Honor Magic5 Pro
The Honor Magic5 Pro has also officially come out of cover in a Guinness World Record attempt for the highest between-the-legs slam dunk. Honor was there with the upcoming flagship to document Poland’s Piotr Grabowski’s attempt with the Pro’s AI camera.
As you can see from the picture, the Magic5 Pro offers four zoom levels – 0.5x for the ultra-wide, 1x for the main camera, and 3.5x and 5x for the periscope zoom camera. The latter could be the Magic4 Pro’s 64-megapixel, 90mm telephoto lens.
Honor will unveil the Magic5 Pro at Mobile World Congress on February 27th.
