Honor Magic 2 was teased with a 3D scanner on Weibo last week. The updated phone will be launched on March 7, the company CEO has confirmed on the Chinese social media. The announcement was made during a presentation of a book on the accomplishments Honor made since its launch as a brand.

George Zhao, Honor CEO, posted plenty of photos from the event, along with a slide on the back, clearly saying Honor Magic 2 3D. The device is expected to keep its slider mechanism and Kirin 980 chipset, but this time the SoC will come with graphene cooling pad to keep the high-performance rates for extended periods.
Prices of the Honor Magic 2 currently start from CNY3,799 ($560) and go as high as CNY4,799 ($715), depending on the RAM and storage options. Rumors are the 3D variant would skyrocket the price tag to CNY5,799, which is equal to $865. We’ll have to wait until Friday to see if such cost holds true.
