Official photos show Honor Magic 2’s slide-out camera, colorful back

At an event in August, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor surprisingly announced a phone called the Magic 2. The phone has slim bezels and no notch on top, thanks to a slide-out selfie camera. 

Back then, we were told the phone would rock Huawei’s latest Kirin 980 chip and fast charging, but we didn’t really get a very good look at the device. 

Now, the company has shared official images which reveal, well, almost the entire phone. 

Up close, we see the selfie camera, the sensors and the speaker all lodged into the phone’s slide-out top. We still don’t know how, exactly, the sliding mechanism will work; in the original announcement, we saw it opened manually, but perhaps that was just a prototype. Oppo’s Find X phone has a similar slide-out selfie camera, but it’s closed and opened automatically. 

On the back, Honor Magic 2 is a dead-ringer for Huawei’s P20 Pro, with a triple rear camera and a gradient color. Two colors are shown; a pink-to-purple and a blue-to-light-blue gradient. Note the absence of a fingerprint sensor; it’s likely of the under-the-display variety which is becoming commonplace these days (Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro has it, for example.)

We also see bits and pieces of the phone’s packaging, if you care about that sort of thing. Notably, none of the photos show the phone’s bottom; presumably because it has a chin. Many phone manufacturers have copied Apple’s iPhone X and XS and their notch, but no phone on the market has a screen that goes all the way down the way it does on Apple’s flagships. It’s fair to assume that Honor Magic 2 will have a bit of a chin as well. 

There still aren’t any details on Honor Magic 2’s pricing. The specs haven’t officially been announced but leaks revealed that it’ll have a 6.4-inch OLED screen, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The phone will be officially announced on October 31.
