A new leak has surfaced on Weibo that shows a video clip of the alleged Honor Magic 3 device. The video clip shows off that the device has dual selfie cameras. A pill-shaped camera module can be seen on the top left corner of the display, suggesting there are two cameras. The configuration of these cameras is unknown but we do expect to hear about them soon. Also, there is a significant distance between the two cameras. It is also assumed that there could be a ToF sensor as well for facial recognition.

Honor has scheduled an event to conduct for August 12 where it is expected to take the veil off the new Honor series. Not much is already known about the upcoming device, except the fact that it is powered by Snapdragon 888 Plus processor and it is going to be “better than Huawei’s P and Mate series,” well that’s what the company’s CEO has touted.
The rumor mill on the Magic 3 series, however, now looks to have started as a popular leakster has come up with render and few key specifications. According to Digital Chat Station on Weibo, the codename of the Honor Magic 3 is “Elizabeth.”
Reportedly, the TENAA certification platform also listed some phones with model numbers ELZ-AN20, ELZ-AN10, and ELZ-ANOO. These model numbers are the same that were recently tipped by a tipster named Teme.
Now, according to the latest leak that claims to offer the first look of the device through a render, the Magic 3 appears to have a different design. The render can be seen on the leaks aggregator site Slashleaks. There is a quad-rear camera setup that resides inside an unusual module. Overall, the Magic 3 looks to be featuring a curved metal body.

Ben Geskin, a concept designer has also shared a short clip in which the phone can be seen, followed by an image that clearly shows off the back panel of the alleged phone. As evident, the image shows “Matrix Camera” is written inside the camera module alongside the 48MP 1/1.5” | 100X Zoom.
It is tipped the screen will offer a high resolution of 2772x1344 pixels resolution. Also, the standard Magic 3 model is expected to ship with a 66W charger, while the higher models are likely to feature a 50W wireless charger and a 100W charger.
Well, we are still almost a month away from the said launch of the Magic 3. Let’s see what else we can learn till then.
