As reported earlier the Chinese giant Honor wraps off the cover from an updated variant of Magic 2 flagship. The new flagship comes with refreshed hardware and internals. The original Magic 2 has triple front-facing cameras including primary 16MP snapper and two 2MP sensors. One of the sensors was meant for depth-sensing whereas the third sensor was not of much use.
The biggest upgrade with the Magic 2 3D is the new 3D structured light camera sensor on the front which replaces one of the 2MP sensors. The new setup provides better facial recognition and also improves the depth-sensing in both stable and low light conditions. The advance facial recognition can also be utilized to authenticate AliPay transactions.
To make sure the device can be used to the fullest the Magic 2 3D comes with a graphene-based heat pipe. The heat dissipating pipe ensures the device remains cool even on peak performance hefty usage. The Kirin 980 SoC is powering the phone with 8GB RAM and built-in native storage is 512GB. Other hardware specs remain similar to the original model.
