Honor has launched the Honor Magic 5 Pro, a flagship phone with the highest DXOMARK rating to date. The Magic 5 Pro was unveiled in MWC 2023 alongside Honor Magic 5. The smartphone is set to compete in the flagship arena with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, 50MP triple cameras, and four sides curved display. In this article, let’s dive into the specs, features, and expected price of Honor Magic 5 Pro in Nepal.
Honor Magic 5 Pro Overview:
Let’s start with the main highlight of the Honor Magic 5 Pro. The smartphone packs a triple 50MP flagship camera setup which has bagged the highest DXOMARK rating score of 152. This beats the previous champion Huawei Mate 50 Pro’s score of 147. Honor has housed the camera array in the “Eye of the Muse” design. This one is actually inspired by the first black hole image of the Milky Way Galaxy.
Leading the show is a 50MP primary lens with an f/1.6 aperture and OIS. This 50MP shooter is a 1/1.12-inch 8P lens allowing a 37% increase in image definition by capturing more light. Likewise, there is a 50MP optically stabilized telephoto lens with 3.5X optical zoom. The digital zoom game goes up to 100X here. Continuing the setup is a 50MP ultrawide unit with a 122° FOV which also doubles as a 2.5cm macro camera.
To assist the lenses, there is an 8×8 dTOF sensor for laser focusing that captures real-time depth information for swifter and more accurate focus. Even the dual LED flash gets a flicker and multi-spectrum color temperature sensor, aiding the color accuracy and less flickering in low-light situations.
Moving to the front, the pill-shaped cutout sports a dual setup with a 12MP camera along with a 3D TOF sensor, acting as a 3D face scanner for biometrics and security. Both the front and back cameras are capable of capturing 4K videos.
Display and Design
The highest DXOMARK rating also follows here in the display section with a rating score of 151. The Honor Magic 5 Pro sports a 6.8-inch OLED panel with curved four sides. The 120Hz display comes with LTPO technology for variable refresh rates between 1 – 120Hz. Furthermore, the attributes of the screen include a 480Hz touch sampling rate, HDR10+, 2160Hz PWM dimming, and up to 1800 nits of peak brightness. The phone’s display is also the first one to bag the TÜV Rheinland Circadian Friendly Certification.
Design-wise, the Magic 5 Pro boasts a metal-glass combination chassis with an 8.8mm thickness and 219 grams weight. Bearing an IP68 dust/water resistance, it is available in two colors; Black with a glass back and Meadow Green with an eco-leather back.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
The flagship phone gets the horsepower from Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip under the hood. This flagship processor includes one high-performance Cortex-X3 (@3.2 GHz), two mid-performance Cortex-A715 (@2.8 GHz), another two mid-performance Cortex-A710 (@2.8 GHz), and three efficiency-focused Cortex-A510 (@2.0 GHz) cores.
The phone boots on Honor’s MagicOS7.1 built on top of Android 13. As for the memory configurations, the Magic 5 Pro comes in a sole 12GB LPDDR5X RAM and 512GB UFS 4.0 storage combo.
Battery, and Other Specs
As per GSMArenaChina is getting the Magic 5 Pro with a 5,450mAh carbon silicon battery. The carbon silicon battery is a new tech and is different than the usual Lithium-iON or Lithium Polymer cells. When a standard lithium cell’s voltage drops to 3.5 volts, there is not much power left while the silicon carbon one can boast 240% more capacity left at 3.5V than the standard battery. This new tech unveiled at MWC provides a 12.8% improvement overall.
For the global market, Magic 5 Pro gets its juice from a 5100mAh battery with 66W fast charging support. Likewise, it also supports 50W wireless charging. Other features of these phones include 5G, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and USB 3.1 for connectivity.
