Honor Magic 4 Pro officially presented at the MWC in Barcelona
Honor officially presented the new Magic 4 series at the MWC in Barcelona today. We have all the information about the Honor Magic 4 for you in the following lines Pro summarized.
The Magic 4 series consists of the regular Magic 4 and the 4 Pro together. In Germany, however, only the first Pro-Variant appear.
The Honor Magic 4 Pro is definitely not a small smartphone. It measures 163,6 x 74,7 x 9,1mm and weighs 215 grams. The device is IP68 certified against ingress of water and dust and will be available in black, white, gold, green and orange colors. While orange is made of vegan leather, the other colors are made of glass. Honor adopts the so-called "Eye of Muse" camera design from the predecessor, which captures the built-in lenses in a large black circle.
Honor relies on a system consisting of three cameras: a 50 MP main camera, a 50 MP wide-angle camera and a 64 MP 3,5x periscope camera. The Sony IMX766 is used again as the main sensor, which measures 1/1.56″ and unfortunately is again not optically stabilized. That's a shame, of course, because you know that the sensor is good in the case of the Huawei P50 Pro and OPPO Find X5 Pro seen. The ultra wide-angle sensor is actually a new one and also has a resolution of 50 MP. It has a field of view of 122 degrees and with a sensor size of 1/2.5″ it is smaller than that in the OPPO Find X5 Pro, but larger than the sensors in the Xiaomi 12 Pro,Huawei P50 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro.
The system is then supplemented by a 64 MP periscope camera, which enables a 3,5x lossless optical zoom. A maximum of 100x digital zoom is supported. This is the same zoom camera as in the Huawei P50 Pro, which is one of the best on the market. Unlike the Magic 4, you bet on the 4 Pro on two front cameras, although there is actually only one, because the second sensor is a 3D depth sensor, which enables 3D face recognition. The actual front camera is identical to the 12 MP camera in the Magic 4.
Like the Magic 4, the Magic 4 Pro a 6,81″ OLED display installed. However, this has a slightly higher resolution of 2.848x1.312. This results in a pixel density of 460 ppi. It is particularly impressive that a quad-curve display is used here again. We last saw this at the Huawei P40 Pro More and Xiaomi Mi 11 seen. You also bet with the Magic 4 Pro to a larger punch hole to enable 3D facial recognition. Apart from that, the display is identical to that in the Honor Magic 4, i.e. it supports LTPO technology, which enables an adaptive refresh rate of 1-120 Hz. Furthermore, the screen should be up to 1.000 nits bright.
Honor also uses the current Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 as the SoC here, which is supported by 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. Honor also advertises a feature called "GPU Turbo X", which is supposed to improve performance again. The cooling should be particularly exciting, since the 8 Gen 1 has a few here Proseems to have problems.
The software should also contribute to the improved performance. Magic UI 6.0 based on Android 12 with all Google services is used here. How long does the Magic 4 Pro will provide updates is unfortunately still unclear at this point in time.
The battery in the Honor Magic 4 Pro measures 4.600 mAh, which means that it can be considered average. Some competitors now offer a little more. On the other hand, Honor scores highly when it comes to charging, because the smartphone is charged with up to 100 watts both wired and wireless. This makes it the first smartphone to achieve such wireless charging speeds.
As usual for a flagship, the Magic 4 Pro again with stereo speakers and an X-axis vibration motor. One is particularly proud of the security features. In addition to an in-display fingerprint sensor, which is based on ultrasonic technology, and 3D face recognition, the company is also particularly proud of the "Dual TEE Security OS Chip". A test has to show how much it will bring in everyday life.
The Honor Magic 4 Pro appears with us in the colors black and green at an RRP of 1.099 euros. A start in Germany is planned for early summer 2022.
