Huawei Honor Magic

For the three-year brand anniversary, Honor has shown its new Android smartphone Magic, which offers a curved display and comprehensive comfort functions.

For the anniversary, the Chinese have now shown the new Android smartphone Magic, which could also come to Germany. There is still no official statement from the manufacturer. In China, the device costs about 500 euros.

The technical features include a Kirin 950 Octacore processor, a battery with 2.900 mAh, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of non-expandable data storage. The rear camera has two lenses each with 12 megapixel resolution, plus an 8-megapixel frontcam.

In addition, the smartphone has a comprehensive intelligent sensor and detection technology. The Wise Screen sensor allows users to unlock their mobile phones by facial recognition by taking it up and looking at the screen. The screen turns off automatically and is locked when the mobile phone is dropped or put into a pocket.

The Honor Magic Live System is designed to anticipate the user’s needs through predictive information, thus helping them to make their daily lives easier. This includes, for example, customizable recommendations based on users’ social entertainment with instant messenger apps.
