That’s right, the all-new HONOR Magic4 Series is here, and it’s arrived in style. HONOR’s first major launch in the UK is set to make some serious waves. The Series comprises both the Magic4 Pro and the Magic4 Lite; each with its own unique features. But what’s the difference between them? And which one’s right for you? Let’s explore.

HONOR Magic4 Pro: The essentials

Iconic design

Unlike most flagship handsets, the HONOR Magic4 Pro sets its periscope telephoto camera in the centre. So the rear camera looks super-striking and will certainly turn heads.

It’s all about colour

The Magic4 Pro’s 6.81in display boasts 1.07 billion colours. Did you know there were that many colours? We didn’t. This means the Magic4 Pro is certified HDR10+ and IMAX Enhanced. Basically, the visuals are incredible.

Photography

HONOR Magic4 Pro’s triple camera system brings you a 50MP wide camera, a 50MP 122° ultra-wide snapper, and a 64MP periscope telephoto lens. Plus, a whole load of fancy extra features which we’ll go into in more detail later.

Battery

Need to charge in a hurry? Magic4 Pro boasts a 4600mAh battery which gives you plenty of power throughout the day. And its wired or wireless charging options give you super-fast charging when you’re short on time.

HONOR Magic4 Lite: The essentials

Great view

The Magic4 Lite’s 6.81in Ultra HD screen has a 94% screen-to-body ratio.

All-day battery

If you’ve got a long day ahead of you, Magic4 Lite will back you up. Seriously – nearly 13 hours of playback, or over 25 hours of calls, all on one full charge.

Capture every moment

Photographers and filmmakers will get their fill, with Magic4 Lite’s 3 HD cameras. Plus, with its optimised imaging algorithm, you’ll be a pro in no time.

What we’re loving about Magic4

Let’s get into the detail of these phones a little more…

The cameras

HONOR Magic4 Pro: capture all you want and more

Are you ready for your close-up? Magic4 Pro offers 3.5x optical zoom and 100x digital zoom. And with its multi-point laser focus sensor, you can focus on anything you want, quickly and accurately. And get your bokeh effects on too.

Plus, if you’re feeling fancy, you can tap into its advanced features:

  • Advanced wide camera: The advanced wide camera has a superior lens than its predecessor, and an upgraded algorithm. So, you can capture sharp HDR photography.
  • Night mode: Take stunning photos, even in low light. With a large aperture, and extra-large sensor, your Magic is perfect for shooting at night.
  • Magic-Log: An industry-first 10-bit Log 4K video recording in 60fps delivers cinematic-level footage. Magic4 Pro is built for smartphone filmmaking. Magic-Log pro mode gives you more original details and dynamic range information. Now anyone can shoot professional-level movies.

HONOR Magic4 Lite: Be a professional in no time

The Lite has 3 rear cameras to play with: a 48MP main camera, plus a 2MP macro and 2MP Bokeh. So, you can stun your friends and followers with a wide range of beautiful images, from super close-ups to landscapes, and everything in between.

The displays

If 1.07 billion colours isn’t quite enough for you, the Magic4 Pro offers a truly immersive experience. Its combined LTPO 1~120Hz adaptive refresh rate and 1920Hz PWM dimming technology delivers beautiful, smooth viewing. And the Magic4 Lite gives you beautiful smoothness too, with up to a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate.

Magic4: Batteries and storage that keep going and going

HONOR Magic4 Pro:

As well as its 4,600mAh battery, the 100W wireless HONOR SuperCharge can charge the phone to 50% in 15 minutes. Or, if you fancy plugging in, Magic4 Pro also has 100W wired HONOR SuperCharge. It’s made from super-conductive hexagonal graphene. Which basically means it conducts faster, but without overheating. And, the Magic4 Pro comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB memory.

HONOR Magic4 Lite:

With a large battery and HONOR’s AI smart power saving technology, you’ll get a longer battery life. And its powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 6nm processor gives you more power while saving power. Plus, you can charge up to 81% in only 30 minutes. Plus, the Magic4 Lite comes with 6GB RAM. But its dynamic RAM Turbo technology gives you an extra 2GB ROM to boost your performance when you need it.

Design to blow your mind

The Magic4 Series is designed using cutting-edge thermal glass bending. It gives it a beautiful quad-curved screen, which fits perfectly and comfortably in your hands.

Which one should you choose?

As with all Series, it really depends on what’s important to you. Both these phones have a beautiful, curved design with 6.81in screens, so size isn’t a key factor between Pro and Lite. It’s more about display and cameras. The HONOR Magic4 Pro offers superior camera options, plus a more vivid, detailed viewing experience on its screen. The Lite will save you a little on costs, while still offering a gorgeous display and wonderful image capture. Both deliver a high-performance, fast-charging and smooth-scrolling experience. Whichever one you choose, one thing’s for sure: the HONOR Magic4 Series is a serious contender in the world of premium smartphones.

Where can you get your hands on one?
