Huawei Honor Magic 4 Pro has 3 cameras at the back and main the camera is so amazing that it can take some amazing shots, and can beat some of the camera kings in the market. The Huawei Honor Magic 4 Pro main Camera is 50 megapixel F/1.9. What makes this camera setup even more awesome is that this camera lens is combined with the wide aperture of F/1.9, the wider the aperture the more light will it collect and the more sharp the image and video quality will be. This Huawei Honor Magic 4 Pro can record video 4K at 60 FPS. This is amazing the video will contain more details thanks to its good optimization software and the high-end processor. You can also record 1080P at 240FPS which will be slow motion. There is Optical image stabilization on the main lens only and the telephoto camera. This is as impressive as this will make the camera experience more stable and more accurate. The Huawei Honor Magic 4 Pro has 3 more camera lenses. Let’s talk about that in detail.


Lenses:

Wide (main) lens – 50 MP
– Aperture: f/1.9
– Focal length: 23 mm
– Pixel size: 1 micron
– Sensor: 1/1.56″, Sony IMX766 (Exmor-RS CMOS)
– Phase autofocus (Dual Pixel)
– Optical stabilization
Telephoto lens 50 MP
– Aperture: f/3.5
– Focal length: 90 mm
– Pixel size: 0.7 micron
– Sensor: 1/2.0″, Omnivision OV64B (CMOS)
– Phase autofocus
– Optical stabilization
Ultra-wide lens – 50 MP
– Aperture: f/2.2
– Sensor: 1/2.5″ (CMOS)
Depth lens Yes
Camera features – Bokeh mode
– Pro mode
– RAW support

The main sensor is 50 MP. Which is IMX 766. IMX 766 is the new camera sensor by IMX, which is large and has bigger pixels. The main camera saves 12-megapixel images by default. These are all right with enough detail for this class and true to life colors the dynamic range is good. However, these photos are not ideal with visible noise and over-sharpening, and some corner softness. This sensor is brighter and big. Thanks to the aperture F/1.9. This sensor can take stronger portrait shots and can take great shots in the nighttime because it’s combined with a wider aperture. This sensor is very good at maintaining a good dynamic range in harsh conditions. This sensor is also good at taking very amazing portraits with strong bokeh and good depth of field. At night the main cam takes good low-light photos. There is enough detail realistic-looking exposure and well-preserved colors. The noise is handled well too night mode photos are sharper with more resolved detail and, you get a wider dynamic range with restored highlights, and develop shadows while the exposure is slightly brighter. The Huawei Honor Magic 4 Pro doesn’t turn night and day but can take best night shots. It is a 50 MP sensor so, combining that with great software can result in the best in smartphone photography. The auto focus in this camera sensor is incredibly fast. The sensor is a dual pixel. Overall the sensor is big, bright, and powerful.



There is also an ultra-wide lens of 50 MP. Which is the same camera sensor as the main camera sensor but much wider than the main camera. This is also a great sensor considering its capabilities. The 50-megapixel ultra-wide photos are ok for this price range. But nothing great you get enough contrast and wide dynamic range but they come out soft with a low level of detail and the colors are a bit off. In harsh lighting conditions, this camera sensor suffers a lot because of its aperture which is only f/2.2. This sensor cannot take enough light to take good shots at night. The 50-megapixel ultra-wide photos taken at night time are not really usable.  They’re incredibly dark and noisy. In the video, this camera sensor have a lot of noise. Which is very annoying. You can’t use this ultra-wide camera at night time because it will contain so much grain and noise in the videos and pictures. The sensor aperture is F/2.2 which cannot collect more light at night time and thus can take average shots at night time with more noise.

There is a telephoto camera of 64 MP. This is quite interesting because this is the second smartphone to give a high-resolution camera sensor for a telephoto camera. This camera sensor has optical image stabilization which is very important to give in a telephoto camera. The camera lens aperture is F/3.5 which is good at taking crisp shots, remember that the Samsung galaxy s22 ultra has a 10MP telephoto camera sensor with an aperture of F/4.9. So seeing this wider aperture means the camera will have some interesting features. This camera is 3.5X optical zoom. And man the details on this camera is on another level. The sensor is big and bright.

The main lens also has optical image stabilization and as well telephoto lens. Which is so good you can’t even spot the difference, because it’s more optimized and more stable this time.


SELFIE CAMERA:

Megapixels 12 megapixels
Image resolution 3840 x 2160
Video resolution 2160p (4K) at 30 FPS

The Huawei Honor Magic 4 Pro has a 12-megapixel Selfie Camera. Their recording is kept on 4K at 30 FPS. But considering this Selfie Camera is 12 megapixels. This means it will contain more details. It’s also F/2.0. Which will collect more light at night photography. The sensor will be good at collecting light in the nighttime.  The sensor is also giving some high detail shots with good dynamic range. The sensor provides large pixels with high details. This is awesome because the camera sensor is large and combined with a wider aperture.


Connectivity:

Wi-Fi standard Wi-Fi 6 (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax)
Bluetooth version 5.2
USB type USB Type-C
USB version 3.1
NFC* Yes
Infrared port Yes

The Huawei Honor Magic 4 Pro comes with Wi-Fi 6 with the Bluetooth version of 5.2. Which get you more speed and a better coverage area. Thanks for the Wi-Fi 6. It gives you a better upload and download speed. Huawei Honor Magic 4 Pro comes with the USB type C 3.1, which makes it faster and more efficient. There is also NFC support in this smartphone as well as the infrared port.


SOUND:

Huawei Honor Magic 4 Pro Doesn’t have a headphone jack. It’s a Flagship smartphone so, it has Stereo speakers with the Dolby atoms support. The speakers sound well. You can listen to music and can take calls with these speakers. It’s also supported by the Dolby Atmos which makes the sound experience on another level. The speaker has a nice amount of bass in the sound. You can feel the beat with the nice sound. There are two-speaker one at the bottom and another at the top. The top speaker is also used to take calls. The sound quality of the Huawei Honor Magic 4 Pro is A+.
