Official Honor Magic 2 photos show notch-killing slider and psychedelic gradients

New, 38 comments

The Honor Magic 2 won’t be formally announced for a week, but that isn’t stopping the Huawei sub-brand from releasing a bunch of photos and video of the new flagship device. As we knew, the Magic 2 features a sliding mechanism that hides the front-facing cameras behind the screen, averting the need for a display notch in similar fashion to high-end phones from Chinese compatriots like Oppo and Vivo.

The official pictures also reveal the device’s rear design, which looks extremely similar to the Huawei P20 Pro — it has the same triple-camera setup and comes in a couple of equally iridescent colorways. From leaks, we’re expecting the Magic 2 to have a 6.39-inch 2340 x 1080 OLED display, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and Huawei’s new Kirin 980 processor.

Stay tuned for full details on the Honor Magic 2 when it’s officially announced on October 31st — one day after Apple’s event and two days after OnePlus’. It’s going to be a big week for shiny new objects.
