Honor just confirmed that the Honor Magic 5 series is coming to Malaysia as early as next month in April 2023. Powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, the Magic 5 Pro and the standard Magic 5 are fast, high-end phones, and the Pro model even has a triple camera system that can do up to 100x zoom.
Let’s start with the range-topping Magic 5 Pro. Its triple camera configuration is made up of a 50MP primary shooter, a 50MP ultra-wide lens, and a 50MP periscope telephoto sensor that can do 3.5x optical zoom or 100x digital zoom. As for the selfie camera, it’s a 12MP unit.
