Huawei Honor Magic Rumored To Feature Kirin 950, Iris Recognition & 40W Fast Charging

by Joe 20

After the Xiaomi Mi Mix, we are all excited to meet the new concept smartphone to be announced soon, the Huawei Honor Magic. The company has already confirmed the release to be on December 16, which is less than a week away. While we are expecting some amazing specs on the device, new rumors about the phone has cropped up online, toning down the expected Honor Magic specifications to some extent.

The new rumor says that the Huawei Honor Magic will come with Kirin 950 octa-core chipset (when there’s already Kirin 960 used by the Mate 9) along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. This isn’t exactly mind blowing specification, but it’s still decent. Further, the phone is said to sport a compact 5-inch display with 2K resolution, which would translate into some serious pixel density (~587 ppi). There will be dual cameras on the front as well as the back (12MP). The front would also boast of Iris recognition. Finally, for fast charging, the Huawei Honor Magic is said to support 5V / 8A charging tech, which would translate into 40W charging, much, much faster than the current Mate 9’s 25W charging. However, the battery capacity is said to be limited to 2900mAh.


The Honor Magic is said to have already passed through the 3C certification website back in August under the model number NTS-AL00. Also, the code name for the phone is reportedly “Natasha”.

    I didnt like the idea of Kirin 950

    • هادي خآن

      and 2900mAh

      • Raky_b

        it’s 5′ phone….it is more mAh then most of competitors

    • balcobomber25

      Kirin 950 is an excellent chip.

    Why would anyone expect the latest soc if it has been in the works for some time, it’s more likely they would have maybe an older soc

  • This could be… the one!

    Stretched screen, that’s gonna be “the thing” in 2017

  • Pezzo

    So damn retarded if it launches with K950. At least K960.
    Otherwise it’s a freaking scam.
    If it does launch with K960, then it very well may be one of the most interesting phones in 2016.

    • balcobomber25

      How is it scam lol? The 950 is still a very good processor.

      • Pezzo

        It is.
        But compaired to 960 it’s not much 🙂

        • balcobomber25

          The 960 is a much better overall chip but it really depends on what the person using it is doing. The 950 is still more than powerful enough for the people this phone is geared towards. For those that need the extra power there is the Mate 9 and soon to be announced P10.

          • Pezzo

            True that. Well hopefully it’ll be equipped with 960 instead of 950 🙂

          • balcobomber25

            I doubt it will seeing as it is an Honor phone and they are usually lower priced models. It will most likely either be 950 or 955.

  • balcobomber25

    Might not be bad depending on the price. Hopefully there is a “plus” model with a bigger display though.

      Hi Balco, hope you are well. I am planning to buy the MI5S and wanted to have your opinion about it. Should I go for the 3/64GB model or the 4/32GB version? I don’t need to have 64GB storage so the 4/32GB version should be more than enough for me. The only problem I encounter is that I am not able to find the 4/32GB version with a black front and the back in grey color. Xiaomi still struggle to release their flagship phones in darker color months after the release date. I am wondering if I should get the Redmi 4 Prime and wait for the Xiaomi MI6. Thank you in advance for your honest opinion.

      • balcobomber25

        What do you usually do with your phones? Do you play the latest graphic heavy games like Modern Combat or Real Racing? If the answer to that is yes I would get the Mi5s or wait for the Mi6. If it’s not the Redmi 4 Prime is an excellent phone for light to medium usage.

        • Luc

          Thanks for your reply. I am not a gamer but I will play some games like Fifa and other light ones. The MI5S equipped with 4gb ram and 32gb storage coming with a black front is hard to find. Same for the 3/64gb version. I can’t wait anymore so I am going to get the Redmi 4 Prime which can handle most of the games in medium settings. Moreover I will get a phone with great battery life.

          • balcobomber25

            Excellent choice.

          • Jh1

            Hope you enjoy your Redmi 4 prime. I am very happy with mine. Excellent battery life, snappy performance and great build. Camera is adequate, but nothing more, and speakers are a little weak. Overall a great package though.
