Honor Magic 2 Full Specification and Price: Slider Phone With 6 Cameras


Huawei has announced Honor Magic 2 smartphone. This the latest flagship from Huawei. It Boasts of six camera (three front-facing, three on the back). It is powered by the Kirin 980 chipset and impressively fast 40W charging.

Huawei was always about fast-charging, and the Magic 2 comes with 40W capabilities (10V/4A). It is called Magic Charge, and Honor claims it can charge 50% of the 3,400 mAh power cell in 15 minutes and reach 85% in the next quarter hour. It uses the USB-C port that doubles as an audio port since there is no 3.5 mm jack.

The display panel is a 6.4-inch 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, but Honor skipped on the microSD slot.

The camera department is fascinating. There is a main 16 MP snapper, 24 MP Black & White monochrome sensor, and a 16 MP ultra wide-angle camera. The front setup is also unorthodox – the 16 MP selfie shooter is accompanied by two 2 MP depth sensors. There is an under-display fingerprint scanner for all the security.
