The latest flagship Honor phones are here with the brand-new Magic3 series. We start with the regular Magic3 and Magic3 Pro which share plenty of similarities across their spec sheets but differ in their camera setups. These are also the first IMAX-enhanced phones on the market offering exclusive 3D LUT color grading profiles and video recording in the LOG format.
Both Magic3 and Magic3 Pro feature curved 6.76-inch OLED displays with a 120Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution. The panels support 10-bit color output and come with a pill-shaped cutout for their 13MP main cam alongside a 3D ToF depth sensor for a more secure face unlock.
The rear camera department is quite similar across both devices with a 50MP Sony IMX 766 main module on both devices paired with a 64MP monochrome sensor and 13MP ultrawide lens. The Pro model also gets a 64MP telephoto module with 3.5x optical zoom and up to 100x digital zoom.
The IMAX partnership brings cinematic video recording capabilities supporting LOG format which Honor says leads to improvements in image quality and greater flexibility in post-production editing. The phones also support eight 3D LUT color grading profiles which further enhance your video content.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 Plus sits at the helm of the Magic3 Pro while the vanilla model sticks to the regular SD 888. The Pro gets up to 12GB RAM and 512GB storage while the Magic3 comes with 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. They pack 4,600 mAh batteries with 66W fast wired charging and 50W wireless top-ups on any compatible Qi charger. Magic3 has an IP54 water and dust rating while the Pro goes up to IP68. Both phones boot Magic UI 5 on top of Android 11 and Google Mobile Services.
Honor Magic3 comes in two designs and retails for €899. There’s the Golden Hour and Blue Hour models which boast synthetic leather while the classic Black and White options feature a more traditional glass back.
Magic3 Pro comes in Golden Hour, Black and White colors and goes for €1,099. Both phones launch in China first with global availability to be detailed later on.
