Honor showed up at MWC 2022 to unveil the new Honor Magic4 Pro. While the brand mainly focused on budget devices when it was under the Hauwei umbrella, Honor finally comes out with its own flagship device – ready to take on Oppo, Samsung and Apple with a device that’s packed to the gills with premium features and hardware.
Just by looking at the back of the phone, you immediately know it’s designed with the camera experience in mind. The circular camera module is massive on the Honor Magic4 Pro, taking up about a third of the space on the back of the phone. It is really impressive.
But the size isn’t just for show as Honor has fitted the device with four rear cameras on the back and two more cameras on the front:
- 50 MP, f/1.8, 23mm (wide), 1/1.56″, 1.0µm, multidirectional PDAF, Laser AF
- 50 MP, f/2.2, 122˚ (ultrawide), 1/2.5″
- 64 MP, f/3.5, 90mm (periscope telephoto), 1/2.0″, 0.7µm, PDAF, OIS, 3.5x optical zoom
- 3D TOF (depth)
- Video: [email protected]/60fps, [email protected]/60fps, gyro-EIS, HDR10, 10-bit video
- 12 MP, f/2.4, 100˚ (selfie), 1.22µm
- TOF 3D, (depth sensor/biometrics)
- Video: [email protected], [email protected]
Although the camera software has not yet been finalized, Honor gave us a ride for a few hours to test the camera’s performance. Portrait mode wasn’t yet enabled on our test unit, nor does it appear to have background noise reduction turned on for video capture. Other than that, the images and video clips we were able to capture seemed to be doing pretty well.
If Honor is able to tweak things even more and deliver better results by the time this Honor Magic4 Pro hits the market in the second quarter of this year, it can be a great option for anyone looking for an alternative to the series. Samsung Galaxy S22.
