Honor teased the Honor Magic 2 smartphone at the IFA event this year. The handset is speculated to feature a edge-to-edge display and a slide-out panel that houses the front camera and the other sensors. The launch date was a mystery until now, but a new leaked teaser image hints that it maybe launched on October 26.

The teaser shows the effigy of the Magic 2 and it matches with the previously released official teaser. It seems to sport a sliding mechanism that reminds us of the OPPO Find X, but it is rumoured to have a manual slider instead of a mechanical one. A fingerprint on the lower half of the device hints that it may come with an in-screen fingerprint sensor. Unfortunately, it shares no insight in the rear panel which is still a mystery.

As for the specs, there is not much information on the Honor Magic 2 but the handset is confirmed to be powered by a Kirin 980 chipset under its hood. It will be the second smartphone from the company after Huawei Mate 20-series  feature the latest HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset built on 7nm fabrication process. It is rumoured to sport a 6 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of FHD+ (1440 x 2880 pixels) and a screen-to-body ratio above 90%.

There is no other information about the device but the company is expected to launch a official teaser in the coming days.

Recently, we heard the rumours of Realme working on a selfie-centric U-series smartphone. Now, before leaks could popularise the device, the company has announced the debut date of the same by putting a teaser on the e-commerce giant Amazon.

As per the landing page on Amazon.in, the Realme U1 is touted to bear the “Most Powerful Selfie Camera Ever” backed by a high-res depth engine with accurate AI detection. Furthermore, it will feature a dew-drop notch and also will be the first smartphone to debut with MediaTek Helio P70 SoC. The device is scheduled to unveil on the 28th of November, at 12:30 PM IST.

To recall, Madhav Seth, CEO, Realme India previously confirmed that Realme would be the first one to make use of new MediaTek Helio P70 chipset built on the 12nm FinFet process. This freshly unveiled chipset bears four Cortex A73  performance cores coupled with four low-powered Cortex A53 cores that are clocked at 2.1GHz along with a dedicated co-processor for performing AI tasks, offering significant improvements concerning performance and efficiency over the Helio P60 used on the first gen Realme 1.

Apart from the dew-drop notch and chipset, we don’t have much information regarding the device. Although, an earlier GeekBench listing suggested the phone to come with Android 8.1 Oreo and 4GB of RAM.

That being said, the Realme U1 will be the fifth smartphone by the company under the third U-series lineup. With just four devices, Realme has witnessed a phenomenal growth regarding sales. They have also expanded to countries like Indonesia and Malaysia. Apart from this, the company has gone through certain events like the recent price hike followed by the logo change.

This new Selfie pro might be a game-changer for the company if priced correctly. Given that the launch is around a week to go, let’s wait and watch. Stay tuned.
