HONOR Magic 6 Pro Hands-on Review

HONOR just unveiled its latest Magic 6 Pro flagship smartphone for global markets, and we’ve been hands on. Here are our first impressions!

Porsche Design HONOR Magic 6 RSR

Following the launch of Magic V2 RSR in collaboration with Porsche Design, HONOR has now unveiled a new version of the Magic 6 in collaboration with them. In terms of design, the new Magic 6 RSR features Porsche’s signature hexagonal camera layout and a raised ridge down the center for better grip. Made from titanium, it comes in two colors: Agate Grey (inspired by the Porsche 911) and Frozen Berry (inspired by the Porsche Taycan).

The Magic 6 RSR is also more durable than the standard variant, featuring IP68 dust and water resistance, and HONOR’s proprietary NanoCrystal Shield on both front and back for added glass protection. The camera setup is upgraded as well, with a main 50MP HONOR Falcon Camera H9800 sensor that has better HDR compared to the standard version. There’s also a LiDAR Matrix Autofocus System for fast and accurate focus, perfect for capturing fast-moving scenes.

But the biggest difference seems to be in terms of the display. The HONOR Magic 6 RSR features the industry’s first dual-layer OLED Tandem Display. This display can hold up better in comparison to a regular OLED panel with a 600 percent longer lifespan and offers brighter visuals with improved power efficiency.

Other than that, the Magic 6 RSR is a power-packed smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, along with 1TB of internal storage and 24GB of RAM and a suite of on-device AI features, including support for HONOR’s Magic Portal. The RSR variant also has a bigger 5600 mAh battery, compared to 5450 mAh on the standard edition, with faster 80W wired charging. HONOR plans to make the Magic 6 RSR available worldwide in the second quarter of 2024.

HONOR says it drew inspiration from luxury car interiors for the Magic 6 Ultimate’s design.

Like other versions, it runs on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset with built-in AI capabilities. However, there is one feature that is exclusive to the Magic 6 Ultimate and that is the dual-directional satellite communication feature. However, for now, the Magic 6 Ultimate will only be available in the Chinese market.

Following its debut of the MagicBook Pro 16 at MWC 2024, HONOR has now formally introduced the laptop alongside the new Magic 6 series phones. The MagicBook Pro 16 runs on an Intel Core Ultra 7 155H processor and is equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop GPU.
