However, it’s the camera department where the Honor Magic 4 Ultimate sets itself apart. It packs the most sophisticated camera hardware and software we have ever seen on any Honor phone to date. The quad-camera setup of the Honor Magic 4 Ultimate is highlighted by a 50MP primary shooter, which is paired with a massive 1/1.12-inch sensor and a large f/1.6 aperture. The main camera uses a customized 8P lens which Honor says improves center sharpness by 37% and edge sharpness by 30%. In addition, Honor has applied Ultra Anti-Reflection (UAR) coating and infra-Red Cutoff Filter (IRCF) to reduce lens flare when shooting against strong light sources.

Meanwhile, the 64MP ultra-wide camera offers a 126-degree field of view and uses a Dual Free-Form lens to greatly reduce edge distortion. Then there’s a 64MP periscope camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) that offers up to 3.5x optical zoom and 100x digital zoom. Rounding up the camera setup is a 50MP Spectrum Enhanced camera which debuted on the Magic V foldable. All of this is powered by a custom-made image processor, which enables faster and more efficient computational photography and features like 4K Night Mode for video shooting. The phone also supports a new video format called Magic-Log2, which the company says brings out a 15% higher dynamic range in video recordings.

The Honor Magic 4 Ultimate packs a 4,600mAh battery with 100W wired fast support and 50W fast wireless charging support. Other notable highlights include Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Sensor Gen 2 under-display fingerprint scanner, 5G support, Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6, dual stereo speakers, and IP68 dust and water protection. On the software side, the phone runs Magic UI 6.0 based on Android 12.

Pricing & Availability

The Honor Magic 4 Ultimate comes in Black and White colorways. It will launch in China later this year at a starting price of CNY 7,999. Honor hasn’t shared any details about a subsequent global launch yet.
