The much-rumored Honor Magic 2 smartphone will be launched tomorrow in China. The handset will be sporting a manual slider design, and it will be powered by the 7nm Kirin 980 chipset that is present under the hood of the recently announced Huawei Mate 20 series.

With less than a day to the launch, the Master Lu benchmarks listing of the Honor Magic 2 has surfaced online that corroborates the key specs that have already leaked through an earlier TENAA listing. As seen in the image, the Master Lu listing belongs to Honor Magic 2 that has a model number of TNY-AL00. The 8GB RAM variant of the smartphone has been benchmarked. The very same variant was spotted on Geekbench recently, which is powered by a 2.6GHz Kirin 980 SoC.

The display of the Magic 2 carries support for Full HD+ resolution of 2340×1080 pixels. The smartphone has managed to salvage a score of 307,101 on Master Lu, which classifies it as a powerful flagship phone.

Previous reports have revealed that the Honor Magic 2 will be delivering a very high screen-to-body ratio since it will be sporting a manual slider design. The Magic 2 will be Honor’s first smartphone to feature an in-screen fingerprint reader. It will run Android 9 Pie OS out-of-the-box. The handset will be drawing power from a 3,400mAh battery that is expected to carry support for 40W fast charging.
