Thanks to Gizmochina, we now know that the Huawei Magic is not a farce and is indeed a real phone, I must admit I had my misgivings when I first heard of the phone.But on Gizmochina’s website, there are what appears to be pictures of a very curved phone.In fact, it’s supposedly curved on all 8 sides!!!
The curved symmetry is so much so that, the SIM card slot, speakers, microphone, as well as the charging ports are located at the bottom of the smartphone.This is according to Weibo picture below;
Back-12MP monochrome + black & white sensor module with F2.2
Dual Temparature Flash
Video Capture-FHD 1080P, 720P 120FPS slow motion camera, delay photography

Packing list-Phone X 1, Battery (built-in) X 1, Quick Guide X 1, 5V /. 8A Fast Charger X 1, three bags of documents X 1, 5V /. 8A dedicated data line X 1, poke a needle cartridge X 1, protective shell X 1
Fast Charge Squad will be happy to note that Huawei Honor Magic comes with the superfast charging technology which charges the phone up to 90% in just 30 minutes of charging.
Launches with Android 6.0 (bummer)
Also introduced is a new software called Magic Live which is said to be very User-Friendly.In fact, some of the highlighted features are:
When you have the phone in your hand, it will make a note of this and whenever you get a call, it will just vibrate and not ring.
The phone can automatically light up the screen when you look at it as the Honor Magic can keep a track of your eyes.
The Honor Magic can recognise its owner. So, if there’s a new message, you can see the details of the message, but if anyone else takes a look at it, the phone will not reveal the details on the screen.
If you are in the dark, the Honor Magic will sense this automatically and recommend flashlight app on the screen.
Magic Live can bring up some useful information even while you are chatting. For example, if you someone asks you, where are you? the phone will offer the option to share your current location. Similarly, if you are chatting about your current weather, details about the same will be provided to you. Even if you talk about the weather of a different city, for example, Beijing or Shenzhen, the Honor Magic’s Live system is smart enough to bring you details about the same.
Booking a movie ticket is super easy with its smart software. The magic live system can intelligently recommend current movies.If you are talking about movies in the chat. Also, if you are talking about booking, it can bring up relevant information as well as help in booking the ticket.
If you have an unknown number calling you, the software is smart enough to bring you details about its previous history, if any.
The smart software can also classify unread emails as promotions/advertisements / bills/meetings etc, based on the content of the mail. It can also create smart schedules for events that pop up via SMS or WeChat.
The Magic Live is also a smart shopper. When you are about to shop on your smartphone, the phone will automatically show you the lowest price along with price comparisons among different shopping platforms. After you shop, it will smartly help you to store the tracking information in your ‘My Favorites’ page.
If you want to get details about a particular travel destination, the Magic Live helps in that as well, by bringing you relevant pictures, reviews, weather etc. And you won’t have to type a single thing as the assistant analyses specific keywords such as ‘how about we travel to xx place’ to sense that relevant travel information has to be brought up on the screen.
There’s even a Magic Auto which is in development (evolutionary version only) which will simply use the phone while driving your car.
Finally, it learns from you as you use it and becomes smarter at helping around in your daily tasks.
This reminds me a lot of Google Assistant but I could be wrong as the implementation has yet to be tested.
Pricing for the Phone is estimated at 3699 Yuan which according to Google comes to about USD 531.89 and is available Today December 16 at the following Online Stores:
No information is available on when this Device will be available in other parts of the world.It certainly has its merits and shows that Huawei is not a sleeping Dog and is quietly striving to be the best in the Business.
