For the display, the Honor Magic 4 Pro sports a quad-curved AMOLED HDR10 + panel from 6,81 ″ 2K (2848 x 1312 pixels) with a density of 460 PPI. It is a type panel LTPO, able to dynamically vary the refresh rate through Honor MotionSync technology from 1 to 120 Hz to save battery, as well as 360 Hz touch sampling and maximum brightness of 1.000 nits. The standard model has a two-sided curved panel. Visual features include SDR to HDR conversion and MEMC technology to increase video FPS. The Magic 4 Series also includes PWM pulse width modulation at 1.920Hz, designed to reduce eye strain.
Honor Magic 4 Pro has a "pill" punch-hole look, useful for hosting a configuration with a double selfie camera. In addition, the biometric scan takes place via the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Gen 2, ultrasonic fingerprint sensor with 77% larger surface area and 40% improved speed.
Hardware and software
Both Honor Magic 4 and Magic 4 Pro include the SoC inside Snapdragon 8 Gen1 by Qualcomm. Recall that it is a SoC with 4 nm Samsung production process, with an octa-core ARMv9 CPU (1 x 3 GHz X2 + 3 x 2,5 GHz A710 + 4 x 1,8 GHz A510) and an Adreno 730 GPU. The SoC offers a technical advancement of + 20% on the CPU side, + 30% on the GPU side and + 300% on the artificial intelligence side with the Qualcomm 7th Gen AI Engine. Memories are from 8 GB of RAM LPDDR5 e 256 GB of UFS 3.1 space, while the standard model battery is one 4.800 mAh a 66W and on the Pro one 4.600 mAh with SuperCharge charging (wired and wireless) a 100W.
For all models there is a vibration motor on X-Axis and a heat dissipation system with a hexagonal graphene part and another with steam room. On the software side we have Android 12 customized with Magic UI 6.0, with various Honor Turbo Engines features for performance optimization. For example, Honor OS Turbo X to improve fluidity by combining hardware and software, and GPU Turbo X to improve the frame rate and lower latency in the gaming phase.
The Magic UI 6.0 also improves the appearance of the privacy, starting with the implementation of a dedicated chip to host passwords and biometric data and the HTEE + QTEE double security system. Also, there is a new feature of private call: Directional Sound technology causes sound frequencies to be split and emitted from both the ear capsule and the display. In this way, those around us will not be able to hear the conversation, even in the smallest and most silent spaces. At the same time, there is no shortage of stereo speakers with IMAX Enhanced and DTS: X support.
What is further improved is the camera compartment. The Honor Magic 4 series aims to be an industry reference, with unprecedented technology for photography. On the standard model there is one 50 + 50 + 8 MP with wide-angle lens from 122 ° e periscopial telephoto lens with 50x digital zoom. On the Pro we have a triple camera from 50 + 50 + 64 MP, including 1 / 1,56 ″ primary sensor with 7P lens, wide angle and periscopial telephoto lens capable of one optical zoom 3.5x and 100x digital zoom. Alongside them there is also an 8 × 8 dTOF sensor for focusing.
In addition to the hardware, the technology Ultra Fusion combines data from all sensors in play, ensuring a + 65% increase in the sharpness and clarity of captured photos. The AI Color Engine technology, then, allows you to calibrate the white balance based on the context of the frame.
Honor has also focused on the quality of video recording, with the Magic 4 series being the first to bring video support 4K 10-bit at 60 fps. Options include Honor Magic-Log Movie Master and AI Film Effects support, with Cinematic 3D LUT to give recorded clips a more cinematic color tone with various presets. There is also an anti-flicker sensor to improve focus and shutter speed in low light.
The reason why Honor Magic 4 Pro has such a punch-hole screen is to be found in the selfie camera. In addition to the sensor from 12 MP for the photos there is a 3D Depth Camera used for the facial recognition 3D.
