During its press event at IFA, Honor unveiled its next flagship smartphone — the Honor Magic 2.
This "announcement" was really more of a tease than anything else, but even so, it would appear that Honor's got something exciting up its sleeves.
Following up on the first Honor Magic that was released in 2016, the Magic 2 features a nearly bezel-less display with no notch in sight. Similar to the Oppo Find X from earlier this year, the Honor Magic 2 has a slide-up design that houses its cameras and allows for its "nearly 100% screen-to-body ratio."
Honor's calling this its "intelligent Magic Slide system", and once it's activated, you'll have access to some sort of AI features — a big theme that was present with the first Magic.
It's been confirmed that the Honor Magic 2 supports 40W charging and is the first Honor phone to be powered by the Kirin 980 processor, but aside from those two tidbits, everything else about the phone is still up in the air — including pricing and availability info.
The first Honor Magic was focused on the Chinese market and never came to the U.S., so don't get your hopes up just yet about owning the phone yourself.
