The camera of this ‘smartphone’ is pure magic


Mobile photography has become a genre with its own identity. The ease of reaching into your pocket and taking out your phone to immortalize a moment -either to remember it later or share it on social networks- has displaced traditional SLR and compact cameras to the bottom of the drawer. Self-portraits also have a lot fault of this new direction: we live immersed in the era selfie, a trend from which it seems difficult to escape.

When purchasing a new smartphone it is not surprising that cameras (and their many functionalities) have been gaining ground as a strong selling point. The type of lens, its possibilities or the quality of the images are carefully compared and evaluated. And they’re not only judged for taking photos, they’re also judged on their video-taking skills. Overnight, the one who more or less seems to have become an Annie Leibovitz or Steven Spielberg wannabe.

Not all manufacturers of a smartphone They respond in the same way to the incipient portrait and videographic desires of the population. There are those who comply with the record (and then come the laments of budding photographers and videographers) and those who seek excellence, such as HONOR. HONOR Magic4 Pro, the brand’s flagship, is revolutionizing the industry with its cutting-edge technology, incredible design and exceptional performance.

Capture (like nobody else) the best moments

HONOR Magic4 Pro exceeds all standards set so far. It uses a triple camera with Ultra-Fusion computational photography, a technical advance that allows the smartphone produce high-definition images with outstanding quality, even if the images are taken from long distances. With computational photography, the phone’s panoramic and ultra-wide camera offers 65% sharper and clearer photos. In combination with the telephoto camera, the improvement is 160%.

50MP Ultra Wide with 1/2.50-inch ultra HD sensor, f/2.2 aperture lens, 0.5-1x zoom and 122° field of view, which manages to cover a wide field of view in a single snapshot. Nothing (and no one) will be left out of the photo.

64MP telephoto lens, with 1/2-inch ultra HD sensor, 3.5x optical zoom, 100x digital zoom, optical image stabilization sensor and OIS system. This lens provides greater detail in both foreground and background. Immortalizing small moments in great detail, like that butterfly perched on a flower, will be possible.

There’s still more

Let’s turn it around. On the other hand, the arsenal of HONOR Magic4 Pro cameras is completed with a secondary front optic, to be seen both in photo and video (in reality it is double, since it is accompanied by another one in charge of facial unlocking with 3D technology). It has 12 MP, f/2.4 aperture and a function selfie 100° smart wide angle. The camera also records video in 4K.

For film ‘directors’

Also, it is the first smartphone on the market capable of recording Log 4K video at 10 bits and 60 frames per second (fps). The data is not to be overlooked: the Log format is the one used by the film industry to improve tonality or increase the high dynamic range (HDR) in order to optimize images. There is nothing.
