Honor shows off the Magic V2’s ability to run apps in parallel


What you need to know

  • Austin Evans playtests Honor’s “parallel space” app on the Magic V2 with two copies of the same Android game.
  • Running two copies of the game was fairly smooth (60fps), and parallel space will transfer the apps onto its external display if the Magic V2 is closed.
  • Parallel space will work with “most” apps, and users will likely have better optimization for apps less intensive.

Some attention is being paid to Honor’s software packed into its latest foldable launch which is surprisingly quite powerful. YouTuber Austin Evans showed off the company’s latest device, the Magic V2, and an app called “parallel space.” Opening this app brings users into a separate space on their phone, allowing users to run a “separate copy of most apps.”

In Evans’ test, he was able to open one copy of League of Legends Wild Rift and then activate split-screen mode. This mode creates a quick menu on the bottom half of his Magic V2 with suggested apps to open, however, he selects the same game.
