Honor's Magic 2 phone is finally official. The handset, which slides down to reveal the camera on the front, with a bezelless screen, was troubled by the short trailer used to pull the beat to the table before. (Honor has not yet confirmed whether the drum damage is under warranty.)
The main event here is the sliding design, which can be used to automatically open the camera app when the 16MP self camera is released. This design means that the 6.39-inch AMOLED display brings the screen-to-body ratio close to 100%, which is further helped by the use of a fingerprint sensor inside the display. The self-camera is connected to a rear camera array of 24MP triple lens. Internally, the phone is identical to the high-end Kirin 980 we saw recently on Huawei's Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. This includes 128GB or 256GB of onboard storage with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and a 3400mAh battery.
Honor Magic  follows the recent smartphone trend in China, which saw the bezel become smaller and smaller by concealing the self camera when not in use. However, older handsets like Oppo X and Vivo Nex can automatically slide out when needed, but Magic 2 has a manual slider. Manual sliders may not be convenient or durable depending on the implementation of honor.
With the new phone, Honor has released a new pair of true wireless earbuds called FlyPods and Honor Watch. The FlyPod looks similar to the Apple AirPod and is available for £ 799 (about $ 115) on November 6th. The Honor Watch will be available at a price to be announced in January 2019.
The new Honor Magic 2 is priced at $ 3799 (about $ 545) for handsets with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage and 256GB of storage for 8GB of RAM at $ 4799 (about $ 690). It will be released in China on November 6, and the international launch has not yet been confirmed.
