Huawei released the Honor Magic as a sort of concept device. It has a beautiful and unique design as its eight edges are curved and is one of Huawei’s truly intelligent smartphones.
When it launched almost a year ago, the Honor Magic was priced at ¥3699 (~$560). For the first time since its release, the Magic has gotten an official price cut and a huge one at that.
The Honor Magic will now sell for ¥2699 (~$409). Interested buyers can purchase the Magic at the new price not only on the official Huawei online store (Vmall.com) but also on JD.com, TMall.com, and Suning.com.
For those who have forgotten the specs, the Honor Magic packs a 5.09” 2K AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It is powered by the Kirin 950 processor.
It has dual 12MP f/2.2 rear cameras in the monochrome + RGB configuration and an 8MP f/2.0 front facing camera. Battery capacity is 2900mAh with support for super fast charging (90% in 30 minutes).
The Honor Magic doesn’t have a MicroSD card slot but has an audio jack, a USB-C port, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, and dual SIM support. It also has face unlock and a bunch of pretty interesting software features.
The Honor Magic runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Magic Live UI out of the box. There is no mention of an update to Nougat or Oreo which might just be the deal breaker for this device.
