Honor returns to the flagship segment with the Magic3 trio.The series’ top dog, the Honor Magic3 Pro+, joins the vanilla and Pro models.Also, it has four large-sensor cameras and shares its screen and internals with its siblings.
The Magic3 Pro+ has a 6.67” Flex OLED with 89-degree side curvatures and a 120Hz refresh rate.Honor used a “Nano Crystal Shield” that is three times tougher than typical protective panels, unlike the other two Magic 3 phones.
Most of the Pro+’s upgrades were made to the hexagon camera setup.Instead of IMX766, Honor used a 50MP Sony IMX700 1/1.28” sensor with 1.22um pixels.It has a 23mm f/1.9 lens and Full Pixel Octa PD AutoFocus (PDAF).
The ultrawide camera has a 1/2″ 64MP sensor and f/2.4 aperture, compared to the other Magic3 devices.The Magic3 Pro also has a 64MP f/1.8 monochrome camera and a 64MP telephoto lens with 3.5x optical zoom.The fifth camera cutout is for an 8×8 dTOF.
The pill-shaped punch hole front camera has a 100-degree field of view and a ToF sensor.While the design is reminiscent of the Huawei Mate 40 Porsche Design, we can’t blame Honor for taking inspiration from its once-mighty parent company.The device looks great and has a tough Nano Ceramic back panel.
The rest of the specs are carried over from the Magic3 Pro – IP68 water and dust resistance, Snapdragon 888+ chipset, IMAX Enhanced video editing tools, and 66W SuperCharge charging for the 4,600 mAh battery.
The Magic Pro+ runs Magic UI 5 on top of Android 11, but there was no mention of Google services on stage, as the phone is first going to China.
The Honor Magic3 Pro+ only has 12/512 GB memory.It costs €1,499 in either Ceramic Black or Ceramic White.The phone’s global rollout is expected later.
