Honor Magic5 Pro and Ultimate charge with 66 watts

Honor will launch the Magic5 series at the end of the month. According to the current status in the rumor mill, four devices are coming onto the market. The two top models Honor Magic5 Pro and Ultimate have now appeared at the Chinese 3C authority (China Compulsory Certification). Accordingly, the Honor smartphones charge with 66 watts (11V/6A). This would be a step backwards from the predecessors of the Honor 70 series, which have 100 watt charging.

The PGT-AN10 (the model number of the Honor Magic5 Pro) and the PGT-AN20 (Honor Magic5 Ultimate) support Honor SuperCharge with 66 watts. The matching charger has the model number HW-110600C00. Alternatively, the smartphones can also be charged with 40 watts if you have the appropriate legacy adapter at hand. The Magic5 Pro and Ultimate should have the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset under the hood and four 50-megapixel cameras including a periscope lens on the back.


Samsung Galaxy A51 5G gets Android 13 and One UI 5 in the US

Samsung started rolling out the Android 13 update with One UI 5 for the Galaxy A51 5G last year. Now it’s finally the turn of unlocked Galaxy A51 5G phones in the US. The update comes with firmware version A516U1UEU8FWA4 and brings the usual One UI 5 features.

Instead of the February 2023 Android security patch, the One UI 5 update still includes the December 2022 security patch. As usual, if you live in the US and haven’t yet received the One UI 5 update on your unlocked Samsung Galaxy A51 5G, you can too search for it manually. To do this, simply go to the Settings menu and start the manual search under Software update.


OnePlus 11 is protected against water and dust according to IP64

GSMArena has received official confirmation from OnePlus that the OnePlus 11 is IP64 rated against water and dust. In accordance with the definitions in the IP code, this ensures complete protection against the ingress of dust particles. The OnePlus 11 is also resistant to water splashes from all directions. Splashes, mind you – the new OnePlus smartphone is not waterproof including complete submersion.

This would require an IP68 protection class, which guarantees protection for 30 minutes in water up to 1.5 meters deep. IP68 can even be found in many mid-range smartphones these days, such as Samsung’s Galaxy A series. In principle, however, it is not unusual for Chinese smartphones to have no IP protection class. Therefore, OnePlus did not expressly point this out at the international launch event for the OnePlus 11.
