#MWC24   Honor Magic6 Pro   Unboxing

So the glitz and glamour of a Live launch event have now finished. We have had some time to give the devices a look over on the stand in all the glory. Now however is the time to get up close and personal with the new Honor Magic6 Pro, in a more comfortable environment (my hotel room). So let’s have a look at what is in store with the unboxing.

As you can see we have got what looks like a pretty special device, I have to say I am so chuffed that Honor provided me with the Epi Green version as the colour just makes it stand out a little bit more from the crowd.

Let’s have a quick run around the device in closer details

Starting as always at the top, we find the top-mounted speaks, an IR blaster and a microphone pinhole#MWC24   Honor Magic6 Pro   Unboxing

Around on the right-hand side is where we can see the power switch which pulls double duty as an assistant prompt on a long press. Then we have the volume Rocker both are nicely positioned and nicely damped as well as giving solid feedback when pressed.#MWC24   Honor Magic6 Pro   Unboxing

Continuing around to the bottom we have the USB Type C 3.2 port that is flanked by the bottom speaker and the dual sim slot, we also have another mic port here as well.#MWC24   Honor Magic6 Pro   Unboxing

On the left-hand side, there is nothing to see apart from alone of the many antenna break lines which are spread about the phone.

Moving around the back is where we can find the bit that is going to interest a lot of people and this is the giant camera array that is housed on a bump, which to be fair is not that large in terms of depth and it doesn’t protrude from the back of the phone anywhere near as much as the ones that I have seen from competitors. Inside this camera array we have got 3 cameras;

  • 50MP (wide, f/1.4 – f/2.0, OIS, PDAF)
  • 50MP (ultrawide, f/2.0 AF)
  • 180MP (telephoto, f/2.6, 2.5x optical zoom)

On either side of the top sensor, we have the Dual tone flash to the left and the laser and sensor for the laser-assisted autofocus. For added measure the is also one more microphone port as well.#MWC24   Honor Magic6 Pro   Unboxing

If we continue around the front hen we have a dual camera cut-out at the top of the display that houses a 50MP camera and a Time of flight sensor for depth-sensing and biometrics. What is cool is also works as the Magic Capsule area which will show an actionable area for enhanced functionality when using certain apps i.e. media players as shown below.

This is the first time I have seen this on an Android device but iPhone users will be right at home here.

As for the main screen, this is a glorious 6.8-inch All-range Low-power LTPO Eye Comfort Display, that is coated with Honor NanoCrystal Sheild for protection. This coating will give up to 10 times the protection of regular nanocrystal glass when dropped and should offer a more scratch-resistant coating as well. This is all of course hidden under a pre-applied plastic screen protector. The screen will also be able to offer up to 5000 nits brightness when using HDR Content but it will use an average brightness in normal max condition of 1600 Nits which is still plenty bright enough as you saw from the video where I turned it up to the maximum settings. I have not had any issues seeing the screen in the sunshine that we have got poking through the clouds here in Barcelona#MWC24   Honor Magic6 Pro   Unboxing

As I had one lying around I thought I would also share some comparison shots of the phone next to an S23 Ultra which whilst not its direct competitor is a good representation of the size of the device etc.
