$1439! Honor Magic6 Porsche Edition Launches, Teaming Up With Huawei to Take on Apple?

Honor Launches Spring New Product Release Event

Last night, Honor held a spring new product launch event, introducing two flagship phones: the Honor Magic6 Supreme Edition and the Honor Magic6 RSR Porsche Design, priced between 6999 yuan and 9999 yuan. As high-end products, they are set to challenge the iPhone 15 series and join forces with the Huawei Mate60 series to reclaim the domestic market share. How do these two phones compare in terms of specifications, and can they pose a threat to their competitors?

Let’s start with the Honor Magic6 Supreme Edition. This phone was initially mistaken for the Porsche Design version because the camera module looks so much like the Porsche Design logo. The official explanation cites inspiration from the “Qilian Tianchi, with lakes as clear as mirrors.” Available only in two colors, Rock Ink Black and Sky Purple, with a thickness of 8.9mm and a weight of 227 grams, the entire series features a plain leather finish.

On the front, it features a 6.8-inch OLED quad-curved screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, 5000 nits peak brightness, covered with a diamond-like toughened glass that boasts surpassing Huawei’s Xuanwu toughened Kunlun glass in drop resistance. It has a 50-megapixel front-facing selfie camera supporting 3D face unlock, and a rear camera setup consisting of a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 180-million-pixel periscope telephoto lens. The main camera uses a custom H9800 sensor and is the first in the industry to feature a 1200-point laser radar array focusing system.

Powered by the Snapdragon 8Gen3 processor, the performance remains largely unchanged. It houses a 5600mAh second-generation Qinghai Lake battery, supports 80W wired charging, and 66W wireless charging. It comes with features like infrared remote control, versatile NFC, symmetrical dual speakers, and comes pre-installed with MagicOS 8.0. This phone boasts IP68 dust and water resistance.

Moving on to the Honor Magic6 RSR Porsche Design, this is Honor’s first collaboration with Porsche Design to create a standard phone, featuring a hexagonal camera module for distinctive identification. Although it also has an 8.9mm thickness, it weighs a heavy 237 grams due to its use of a ceramic body. This phone comes in two versions: Ice Plum Pink and Agate Grey.

The front features a 6.8-inch OLED quad-curved screen, covered with a diamond-like toughened glass, but with a jointly developed DFO eye protection screen with glare oasis. The screen utilizes a Tandem dual-stack series OLED architecture, achieving a peak brightness of up to 5700 nits, increasing lifespan by 6 times and reducing power consumption by 40%. Honor is currently the only one in the industry to implement this technology.

Both the imaging system, performance, and battery life of the Honor Magic6 RSR Porsche Design are identical to the Honor Magic6 Supreme Edition. Both phones also support Hongyan satellite communication technology. The difference lies in the screen, storage, and design, with the Honor Magic6 RSR Porsche Design having a slightly higher price due to the co-branding, but the actual differences are minimal.

What do you think, folks? Are the prices of the Honor Magic6 RSR Porsche Design and the Honor Magic6 Supreme Edition attractive?
