Honor Magic 2 to go official on October 31, company confirms
After initially teasing the Honor Magic 2 towards the end of August at IFA 2018, today Honor’s Chinese website has confirmed that an announcement will be taking place in China on October 31.
Improving vastly upon its predecessor, the smartphone will introduce a new all-screen design that boasts just one small bezel towards the bottom of the panel and an in-display fingerprint scanner. This look is achieved thanks to a new sliding mechanism that allows the selfie camera and any other front-facing sensors to pop out from the top of the device, mimicking the design of the Oppo Find X.
Internally, the smartphone will follow in the footsteps of the upcoming Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, and Mate 20X by boasting Huawei’s latest Kirin 980 processor which is based on the new 7nm process. Also, support for SuperCharge 2.0 is to be expected, something that could allow up to 70% of charge in just 30 minutes.
Unsurprisingly, pricing details are yet to be announced by Honor. However, reports have previously suggested a price tag of around $600 or slightly higher is extremely likely. This would be pushing the limits for Honor – the company is known for its range of low-cost devices – but it’s understandable considering the technology that is present within the smartphone. Moreover, it still represents a relatively low price in comparison to competing offerings.
