Honor Magic 2 teased with slide-out camera mechanism & Kirin 980
In December 2016, the Honor Magic was launched by the company with stunning design and specifications. We expected a successor in 2017 but didn’t get any. Today, at the IFA Berlin, Honor teased the Magic 2 with an incredible design and high-end specifications. The phone has the same design language as the Oppo Find X but takes it to a next level.
George Zhao, the President of Honor, announced that the Honor Magic 2 would be launched in coming months with a slide-out camera mechanism. This is the same thing as on the Oppo Find X. So, there is no notch whatsoever and looking at the teaser, it looks like the phone is going to feature the highest screen-to-body ratio. Yes, there is no chin or notch and the front is all screen.
But wait! That’ not it. Honor also announced that the phone would launch with an upgraded Magic Charging that can charge the battery at an impressive 40W power. Finally, the company confirmed that the Honor Magic 2 would launch with the Kirin 980 processor.
There is no information on the exact pricing, but we don’t think that Magic 2 will launch before the Mate 20 series. So, expect the launch to happen in December, just like the first generation Honor Magic.
