Huawei has just unveiled what looks a like the sum of all curves. Designed to be as smooth as a pebble, the Honor Magic is the company’s newest flagship-level offering.


The Honor Magic’s design speaks a signature style and elegance that is present from those that have come before it such as the P9, though this time, the focus seems to lean more on soft curves with a minimalist feeling. The home button acts as the fingerprint sensor, and it  features a unique SIM card slot design, in which the cards are stacked.

Smartphones with dual camera setups have been the talk of town lately, so it’s no wonder that the company has decided to give the Honor Magic, a sprinkle of the P9’s bread and butter. Thus, the device sports a dual 12MP camera setup, one for capturing color, and one monochrome. For selfies, there is an 8MP front-facing camera to take on the task.


The Honor Magic runs on Honor Magic Live OS on top of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Why magic you say? well, this phone has something they call DeepThink, which is claimed to be a digital assistant that recognizes your eyes using an infrared camera so that only you, and other trusted users can view notifications. Pretty neat right? well, as good as an idea is, we’ll just have to see how well it works.
