Honor has launched its latest 50-series smartphones today (June 16, 2021) as premium mid-rangers, which might make some fans wonder where the flagship counterpart has got to. However, the brand's CEO also confirmed that this device, the Magic 3, is on its way. It is now slated to debut in the third quarter of 2021 with the top-end Snapdragon 888 processor.

Honor's 2021 product release plans are right on track with today's launch of the 50 SE, 50 and 50 Pro. The company's CEO, Zhao Ming, also took some time during this event to announce that its successors will be a yearly thing, as will the X and Play lines going forward.

They consist of typically mid- and low-tier devices, which means they leave a gap at the top end for Honor's mobile offerings. Zhao Ming has affirmed that the Magic 3 will take this role on in 2021. Phones of its name were often endowed with experimental features back when the brand was owned by Huawei; however, it now plans to apply the name to its "ultimate" smartphones.

Therefore, the Magic 3 is now intended to be Honor's Snapdragon 888 vehicle (and not the 50 Pro+ as rumored previously). Not much else is known about its specs at present, although it is rumored to be joined in its series by a foldable variant called the Magic X, a book-like phablet with display panels supplied by BOE and/or Visionox.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
