Huawei is set to release the Honor Magic 2 before the end of the year, with the device touted to feature a Kirin 970, a mechanical slider, and, possibly, a 40W fast-charging system.

Huawei released the Honor Magic in late December 2016 as the company’s innovative offering for the year, a release that can be considered to be a mirror of Xiaomi’s Mi Mix series. The company is billed to follow up that device with a direct successor, the Honor Magic 2, this year, and details of the device have surfaced.

According to the source, the Honor Magic 2 will sport a 6-inch QHD+ AMOLED display. It will feature a mechanical slider like we saw on the OPPO Find X. It could also have a motor for the selfie camera, a la Vivo Nex S, although we don’t know how viable having both at the same time is. Supposedly, the front camera motor is mechanically actuated and doesn’t activate automatically if the camera app is opened. All of this could mean we get a device with an outrageous screen-to-body ratio, perhaps one in the 95% region.

The Honor Magic 2 is said to be powered by a Kirin 970, which would be a last-gen SoC by the time the device is released. It will feature 6 GB of RAM, a 12 MP + 12 MP dual rear camera setup, a 24 MP selfie camera, and a 3300 mAh battery with, possibly, up to 40 W fast-charging keeping things ridiculously snappy.
