Honor Magic 2, the flagship bezel-less smartphone from Huawei‘s e-brand, will be officially announced on October 31. The smartphone, which has been part of multiple leaks so far, has now been teased via official images as well. The Chinese smartphone maker has now released a bunch of photos and a video shedding more light on its flagship device.

The Magic 2’s biggest feature will be the sliding mechanism that allows for a full screen experience without a notch. While Oppo and Vivo are using motorized components to achieve full screen design, Honor is being smart to bring back the slider design that we have seen on phones from Nokia nearly a decade back. These new official images show how Honor is adopting the well received design language seen with the Huawei P20 Pro early this year.

The Honor Magic 2 has a triple camera setup stacked in the same fashion as the one seen on Huawei P20 Pro. The first two sensors are stacked together in a protruding fashion while the third sensor sits plush with the metal frame. It is also likely to come in number of colors complete with gradient finish that Huawei has forced other OEMs to copy as well.

The leaks so far suggest that Honor Magic 2 will feature a 6.4-inch display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, translating to 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It will be powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 980 SoC, making it the fifth device after Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20X and Porsche Design Mate 20 RS to feature that chipset. There are also rumors of Honor offering the Magic 2 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage.

As far as camera is concerned, the Honor Magic 2 could feature a combination of 16-megapixel + 16-megapixel + 24-megapixel triple camera setup. The sliding camera mechanism will house the 16-megapixel selfie camera and could be paired with depth sensors for facial recognition. It is expected to be backed by a 3,400mAh battery and is likely to be available in blue and purple gradient finish.
