The Orbic Magic 5G is now available with TracFone. This is the first Orbic phone for a US carrier other than Verizon. According to the company, this "shows that Orbic is growing as brand into other channels." Orbic got its start in the US making entry-level phones for Verizon. The Orbic Myra 5G for Verizon launched recently and was the company's first mid-range phone, and first 5G phone. The Magic is identical to the Myra save for network frequency band support and the Snapdragon chipset inside. The Magic supports sub-6 5G and 4G on both the Verizon and T-Mobile networks, and uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 chipset. The Myra supports Verizon's mmWave "Ultra Wideband" 5G network, which required the higher-end Snapdragon 750G. The company confirmed this as the reason for the two different chipsets. Like the Myra, the Magic 5G has a 6.78-inch HD+ display, 5,000 mAh battery, 48 megapixel main camera, 8 megapixel wide camera, 6 GB RAM, 64 GB storage (expandable), and Quick Charge 3.0. TracFone is selling the Orbic Magic 5G for $300. Orbic is a brand of Reliance Communications.
Orbic (which is actually a brand of Reliance Communications) has been low-key making low-end phones for Verizon for a few years, but now they're ready to step into the spotlight with a much more interesting 5G phone, the Orbic Myra 5G. It is designed to be one of the more affordable 5G phones in Verizon's lineup, but this mid-range phone goes beyond the basics with a 48-megapixel main camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G chip, huge 5,000 mAh battery, and 18-watt fast charging. But what is it actually like in person? Read on to find out.
Verizon is now offering the Orbic Myra 5G, the first Orbic phone in the US with 5G, and the first with mid-range specs. Orbic has been offering entry-level phones for Verizon since late 2018, including two Android smartphones and one feature phone. The Myra offers both sub-6 and faster mmWave 5G which Verizon brands "Ultra Wideband". It should also support mid-band 5G (band 77 / C-Band) when Verizon launches that network. The Myra uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 750G chip, alongside 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage (expandable). It has a large 6.78-inch HD+ display and large 5,000 mAh battery. Other features include Android 11, a 48 megapixel main camera, 8 megapixel wide camera, 16 megapixel front camera, Quick Charge 3.0 (18-watt charger included), and a headset jack.
