  • Several Chinese celebrities got hands-on time with the upcoming Honor Magic 2.
  • The images show off a slider mechanism, three rear cameras, and a color gradient.
  • The Magic 2 also has a TENAA listing, which revealed flagship-level hardware.
Thankfully, the Magic 2’s listing on TENAA shows us that the phone is not just about its looks. The Magic 2 sports a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and almost a 100 percent screen-to-body ratio, thanks to the lack of a notch and the front camera hidden in the slider mechanism. The phone might also feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, since there is no such sensor around back or below the display.

Under the hood, the Magic 2 features Huawei’s new Kirin 980 chipset, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 3,400mAh battery. The battery size might be average, but the phone reportedly comes with a 40W charger that debuted alongside the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Lastly, the Magic 2 runs EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9 Pie.
