Now you see it, now you don’t

Now you see it, now you don’t
Here’s a gadget that David Blain would be proud of. Or…maybe not. In any case, the Huawei Honor Magic is definitely a one-of-a-kind handset in the smartphone market. The design itself can be separated from the rest, but the actual allure is in its built-in AI. Handling this phone will you make you realise what the future actually holds for technology and the gadgets we’ll be using on a regular basis.

Knock, knock. Who is it?

What exactly can this phone actually do? For one, simply by picking it up, its infrared sensors not only scan your face, but also your hands to verify that it’s actually you. And of course, there’s a fingerprint scanner built into the home button, just in case. To take things further and more secure, the only time the phone reveals notifications on your lock screen is when it has verified it’s you and no one else. Now you won’t have any issues with pesky family members or psycho exes wondering what you’re up to.

In capable hands

There’s also a new wonderful and useful feature that involves your GPS. The GPS meshes in with your calendar and other apps, in order for them to pop up exactly when you need them. For example, your itinerary pops up on your screen when you’ve arrived at the airport. Then, there is yet another, more practical use of the phone. If it’s dark, the phone will notify you with a flashlight option. Instead of automatically turning itself on, you have the option to turn it on and off; all it’s doing is lending you a helping hand. In other words, you’ll have an easier time with the quick pop-up rather than having to find it in your apps drawer.

Final thoughts

Call it magic or call it The Force, this is a phone that hasn’t been used to its full potential. A proper time and use of the phone will really determine that it isn’t just about gimmicks or experimental features. All we have now are the basics to work with. The phone will be releasing in China for now, with worldwide shipments in weeks to come.
