Honor teams up with Gameloft for optimised Asphalt 9 Legends on Porsche Design Honor Magic V2 RSR

Foldables are becoming more popular in the market though the unusual, typically squarish aspect ratios for the main folding displays of foldable phones often make many games look somewhat odd when played onscreen. 

To fully bring out its gaming capabilities, Honor has collaborated with Asphalt 9 Legends developer Gameloft to create an optimised version of the game that will have smoother graphics, an ultra smooth 120fps frame rate and a customised aspect ratio that will look gorgeous on the Porsche Design Honor Magic V2 RSR’s main foldable display.

According to Gameloft, they reconstructed the mobile game rendering process, used shader replacement technology and used GPU-based edge reconstruction technology to ensure fluid visuals and fast response times on the immersively large display.

The optimised version of the game will launch on the Google Play store for the Honor Magic V2 which is available nationwide in Malaysia as well as the Porsche Design Honor Magic V2 RSR this month.

There’s no official word as yet if these enhancements are specific only if you play it on the Honor Magic V2 and Porsche Design variant or if they will be available for other foldables from other brands but we’ll keep you posted.

At present, there’s no official pricing or launch date for the Porsche Design Honor Magic V2 RSR in Malaysia save for the fact that they’re opening up limited experiential slots at their Experience Stores by invitation but the Honor Magic V2 that we’ve reviewed is one of the best foldables that money can currently buy with its ultra svelte and light chassis.

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,” said Fei Fang, President of HONOR’s Product Line.

Our newest collaboration with Gameloft to optimise 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.”

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

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.” For more details stay tuned with us and on Honor’s official page here.
