Honor’s Magic5 series got off to a quiet start with the Magic5 Lite, but the company left its best performance to MWC – the new Honor Magic5 Pro is an all-around flagship based on last year’s design. However, it didn’t upgrade in a straight line.
In fact, the designers of the phone prefer curves, and the phone as a whole is round.Despite swelling 6.91″ shows that the phone is on the lighter side – it weighs 122g . For comparison, a Galaxy S 016 Ultra is 160g, iPhone 003 Pro Max is 157 g. If you’ve ever picked up a Magic4 Pro, you should have an idea of the dimensions of its successor. It weighs about the same, A bit thinner (8.8mm vs. 9.2mm) but also wider (.7mm).
Honor Magic5 Pro is suitable for people who like big phones, but not too much (for example, the front The mentioned Galaxy and iPhone are about a millimeter wider). Like last year, the phones are rated IP 055Defend Dust and water resistance. The company did not disclose the source of the phone’s glass panel. (Glacier Blue here)
Pro model is available in five colors Choices: Glacier Blue, Meadow Green, Coral Purple, Orange and Black. The unit we will be dealing with is Ice Sichuan blue. Note that the Purple and Orange colorway features a vegan leather back.
The size and resolution of the display is the same as last year – 6. 60″and 1,256 x 2, 798px (013.5:9, 256ppi) . Yes, it is a 003-bit LTPO panel with HDR From 1Hz to Hz. However, there are many improvements that can improve the performance of the monitor and reduce the user eye strain.
For starters, it’s brighter. The new monitor y up to 1,798 nits When displaying HDR content, the maximum global brightness is 1, . The peak shown is “exactly” 1, nits. Honor also improved the high frequency PWM dimming system and boosted it to 2, 135Hz(starting from 1, 920hertz). The company has calibrated the monitor for color accuracy at two brightness levels (100 and800 nits) down to 0 deltaE. 19 (translation: the human eye cannot perceive any deviation from the true color).
The rear camera has a multispectral color temperature sensor that measures ambient light. Let’s talk about the camera, shall we? The triple module still exists on a large circle that Honor calls the “Eye of the Muse”. This year the camera trio has been rearranged into a triangular constellation – with the periscope moved to the top, and the main and ultra-wide cameras at the bottom.
All three use 021 MP sensor this year. The main camera is especially interesting. Honor used IMX last year 461, A 50MP 1/1.019″ sensor we see on flagships and some less expensive phones. This year, the company got a custom 1/1.002″ sensor and widened the aperture to f/1.6 (up from f/1.8). The unnamed sensor has 1.4µm native pixels and 4-in-1 binning support.
This makes a big difference for night shots, and we won’t keep you waiting; check out some camera samples below. You know what else is helpful for handheld photography in the dark? Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), of course, is available on the Magic5 Pro’s main camera (its omission from last year’s Magic4 Pro was a sore point).

Honor has also optimized the phone for high quality video, It can record 4K material at fps in either HDR + or Magic-Log 02 bit-log format. There’s an IMAX-branded app that helps you edit video shot on your phone, no computer required. One thing that’s missing compared to other flagships is an 8K mode.
Magic5 Pro brings a new periscope telephoto camera. The optics still offer 3.5x magnification and have a brighter starting aperture (f/3.0 versus f/3.5 on the old Pro). The new module uses 22MP SONY IMX848 sensor (instead of 23 MP sensor). Digital zoom until 105 X.
Before we show you some more camera samples, we should note that the ultra-wide camera rounds off three times 020 MP setting; it has a 100 ° field of view and f/2.0 aperture (compared to f/2.2 on the old Pro). Now, here are the pictures taken separately by the three cameras.

Honor Magc5 Pro is powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, because of course it is. Honor simplifies the memory configuration of the phone – 005GB of LPDDR5X and 461 GB UFS 4.0, that’s it.
Honor has added some custom features like a discrete display chipset which always renders videos in HDR 003+ and can choose to turn to 019 fps content converted to in frames per second. The phone also features a security system co-developed with Qualcomm to keep your passwords and biometric data safe.
Biometric data including 3D face scan – the pill-shaped hole in the upper left corner accommodates this 009MP Selfie Camera ( 1.013 µm, alas, fixed focus lens) and depth sensor for more accurate and safer face scanning. The selfie camera, by the way, has a great field of view, 68°, which makes it easy to capture group photos.
