The HONOR Magic4 follows the Magic3 series announced by Honor in mid-2021, and despite it being called a global launch at the time, the devices have not made it out of China yet. Now it seems likely that the Magic3 will be quickly forgotten as Honor focuses on the Magic4.
HONOR Magic4 Pro flagship smartphone incorporates the Pixelworks X5 Plus advanced visual processor. The dedicated visual solution brings comprehensive, industry-leading display technologies from Pixelworks, including Dual MotionEngine® technology, adaptive HDR display, absolute color accuracy, and smooth brightness control, providing a refreshing visual experience for end users.
The new HONOR Magic4 Pro flagship is highly competitive in both its configuration and performance. In terms of hardware, the flagship is built on the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 8 Gen 1 mobile platform, powered by Pixelworks’ fifth generation visual processor, and equipped with a new generation of super-fast charging. For the camera, the HONOR Magic4 Pro flagship has 50 MP primary cameras featuring 7P lens modules, 50 MP ultra-wide-angle cameras, 64 MP telescope cameras with up to 100x digital zoom support. Specific to the display, the smartphone features a 6.81-inch AMOLED screen with an LTPO controller capable of 1-120Hz variable frame rate adjustment and maximum resolution of 2848×1312 pixels.
Both Magic4 phones come with abnormally large camera circles dubbed “Eye of Muse”. You get a 1/1.56-inch 50MP main imager with 2μm pixel size next to a 1/2.5-inch 50MP ultrawide sensor for both phones. The telephoto modules differ with the Pro getting a 1/2-inch 64MP periscope lens with 3.5x optical and up to 100x digital zoom.
The vanilla model settles for an 8MP telephoto module with 5x optical and up to 50x digital zoom. The remaining two cutouts on both phones house the ToF and flicker sensors. Honor is also bringing its ultra fusion photography, AI Color and Movie Master with IMAX Enhanced 10bit 4K video recording at 60fps.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 sits at the helm of both Honor Magic4 phones and up to 12GB RAM and 512GB storage. Honor is also bringing its GPU Turbo X graphics acceleration. Honor’s Magic4 Pro has another neat trick up its sleeve – it can charge at up to 100W both wired and wirelessly via Honor’s SuperCharge chargers.
Magic4 Pro comes in Cyan, Gold, White and Black colors come with glass backs while the Orange color has a vegan leather back. The baseline 8GB RAM and 256GB storage version will retail for €1,099. Honor Magic4 starts at €899
