“The Honor Magic 2 alleged 3D render shows a Huawei P20 Pro like vertical camera module with AI Camera branding”
Huawei-owned brand Honor has announced that it will launch the Magic 2 smartphone in China on October 31st. The smartphone created quite a stir at IFA 2018 when the brand teased it at the event. The USP of the handset is the Find X-like sliding mechanism, albeit mechanical to ensure durability. Since then, the smartphone has been spotted in a teaser video and now 3D renders of the same have popped up on Weibo.
Honor Magic 2 leaked 3D renders
In the leaked renders, we can see Honor Magic 2 with glass build in two gradient colours – Black and Aurora, just like the Huawei P20 Pro (review). The similarity with the parent company’s flagship doesn’t end here as the design of the camera module is uncannily identical as well. The smartphone is seen sporting four cameras on the rear panel, with three of them inside an oblong casing and one standalone. Notably, the P20 Pro had two in the casing and one outside. While the exact details of the camera specifications are not known, we can expect them to be a regular, telephoto, wide angle and depth sensing sensors. In the image, we can also see the AI Camera branding, which means we can expect features like scene detection and low light detection.
Honor Magic 2 features and specifications
Previous rumours have suggested that the Honor Magic 2 will come with a 6-inch full-HD+ display with 1,440 x 2,880 pixels resolution. The sliding mechanism has allowed the brand to reduce the bezel size dramatically and as such the Magic 2 flaunts a screen-to-body ratio of 90.8 percent. At the IFA event, the brand’s President George Zhao confirmed that the smartphone will be powered by the 7nm flagship chipset – HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor. The chipset is further said to be backed by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It is also being speculated that apart from the face unlock module, the smartphone will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
As of now, no more details are available regarding the upcoming smartphone. Details like pricing and availability will be revealed at the October 31st launch event, so stay tuned to 91mobiles.
