Thanks to the new proprietary RF enhancement chip, HONOR C1+, the Honor Magic6 series achieves a significant breakthrough in antenna performance, with a maximum transmission gain increase of 41% and a reception gain increase of 51%. This ensures a smooth experience in areas with weak signals, such as basements and subways, where frequent signal switching occurs.

Honor Magic6 Satellite Communication

The new direct satellite communication technology significantly reduces the satellite chip’s overall size by nearly 40%, enabling real-time voice communication and two-way messaging. With faster satellite connectivity and lower power consumption, the Honor Magic6 Pro can sustain 8 minutes of real-time voice communication or send 16 two-way text messages on just a 5% battery charge.

Honor Magic6 Display Technology

The new screen light-gathering technology allows the Honor Magic6 to reach a peak brightness of 5000nits, enhancing visibility in bright outdoor light and providing superior contrast and detail in HDR video playback. The series supports Dolby Vision and HDR Vivid for an authoritative display experience and is the first in the Android sector to introduce full-range low power consumption LTPO display technology with a 1Hz ultra-low refresh rate.

In addition, the Honor Magic6 series supports five advanced eye protection technologies, including ultra-high frequency 4320Hz PWM dimming and natural color display. The screen material, Honor’s proprietary Rhinoceros Glass, has improved crystal density by 50% and has passed Swiss SGS five-star anti-fall certification under multiple scenarios.

Powering the series is the second-generation Qinghai Lake battery, enhanced by Honor’s own energy efficiency chip HONOR E1. This brings the battery capacity up to 5450mAh for the Magic6 and 5600mAh for the Magic6 Pro, with support for up to 66W and 80W wired fast charging, and 50W and 66W wireless charging, respectively. The series has also seen a 70% improvement in the freedom and range of wireless charging.
