Honor brand , a subsidiary of Huawei, is set to launch its new flagship, Magic 2 . Some leaks found on the web show various details about the device, including the design, specifications and YoYo Artificial Intelligence system .
The body of the device on the back is identical to the P20 Pro , bringing triple cameras to fully exploit the photographic quality delivered by LEICA lenses . Unlike the way that many manufacturers have done by adopting the notch in drop to keep the front camera in the smartphone without influencing the thickness, Honor decided to go along the path traced by Oppo Find X and apply a sliding front camera in the cell phone.
This ends up being beneficial for the use of the display , however it becomes worrying because of the mechanism implemented to carry out this process, which will be continuous. In addition to the camera, this sliding is used to install the sound output to answer calls, which can even triple the movement of this attachment of the Magic 2 body.
According to rumors, Honor Magic 2’s personal assistant will be called YoYo , but there are still no details about the depth of knowledge applied in Artificial Intelligence of this system, which can perform simple functions such as answering basic questions about climate, traffic, and the like, or be further deepened and enable the execution of more robust commands, equating to Siri and Google Assistant.
One of the biggest surprises of this device is the hardware configurations that it can bring. Counting on the latest chipset to be used in the Huawei and Honor devices, the Kirin 980, the performance of this smartphone will be robust, especially for those who are hardcore users. With 8 GB of RAM, any game or heavier program will hardly crash on that device.
The cameras of the device do not want to be compared to competitors in this category, because it has two lenses of 16 MP and one of 24 MP in the back, and the front comes with a camera for selfies of 16 MP. Face-to-face, Honor applied 2 TOF sensors to improve the accuracy of the facial reading performed for screen unlocking.
