With modern smartphones pretty well matched up in terms of performance and features, buyers expect the best of phone makers to come up with something fresh and alluring, something which they think deserves their money and will offer something extra which regular smartphones don't. As one among the top phone makers in the world, Honor isn't letting it's fans down this time. The company has launched Honor Magic, a truly curved phone with glass edges at the top, bottom and both sides along with a slim profile.
Honor Magic looks absolutely sleek and at first look, you might just mistake it for a limited edition piece. But it's striking looks aren't replicated inside as it's specifications match that of the mid-range Honor 8 smartphone. The phone is priced at CNY 3700 which is around £425 and for a device with such looks, not many would mind paying that amount.
Honor Magic runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and it's specifications include a 2.3GHz Kirin 950 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 5.09-inch AMOLED display, dual 12-MP rear Monochrome and RGB cameras, an 8-MP front camera and a 2,900 mAh battery. It isn't quite up there compared to the flagships but is more comparable to the likes of Honor 8 or somewhere near the Huawei P9. It is available in China in Golden Black and Porcelain White models but as of now, we only have images of the Golden Black variant to show you.
Honor Magic also includes a number of features like an Iris scanner as a biometric authentication feature, notifications on the lock screen, a quick charging solution enabled by “special graphite molecular structure” in the battery which can charge the phone from 0 to 40% in 10 minutes and a "Deep Think" AI tool which works very much like Google Now on Tap.
Honor Magic is already up for sale in China but there's no news on whether the phone will be available in Europe or in the United States before the end of the year or for that matter, anytime in the future. The phone's design does make it look like Honor has invested quite a lot of effort on it and it would be strange if Honor wouldn't want to flaunt it in the near future. If we hear anything about the phone's launch anywhere outside China, we'll let you know.
