HONOR launches the Magic V2 RSR in collaboration with Porsche Design with Shape Memory Alloy OIS

Cambridge Mechatronics Ltd (CML) is pleased to share news of the HONOR Magic V2 RSR launch, which uses the same OIS enabled camera system as the HONOR Magic V2.

The HONOR Magic V2 RSR is the result of a strategic partnership between HONOR and Porsche Design. During the launch event on 11th January, HONOR CEO Mr George Zhao and Porsche Lifestyle Group Chairman of the Board, Mr Stefan Buescher, highlighted the inspiration for developing this premium handset.

The iconic Porsche car fly line has been incorporated into the handset body design, providing easier grip functionality for the user. The body uses fibre glass with the classic Porsche grey colour scheme to replicate the look and texture from the sports car. Additionally, by using second-generation Honor Anti-scratch NanoCrystalshield technology, scratch resistance and drop test ratings have been enhanced by 10x.

As with the HONOR Magic V2, the phone is 9.9mm thick in its folded state; the thinnest inward foldable phone on the market today. The Magic V2 RSR has a triple camera configuration with the 50MP f/1.9 main camera featuring OIS in the main camera. The Magic V2 also sports a 50MP f/2.0 ultrawide camera and a 20MP f/2.4 2.5x optical zoom telephoto camera with OIS.

Introducing Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) OIS into the main camera enables improved image quality, especially in low light conditions. SMA actuator technology is well suited for folded handsets due to its compact size, low z-height and lack of electromagnetic interference (EMI), especially critical when magnetic technology is used in the handset.

The 4-wire SMA Lens Shift OIS actuator technology from Cambridge Mechatronics Ltd is a mature product design and has shipped in over 45 million handsets to date. For more details about Cambridge Mechatronics and SMA technology, please GET IN TOUCH.
