    HONOR Magic V2: Reshaping foldable technology

    Measuring 9.9mm when folded, the HONOR Magic V2 has been dubbed as the “first inward foldable smartphone to usher in the mm era”, and weighing in at 231g – it has proven to be at least 10g lighter than similar offerings from competitors.

    A major concern consumers face when looking for a foldable device is the visible seam, but HONOR has addressed this issue by developing a first-of-its-kind Super-light Titanium Hinge– built with SGS-certified HONOR proprietary steel – providing an almost invisible hinge that can withstand more than 400,000 folds during its lifespan, or 100 folds a day, ensuring longevity and durability of the device for up to 10 years.

    The HONOR Magic V2 comes equipped with an industry-leading 5000mAh HONOR Dual Silicon-Carbon Battery, which sits underneath both screens, for enhanced battery and device performance – providing approximately 19 – 24 hours of uninterrupted entertainment on a single charge. It also includes a 66W supercharger for rapid charging – a great feature for load shedding woes. 

    But it’s not only the hardware that’s impressive – the HONOR Magic V2 houses the Android 13-based MagicOS 7.2 software – ensuring top-notch performance during any task – whether its personal or work-related. It also supports Google Mobile Services (GMS) – meaning everything from Google Play Store to Gmail is available on this foldable device. 

    Always keeping the end-user at the forefront – the HONOR Magic V2 has been designed with human-centric display innovations. To ensure maximum eye comfort, the device features Risk-Free Dimming Dual Display which helps alleviate eye fatigue by reducing the amount of blue light exposure through AI features such as Dynamic Dimming and Circadian Night Display.

    Without taking away from the display, the foldable also comes with OLED LTPO display which supports an impressive 1.07 billion colours to ensure crystal clear visuals and colour accuracy.

    With privacy and security now becoming an even bigger topic amongst individuals – the HONOR Magic V2 provides a sense of safety with AI features such as Parallel Space – which allows the user to create different screens that are able to separate work and personal apps to provide a dual-phone experience on one device.

    HONOR Magic6 Pro: Platform-level AI capabilities like never before

    Providing more AI-driven features than its predecessor, the HONOR Magic6 Pro has been named the Ultimate Camera Smartphone with a Gold DXOMARK score of 158 points, while also claiming the top spots for Battery, Selfie capabilities, and Display. 

    Fitted with leading generative AI technology, the smart device was developed for those who want to fully immerse themselves in the digital age with platform-level AI first-hand. The Falcon Camera System is a another first-of-its-kind feature from the brand – featuring a 50MP Wide Camera, a 50MP Ultra-Wide Camera, and a 180MP Periscope Telephone Camera to provide high-quality images that could rival the best professional camera equipment. 

    The HONOR Magic6 Pro also comes with the latest HONOR MagicOS 8.0 based on Android 14, ensuring unparalleled user experience with all the perks.

    This advanced operating system introduces a myriad of upgraded and personalised features, ushering users into a realm of heightened intelligence, such as the innovative AI feature Magic Portal, which makes daily tasks even easier by offering shortcut recommendations – this allows the user to navigate different apps at a quicker pace with just one click for efficient multitasking. 

    To enable Magic Portal, a simple click and hold on text, images or files and dragging them to the edge of the screen will trigger responses such as opening the on-board navigation, Google search, shopping sites, or social media for immediate sharing.

    Taking in the need for privacy as well, the Magic6 Pro comes equipped with AI Privacy Call 3.0– which intelligently adjusts and adapts the volume of calls to ensure the conversation cannot be heard by anyone other than the receiver.

    Fitted with a 5600mAh HONOR Dual Silicon-Carbon Battery for all-day performance – which also comes with 66W supercharger like the Magic V2, a NanoCrystal Shield that is able to withstand even the harshest of drops, and enhanced performance power thanks to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip – the Magic6 Pro is leading the pack with generative AI technology. 

    General Manager of HONOR Technologies Africa, Fred Zhou, commented on the Magic Series saying, “HONOR is extremely excited to launch the Magic Series to the public. Globally, these devices have gained so much recognition by causing a disruption in the smartphone realm with never-before-seen features and capabilities. South Africans have been eagerly awaiting to Experience the Magic, and we can proudly say we’ve created a flagship that is going to do just that.”
