The Honor Magic4 series was first announced in February for global markets, followed by the local market in March. That happened today, and it was well worth the wait because the firm also announced a new device, the Honor Magic 4 Ultimate Edition, which is the top-of-the-line Honor Magic4 model.
The HONOR Magic4 Ultimate has the same design as the original Magic4 range and features a huge 6.81-inch LTPO OLED display with a resolution of 1312 x 2848 pixels. The panel has a refresh rate of 1–120Hz. The display also features 1920Hz Pulse-Width Modulation (WM) fading for a more comfortable viewing experience in low light.
The HONOR Magic4 Ultimate is equipped with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor as the Magic4 Pro, as well as 12GB of RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Under the display is a fingerprint scanner, as well as support for Ultra-Wideband (UWB) and 5G.
The Magic4 Ultimate differs significantly from the Magic 4 Pro in terms of the back camera. The primary sensor is a 50MP f/1.6, 1/1.12-inch, 1.4m sensor. The device, according to the manufacturer, can capture stunning night images as well as low-light, brighter portraits with richer colors and fewer visual artifacts. A 64MP f/2.2 12-inch ultrawide camera, a 64MP f/3.5 periscope camera with 3.5-times optical zoom, and a 50MP f/2.0 wide sensor are also included in the phone. On the back, there’s also a TOF 3D depth sensor. A 12MP f/2.4 sensor is used for the front selfie camera.
The battery has a capacity of 4,600 mAh, which is the same as the Magic4 Pros. It offers 100W of fast wired charging but only 50W of fast wireless charging, whereas the Magic 4 Pro supports 100W of wireless charging, which is industry-leading.
