Honor Launches Spring New Product Event with Two Flagship Smartphones

Honor held a spring new product launch last night, unveiling the Honor Magic6 Pro and Honor Magic6 RSR Porsche Design flagship smartphones, priced between 6999 yuan and 9999 yuan. As high-end products, they are set to challenge the iPhone 15 series and collaborate with the Huawei Mate60 series to reclaim the domestic market share. How do these two smartphones fare in terms of configurations, and can they pose a threat to their competitors?

Honor Magic6 and Porsche Design

Let’s first take a look at the Honor Magic6 Pro. Initially mistaken for the Porsche Design edition due to its camera module resembling the Porsche Design logo, the inspiration for the design comes from the “Qinghai Tianchi, with lakes like mirrors.” This model is available in two colors, Inkstone Black and Firmament Purple, with a thickness of 8.9mm and a weight of 227g, all equipped with a vegan leather finish.

Honor Magic6 Pro Features

Featuring a 6.8-inch OLED quad-curve display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 5000 nits peak brightness, covered with durable glass, boasting drop resistance surpassing even Huawei’s toughened Kunlun glass. The front camera is a 50-megapixel selfie shooter supporting 3D face unlock, while the rear setup consists of a 50-megapixel main camera, a 50-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a groundbreaking 180 million-pixel periscope telephoto lens, with a customized H9800 sensor for the main camera and a pioneering 1200-point laser radar autofocus system.

Honor Magic6 Pro Performance

Powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 processor, there haven’t been major performance changes. It houses a 5600mAh second-generation battery, supporting 80W wired charging and 66W wireless charging. Packed with features like infrared remote control, versatile NFC, symmetrical dual speakers, and pre-installed MagicOS 8.0, this model boasts IP68 dust and water resistance.

Honor Magic6 Pro Porsche Design

Turning to the Honor Magic6 RSR Porsche Design, this marks Honor’s first collaboration with Porsche Design to create a mainstream smartphone, featuring a hexagonal camera module for distinctive recognition. Despite the 8.9mm thickness, the weight is 237g due to the ceramic body, available in two versions: Ice Plum Pink and Agate Gray.

Honor Magic6 RSR Porsche Design Features

Similarly sporting a 6.8-inch OLED quad-curve screen with diamond-coated glass, but jointly developed with BOE to introduce the glare-free Oasis eye protection screen. The screen adopts a Tandem dual-stack OLED architecture, achieving a peak brightness of up to 5700 nits, a sixfold increase in lifespan, and a 40% reduction in power consumption, a technology currently unique to Honor in the industry.

The imaging system, performance, and battery life of the Honor Magic6 RSR Porsche Design are identical to the Honor Magic6 Pro, both supporting Hongyan satellite communication technology. The differences lie in the screen, storage, and design, with the Porsche Design edition priced slightly higher through the collaboration, offering minor actual distinctions.
