New year, new luck: Honor is refreshing its line-up with two new top smartphones, the Magic 5 and 5 Pro.

Compared to the previous models, the improvements are minimal, with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 being the main new chipset.

Honor advertises with the round design of the camera module, which is slightly better equipped in the Pro version than in the regular version: one 50-megapixel main, ultra-wide-angle and telephoto camera each with 3.5x optical and 100x digital zoom. In the regular version, the telephoto camera has 32 megapixels and 50x zoom, while the main camera has a slightly higher resolution of 54 megapixels.

Honor has installed the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor in the Magic 5 and has given them a slightly larger 5000 mAh battery compared to the Magic 4. The RAM on both Magic 5s is twelve gigabytes and the internal memory on the Magic 5 is 256 gigabytes, with the Pro version offering twice as much space at 512 gigabytes.

The OLED display on the Pro measures 6.81 inches, just like its predecessor, while the regular version is slightly smaller at 6.73 inches. The operating system on both smartphones is Android 13, with Honour's MagicOS 7.1 user interface. The Pro is available in green and black, the regular in blue and black. The sales launch in Europe is planned for mid-April, with the Magic 5 Pro available from around 1200 euros.

In my world, Super Mario chases Stormtroopers with a unicorn and Harley Quinn mixes cocktails for Eddie and Peter at the beach bar. Wherever I can live out my creativity, my fingers tingle. Or maybe it's because nothing flows through my veins but chocolate, glitter and coffee.
