Honor may have been relatively quiet lately, but that should change with the release of two new models under the Honor Magic 3. Here’s everything we know so far about what smartphones will contain.
It was recently confirmed on the Honor Twitter feed that the official launch date for the new phones is August 12, 2021… It’s also a global launch, which is encouraging as previous Magic phones have not made it to Western markets.

Honor has also pledged a global launch of the Honor 50, which has already been unveiled in China but has yet to announce an exact release date or price for international markets – although it might be revealed alongside the Magic 3.
How much will the Honor Magic 3 cost?
There is no official information on what you will need to buy one of the new models, but we have a rough idea thanks to the Chinese site My Drivers. He reported that the Honor Magic 3 will be priced at ¥ 4,000, which equates to roughly £ 450 / $ 616 / € 525, while the Honor Magic 3 Pro will cost ¥ 5,000 (£ 561 / $ 770 / € 654). …
If these prices are correct, then the standard Honor Magic 3 is directly competing with the likes of the OnePlus 8T, Nubia Red Magic 6 and Moto G100.
If you like the Pro model, then it will have to prove its worth against rivals like the Realme X50 Pro, OnePlus 9 and Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, which are available for about the same price.
What are the characteristics of the Honor Magic 3?
Again, since the release date is so close, Honor has confirmed very little in terms of the specs it will bring to new smartphones. But don’t worry, as various technical consultants have provided a lot of information.
Honor itself has confirmed that the Magic 3 phones will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus processor. This could make Honor phones the first devices to feature the new silicon.
In their teasers on Twitter, Honor is focusing heavily on the camera technology that will be used in Magic 3 devices.

As you can see, there is an interesting large lens that Honor is especially proud of in new phones. More light is shed on this in the image appearing in the My Drivers report, which shows a large primary optics paired with a three-in-a-row lens configuration located directly below it. Here is:
The Chinese site also states that the Honor Magic 3 will be equipped with a periscope telephoto lens that supports zoom up to x100, while the main camera is expected to have excellent long-distance and low-light capabilities. It has been speculated that the large lens will be a Pro exclusive, but nothing has been confirmed so far.
It is likely that the standard model will come with four cameras on the back, but it will lack the periscope as Honor will have to differentiate the devices.
A short promo video for the phone posted on Weibo confirms the presence of a dual selfie camera on the front of at least one of the two models, although instead of an ultra-wide camera, this could mean one regular camera lens and a 3D ToF sensor next to it for superior recognition persons. and portrait selfies.
The Pro may also have a front-facing camera that is hidden under the display, making it the first on the market again. It also keeps the front panel running smoothly, which is rumored to be Full HD +.
As for other features, we’ve seen rumors of 12GB of storage and 66W fast charging (wired and wireless) on the standard model, with 100W fast charging and 50W fast wireless charging on the Pro.
In terms of design, you’ve seen the unusual rear end design above, but expect to find more colorful options as well. Honor CEO George Zhao has confirmed that the phone will also be released in colors called Blue Hour and Golden Hour – presumably alongside the black / gray shown above – which were supposedly inspired by the photographic concept of the “magic hour”.
Importantly, we can also expect the Magic 3 to launch with full support for Google Play services globally, as since the Huawei Honor is now available to work directly with Google and has already promised Google support on the Honor 50.
The Honor Magic 3 phones are intriguing and we can’t wait to take a look at these cameras to see what they’re really capable of. Keep coming back to this page as we will update the article as more information becomes available.
