Honor Magic 2 was teased with a 3D scanner on Weibo last week. The updated phone will be launched on March 7, the company CEO has confirmed on the Chinese social media. The announcement was made during a presentation of a book on the accomplishments Honor made since its launch as a brand.George Zhao (sitting), and Honor Magic 2 3D on the screen behind him
George Zhao, Honor CEO, posted plenty of photos from the event, along with a slide on the back, clearly saying Honor Magic 2 3D. The device is expected to keep its slider mechanism and Kirin 980 chipset, but this time the SoC will come with graphene cooling pad to keep the high-performance rates for extended periods.
Prices of the Honor Magic 2 currently start from CNY3,799 ($560) and go as high as CNY4,799 ($715), depending on the RAM and storage options. Rumors are the 3D variant would skyrocket the price tag to CNY5,799, which is equal to $865. We’ll have to wait until Friday to see if such cost holds true.
I really hoped that they release this phone on global scale instead on keeping this phone only for china market. There's no use bragging bout how good your tech are if only one region can benefit from it (like the early version of honor magic 2)...
