Honor has proudly announced today that it’s partnering with game developer Gameloft to bring a special version of Asphalt 9: Legends to the Porsche Design Magic V2 RSR. This will run at 120fps and is “better adapted to the large screens on foldable smartphones”, of which the Magic V2 RSR is one.

The partnership will deliver “an unparalleled experience unlike anything seen before, advancing the foldable ecosystem through mutual innovation”, Honor boldly states in its official press release on the matter. Fluid visuals and ultra-fast response times are provided on the large folding screen by “reconstructing the game rendering process, using shader replacement technology, reimagining physical textures with GPU-based edge reconstruction technology and integrating the graphics rendering capabilities of foldable devices with AI”.

Fei Fang, President of Honor’s Product Line, said:

Honor continues to establish itself as a key player in the foldable ecosystem through its ongoing commitment to evolving and retaining its competitive edge through openness and collaboration. Our newest collaboration with Gameloft to optimize gaming on the Porsche Design Honor Magic V2 RSR is a testament to our commitment to creating the best foldable user experience for Honor device users. By pursuing collaborations that advance hardware and software integration for foldable devices, Honor aims to create a mutually beneficial ecosystem that provides consumers with the most cutting-edge technology.

Henry Pan, Vice President of Global Business Development OEM at Gameloft said:

Past precedent has shown that pursuing a thin and light design for foldable smartphones often led to sacrificing its technological performance and graphic capacity, leading to a gap in the market to create more advanced gaming experiences. Our collaboration with Honor combines our expertise in game development on mobile devices with Honor’s experience in the seamless integration of software and hardware in foldable devices to deliver industry-leading immersion with Asphalt 9: Legends for global gamers.
