Press renders of Honor’s upcoming smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor and slide-out camera, the Honor Magic 2, which is set to launch later this month have surfaced. The smartphone is set to launch on October 31. The leaked renders give us a look at the phone design as well as color options.
The front of the device has an almost bezel-less display while the volume rocker and the power button are on the right side of the frame of the device. The rear panel of the smartphone has three cameras in the setup of two cameras with the flash in a vertical manner and another camera in a single setup below it. The images by Android Pure show three colors, Blue, Red and Silver. The front camera and the sensors slide out as part of the back panel.
Honor Magic 2: Specifications and Expected Price
Honor Magic was one of the most noteworthy devices from Huawei’s online-only brand, but it was not made available outside China. With Honor Magic 2, the Chinese company might have global ambitions, and could be preparing to launch around the world. The Honor Magic 2 will join Vivo NEX and Oppo Find X as smartphones with mechanical camera setup.
In terms of specifications, the Honor Magic 2 is rumored to feature a 6-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2880×1440 pixels. It would be safe to assume that Honor will go with Full HD+ panel, and not Quad HD+ like Huawei P20 Pro. A Full HD+ panel with notch at the top should allow for 19:9 aspect ratio, and over 95 percent screen-to-body ratio. At IFA 2018, Huawei announced Kirin 980, its newest flagship processor based on 7nm process and Honor Magic 2 should get this latest chipset.
It is expected to feature dual 12-megapixel camera setup on the back for imaging, and a 24-megapixel camera at the front for selfies. It is expected to come bundled with a new fast charger with a maximum power delivery of 20-24 watts. Huawei has designed its own fast charge technology, and there is a possibility that Honor Magic 2 will support fast wireless charging.
The Honor Magic 2 is also rumored to come standard with 6GB of RAM, and 64GB internal storage. The smartphone is expected to be backed by a 3,300mAh battery, and will run EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9 Pie. The Honor Magic 2 could be priced around RMB 3,999 (around Rs 40,000) when it goes on sale.

At that price, Honor Magic 2 will be the most premium smartphone that also features a futuristic design but there is also a possibility of the device being a bit more expensive.
