The best hardware for a high-end that does not want to be foldable
Honor has stylized the excellent design of its predecessor, the Honor Magic 5, in a body that stands out for a striking camera module and a front dominated by its 6.78-inch OLED panel. Screen that, on paper, looks very good thanks to an adaptable refresh rate between 1 and 120 hertz, which will ensure fluidity and energy savings when not needed.
The ‘brain’ chosen by the Chinese manufacturer is none other than the Qualcomm’s most powerful chip for this generation: a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 that will be repeated ad nauseam in the high range. It is accompanied by generous amounts of memory with options from 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB for internal storage.
In the photographic field, there will be no shortage of megapixels: the main sensor has a resolution of 50 megapixels and an f/1.9 aperture, optically stabilized like the 32 megapixel telephoto. The third in contention is a 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens with f/2.0 aperture. In the circular cutout that we see on the screen, a 50-megapixel selfie camera is housed.
The autonomy of this Honor will be given by a 5,450 mAh battery, with 66 watt fast charging. Of course, here we do not have the second generation of silicon-carbon batteries, as is the case with its older brother, the Honor Magic 6 Pro. Remarkable, to say the least, is its 50-watt wireless charging, and the reverse charging that it provides is mentionable. It will be used to recharge accessories such as wearables.
In it software everything updated: Android 14 is the operating system that hides under the manufacturer’s layer, MagicOS in version 8. It will not miss anything in the connectivity section either, with compatibility with the standard standing out. Wi-Fi 7the next step in wireless connectivity.
