Honor Magic 2 with Camera Slider & No Bezels Teased at IFA 2018!

Published

on

The IFA Berlin event is just a day away from the scheduled start date of August 31 but it seems like companies are holding events a day or two earlier than decided to grab the initial publicity. Today, the Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has unveiled a new phone i.e. the Honor Magic 2 which has something serious to do with the design language it carries.

The Honor Magic 2 was teased by company’s president George Zhao as “one more thing”- in typical Apple style, just after the European launch of the Honor Play. This device carries a notch-less display with almost no bezels and will succeed the Honor Magic that was launched way back in late 2016.

Let us begin with the highlight of the device first. The Honor Magic 2 has a similar appeal like the Oppo Find X but implements a different and more practical technology. The front camera, sensors and the earpiece are placed on a sliding component at the back which should be physically dragged by the user in order to make it work whenever required, unlike the motorized mechanism found on the Find X .

However, do note that the Honor Magic 2 is just teased in Berlin as of now while the official launch is scheduled two months later. During the teaser, Honor only played a teaser video that didn’t actually reveal anything except a bit of design language followed by the phone physically being showcased with its sliding capabilities by Mr Zhao.

The guys at Forbes, who actually interviewed Mr Zhao at the event, reveal that the reason why they teased the device so earlier was because one of their competitor was planning for a similar phone and therefore, Honor wanted to do it first.

Mr Zhao also said that the basic hardware of the device with sliding format was already finished months ago but they held it back to pack the newer Hisilicon Kirin 980 chipset with the device which is reported to be the world’s first 7nm SoC built by TSMC, featuring the new NPU reserved for next gen Huawei/Honor flagships. Moreover, the phone is said to pack some extra ordinary AI features with the use of new chipset.

As of now, only the China release has been confirmed. The device is expected to come within next two months in its home country with some minor refinements. Till then, stay tuned.

oneplus 6t teaser

So the OnePlus 6T is coming soon, too soon I guess. Amazon has put up an official teaser page for OnePlus 6T and OnePlus has started running teaser ads for the phone on TV. The teaser image is what you are seeing in the featured image.

Take a look at the TV ad that someone captured and uploaded to YouTube:

Also, we’ve a leak regarding the phone today, which confirms that the phone isn’t going to come with a triple camera setup as it was previously reported.

Take a look at the leaked image of the back of the phone:

Also the phone shown in the TV ad pretty much confirms that the phone would be looking similar to the OnePlus 6 itself.

Talking about OnePlus 6T, what has been confirmed is the presence of the in display fingerprint scanner and a potential inclusion of water drop notch that we saw from recent Oppo phones like Oppo F9 Pro and Oppo R17 , and also the Vivo V11 Pro.

Other than that, pretty much everything would be remain the same. We can also expect minor upgrades in terms of camera, but don’t be surprised if they didn’t change anything on that front.

Another factor is the price. It would be surprising if OnePlus actually kept the price the same as they did with OnePlus 5T launch.

For now, all we can do now is to wait for the launch and more teasers and also for more leaks.

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%.
