Honor Magic With AI Software and 5-inch 2K display Announced
Huawei today unveiled a new Honor Flagship – Magic – which is AI smart and comes loaded with a set of unique and interesting features that you would expect from a flagship.
To start with, the Honor Magic has a 5-inch 2K AMOLED display with curved edges and 3D glass layered on top. The 3D glass reflects light, making the edges shine and pop. The home button on the front has a fingerprint reader below it and can also act as back and recent apps key, pretty much like the Lenovo Z2 Plus or Meizu home key.
On the inside, the handset employs the 2.3GHz Kirin 950 octa-core chipset with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Software is Android Marshmallow with Honor Magic Live smarts integrated on top.
The intelligent software provides intuitive solutions to everyday problems to make your life simpler. If you are driving to a theater, you phone will know it and relay the ticket booking number as soon as you reach the theater. It can also detect your touch using a bunch of frame sensors and front camera and light the display instantly.
If you walk into dark room at night, the phone can automatically fire the flash light for your convenience. There are numerous such nifty features implemented in the Honor Magic software.
For photography, Huawei has added a 12MP dual rear cameras on the rear (one monochrome one colored, just as in Honor 8 and Huawei P9) and an 8MP selfie camera on the front.
Other features include 4G, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 4.2, GPS and 2900 mAh battery that can charge from 0 to 40 percent in just 10 minutes and from 0 to 70 percent in 20 minutes.
The Handset will only retail in China as of now.
