Honor yesterday announced that it will introduce Magic, its first concept smartphone on December 16th. A new image has appeared online of the rumoured Honor Magic and shows off the front display of the device as someone is setting up the fingerprint scanner on the device. It’s not much but the promotional material for the Honor event has some interesting imagery. The company did not reveal any details about the upcoming smartphone. Honor CEO George Zhao on said “In addition to enhancing the quality and specifications, we need even more Honor from the heart”.
Myth and legend will have you believe the smartphone will come with a 6-inch bezel-less screen and a metal frame. According to an image shared by Huawei fan club, the phone has minimal bezels on the sides, but there is a slim bezel on the top, unlike the Xiaomi Mi MIX.
Twitter leakster @rquandt has dug up some interesting info on the possible specs and described the device as a pimped Honor 8. Words that could not sound more encouraging.
Honor “Magic” is likely codenamed “Natasha”. A pimped Honor 8. China model# NTS-AL00. Same 12 MP dual cam as Honor 8. 40W! supercharger

The Honor Magic has now been leaked online as a user has posted an image on weibo from the device front panel with the phone user trying to setup the fingerprint scanner of the phone. Some have called this a fake image however the stylings do seem to match the rumoured bezel details, and some bigger site have removed their original articles hosting the image. One thing we can be sure of, that is a shocking shade of pink nail polish!
We should get more teasers from Honor in the coming days before the Honor Magic goes official next Friday. We can’t wait!
