Perhaps the only smartphone that truly lives up to its name is the Huawei Honor Magic. Some of its innovative features are something that has never been seen before. In other words, the Honor Magic is so magical that might as well be a device straight out of the future.
What makes the Honor Magic so magical is the artificial intelligence integrated on the device. The AI, according to CNET, allows the smartphone to be smarter than any other device right now. It responds to physical sensors allowing the Honor Magic to know where it is and recognize the person closest to it. The smartphone can also determine what that person is doing and what he or she will do next.
Forbes cited some examples as to how smart this smartphone and its Magic Live UI can be. If the user likes to listen to Spotify every morning while heading to work, the Honor Magic will eventually change the lock screen shortcut icons to include the Spotify icon. Also, the user can make the handset show notifications on the lock screen once it recognizes the user's face. This is possible because the Huawei Honor Magic utilizes a front-facing infrared camera as well as a tracking algorithm for the eyes and face to "memorize" the face of the user.
Aside from being magically smart, the Honor Magic also looks good and does other functions well. It comes in golden black or porcelain white, sports a 5-inch display with 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, and is powered by a 2,3GHz octa-core Huawei Kirin CPU. The Honor Magic also has 4GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage, and a 2900mAh battery with a quick charge. The battery can charge up to 70 percent in just 20 minutes. The Honor Magic also has a single home button at the front, a 12MP dual-lens rear camera and an 8MP front-facing one.
The Huawei Honor Magic debuted back in January at the CES 2017 and instantly made some noise. In fact, it was considered one of the best smartphones introduced at the popular tech show along with the likes of the Huawei Mate 9, Blackberry Mercury, Nokia 6 and the Asus Zenfone AR. The Huawei Honor Magic is already available in China and will be made available in U.S. and other parts of the world but there's no word yet as to when exactly that will be.
