Last month, Honor announced its latest smartphone — Honor Magic 2, the successor of the Honor Magic launched in 2016. The Magic 2 was much-awaited because of its sliding mechanism design that enables the company to offer a higher screen-to-body ratio.
After announcing the phone in October, the company made the device available for purchase in China on 6th November through online as well as offline channels. Now, the company has announced through Weibo that the phone has been sold out.
In the photos shared by the company, we can see that people lined up at Honor‘s Experience Stores across China to purchase the Honor Magic 2 smartphone. The company also announced that it achieved very good sales number for the online sale but haven’t revealed those numbers. Further, Honor added that it won the title of the best sales for a new product among 4,000 other products.
In terms of design, the phone has a sliding screen that adopts five tracks to offer sturdiness over time along with an unmatched sliding experience. The Honor Magic 2 flaunts a 6.39-inch Full HD AMOLED display bearing a screen resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
Under the hood, the device packs the company’s own Kirin 980 CPU ARM Cortex A76 octa-core processor, which is paired with Mali-G76 MP10 GPU. The handset packs either 6GB or 8GB RAM along with 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.
The smartphone boasts a triple rear camera setup, consisting of a 16MP f/1.8 RGB sensor, a 24MP f/1.8 Monochrome sensor, and a 16MP super wide-angle f/2.2 sensor. The cameras are packed with tons of features such as scene recognition (more than 1500 scenes), HDR wide-angle photography with night mode, AIS, AR mode, studio level 3D portrait mode and even 480fps slow-motion recording.
On the front side, the phone comes equipped with a 16MP f/2.0 camera and two 2MP f/2.4 depth-sensing camera sensors. There’s also an IR 3D face unlock system, in case you don’t want to use the in-display fingerprint scanner.
The phone runs on Honor’s Magic UI 2.0 which is based on Android Pie operating system. The phone also comes with an advanced AI Assistant called YOYO that packs tons of features, including a feature similar to Google’s Duplex. It is fuelled by a 3,400mAh battery with 40W fast charging support that is dubbed as Magic Charge.
