Huawei Honor Magic Specifications

Its 5-inch curved screen carries support for 2K resolution. Since it is a powered by Kirin 950 chipset and not the more powerful Kirin 960 SoC, it can be said that it won’t be a flagship smartphone. Using the old chipset is probably due to its long development period, wherein the chipset was finalized a while back. The chipset is said to be supported by 4GB of RAM.

Other expected features of Huawei Honor Magic include 12-megapixel dual front-facing and rear cameras. Other features include iris scanner, NFC, stylus support and a fingerprint reader embedded under the display. Its 2,900 mAh battery is rumored to support wireless charging and super fast charging.

Jiutang had mentioned earlier on Weibo that the Huawei Honor Magic will be carry an expensive price tag. Recently, the smartphone was listed on JingDong online mall with a whooping price of 9999 RMB ($1442). But that’s probably not true and the final price should be much cheaper than the above figure.
