Honor Magic 2 3D Announced With Graphene Cooling Tech

If Honor Magic 2 wasn’t cool enough for you, there’s a better one coming. The Honor Magic 2 3D features the same design but with a few key specifications that make it better than the original.

As the name implies, this one has a 3D sensor on board.

Design and Display

Now before you point out that it’s the exact same image we used for the Honor Magic 2, there’s a good reason for it. The design of the Honor Magic 2 and Honor Magic 2 3D is exactly the same, with a glass sandwich build with an aluminum frame.

Being the only other manual slider smartphone to hit the market with the Mi Mix 3, the Honor Magic 2 features a 6.4-inch OLED display with a 91.5% screen to body ratio (19:9 aspect ratio), at Full HD+ (2340 x 1080) resolution.

The phone comes with a 3D camera on the front (visible when you slide the phone down) for 3D face unlock and other features. There’s also an under-display fingerprint reader if you don’t want to slide the phone every time to unlock it.

No headphone jack on this one, unfortunately.

Internals and Storage

Featuring Huawei’s best, the Honor Magic 2 is powered by a 7nm Kirin 980 processor with a graphene heat pipe for better heat dissipation. This will enable the Honor Magic 2 3D to maintain its maximum performance for longer compared to the regular Honor Magic 2.

There’s 8 GB of RAM onboard, with 512GB of internal storage. No microSD card slot, for obvious reasons.

It runs on EMUI on top of Android 9.0 Pie.


The back of the Honor Magic 2 3D features a triple camera setup, with a 16MP f/1.8 RGB sensor, a 24MP f/1.8 B&W (monochrome) camera, and a 16MP super wide-angle f/2.2 lens.

While on the front, the phone has a 16 MP main sensor, a 2MP depth sensor and a 3D structured light camera for advanced face unlock features and better depth mapping.

Battery Life and Charging

Powering the flagship phone is a 3,400 mAh battery with 40W Magic Charge. You can charge it up to 50% in just 15 minutes and up to 85% in 30 minutes.

Price and Availability

As there’s just one storage variant of the Honor Magic 2 3D, it’ll come at a price of CNY 5,799 ($864) or a little over Rs. 120,000. It will only be available in China unless the company announces otherwise.
