Huawei sub-brand Honor‘s sliding phone, the Honor Magic 2 was launched in October last year and was considered one of the uniquely designed smartphones of the year. It’s sliding mechanism allowed the smartphone to integrate a triple front camera setup without having to cut down on the display size and increased bezels. It came with top of the line specifications which included a Kirin HiSilicon 980 SoC with 6GB and 8GB options for RAM. Also Read - Honor no more a part of Huawei, will continue business as usual

And now, according to a post on Weibo, the company is preparing to launch a “3D” version of the Honor Magic 2 which had been teased during the event launching the main phone. The company has proposed that the new 3D version of the device will come with a structured light 3D scanner for the front of the camera alongside the already present 16 megapixel main camera and two 2 megapixel depth sensor cameras. The job of the 3D scanner would be to scan as many as 10,000 points of the user’s face and work even in the dark to make the facial recognition software more secure. This will make it secure enough to use with the likes of payment apps like AliPay in China. Also Read - Honor 10X Lite launched globally: Specs, price, and other details to know
