HONOR Magic6 Launches with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and Android 14

Say hello to the HONOR Magic6. It’s here, and it’s got a ‘Pro’ sibling. They’re kinda twins, but not identical. They’ve got the same look, but different guts. They were born in China, but they’re planning to travel the world soon. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s talk about the Magic6’s looks first, okay?

So, the HONOR Magic6. It’s a metal and glass baby, just like its sibling. It’s got this camera island on its back that makes it stand out from the crowd. But here’s the thing: the Magic6’s camera island is a tad smaller than the Magic6 Pro’s.

The Magic6 has a curved display, with barely-there bezels. It’s got a hole punch right in the middle at the top. It’s sleeker than the ‘Pro’, but it doesn’t have the 3D facial scanning thingy.

The display? It’s a 6.78-inch beauty. Curved, with a resolution of 2800 x 1264 pixels. It’s an LTPO AMOLED display, and it can go from 1 to 120Hz. It’s got a 4,320Hz PWM dimming too, to keep your eyes safe.

Under the hood, it’s got the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. It’s the same chip that powers the HONOR Magic6 Pro. You can get it with 12GB or 16GB RAM. The 12GB RAM model comes with 256GB of storage, while the 16GB RAM variant is available in both 256GB and 512GB storage options.

The battery? It’s a 5,450mAh powerhouse. It supports 66W wired charging and 50W wireless charging. And yes, they’ve included a charger in the box.

The camera setup? It’s got a 50-megapixel main camera (f/1.9 aperture, OIS), a 50-megapixel ultrawide camera (f/2.0 aperture), and a 32-megapixel telephoto unit (f/2.4 aperture, OIS, 50x digital zoom). For selfies, there’s a 50-megapixel wide-angle camera (f/2.0 aperture).

The software? It’s got Android 14, with HONOR’s MagicOS 8.0. It’s got two SIM card slots, and it supports facial scanning, but only via the front-facing camera. There’s a fingerprint scanner under the display. It supports 5G and Bluetooth 5.3.

The Magic6 launched in China, but it’s probably going to hit the global markets soon. Maybe next month, during the MWC 2024. But don’t quote me on that.

The HONOR Magic6 comes in Black, Glacier White, Lake Blue, Cloud Purple, and Epi Green. In China, it starts at CNY4,399 ($619).
