Honor Magic 2 has been launched in China, and features an in-display fingerprint scanner as well as a sliding design that houses the front camera. The phone offers AI-based features, like its own digital assistant, Yoyo, and connectivity across a range of devices. Honor Magic 2 is available in three colour variants: Gradient Red, Gradient Blue and Gradient Black.

Despite the near-identical sliding form factor, the Magic 2 actually uses a different mechanism than the Mix 3 — a butterfly five-track sliding mechanism instead of the latter’s dual neodymium magnetic rails. So far, I have to say that I prefer the Mix 3’s springier and thus more reassuring feel, but that’s not to say that the Magic 2 feels sloppy; it’s fine as it is.

Honor Magic 2 offers Dual GPS, Hi103WiFi chip, dual VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.0, and a type-C USB port for connectivity. The phone has been priced at 3799 yuan/$545 (Rs 40,340 approx.) for the 6GB RAM/128GB variant, 4299 yuan/$690 (Rs 45,650 approx.) for the 8GB RAM/128GB variant and 4799 yuan (Rs 50,960 approx.) for the 8GB RAM/256GB variant.
