After Xiaomi’s Mi MIX, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor had been teasing the launch of its concept phone for the past few days. At an event in China earlier today, the company finally took the wraps off the smartphone. Called ‘Honor Magic,’ the smartphone features a refreshing new design along with a number of other features to make it stand out from the crowd. While the Huawei Mate 9 featured its share of artificial intelligence (AI) chops, with the Honor Magic, the company has gone one step ahead.

In terms of design, the Honor Magic sports a metal frame with curved edges and a double 3D glass at the front and back tapered towards the edges. The power and volume buttons are placed on the right edge, whereas the 3.5mm audio jack, dual SIM card tray, microUSB port and speaker grille are placed at the bottom. On the front, just below the display, the Honor Magic comes with the physical home button, which also doubles as a fingerprint scanner. It also includes gesture control features – a combination of taps, swipe and long press can be used for back, switch between apps and exit to homescreen. The feature is similar to U-Touch on the Lenovo Z2 Plus. Also Read - Honor Band 6 takes on Redmi Watch in India, gets listed on Flipkart

Honor Magic features

The smart and intelligent AI assistant on the Honor Magic is designed to understand and analyze user data and to offer interactive features, the company said. Honor explained some of the AI features by giving out some examples, AndroidAuthority reports. For instance, if you are are chatting with your friends on WeChat app and discussing about movies, the AI assistant can recommend you with some latest blockbusters. If you are on road, the assistant will recognize that you are driving and it will prompt you to turn on the driving mode.

If you order a cab, the license plate information of the driver will be displayed under the lockscreen. Similarly, if you booked a movie ticket, the moment you arrive at the theatre, the Honor Magic will display the booking number on the screen. Also, when you move towards the parcel collection counter, the AI assistant on Honor Magic will display the tracking number. What’s more, if you enter a dark room, the auto lock screen will launch the flashlight to quickly lighten things up. These are just some examples of the working of AI assistant on the Honor Magic.

The Honor Magic also has two other features — the WideScreen sensor which uses the sensor in the frame and the infrared sensor in the selfie camera to turn the screen on when you pick up the phone. When the phone is put down or in the pocket, the screen automatically turns off. Secondly, when any notification arrives, the FaceCode Intelligent Recognition feature will only show notification after it detects pre-registered faces. For instance, if you have registered your face, other users won’t be able to see the notifications, thus helping keep your content safe from prying eyes.

Honor Magic specifications

The Honor Magic flaunts a 5.09-inch QHD AMOLED display running at a resolution of 2560x1440pixels and pixel density of 577ppi. Under the hood runs Huawei’s homegrown Kirin 950 octa-core SoC clocked at 2.3GHz paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. A microSD card slot for further expansion is also present.

In the photography department, the Honor Magic comes with 12-megapixel dual rear cameras (an RGB color and a monochrome sensor) with aperture f/2.2. For selfies and video calling, there is an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. Armed with a 2,900mAh battery, connectivity options on the smartphone include Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth and GPS. On the software front, the smartphone boot Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, with a layer of Honor’s custom UI running on top.

Honor Magic price

The smartphone is priced at RMB 3,699, which is approximately Rs 37,000. It will go on sale via several online retailers in China. However, the company hasn’t mentioned when it plans to launch the smartphone outside China.
