In IFA Germany held at the end of August, ZHAO Ming as the head of HONOR announced that, HONOR Magic2, the 2nd generation concept Mobile, will be released with its unique push-slide cover newly defined as MagicSlide Full-screen. Then, will HONOR Magic2 attract more consumers with its own shining points? Today, we come to chat about the best HONOR Mobile phone HONOR Magic2 in details.
In view of push-slide full screen design, HONOR Magic2’s MagicSlide full-screen provides the access to the system by sliding down to trigger face recognition and get it unlocked. This process somewhat resembles the method of sliding into the mobile desktop popular in previous years, and the long lasting sense of ceremony origins from this source.
The magic point of MagicSlide full-screen concentrates on its screen ratio easily reaching beyond 90%. Screen size of 6.39 inches, screen material in AMOLED and resolution of 2340 x 1080, DCI-P3 color coverage of 108% and excellent displaying effects. What is more, the mobile could sense the variations of ambient lighting status and consumer usage scenarios, and automatically regulate the display mode of screen, including color range, contrast ratio and brightness, allowing for more pleasing visual experience.
In conclusion, the whole mobile adopts very exquisite designs of 3D curve body and big V radian, a legacy of tradition always maintained by those new mobiles. This gives it a nice feel of handheld.
In view of its colors, HONOR Magic2 adopts nanoscale vacuum coating techniques so as to accurately control the lighting’s transmission route on each layer of coatings through tiers of nanoscale waving texture films, since the light beams produce magic diffraction intervening and refraction, delivering gradient brilliant colors with outshining visual effects.
The slide cover design itself surely has an unavoidable problem, i.e. is its thickness and weight. HONOR Magic2 is well-controlled in its entirety with body thickness of 8.3mm and body weight of 206g. Comparing with Xiaomi MIX 3 with the thickness of 8.46mm and weight of 218g, HONOR Magic2 owns slight advantages.
HONOR Magic2 is available with 3D photosensitive version in 8GB+512GB storage, which supports 3D bionic photosensitive technology. This technology is self-developed and can accurately capture and recognize nearly ten thousands of characteristics of human faces in a deeper level by two infrared lens in parallel, both providing quicker speed and higher precision as well as reducing the face recognition’s dependency on the light beams to realize around-the-clock face recognition mechanism. This technology is high in its security property by supporting Alipay face payment and applicable for 3D Qmoji Proprietary Cute Images.
As new generation flagship chip, Kirin 980 shows a strong performance in the parameters of capacities that cannot be underestimated: 7mm manufacture processing; Cortex-A76-based CPU core; compared with the single-core from last generation versions, the capability is proven to up 75% and energy efficiency up 58%. Compared with last generation core, the capability of loaded Mali-G76 GPU is proved to up 46% and energy efficiency up 178%. Moreover, the newly updated GPU Turbo 2.0 adds more vigor to the new mobile’s gaming operation, making it even stronger and reliable.
HONOR Magic2 is the global first AI double triple-camera Mobile, with 16 megapixel front lens +2 megapixel infrared +2 megapixel infrared three-photography supporting 3D Beauty, and 24 megapixel +16 megapixel +16 megapixel back triple-camera. But different from the mainstream long and short focal length, HONOR Magic2 applies the advanced combo of high-pixel black and white + color + ultra-wide-angle lens.
Additionally, the combo with high-pixel black and white lenses could realize lossless dual-photography zoom, of which the mechanism is that the black and white camera firstly takes a high-resolution black and white image, and the range of image taken by the low-pixel color camera is subsequently intercepted from this image, and then a higher-quality zoom image is generated by merging with the color image via applicable software.
Let alone with its appearance interaction, but regarding systems, HONOR Magic2 proudly establishes an amazing artificial intelligence system based on its architecture, which HONOR entitles it with a pretty cool name, i.e. YOYO. Relying on the powerful AI computing power of Kirin 980 dual-core NPU, YOYO demonstrates quite a convincing performance in the fields like computer visual, natural semantic understanding, deep learning, decision-making system and recommendation system, etc.
The smart assistant YOYO has the ability to recognize its users. YOYO could actually sense its users by facial recognition and voiceprint recognition. Especially through voiceprint, the users’ voice is used as the only credential valid for unlocking Magic Live Smart Engine.
YOYO has outstanding ability in semantic recognition, through which only one or two sentences is required in command for complex operation procedures after you wake up YOYO to make it possible to implement the voice control on Mobile. Regarding visual functions, YOYO supports smart recognition, photography translation, camera shopping, calorie recognition, etc.
The Smart Visual Screen could recognize texts or image items by press them with two fingers, and further access to more convenient functions like content split, records, translation and shopping, etc. It is worthy to note that, HONOR Magic2 also supports simultaneous interpretation so that you could not only hear the voice of interpreter, but also view the converted text content.
AI adds a touch of humanity warmth to the cold technology, so does YOYO, who is developing in a way to serve as the private assistant of its users. Not exaggerate to say, YOYO has established mobile AI system prototype framework composed by vision, hearing, voice and touch, acting as a better paradigm for the development of mobile phone artificial intelligence system, although the functions are still a little preliminary.
HONOR Magic2 loads with 3500mAh battery, and judging from our 3H heavy load battery life test (1h video, 30 minutes microblog, 30 minutes social contact, 30 minutes gaming, 30 minutes E-books), its battery life seems pretty good, with the residual power only to 69% left, enable to endure middle/heavy loads for use within one day.
HONOR Magic1 also show great charging capability as one of its advantages. HONOR Magic2 maintains such legacy of tradition to support quick charging up to 40W and has passed Germany Rhine TUV Safety Certification 2.0, standing out to be fast and safe in charging performance. As per our tests, it only takes 30min to charge it from no power left to 81%, a terrifying performance indeed.
Generally speaking, HONOR Magic2 is a good product with lots of highlights like MagicSlide Full-screen, strong AI computing power, global 1st double triple-camera, mainstream biotic recognition mechanism, 40W fast charging, etc., all of which could function as the most stunning selling points. Plus it’s multifunctional NFC, double GPS, double SIM card VoLTE simultaneous data calls, 160Mhz 1.7Gbps high speed throughput WIFI and other benefits. All of them contribute to the esteemed flagship HONOR Magic2. Therefore, it is definitely worth buying.
