Huawei Honor Magic smartphone was launched in December 2016. The phone comes with a 5.09-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1440 pixels by 2560 pixels at a PPI of 577 pixels per inch.
and Honor took one step further by also curving the top side. These three round edges are mirrored to the phone’s glass back, so if it weren’t for the metallic chin and mid-frame, the Magic would resemble a piece of polished black pebble. And because of the moderate body size plus the curved back, the Magic feels nice in my hand.
The Huawei Honor Magic is powered by 1.8GHz octa-core Kirin 950 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage cannot be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Huawei Honor Magic packs a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies. one color and one monochrome, should produce excellent imagery.
The Huawei Honor Magic runs Android 6.0 and is powered by a 2900mAh non removable battery. It measures 146.10 x 69.90 x 7.80 (height x width x thickness) . The frame is itself a sensor, the home button is also a fingerprint reader, and on the front is an eye-tracking unit from Tobii, which generally builds them into laptops and monitors — this is the first smartphone they’ve put one in.
The metal along the sides of the phone is so thin it just barely gives room for the thin power and volume buttons, relegating the SIM slot to the bottom of the phone. But despite its compact size the Magic still has a headphone jack on the bottom as well. And unlike the just-released budget Honor 6X the Magic has a proper USB-C port for charging. The Huawei Honor Magic is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Micro-SIM and Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM, 3G and 4G. Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope.
Alas, unlike previous Honor devices, the Magic doesn’t come cheap: It’s priced at about $530 — just a tad more expensive than Xiaomi’s very own “concept phone,” the Mi MIX. Not that it matters for most of us, anyway, as we understand that much like the Mi MIX, the Magic won’t be available outside China. But if all goes well, some of the aforementioned features may eventually end up on future Huawei-branded devices, so just sit back and let others be Huawei’s guinea pigs for the time being.
