    Honor Magic 5: Most important things to know

    The Magic 5 line is Honor’s other flagship series available across the world. The Magic 5 is now available, along with Lite and Pro variants, as well as an Ultimate edition that is exclusively accessible in China.

    Here’s all you need to know about the Magic 5 smartphones. Alternatively, you can read our Magic 5 Pro review to find out what we think of the flagship model.

    Where is the Honor Magic 5 on sale?

    Honor debuted the Magic 5 and 5 Pro, as well as the Magic Vs foldable, during the MWC trade fair in Barcelona on February 27, precisely a year after the Honor Magic 4. By that time, the company had already revealed the Magic 5 Lite, which debuted in February, just a week or two before the main event.

    The Honor Magic 5 Pro is now available to order through Honor’s website, the network Three, or retailers like as Amazon, Argos, Very, and Currys…

    Exact release dates for other markets have yet to be revealed, as have those for the normal Magic 5.

    Honor also revealed a China-only Magic 5 Ultimate, which is available today but will not be available elsewhere.

    As with previous models, the Magic 5 is unlikely to be available in North America.

    How much does the Honor Magic 5 cost?

    To begin, the Magic 5 costs €899 and has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

    The upgrade to the Pro costs £949/€1,199, but it has 12GB RAM and 512GB storage. In Europe, this is a modest premium over the €1,099 Magic 4 Pro, however costs in the UK remain unchanged.

    The Magic 5 Lite costs £329/€369, which is a little rise over the Magic 4 Lite, which launched at £299/€349.

    Finally, the Ultimate is priced at $6,699 (about $975/£780) in China.

    What are the Honor Magic 5 series specs and features?

    Let’s split things up phone by phone.

    Honor Magic 5 Pro

    First and foremost, now that the Magic 5 Pro is official, we know a lot about it.

    Honor Magic 5

    This is the world’s flagship phone, featuring the typical assortment of top-tier specifications.

    It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which is currently the most powerful available.

    The design is straightforward, with a traditional glass slab and a round camera module on the back. With an IP68 designation, it should be dust and water resistant.

    The phone will be available in black and green variants initially, but will also be available in blue, purple, and orange models globally.

    With 66W cable charging and 50W wireless charging rates, the 5100mAh battery should provide long-lasting performance.

    The display is also excellent. It’s a 6.81in OLED with a few additional features. It’s quad-curved, so it should feel nice in your hand, and it employs LTPO technology for a dynamic refresh rate of 1-120Hz.

    The 1312×2848 resolution should be sharp, with HDR capability, a peak brightness of 1800 nits, and outstanding color accuracy. There’s also a display chipset devoted to optimizing HDR features and frame rate while gaming or watching movies.

    Honor has also prioritized eye health, with 2160Hz PWM dimming, reduced blue light emissions, and ‘Circadian Night Display’ technology to prevent disrupting your sleeping patterns.

    The camera is another notable feature. On the back, there’s a triple 50Mp camera arrangement, which means the primary, ultrawide, and telephoto sensors all have that high resolution.

    The huge 1/1.12in OIS-enabled primary camera is undoubtedly the centerpiece, but everything looks good on paper. They also benefit from ‘Falcon Capture’ technology, which is designed to optimize images of moving subjects.

    In terms of software, the phone is powered by Android 13 with MagicOS 7.1 on top. It also has some motion gesture controls, such as swiping your hand to scroll, although we doubt they’ll be used much.

    Here are the full specs:

    • 6.81in 1-120Hz LTPO OLED display
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
    • 12GB RAM
    • 512GB storage
    • Camera:
      • 50Mp, f/1.6 main camera
      • 50Mp, f/2.0 ultrawide camera
      • 50Mp, f/3.0 3.5x telephoto camera
    • 5100mAh battery
    • 66W wired charging
    • 50W wireless charging
    • 5G
    • Wi-Fi
    • Bluetooth
    • IP68

    Honor Magic 5

    Given the €300 price difference, the standard Magic 5 is surprisingly similar to the Pro and may be a better option for many individuals.

    The design is roughly the same, with the same size quad-curved display and eye protective features.

    The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor drives it, and the 5100mAh battery is also the same size. It even has the same 66W wired charging but no wireless charging.

    Another notable absence is an IP rating, and the cameras are similarly degraded. They appear identical – and there are still three on the back – but the sensors are different: a 54Mp primary camera, a 50Mp ultrawide, and a 32Mp telephoto. All of these are still high resolution, but expect image quality to suffer compared to the Pro versions.

    Here are the full specs:

    • 6.81in 1-120Hz display
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
    • 8GB RAM
    • 256GB storage
    • Camera:
      • 54Mp, f/1.9 main camera
      • 50Mp, f/2.0 ultrawide camera
      • 32Mp, f/2.4 OIS telephoto camera
      • 12Mp selfie camera
    • 5100mAh battery
    • 66W wired charging
    • 5G
    • Wi-Fi
    • Bluetooth

    Honor Magic 5 Lite

    The Honor Magic 5 Lite is the following model. This is effectively a re-branded Honor X9a for European markets, as shown by the way its appearance changes somewhat from the other models in the series.

    Honor Magic 5  lite

    With a price of £330/€379, it’s no surprise that this is the most basic phone in the lineup. Nonetheless, it has a 6.67in 120Hz OLED display with curved edges, as well as a large 5100mAh battery with fast 40W charging.

    Because the Snapdragon 695 chipset is paired with only 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, performance will be subpar. Hopefully, the 64Mp main camera, which is joined only by a 5Mp ultrawide and a 2Mp macro, will impress for the price.

    Here are the full specs:

    • 6.67in 120Hz AMOLED display
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 695
    • 6GB RAM
    • 128GB storage
    • Camera:
      • 64Mp, f/1.8 main camera
      • 5Mp, f/2.2 ultrawide camera
      • 2Mp, f/2.4 macro camera
      • 16Mp, f/2.5 selfie camera
    • 5100mAh battery
    • 40W wired charging
    • 5G
    • Wi-Fi
    • Bluetooth 5.1
    • 161.6 x 73.9 x 7.9mm
    • 175g

    Honor Magic 5 Ultimate

    Finally, there’s the Magic 5 Ultimate, but it’s only available in China.

    That’s probably OK, because there’s not much new here: this is virtually the Pro save for the name – and design.

    The Ultimate has a more unusual camera module and an option of black or orange vegan leather finishes. It also has 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, as well as a battery that has been upgraded to 5450mAh capacity.

    Everything else is essentially as you find it on the Pro. Here are the full specs:

    • 6.81in 1-120Hz LTPO OLED display
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
    • 16GB RAM
    • 512GB storage
    • Camera:
      • 50Mp, f/1.6 main camera
      • 50Mp, f/2.0 ultrawide camera
      • 50Mp, f/3.0 3.5x telephoto camera
    • 5450mAh battery
    • 66W wired charging
    • 50W wireless charging
    • 5G
    • Wi-Fi
    • Bluetooth
    • IP68
