Tonight we welcome Honor’s first flagship series after being sold off by Huawei. The new Magic 3 series comes with three devices: Magic 3, Magic 3 Pro, and Magic 3 Pro Plus. These phones are coming to China first, but Honor plans a global release soon. And with that global launch, the handsets will come with Google’s apps and services.
Honor wasn’t able to do this with its past few devices as a subsidiary of Huawei because of its US sanctions.
Like the Xiaomi Mix 4, the Magic 3 Pro and Pro Plus run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 Plus processor, while the Magic 3 runs on the Snapdragon 888 chipset.
They all get 6.76-inch 1344p OLED curved displays with a 120Hz refresh rate and 4,600mAh batteries supporting 66W wired fast-charging. The Magic 3 Pro and Pro Plus also get 50W wireless charging with support for reverse wireless charging. Both also get IP68 dust and water resistance, while the Magic 3 gets an IP54 rating.
The rear cameras differ significantly in these devices:
- Magic 3: 50-megapixel 1/1.56-inch primary + 13-megapixel 1/1.31-inch ultra-wide + 64-megapixel monochrome
- Magic 3 Pro: 50-megapixel 1/1.56-inch primary + 13-megapixel 1/1.31-inch ultra-wide + 64-megapixel monochorome + 64-megapixel 1/2-inch telephoto with 3.5x optical zoom and OIS
- Magic 3 Pro Plus: 50-megapixel 1/1.28-inch primary + 64-megapixel ultra-wide + 64-megapixel monochorome + 64-megapixel 1/2-inch telephoto with 3.5x optical zoom and OIS
We don’t know yet when Honor plans to release the Magic 3 series globally, but this is the pricing so far:
- Magic 3 (8GB RAM + 256GB storage): EUR 899 (around USD 1,055, PHP 53,205)
