HONOR Magic3 series rumor round-up

by Jeremy

Since its detachment from Huawei, the amount of news surrounding Honor has been low, but it looks like the manufacturer has kept itself busy. Reports have continually tipped that it’s working on a foldable device, and the company has been teasing the Magic3 line of flagship phones over the last few weeks.

With an event confirmed on August 12th, we are less than a month away from seeing what Honor has planned. But as with most device launches, leaks surrounding specifications and design have appeared. So in this article, we’ve rounded up several bits of information regarding the Honor Magic3 Series to help you get a clearer picture of what you can expect.

As for what the series entails, according to @RODENT950, interested buyers can expect to see four models, the Magic3 SE, Magic3, Magic3 Pro, and Magic3 Pro Plus. This leaker has seemingly had success with information regarding HUAWEI’s P50 Series by sharing official-looking renders which match the teaser shared by the company. But we would still recommend taking all information with a grain of salt.HONOR

Design and Display

Focusing on the design, rumors say there will be four devices, but we’ve only seen information regarding the Magic3 and Magic3 Pro/Pro Plus. Both devices will feature a circular camera module on the back, which Honor has seemingly confirmed with a teaser on its website.

The design choices for the front and rear have resulted in parallels drawn to HUAWEI’s Mate Series. As for the show, an ad on CCTV5, which we reported on, showcases the dual selfie camera on the Magic3. As for the Magic 3 Pro/Pro Plus, leaks suggest the phone will feature a 6.76-inch 1228p Waterfall display made by Visionox, and it will bring an under-display camera unit.

Honor’s CEO also shared information about the inspiration behind the color scheme on the Magic3 Series. His exact words were :

“In the 15-to-20-minute period before sunset or after sunrise, when the sun is between -6° and -4° below the horizon, the sky lights up in dark blue. The sky has a pink or pink-gold hue when the sun is between -4° and 6° above the horizon. These color phases during the Magic Hour gave the HONOR Magic3 Series its two colors name, Blue Hour and Golden Hour.“

Camera and Battery

Unfortunately, the rumors surrounding the Magic3 Series are limited in numbers. So we don’t have a clear idea what sort of sensors it will offer, but according to this tweet, the Pro/Pro Plus will be capable of 100x zoom, termed SuperZoom.

It also shared information about the battery offered on the Pro device, which is reportedly a 4,000mAh cell capable of 100W wired and 50W wireless charging.

Performance of Honor Magic3 Series

Good performance is essential for smartphones, and the chipset bundled with one is often the purchase’s make or break point. With the Magic3 Series, Qualcomm, and Honor officials have confirmed that the new devices will leave nothing on the table by shipping with the Snapdragon 888 Plus SoC.
