Rumors of the flagship Honor Magic 3 line are appearing on the net more and more often. This is not surprising, because the announcement is just around the corner and we want to see what interesting and unusual this time the company will offer in the new series of devices. Recently, a leaked photo appeared on the network showing the Honor Magic 3.
The snapshot confirms that the smartphone will receive a design in the style of the Huawei Mate 40 with its massive and round main camera unit. It is impossible to count the number of sensors due to the poor image quality, but the source is talking about the presence of five of them. The 100x inscription clearly indicates that one of the features of Honor Magic 3 will be support for 100x digital zoom.
The company has already officially confirmed that the Honor Magic 3 will receive the Snapdragon 888+ chipset and it appears that this will be the first smartphone with it on board. The device will run the proprietary shell Magic UI 5.0, which borrowed a number of features from HarmonyOS. We expect that the smartphone will receive a waterproof design and an OLED display with increased hertz.
The greatest emphasis should take place on software and all kinds of software optimizations. Much attention is on artificial intelligence; which will be responsible for a number of operations to improve the comfort and convenience of working with a smartphone.
American politicians ask to bring Honor under sanctions
On Friday, a group of 14 Republican politicians sent a letter to the US Department of Commerce; asking for the Chinese company Honor to be on the black list. It was spun off from Huawei in November last year; to keep it from export restrictions imposed on the parent company. According to American politicians, the Honor division has not resolved the issue of protecting American technology from leaks into the hands of the Chinese.
Members of the US House of Representatives sent a request to the Department of Commerce. These are representatives of the junior US legislature, whose opinion is taken into account, but will not be decisive. The Ministry replied that they are closely monitoring the situation and are constantly evaluating candidates for export restrictions. If included in the list of restrictions, such companies (today, mainly Chinese) are prohibited from purchasing American-made components; or manufactured using American technologies, as well as software.
So, Huawei becomes under U.S. export restrictions in May 2019. In addition, to keep its Honor brand and smartphone business alive; the division now belongs to a consortium of 30 companies and financial institutions. By becoming independent from Huawei, Honor has proven that it can grow well on its own. Earlier this year, Honor had contracts to purchase parts from Qualcomm and Intel, which it could not do with Huawei. In this, Republican politicians see direct evidence of Honor’s deliberate withdrawal from US sanctions. And since this was on purpose, then the ban must continue.
