Design and Display

Despite offering two models, the standard Magic6 matches the Pro in core features. Differences lie mainly in imaging, design, and face unlock technology. Both models share the same robust performance capabilities. The Honor Magic6 series continues the Eye of Muse family aesthetic. This time, the design incorporates elements of Chinese culture and landscapes. The camera module, inspired by the Sanxingdui jade cong, also features pillow-shaped elements. The phones come in four colors – Qilian Snow, Haihu Green, Mailang Green, and Liuyun Purple – each representing a Chinese natural landmark. Customers can choose between glass and plain leather finishes, with an additional velvet black AG glass option.

The front design distinguishes the two models. The Magic6 features a single-hole central screen, while the Pro has a double-hole screen akin to the Honor 100 Pro, complete with 3D face recognition. Both models sport almost identical specifications. The Magic6 has a 6.78-inch micro-curved screen with a 2800×1264 resolution, and the Pro features a 6.8-inch quad-curved screen with a 2800×1280 resolution. Both displays offer a 453 PPI, support LTPO 1~120Hz dynamic adjustment, and feature 4320Hz ultra-high frequency PWM dimming for eye comfort.


The series boasts Honor Jurhino Glass, leveraging second-generation nano-glass-ceramic technology for 50% increased crystal density, 20% more storage stress, and 30% better drop resistance. This makes them highly durable across various surfaces. Performance-wise, both models use the third-generation Snapdragon 8 processor, enhanced with GPU Turbo and AI technologies for improved gaming frame rates and visuals, rivaling the iPhone15 Pro Max’s Metal FX.

The Magic6 series showcases the SLR-level Eagle Eye camera system, featuring OV’s custom 50-megapixel H9000 sensor that provides an industry-leading dynamic range. Moreover, the Magic6 series integrates a trio of cameras: a 50-megapixel main camera, a 32-megapixel telephoto, and a 50-megapixel macro camera. Additionally, the Pro model elevates the main camera experience with an F1.4-F2.0 variable aperture. It also introduces a groundbreaking 180-megapixel periscope telephoto lens, boasting a large 1/1.49-inch sensor.

Battery life is exceptional, thanks to the second-generation Qinghai Lake battery and Jiangyan power management system. The Magic6 has a 5450mAh battery with 66W wired and 50W wireless charging, while the Pro offers a 5600mAh battery with 80W wired and 66W wireless charging capabilities.

A standout feature of the Magic 6 Pro is Honor Hongyan Communication, which supports two-way satellite communication for reliable connectivity in remote locations. Honor’s C1+ radio frequency chip and gold satellite antenna enable faster satellite connections than the Huawei Mate 60 Pro. Running on the new MagicOS 8.0, the series introduces advanced AI capabilities and human-computer interaction with intent recognition. The Honor Any Door feature allows seamless cross-application access.


Pricing for the Magic6 starts at 4,399 yuan (about $619) for the 12G+256GB model, 4,699 yuan (about $661) for 16+256GB, and 4,999 yuan (about $703) for 16+512GB. The Magic6 Pro starts at 5,699 yuan (about $802) for 12G+256GB, 6,199 yuan (about $872) for 16+512GB, and 6,699 yuan (about $942) for 16GB+1TB.
