HONOR has just unveiled its latest Magic 6 Pro flagship smartphone for the global market, and we got our hands on it. Here are our first impressions!

Porsche Design HONOR Magic 6 RSR

After the launch of Magic V2 RSR in collaboration with Porsche Design, HONOR has now unveiled a new version of the Magic 6 in collaboration with them. In terms of design, the new Magic 6 RSR features Porsche’s signature hexagonal camera layout and a raised edge in the center for better grip. Made of titanium and available in two colors: Agate Gray (inspired by the Porsche 911) and Frozen Berry (inspired by the Porsche Taycan).

The Magic 6 RSR is also more durable than the standard variant, with IP68 dust and water resistance and HONOR’s own NanoCrystal Shield on both the front and back for extra glass protection. The camera setup has also been upgraded, with a 50MP HONOR Falcon Camera H9800 sensor that has better HDR compared to the standard version. There’s also a LiDAR Matrix Autofocus system for fast and accurate focusing, perfect for capturing fast-moving scenes.

But the biggest difference seems to be in the display. The HONOR Magic 6 RSR features the industry’s first dual-layer OLED tandem display. This screen can hold up better compared to a regular OLED panel with a 600 percent longer lifespan and offers brighter images with improved energy efficiency.

Apart from that, the Magic 6 RSR is a powerful smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, along with 1TB of internal storage and 24GB of RAM and a range of AI features on the device including support for HONOR’s Magic Portal. The RSR variant also has a larger 5600mAh battery, compared to 5450mAh in the standard edition, with faster 80W wired charging.
