Honor’s march on its own continues, and even before the flagship Magic5 devices are released or the bendable Magic Vs visits Europe, the manufacturer quickly revealed the Magic5 Lite 5Gt. This is more of an external development compared to the Magic4 Lite 5G, since the Snapdragon 695 remains the not-good, but not tragic 5G chip in the initial configuration of 6/128 GB.
The screen changing from a 6.81″ IPS panel to a 6.67″ AMOLED is an improvement not only in terms of PPI with the 1080 x 2400 pixels scattered on the smaller surface, but also much less coffee left at the bottom and on the sides on the curved edges. The 120 Hz refresh rate is unchanged, but the color depth has improved to 10 bits. With its 161.6 x 75.7 x 7.9 mm and 175 gram housing, the Magic5 Lite is definitely more compact than its predecessor, but the battery size has increased from 4800 to 5100 mAh, although this time it can only be charged at 40 watts instead of 66.
While the 16-megapixel selfie unit is unchanged on the front, the 48-megapixel camera on the back is replaced by a 64-megapixel one, and the 2-megapixel depth sensor is replaced by a 5-megapixel ultra-wide, which could have been 8 or rather 12 megapixels if the phone starts at 380 euros, i.e. HUF 144,000 in France . The domestic release has not yet been discussed, but the 2 megapixel macro sensor has remained intact. Not only the Snapdragon chip is old: the Magic5 Lite starts with Android 12, so no matter how many generations of system updates the phone receives, 13 will take a “life” out of the as-yet-unspecified number.
