A few days ago, there was the official release of the first Snapdragon 888 Plus smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. Currently, another set of Snapdragon 888 + flagships is officially released. We are talking about the Honor Magic 3 series. The series includes Honor Magic3, Honor Magic3 Pro, and Honor Magic3 Ultimate Edition. This flagship series is the flagship smartphone since the first Huawei under the Honor brand. According to the company, this is the flagship of “all-round technology.” These devices bring a new experience and extraordinary photography to the Honor brand. This post describes Honor Magic 3 and Honor Magic 3 Pro. Another press release is Honor Magic3 Ultimate Edition.
Both Magic 3 and Magic 3 Pro have an aesthetic design, so the design is basically the same. However, there are some details that distinguish these devices. Magic 3 and Pro models come with a super-curved screen design that converges on the sides of the phone. These devices have a very narrow frame (0.55 mm), which allows for a screen-to-body ratio of 94.86%. The display effect of the entire screen is outstanding.
On the back, the Honor Magic 3 series uses a round camera module in the center of the back. However, there are small, unobtrusive differences between the regular version and the Pro model. The LED flash on the left side of the module is on the left side of the module in the normal version, but the LED flash on the Pro model is on the bottom of the module. Also, the Pro model has “100X” written on the top of the rear camera module. This is not because regular models do not support “100X” zoom. Both smartphones are available in four colors: bright black, white, gold, and dawn blue.
The Honor Magic3 series comes with a 6.76 inch ultra-curved OLED screen. The display supports a high refresh rate of 120Hz and PWM dimming of 1920Hz. The curve on the side of the display is as high as 89 degrees, and this display supports smart refresh rates. This means that the refresh rate will automatically adjust to suit the needs of your usage scenario. These smartphones also support DCI-P3 color gamut, 1.07 billion colors, ΔE <0.8, and HDR10 + certification.
In addition, the Magic3 series also supports hardware-level 4096 brightness adjustments. The 1920Hz high frequency PWM allows the device to avoid low frequency PWM flicker and DC dimming uneven color. The series is also TUV Rheinland’s Low Blue Eye Protection Certification.
The Honor Magic3 series comes with an IMAX ENHANCED certified 50MP main outsole camera. According to the company, camera output is one of the most upgraded features of the Honor Magic 3 series. Apart from the main camera, there are slight differences between Magic 3 and Magic 3 Pro.
Honor Magic3 comes with a triple rear camera setup. It has a 50MP main camera, a 64MP black and white balance sensor, and a 13MP wide-angle macro lens that supports laser focus.
Honor Magic3 Pro comes with a quad rear camera setup. Like Magic3, Magic3 Pro comes with a 50MP main camera. However, the device also has a 64MP black-and-white sensor, a 13MP wide-angle macro lens, and an additional telephoto lens that supports OIS, 3.5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom, and 100x digital zoom. The focus has been upgraded to an 8×8 dToF laser focus for a wider range of accurate focus.
In terms of algorithms, the Magic 3 series also supports Honor’s self-developed HONOR Image Engine. Through high-level algorithms with different structures, the strategy engine is separated and the imaging process is restructured to maximize efficiency. You can integrate software and hardware combinations into different platforms to create end-to-end imaging capabilities.
More importantly, the Honor Magic 3 Series is the first smartphone to pass the IMAX ENHANCED certification this time. We worked with the Hollywood team to create professional-level video gameplay such as Magic-log and 3D LUT. The series also creates the first AI tone recommendations and enhanced movies using AI.
The Honor Magic3 series is the first flagship series using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 + SoC. This is because the first smartphone to use this chip, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4, is the only smartphone, not the series. The large core frequency will increase to 3.0GHz and AI performance will improve by more than 20%. This series comes with superconducting hexagonal graphene and VC heat / cold heat dissipation technology. This effectively improves heat dissipation efficiency and lowers the temperature during the game.
The Magic3 series not only supports 5G SA / NSA networks, but both primary and secondary cards also support SA connectivity. In addition, these smartphones also support the latest Link Turbo X technology. It also supports dual Wi-Fi and dual cellular network technologies to reach network speeds of 6.1 Gbps. In addition to ultra-fast network speeds, you can also automatically switch between different networks to keep your connection speed high.
In addition, the Magic 3 series is equipped with the OS Turbo X engine developed by Honor. This feature brings advanced technologies such as ultra-low latency engine, anti-aging engine and smart memory engine. Software and hardware work synergistically to strengthen mobile phones and reduce power consumption.
When it comes to game performance, the Magic 3 series also supports Honor’s GPU Turbo X optimization technology. When playing the game, it ensures that the system runs at full frame and reduces power consumption. With this technology, popular and demanding games can run up to 120 frames.
The Honor Magic3 series comes with a 4600mAh battery that supports 66W wired fast charging and 50W wireless fast charging. In other respects, the Honor Magic 3 Series also supports 3D facial recognition, dual speakers, car-level navigation 2.0, IP68 dust and water resistance, and more.
