We thought (or maybe we hoped) that the announcement of the Global launch Series Honor Magic 3, But this did not happen. In its place, an interesting novelty was presented that will impact the camera of Honor flagships. The novelty is called Honor Image Engine and consists of a mixture of hardware and software for the improvement of photographic quality. The Magic 3 triptych relies heavily on hardware and the photographic sector, especially with the non plus ultra Pro + model.
The finest model boasts a high-profile configuration, with a five-chamber 50 + 64 + 64 + 64 MP flanked by a ToF sensor for depth calculation. In addition to the primary with OIS and the 126 ° wide-angle Cine Camera, we find a 3.5x optical telephoto lens with OIS and a monochrome sensor. Not only that: the Magic 3 series is the first IMAX Enhanced in the world, being able to record 10-bit videos in Honor Magic-Log format and use the LUT filters available for a more cinematic look.
Honor Image Engine: The company explains how it will improve the Magic 3 camera
This set of cameras is best exploited with this new system called the Honor Image Engine. Computational photography is called upon for combine the data collected from all sensors available. In this way, Honor Magic 3 is capable of enhance photos over the entire focal length, 11mm to 90mm (or up to 2700mm; when 100x digital zoom is considered).
The first advantage of Honor Image Engine is the combination of the data acquired from main sensor e monochrome. The first takes care of acquiring exposure and colors, while the second deals with textures and details. A combination that results in an increase in brightness of 13% and sharpness of 18%.
Another combination always concerns the main sensor but with that wide-angle lens. By combining the information obtained from the two modules, the resulting wide-ranging photos enjoy an 80% improvement in sharpness.
The next step is to merge the data acquired from main sensor e telephoto. The result is that photos taken in the 54/94 mm focal length enjoy a nice boost forward, with a + 180% in terms of sharpness. All this is made possible also and above all by the use of Snapdragon 888 + and its ISP Spectra 580, capable of processing up to 2,7 Gigapixels of data per second.
As the company in the announcement phase tells us, the Honor Image Engine system will arrive on board the Honor Magic 3 series with a update in October. It is not yet clear, however, whether it will only concern the Pro + model on which the presentation has focused or not. But above all, when will they arrive in Italy?
