Xiaomi took concept phones to a whole new level with the launch of its bezel-less smartphone the Mi MIX this year. Huawei under its sub-brand Honor might be next in line as it has been rumored to launch its own concept smartphone dubbed Magic .

The Honor Magic smartphone was listed on the online mall JingDong with a price tag of RMB 9,999, which roughly translates to a whopping Rs 97,800. To put this into perspective, the only smartphone that comes close to this price tag in India is the Apple iPhone 7 Plus 256GB model which costs Rs 92,000. This eye-watering price tag is in line with what analyst Pan Jiutang had predicted.
Going by the doodles, we can see that the concept smartphone will be loaded with some really cool features. To start with, the first doodle shows what looks like a 3D glass back for the Honor Magic smartphone. For photography, it is shown as sporting dual-cameras at the back, as well as, the front. The smartphone is also shown sporting a dual-edged curved display with 4K resolution. The leak also suggests that the soon-to-be-launch smartphone will be waterproof and come with support fast charging technology that can power the battery from zero to 50 percent in just five minutes. Other features include a stylus for doodling on the smartphone, and NFC for connectivity. Although the authenticity of this image cannot be judged, we can surely expect Huawei to introduce some innovative features for its concept Magic smartphone.
Just a few days back, the first-ever live photo of the Honor Magic surfaced online. It showed the front of the smartphone, conforming that it will come with a fingerprint scanner on the front, right under the display. The image further showed the smartphone with a very thin bottom and top bezels. Apart from that, the device comes with the power button on the right side and the volume buttons on the left side.
