “lit up” in mid-October on Huawei Mate 20/20 Pro. Graphics processing goes through the GPU Mali-G76. At the presentation, they talked about a double module of neural computing, which is designed to speed up data processing.
The device can have 6 or 8 GB of RAM. Permanent 128, 256 or 512 GB. Flagship and set of communications – LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4 + 5 GHz), Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and USB Type-C connector. By the way, there is a 3.5 mm audio jack in Honor Magic 2.
Honor Magic 2 can lay claim to the record for the number of cameras. The main unit consists of three modules. 16-megapixel standard sensor, 16-megapixel wide-angle module, and a 24-megapixel monochrome sensor.
In front, under the screen, there are also three cameras – a 16-megapixel sensor and two 2-megapixel modules for analyzing the depth of the field. Support for artificial intelligence functions declared to improve the resulting images. It’s too early to talk about the quality of the pictures, but the pictures presented at the presentation look juicy and deep.
