The Honor Magic Concept Phone Unveiled


Huawei’s best known release for 2016 is undoubtedly the dual camera sporting Huawei P9 and P9 Plus that’s gotten the stamp of approval from famed camera manufacturer, Leica. While these flagship phones from the Chinese brand are definitely making a splash, their Honor line of phones — that often get renamed when it hits the Southeast Asia market — do draw a lot of attention as well. While we’re still waiting for their latest flagship — the Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro — to hit Philippines shores, Huawei’s Honor sub-brand just dropped an awesome concept phone with curves in places we’ve never seen before — The Honor Magic.

Let’s check out its specs.

Honor Magic Specs

  • Kirin 950 octa-core processor
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 5.09-Inch curved QHD AMOLED display; (2560×1440; 587 pixels per inch)
  • 64GB of storage
  • Dual 12-megapixel rear cameras at f/2.2
  • 8-megapixel front camera at f/2.4
  • 3G, LTE
  • Dual SIM (Second SIM 2G only)
  • Fingerprint Scanner
  • IR Front Camera
  • 2900mAh battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow; Magic Live UI


Despite sporting a Kirin 950 SoC that we saw in the Mate 8, The Honor Magic definitely has a couple of things up its sleeves, such as: Fast Charging that internal tests have shown to get the phone from 0 to 40-percent in just 10 minutes and to 70-percent in 20 minutes and the IR Camera up front that’s equipped with Tobii Eye Tracking. This IR Camera is an added layer security on top of the fingerprint scanner; much like the one found in the late Galaxy Note 7. This also for a feature called FaceCode, which hides all your notifications until the Honor Magic recognizes you.

The Honor Magic will only be available in China and is priced at 3,699 Yuan or Php 26,533.
