Honor launched the Magic 6 back in January and later followed it up with the Magic 6 Pro in February. Now the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is once again reiterating the phone. In this article, we will be discussing the newly launched Honor Magic 6 Ultimate Edition in greater detail including its expected price in Nepal.

Honor Magic 6 Ultimate Edition Overview

Design and Display

One of the obvious differences this variant of Honor Magic 6 has is in the design. While the vanilla Magic 6 and the Pro variant came with a somewhat octagonal camera island. The Honor Magic 6 Ultimate Edition has a squircle camera module with curved glass and lines connected at the top left and bottom right edges. Additionally, the smartphone comes with IP68 dust and water resistance, while boasting a leather finish on the back. It is available in Sky Purple, and Ink Black colour options.

On the front, it has an OLED screen stretching 6.80 inches diagonally and comes with Rhino glass protection. The screen maintains a 19.69:9 aspect ratio while spanning 1,280 x 2,800 pixels ensuring an FHD+ resolution. Furthermore, you get an adaptive refresh rate of 1–120Hz, 4,320Hz PWM dimming, and a DCI-P3 wide colour gamut with 1.07 billion colour support.


In terms of performance, the Honor Magic 6 Ultimate Edition has the same chipset as its other counterpart. That being said, it packs the 2024 Qualcomm flagship processor i.e. Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for its computing duties. It comes in 4nm fabrication while boasting one prime Cortex-X4 clocking in 3.3 GHz.

Other than that, this smartphone comes with a higher memory and storage configuration in comparison to the titular phone and the pro variant. Specifically, it ships in a sole 16 GB memory option. Meanwhile, you can choose between 512GB and 1TB for the storage on the Honor Magic 6 Ultimate Edition. On the software side of things, this phone boots on MagicOS 8.0 based on Android 14.

Camera and the rest

Cameras were one of the highlighting features of the Honor Magic 6 smartphones — the trend continues in the Ultimate Edition as well. You get a 50MP primary Falcon camera H9800 sensor and optical image stabilisation capability. In addition to that, the phone has another 50MP shooter handling the ultrawide shots. Meanwhile, the largest resolution camera remains the 180MP periscope telephoto camera specialising in portrait shots.

In the tank, you get a 5,600 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery with 80W wired charging support. You also get a 66W wireless charging support on the Honor Magic 6 Ultimate Edition. Moving on to wireless connectivity, you get dual SIM 5G cellular, WiFi 7, Bluetooth v5.3, NFC, and four-way navigation.
