MWC 2022 | Honor Magic 4 Pro and Magic 4 now official with 120 Hz LTPO AMOLED screens, 50 MP triple rear cameras, and more
Over the past few weeks, tentative specifications of the Honor Magic 4 and Magic 4 Pro have been doing the rounds of rumour mills online. Most of them painted a rosy picture of the smartphone. Honor has officially unveiled the Magic 4 Pro at MWC 2022, and it packs some serious firepower. Its younger sibling, the Honor Magic 4, has also been revealed with equally impressive hardware.
Honor Magic 4 Pro specifications
Starting with the Honor Magic 4 Pro, it packs a colossal 6.8-inch curved LTPO HDR10+ AMOLED panel with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a resolution of 2,848 x 1,312 pixels. Honor claims that the refresh rate can dynamically adjust between 1 Hz and 120 Hz based on the content displayed. Real-time conversion of SDR to HDR content is also possible via the included MEMC. Furthermore, it is supposedly the first LTPO panel in the world with 1,920 Hz PWM DC Dimming.
While the Honor Magic 4 Pro's screen is nothing short of impressive, its real highlight is in its cameras. At the back, there are three sensors, starting with a 50 MP primary lens (f/1.8), a 50 MP ultra-wide-angle lens (f2.2) and a 64 MP periscope telephoto lens (f/3.5, 3.5x optical zoom, 100x digital zoom). There's a dTOF sensor thrown in the mix as well. At the front, there's a 12 MP wide-angle lens and a 3D depth sensor in a pill-shaped cutout.
Under the hood, the Honor Magic 4 Pro packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, coupled with up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Its 4,600mAh battery supports 100 W fast charging over a cable and wirelessly, and both techniques require proprietary hardware supplied exclusively by the OEM.
Honor Magic 4 specifications
The vanilla Honor Magic 4 reduces the display resolution to 2,664 x 1,224 pixels but keeps the same 6.8-inch 120 Hz panel. Additionally, it uses an 8 MP periscope telephoto lens and axes the ToF sensor along with the 3D depth sensor at the front. Lastly, its 4,800 mAh battery only supports 66 W charging over a cable.
Both the Honor Magic and Magic 4 Pro run Android 12 customized with Magic UI 6.0 out of the box. Wireless connectivity options include Bluetooth 5.1, 5G and Wi-Fi 6. Interestingly enough, the Honor Magic 4 has an IP56 rating, while the Magic 4 Pro upgrades that to IP68. An under-display fingerprint sensor enables biometric authentication in both devices.
Price and availability
The base Honor Magic 4 variant with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage €899, whereas the Honor Magic 4 Pro with the same spec costs €1,099. Both phones will be available for sale in Europe at an unspecified date. Check out the attached images for our hands-on experience with the Honor Magic 4 Pro.
