Honor’s latest flagship Magic 4 series of smartphones will succeed the Honor Magic 3 series of smartphones in the market. The Chinese company announced the Honor 4 and the Honor 4 Pro at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2022, and are loaded to the gills with features. The Honor Magic 4 series brings LTPO OLED displays, an impressive set of cameras, Qualcomm’s flagship processor, and 100-watt wireless charging, among other features. We’re happy to report that the handsets will ship with Google’s apps and services enabled.
Honor Magic 4 Pro and Honor Magic 4: Features, Specifications
The Honor Magic 4 Pro and Magic 4 come with a glass-metal sandwich design and a curved display, which enhances its appeal even further. Like the Honor Magic 3 series, the Honor Magic 4 series also carries a circular camera design at the rear, which the company likes to call an “eye of muse” design. The pill-shaped cutout at the top left of the display houses the dual selfie cameras. The Honor Magic 4 Pro comes with a large 6.81-inch OLED display with LTPO technology, which can adjust the refresh rate from 1Hz to 120Hz depending on the content being viewed. The display is curved on all four sides. The vanilla Magic 4 gets the same display specifications but is curved only on the two sides.
Both the smartphones are powered by Qualcomm’s latest and most powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, which is built on Samsung’s 4nm fabrication technology. The Honor Magic 4 Pro will be equipped with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of internal storage.

In terms of camera, the Honor Magic 4 Pro comes with a 50MP primary sensor, a 50MP ultra-wide shooter with a 122-degree field of view, and a 64MP periscope telephoto snapper with a 3.5x optical zoom. The vanilla Magic 4 misses out on the periscope lens and makes do with an 8MP telephoto shooter.
Other notable features include Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6, dual-SIM, GPS, IP68/IP54 certification, and stereo speakers, among many others. The Honor Magic 4 Pro packs in a 4600mAh battery that supports 100-watt charging in both wired and wireless modes. Honor claims the handset can charge fully in under 30 minutes. Using Honor’s wireless charger, you can get up to 50 percent charge in just 15 minutes. The standard Honor Magic 4 gets a bigger 4800mAh battery under its hood but comes with a slower 66-watt wired charging support, and misses out on wireless charging tech. Both the devices will run on Magic UI 6.0 software based on Android 12.
