The all-screen-no-notch Honor Magic 2 is expected to debut on the last day of October with the HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor under the hood. Its specs are also rumored to include an in-display fingerprint reader, an AMOLED display, as well as a graphene-based battery — the first handset to use this technology.

This month's long stream of Android handset releases seems to be heading for an impressive ending. If what appears to be an official marketing teaser is right, the OPPO Find X-lookalike will be unleashed in Beijing on October 31. Obviously, this handset that comes as a direct successor to the original Honor Magic, which launched as a concept device exclusively available in China, is not an OPPO Find X ripoff.

Apparently powered by the top-of-the-line HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor, the Honor Magic 2 is rumored to feature an AMOLED display, a slide-out selfie shooter (unlike the motorized one used by the Find X, the Magic 2's front camera will be pushed in and out manually), an in-display fingerprint reader, as well as a graphene-based battery. To make it better than just "the first phone to use a graphene battery," Honor also announced that this will be the first handset to use second-generation 40W fast charging.

Since the Honor Magic 2 was shown at IFA 2018 in English — something that did not happen with its predecessor — we can safely assume that this handset will not be exclusively available in China. However, more official information should surface in the coming weeks, so stay tuned and take all the above with a grain of salt for the time being.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
