At an event held in China, Honor presented the Honor5 series and took the opportunity to add a new special edition of the Magic5 for the local market – Honor Magic5 Ultimate. Only, it seems that the company has bet only on the design of the latter.

Indeed, underneath its chic leather exterior, the Magic5 Ultimate is actually a 16/512GB maximum Honor Magic5 Pro. Let’s take a look at it in more detail.

Honor Magic5 Ultimate design

The Honor Magic5 Ultimate comes in two color variations, you will have to choose between a sleek black and a fiery orange color. Both are made of vegan leather, with a premium Montblanc Bespoke leather case in the retail packaging. The Ultimate also includes USB-C headphones in the packaging, unlike the other members of the series.

Magic5 Ultimate shares the same features as Magic5 Pro

The Magic5 Ultimate is the same flagship product as the Pro model in the series. On the front, the device has a 6.81-inch 1312x2848px LTPO OLED display with an adaptive refresh rate of 120 Hz. Underneath that slab is a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip with an Adreno 740 GPU, all boosted by 16GB of RAM.

A new silicon-carbon battery technology

A 5,450 mAh battery powers the device and at a fast 66W wired charge. You can also charge it wirelessly with a power of 50 W. This battery is a new type of silicon-carbon battery technology. Honor unveiled it last week during the global launch of the Magic5 series.

This battery is only present in two devices currently: the Honor Magic5 Pro and Magic5 Ultimate units sold in China. The Magic5 Pro units sold internationally offer 5100 mAh batteries. That extra 350 mAh on the Ultimate represents a 7% increase in capacity.

Moving on to the photography part, the Ultimate mounts a dual camera sensor setup on the front: a larger than usual 12MP selfie camera and a depth sensor. On the back, there’s a triple 50MP camera setup waiting for you: a 23mm f/1.6 wide unit with a 1/1.12″ custom sensor, a 90mm 3.5x periscope zoom lens, and a 13mm ultra-wide one with autofocus and macro capabilities.

You can order the Honor Magic5 Ultimate in China right now for CNY 6,699 (€908, INR 79,155, converted). Shipments are expected to begin on March 20.
