- Huawei to launch Honor Magic concept phone today.
- The highlight of the device is a bezel-less, edge-to-edge display.
- The device may feature a modular design.
Xiaomi's bezel-less, edge-to-edge Mi Mix was hailed as one of the most interesting concepts of 2016. Now, just before the year ends, it already has some competition coming from Huawei, or at least that's what we are made to believe. After a no-show on December 7, Huawei is all set to unveil the Honor Magic concept phone today. The device is slated for a China launch, but there is no word on it coming to other regions.
The USP of the device is said to be the bezel-less design with an edge-to-edge display. The leaks coming in suggest a rather large phablet, probably 6-inch, and allegedly curved screen on all four sides.
On the design front, it is touted to feature a uni-body metal design. Reports suggest a modular design, an approach companies (read Google, LG) have decided rather not to follow, with detachable peripherals like camera and speaker. So, it is quite possible the device has taken cues from other modular phones such as Moto Z and LG G5. Some other reports suggest a dual camera and NFC support.
However, there is no word on these detachable peripherals yet, or other specifications of the device. But, the concept of launching a base variant sans peripherals sounds interesting, if not practical. The battery technology is touted to be graphene-assisted for quick and effective charging.
The leaked price is RMB 9,999, which roughly translates to a whopping Rs 97,000. Watch out the space for more details.
