Honor Magic specifications and price are official


We recently learned Huawei would be unleashing the Honor Magic, but we weren’t quite sure how magical it would be. The Honor Magic specifications and price are finally official and so is it’s magical virtual assistant.

The Honor Magic is a sleek handset with a design that will help it stand out in the crowd. That is far from the only trick it has up its sleeve though as it also sports a virtual assistant and software dubbed Honor Magic Live. That combined with their smart services can give you recommendations on things you are interested in or do simpler tasks like launch into certain modes when needed. The home button will come into play as well as will a special sensor on the frame.

While the Honor Magic specifications are sound, the software is what makes it unique. FaceCode is part of the equation as it will recognize your “hands and eyes” which means only you will see certain information through notifications. It also offers up a “hold to wake” function of sorts by turning on the screen when you pick it up or going dark when it goes into your pocket. There are several other cool tricks, but now we’re going to delve into the Honor Magic specs.
