After putting the mechanical slider in a smartphone by Oppo in its Find X and Nex, upcoming smartphones are also ready to do the same experiment on their new phones. The latest in this race is Huawei owned Honor’s Magic 2. Basically mechanical slider allow company to make a full display without the notch and make room for front camera. The phone was about to announce officially on October 31 but the company is now teasing its audience with releasing some images from their side.
The images shared on the company’s official Weibo account show the box and the smartphone itself in what appears to be two colour variants.
The phone is seen to be sporting a triple camera system on the rear, which is quite similar looking to the Huawei P20 Pro. As a matter of fact, the device’s dual-tone Blue and Purple gradient colour variant also are also very P20 Pro-like.

The first photo reveals the rear camera setup of the smartphone which consists of three camera sensors and an LED flash on top. The next photo shows the front of the smartphone which does not appear to have any sort of notch on top.

The camera slider of the Honor Magic 2 has also been revealed in the Weibo post, which can be manually operated as confirmed by the company previously. The back of the smartphone comes with “AI Vision” branding.
