Honor Magic 2 slides into view with six cameras and a notch-killing design

The Honor Magic 2 will be available in three gradient colours – Red, Blue and Black – and cost Chinese ¥3799 for the 6GB/128GB version, ¥4299 for an 8GB/256GB configuration, and ¥4799 for the top-end 8GB/256GB mode

The Honor Magic 2 has been officially revealed in China, alongside the Huawei sub-brand’s first smartwatch, the Honor Watch.

As expected, the Honor Magic 2’s main selling point is a sliding mechanism that conceals the handset’s front camera ‘notch’ when closed and gives its 6.39-inch AMOLED display (2340 x 1080 pixels) a nearly 100% screen-to-body ratio.

Speaking of cameras, there’s a lot of them on the Magic 2: no less than six, in fact. The aforementioned front ‘selfie cam’ setup is comprised of a 16-megapixel primary lens and a pair of supporting 2-megapixel lenses.

On the rear of the device, there’s another, more powerful triple-camera configuration that pairs a 24-megapixel monochrome lens with a 16-megapixel colour lens and tops it all off with a 16-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens. Both are intriguing layouts, to say the least.

Under the hood, there’s a top-of-the-line Kirin 980 SoC backed by 6GB of 8GB of RAM, and the option of either 128GB or 256GB of on-board storage, while keeping things running is a 3400mAh battery capable of 40W ‘SuperCharge’ fast charging, but not wireless charging.

There’s no room for a 3.5mm headphone jack, either, as the Honor Magic 2 is fitted with just a USB-C port, but there is a new Honor accessory to help you get around this in the form of the wireless FlyPods Pro earbuds.

Security is handled primarily by an in-display fingerprint scanner, while Honor’s new Yoyo digital assistant makes its debut on the software side of things: Honor’s Magic UI 2.0 sitting on top of Android 9 Pie.

The Honor Magic 2 will be available in three gradient colours – Red, Blue and Black – and cost Chinese ¥3799 for the 6GB/128GB version, ¥4299 for an 8GB/256GB configuration, and ¥4799 for the top-end 8GB/256GB model. That’s about £425-£535 depending on which version you opt for, but while pre-orders have started in China ahead of a November 6 release date, there’s no word on UK availability at present.

Honor Magic 2 – Price, Specifications & Release Date

At IFA 2018, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor unveiled the new flagship smartphone with the name Huawei Honor Magic 2. After the huge success of the first-generation Honor Magic that was launched in 2016, here is a Huawei Honor Magic 2 with full view display, no notch, and slide-out front camera. With almost similar design as the Oppo Find X, the Honor is about to do some sort of magic with this series of smartphone. While at the event, it has released a short teaser video with the upcoming Honor smartphone in action. Moreover, this will be the first Honor smartphone with Kirin 980 processor. What’s more in the Huawei Honor Magic 2? Let us find out more details about the latest Honor smartphone.

Honor Magic 2 Release Date

The Huawei Honor Magic 2 stole off the show with its new “Magic Slide” feature. At the event, the company didn’t reveal much about the Huawei Honor Magic 2 release date and its availability in the international market. Recently, Huawei even introduced the new Honor Play which is a gaming phone as holds almost the same display screen as Huawei Honor 10. Now that Huawei Honor Magic 2 is made official, we expect its launch at sometime in December 2018. Here are some of the Honor Play hidden features that you should know.

Honor Magic 2 Design & Display

The successor of the original Huawei Honor Magic that was teased at the popular IFA show hints towards some of the key features. One of the major highlights is Honor Magic 2 design. It now has a full-view display with no notches and since they included the slide out front camera, the display doesn’t even take space for front camera sensor. With the 100% body to screen ratio, the device almost looks like Oppo Find X. In the teaser video, the company didn’t specify anything about the rear end of the handset, neither even showed the display screen size. However, we assume the device to have at least dual rear camera setup that will be placed on the slider or may also have it directly on the device. Probably, by looking at the size of the slider, we assume all cameras to reside in that.

Honor Magic 2 Specifications

As for the Honor Magic 2 internal specifications, firstly this will be the first Honor smartphone to be powered by HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor. This is known to render great performance than its predecessors and also features advanced AI capabilities. All this would make it the smartest AI device ever. Apart from this, the Huawei Honor Magic 2 is likely to get the support of 40W magic charge technology for the maximum charging power. With 15 layers of protection embedded into the device, you can be sure to have enough safety level. The remaining Honor Magic 2 specifications remain confidential and we could probably get the details only after its official launch. Irrespective of the design and specifications included, it is good to see something new and innovative from the Huawei smartphones.

Honor Magic 2 Price

Huawei’s Honor went a bit innovative and different this time with the new Honor Magic 2. Well! We are unsure if this would be a great success or not as the original Honor Magic. However, it is quite good to see a bezel-less display screen with the fastest processor and advanced charging technology from the Chinese company. Considering all the innovative features, the Honor Magic 2 price in UAE will definitely be a bit higher than its predecessor. In fact, it is too early to predict the price of the upcoming Honor smartphone. We just need to stretch ourselves until the device is officially out.
