Huawei’s subsidiary Honor has announced that it is working on a second-generation Honor Magic phone called the Honor Magic 2. The phone was teased by y Honor president George Zhao briefly during his IFA 2018 keynote which showed off the gorgeous full-view front as well as its unique slide-out front camera module.
The phone will have a nearly 100 percent screen-to-body ratio, however, since only a glimpse of the phone was captured during the show off at the IFA press conference it is difficult to see how it looks exactly.
The Honor Magic 2 is powered by the upcoming Kirin 980 processor, though he didn’t reveal the launch date of the phone. The device is the successor to the Honor Magic which was launched in 2016 with AI tech. The company’s upcoming Honor Magic 2 will come with even more AI features and could also house a new virtual assistant called Yoyo.
Reports state that Honor president George Zhao confirmed in an interview that the Magic 2's launch is at least two months away, however they have posted teasers about the phone as “a competitor” had heard about the design. Just a few hours after Honor’s announcement, Xiaomi’s president has posted a render of the company’s upcoming Mi Mix 3 flagship which features a similar sliding camera design.
The Honor Magic 2 will have a stylish design and looks a lot like the Oppo Find X. The front of the phone has all screen and no bezels. Zhao did not reveal the rear of the Honor Magic 2 in the teaser. More details about the upcoming phone are expected to be revealed soon!
