Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor, is all set to launch its next flagship smartphone, the Honor Magic 2. The phone, which is slated for an October 31 launch, is expected to sport a manual camera slider housing the front camera setup. This is similar to what is obtained in the recently launched Xiaomi Mi Mix 3.
New reports have it that the Honor Magic 2 has now been spotted on the AnTuTu benchmarking portal, with certain key specifications of the device now revealed. In addition, a teaser has been leaked, showing a DJI-branded drone. This means that there could be an announcement of an Honor-DJI partnership at the launch tomorrow. However, even if this is set to happen, the details are not known yet.
Bang Gogo, a popular tipster tweeted the alleged screenshot of the Honor Magic 2’s AuTuTu listing. According to the alleged listing, the phone, with a model number Honor TNY-AL00, scores an impressive 248,368 on the AnTuTu benchmark. Since it is of a pre-release unit, this score may change when the phone eventually launches.
