After making its global debut at Mobile World Congress this year, the HONOR Magic5 Pro is now in the Philippines! With versatile cameras, powerful performance, and a premium display, HONOR fans can be happy with what this flagship phone has to offer. Even with all its capabilities, HONOR managed to undercut other flagships by pricing the Magic5 Pro at P59,990! I’m here to share some of the standout features of this awesome phone.
Its Star Wheel Triple Camera Design on the back houses a 50MP Wide Camera, a 50MP Ultra Wide Camera, and a 50MP Telephoto Camera. The cameras on this phone have an increase in sensor size for better low-light performance. Thanks to its Ultra Fusion Computational Optics, the Magic5 Pro can take clearer photos even at 3.5-100x zoom!
Equipped with the all-new HONOR Image Engine, the HONOR Magic5 Pro debuts an all-new Millisecond Falcon Capture algorithm. It enables users to capture complex scenes with remarkable ease and clarity. Other highlight features of this phone’s cameras include: Super Night Capture, AI Motion Sensing Capture, and IMAX Enhanced Movie Master.
When you’re competing at the highest level, you expect nothing but the best. The HONOR Magic5 Pro boasts a 6.81-inch LTPO AMOLED display with a Unique Quad-Curved Floating Screen. This makes sure that you get a very immersive experience in everything that you do. Its Novel Display Luminance Enhancement Technology allows the Magic5 Pro to reach a peak HDR brightness of 1800 nits. This phone also features an always-on high dynamic range (HDR) effect to enhance video clarity and has HDR10+ and IMAX Enhanced certifications for videos that support them. To power all this phone’s display capabilities, it has a Discrete Display Chipset to maintain that 120Hz refresh rate with lower power consumption.
Other display features to help relieve users’ eye strain include a Circadian Night Display and the first LTPO display with 2160Hz Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Dimming Technology. The Magic5 Pro is the first phone to get the TÜV Rheinland Circadian Friendly Certification. It even got a score of 151 in the DXOMARK Smartphone Display Test, making it the top phone display in DXOMARK’s rankings.
The HONOR Magic5 Pro brings flagship performance for anything you throw at it in multiple ways! For all-around performance, there’s Qualcomm’s best with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform. To support this powerful processor, HONOR added custom chips with specific functions. Supporting all this phone’s display-centric features is the aforementioned Discrete Display Chipset.
For better security and privacy, this phone has a Discrete Security Chipset that is at the heart of its Dual-TEE Security System co-developed with Qualcomm. It offers hardware-level protection for users’ data and provides maximum security for passwords and biometrics (face IDs, fingerprints).
To improve Wi-Fi and Bluetooth performance, the Magic5 Pro uses an industry-first standalone Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antenna architecture and the HONOR C1 RF Enhanced Chipset. These improve Wi-Fi performance by 200% and reduces Wi-Fi latency by 30%.
The Magic5 Pro uses MagicOS 7.1 based on Android 13 which has a lot of smart software features. Those include MagicRing for multi-device collaboration and Magic Text for intelligent text recognition which help users to further boost their productivity.
Flagship Battery and Charging
Supporting all these powerful features is a big 5100 mAh battery that can last you a full day without worries. Charging the HONOR Magic5 Pro will be a breeze with its support for 66W Wired and 50W Wireless HONOR SuperCharge. If my experience with the HONOR X9a 5G is any indication, then I feel at ease with the Magic5 Pro.
Of course, the HONOR Magic5 Pro’s design is totally stunning! Adhering to the Eye of Muse iconic design, this phone introduces the Star Wheel Triple Camera system. It features symmetry dual-curved ultra-narrow bezels on both sides and the Star Wheel Triple Camera Design sitting as the centerpiece on the back cover. This blends the beautiful curves found in natural landscapes and modern architecture into the design of the cutting-edge device. The Magic5 Pro comes in two gorgeous colors: Midnight Black and Meadow Green.
Pricing and Availability
With all of its capabilities, it’s really surprising that the HONOR Magic5 Pro retails for P59,990!
