The surfaced Honor Magic 2 is revealed to powered by Kirin 980 SoC, coupled with 8GB RAM, which is currently available only in the latest Mate series and the Magic 2 will be the first Honor smartphone to pack it.

The Magic 2 scored 3316 single-core and the 9534 multi-core, which is quite same as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro (differences likely due to the prototype hardware). The Magic 2 runs on Android 9.0 Pie and comes with a much teased Yoyo – an Honor solution for a voice assistant, which interestingly speaks English.
The launch of Magic 2 is taking place on Wednesday and TV ads are already rolling and teasing the new smartphone. The video goes back to the launch of the first Honor Magic and makes a bold comparison between the new phone and the creation of the Universe. We have to wait to see what the device posses.
