We reported yesterday, September 14, that the Honor 70 is one of Honor‘s initial offerings in its comeback in the Philippines. What could the others in the former Huawei sub-brand’s first launch teaser be?
(Update, September 28: HONOR Philippines is officially back with the HONOR Magic4 Pro and three X series phones in tow!)
(Update, September 22: These 6 HONOR devices are launching in the Philippines on September 27!)
(Update, September 20: Three of Honor’s X series phones are launching in the Philippines, too!)
There’s a huge chance that we’re looking at the arrival of the Honor Magic 4 Pro. Why do we say so?
First, the follow-up post is all about “Magic.” “Believe in the Magic within you, and the power will soon be in your hands,” the caption says. The image that accompanies the post shows “Believe in the power of Magic.” Translation: A model from Honor’s Magic lineup will be offered locally.

Second, take a look at the wallpaper. That’s the same one on the Magic 4 and Magic 4 Pro. The Magic 4 Ultimate and Magic 4 Lite showcase different wallpapers.
And we believe Honor is referring to the Pro model, because the third launch teaser shows a phone with a dual front-camera system. The non-Pro version only has one selfie shooter, and it’s placed at the center of its screen.
The third launch teaser
Announced globally early this year, the Honor Magic 4 Pro is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 5G processor and has access to Google Mobile Services. The 6.81-inch curved OLED screen boasts a WQHD resolution, combines an LTPO 1~120Hz adaptive refresh rate and 1920Hz PWM dimming technology, has a wide color gamut, and supports HDR10 Plus- and IMAX-ready content. The 4,600mAh battery supports 100-watt wired and 100-watt wireless fast charging.
Its camera system on the back is comprised of a 50-megapixel main camera assisted by a 50-megapixel ultrawide unit, a 64-megapixel periscope zoom lens, and flicker and time-of-flight sensors. The device likewise comes with 12-megapixel and ToF sensors on the front, and an IP68 water- and dust-resistance rating, and Android 12-based Magic UI 6. And yes, it does remind us of the Huawei Mate 40 series.
In Europe, the Honor Magic 40 Pro with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage was priced at €1,099 (around P62,948)/£949 (P62,530) at launch.
