Honors Magic3 Smartphone Features Four Cameras And A Partnership With Imax

Honor has unveiled the Magic3, Magic3 Pro, and Magic3 Pro+, its first flagship smartphone range to be released abroad.
The Pro has four cameras in its massive camera array, and thanks to its “IMAX Improved” features, it can produce “cinema-like” footage.
The Magic3 has been released by Honor, which was once Huawei’s affordable smartphone brand that was spun off into its own corporation.
While it has two other phones designed particularly for the Chinese market, this is the company’s first flagship phone for the worldwide market.
Looking at the appearance and some of the functions, it’s evident that Honor hasn’t strayed too far from its roots: the Magic3 Pro shares a lot of similarities with a Huawei handset.
To begin with, the camera array’s design is unmistakably Huawei.
The huge circular structure and general form of the device resembles that of a Huawei Mate device, and Engadget also points out that the boasts about IMAX Improved cameras allowing users to create their own “cinema-quality films” are similar to that of Huawei’s Mate 30 and Mate 40 smartphones.
Apart of the camera systems on each phone, the Honor Magic3, Magic3 Pro, and Magic3 Pro+ are supposed to be the highest-end phones in the company’s portfolio and are quite comparable.
The Magic3 has a 50-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.9 aperture.
Honor also includes a 64-megapixel monochrome camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera with a 120-degree f/2.2 aperture.
A 64-megapixel periscope telephoto module with a 3.5x optical zoom and up to 100x digital zoom is included in the Pro, as well as an optical image stabilizer.
The Pro+ replaces the main sensor with a 50-megapixel wide (main) camera with a bigger 1/1.28-inch color sensor with optical image stabilization and Honor’s “Full Pixel Octa Phase Detection (PD) AutoFocus,” which allows the phone to track moving objects precisely and accurately, according to the company.
The Pro+ also improves the monochrome camera’s light gathering capability to f/1.8 and the ultra-wide to a 64-megapixel, 126-degree field of view, f/2.4 sensor.
Finally, the Pro+ includes a time-of-flight (TOF) sensor as well as a color temperature sensor to improve performance in a variety of situations.
The Honor Imaging Engine, which was developed in-house and is powered by artificial intelligence, is used in all three smartphone models.
Honor’s “IMAX Improved” camera, which adds AI-powered “professional movie-grade color solutions” to movies taken on the devices, is the result of the company’s relationship with IMAX.
The Magic3 series has “Magic-Log” and “cinematic-level 3D LUT (look up table) video capabilities,” according to Honor. LUTs are important in filmmaking and are normally laid out over log footage to produce specific “looks,” and the addition of log to the Magic3 series means that editors will have greater leeway to modify color in post than they would without it.
Honor, on the other hand, does not specify the bit depth of the log footage.
Because lower bit depth log footage means less info in the highlights and shadows, it’s uncertain how much editing flexibility editors will have.
The Honor Magic3 series will first be released in China, with a western distribution following soon after.
The Magic3, with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage, will cost 899 Euro ($1,054), the Magic 3 Pro with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage will cost 1,099 Euro ($1,289), and the highest-end Magic3 Pro+ with 12GB RAM and 512GB of storage will cost 1,499 Euro ($1,758) in Europe.
