Honor Magic 3 release date, specs: Geekbench result suggests Snapdragon 888 will power the upcoming phone
The anticipated official launch of Honor Magic 3 is just a few days away, but leaks remain unstoppable. More recently, a Geekbench benchmark test result appeared online, possibly revealing what processing chip will power the device.
A benchmark test result taken on Tuesday was recently listed online. It used the Geekbench 4 platform and indicates that the test was done on an Honor-branded device with model ELZ-AN10, which reports speculate is going to be the Honor Magic 3.
The same document, spotted by MySmartPrice, has revealed a few technical specifications. The device will ship with Android 11 OS, 8GB RAM, and an eight-core processor identified as ARM SM8350. Several reports are claiming that the Honor Magic 3 will be powered by Snapdragon 888+.
However, it is worth noting that the 888+ chip’s part number is SM8350-AC, while the SM8350 belongs to the vanilla Snapdragon 888. One possible explanation is that the prototype tested on Aug. 3 may not be the final build of Honor Magic 3. But either of these SoCs should be enough to power the device. The same test showed that the phone performed with a 3,556 single-core score and 10,257 multi-core score.
Meanwhile, the same publication also shared screenshots of source codes that suggest the Honor Magic 3 could perform with up to 3.00GHz frequency. Adreno 660 was also referenced in the code. Note that the GPU is used on both Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 888+.
Twitter leaker Teme, who has had several accurate reports in the past, recently shared a rendered image that reportedly shows the Honor Magic 3 design. It appears to sport a curved screen with no bezels on the side and a hole-punched dual-camera for selfies.
The back of the device is something else, though. A round and massive camera bump appear to house five cameras and an LED flash.
The leaked Honor Magic 3 design may have been confirmed already after CEO George Zhao was seen using a device with five-camera holes during an event. The phone Zhao used appeared unfinished, though, but the placements of the rear-facing sensors and the flash match the render leaked by Teme. A launch event where Honor Magic 3 could be announced is expected on Aug. 12.
