Honor recently announced that it was bringing over its new Magic6 Lite to buyers in the UK, which will be available for £349.99 (or roughly $445). The phone is engineered for mid-range buyers, with a set of hardware and software features that don’t necessarily compromise on performance.
Up front you’ll find a curved display that measures 6.78 inches, which Honor says has been designed to withstand drops and bumps. It’s an impressive display thanks to its 120Hz refesh rate, a sharp 2652×1200 resolution, as well as a peak brightness of 1,200 nits. In terms of design, it’s pretty standard-looking with a large camera module on the rear panel, a common design trait on most Chinese smartphones. It does come with IP53 certification, which is a much-welcome feature.
For imaging and video, the phone does include a trio of cameras which consist of a 108MP (f/1.75) main camera, a 5MP (f/2.2) Ultra-Wide Camera, and a 2MP (f/2.4) Macro Camera. Selfies and video calls are handled by a 16MP front-facing shooter.
Inside, the Magic6 Lite is powered by the 4nm Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chipset, which is Qualcomm’s go-to SoC for entry to mid-level Android phones. This works alongside 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, which for the price is acceptable. The phone runs on a 5,300 mAh battery with support for 35W fast charging speeds, another common feature on similarly-priced midrange smartphones.
For software, the phone features Android 13 layered with Honor’s own MagicOS user interface, although it would’ve been nice to see Android 14 onboard. Interested buyers in the UK can check out the Magic6 Lite in select retailers and carriers later this month.
