Honor is back in service and is starting a new entry into the market. At the moment, it has curtailed the announcements of entry-level and focused on the middle and top segments. Next in line is the release of Honor Magic 3, which will become the flagship and the next exhibition of the company’s achievements. There have been speculations that the device will be the company’s first foldable device, but the render available online indicates that the phone has a normal design.
We were shown a smartphone with a fashionable curved display with minimal indents at the ends. There are no traces for the front camera, so the Honor Magic 3 may offer a sub-screen selfie module.
The main camera platform is impressive in size and is designed for three image sensors, as well as an LED flash. The main sensor is especially large and, perhaps, it is an inch sensor, which debuted in the Sharp Aquos R6. There will be a periscope module for creating zoomed images, and it can also be assumed that a wide-angle sensor will complete the ensemble of sensors.
About the characteristics of Honor Magic 3, we only know that it should receive a Snapdragon 888 or Snapdragon 888+ chip; and a GSM version of Android with Google services will be avilable.
