Huawei's Honor brand has a new cool phone in the works, and it could be pure magic.

In this case, it's actually the Magic 2, the second version of the AI-powered Magic phone the company launched two years ago. Honor's President George Zhao teased the phone on stage, revealing a phone that's all screen, with no notch or chin in sight. 

Taking a page from Oppo's Find X ($929 at Amazon Marketplace), the Magic 2 will have a slide-out camera, only this time, you'll have to physically slide it out unlike the mechanical motorized shooters of the Find X.

No notch and no chin makes the Magic 2 very magical, it seems.

The Magic 2 is likely still two months away, according to a Forbes report, and Honor's Zhao decided to reveal details only because a competitor had caught wind of its design and had planned on coming out with its own.

The Magic 2 will also feature Huawei's upcoming Kirin 980 chip, and could have a voice assistant called Yoyo. 

That's all we know from the tease at the Honor Play's ($340 at Amazon) IFA launch, and we'll be sure to update this first take with more information when we find out more.
