HONOR announces launch date of the Magic 3 series, hints at large camera sensor
- HONOR just announced the official launch date of the HONOR Magic 3 series: August 12, 2021.
- The invitation hints at a very large camera sensor.
- HONOR previously hinted that a phone in the Magic series would have the Snapdragon 888 chipset, so we can expect this to be that phone.
Today, though, we finally got word on when we might see a bonafide premium flagship from HONOR. The company sent out invitations for an event on August 12, 2021, in which it specifically calls out the HONOR Magic 3 series. This would be the first Magic phone since 2018’s Magic 2.
Check out the invite here:
The image included with the invite is obviously a large camera sensor. It’s reasonable to assume that there will be some premium camera hardware included with HONOR Magic 3 phones.
The invitation doesn’t give any other info about the phones. However, the company previously hinted that it would launch a Magic-branded device with “the most premium Qualcomm chipset.” That could be nothing less than the Snapdragon 888 — or even the just-announced Snapdragon 888 Plus. With one of those under the hood and some premium camera gear, the HONOR Magic 3 would be a real powerhouse.
We’ll need to wait until August 12 to know anything for sure, but this phone could be the comeback kid HONOR needs after breaking away from HUAWEI.
