Huawei has unveiled its love for curves by announcing the Honor Magic smartphone, with 5.09-inch AMOLED QHD screen, curved glass front and back, Kirin 950 SoC and rear dual-camera setup.

Measuring 146.1x69.9x7.8mm and weighing 145g, the new Honor Magic has been teased by Huawei for a while, calling it the "concept" smartphone, which is something taken from the Xiaomi book. Nevertheless, it still comes with enough new features to justify its concept tease.

Featuring a 5.09-inch AMOLED QHD 2560x1440 resolution screen (adding up to 577ppi), placed behind a curved glass, makes the Honor Magic a mere 7.8mm thick, which is not bad. The heart of the Honor Magic is Huawei's own Kirin 950 SoC with octa-core CPU part featuring four Coretax-A72 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz, Mali-T880 MP4 GPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

It also comes with a 2,900mAh battery that can get 90 percent charge in half an hour, 70 percent in 20 minutes and 40 percent in 10 minutes, thanks to Huawei Magic Power charger.

Huawei also equipped the Honor Magic with a dual 12-megapixel main camera (color and monochrome) with f/2.2 aperture and 1.4µm pixels as well as an 8-megapixel front camera.

Huawei Honor Magic runs on Android 6.0 OS with Honor Magic Live OS on top of it and also features the DeepThink, a digital assistant with FaceCode, which uses an infrared camera to recognize users’ eyes or a fingerprint reader below the front home key.

Unfortunately, the Huawei Honor Magic also comes with a premium price tag of CNY 3,700, which converts to roughly US $530 or €500, and it is unknown if it will become available outside of China.
