Huawei Honor Magic | A smartphone that does magic

Honor Magic is the latest sibling of the Honor family and there are a lot to talk about this phone, the design for me is the best Huawei gave a phone. It’s a curved design but not the usual curved we are used too, I mean when we think of a curved screen phone, one would guess it curved on the left and right screen, but this is not the case here, this phone has Eight curved sides which makes the design more beautiful.

As for power house, Honor magic is powered by Huawei’s processor Kirin 950, 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage, the display is a 5 inches with 2K resolution.

Honor Magic sports a 12MP camera (color + monochrome) with an f/2.2 aperture and large 1.4µm pixels, a dual camera setup, something similar to Honor 8, while the selfie camera is 8MP selfie camera with (f/2.0).

What’s magical about the Honor Magic?

Well for the first time in mobile phone history, we now have a proper smartphone, and with the help of Magic Live, a software built specifically for the phone to know practically everything about you. Though some of its features we’ve seen in some smartphone but I will list the ones we’ve not seen before.

  • Magic Live will know if you’re holding the phone and when you receive a call it will vibrate instead of ringing.
  • Magic Live will automatically light up the display the moment you look at it, thanks to the infrared sensor as it keeps track of your eyes. In addition when a new message comes in, you can see it on notification screen but when a stranger holds your phone, the message won’t show.
  • Magic Live detect whenever you’re in a dark room and it automatically recommends you to use a flashlight.

Other features of the smartphones includes fast charging which will up to 90% in just 30 minutes, USB Type-C,  Magic Touch home button which integrates multiple gestures like single click for home, double click for multi-task panel swiping for back, Bluetooth 4.0 and the phone will run Android 7.0 out of the box.

When it comes to pricing, Huawei Honor Magic will cost $533, the phone goes on sale from 16th December.
