The HONOR Magic5 Pro, which debuted alongside the HONOR Magic Vs foldable phone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, has officially made its way to the Philippines.

The flagship smartphone is priced at P59,990 (around $1,072 converted). As a special offer, each purchase of the Magic5 Pro until June 15 will be bundled with an HONOR Band 6 fitness band plus a pair of HONOR Choice Earbuds X3 Lite TWS earbuds. Starting June 16, the device will be offered by Globe at GPlan 2499 with a one-time cash out of P17,400 ($310).

The HONOR Magic5 Pro sports a triple-camera system at the back featuring three 50-megapixel sensors, as well as dedicated lenses for ultrawide and zoom shots. Up front, you get a 12-megapixel selfie camera accompanied by a TOF 3D sensor for depth sensing.

The handset topped the Dxomark camera rankings earlier this year; however, its reign as the industry’s top camera phone was short-lived. Currently, the camera-focused flagship sits in third place on Dxomark’s list, behind the OPPO Find X6 Pro and the current king of mobile photography, the Huawei P60 Pro.

The HONOR Magic5 Pro packs an industry-leading 6.81-inch LTPO screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, a maximum brightness of 1,800 nits, and high-frequency PWM dimming at 2,160Hz. It remains the highest-rated smartphone display on the Dxomark display chart, ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Inside, HONOR Philippines’ newly launched phone is powered by the latest and greatest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and runs the company’s MagicOS 7.1 Android 13-based overlay out of the box. For all-day usage, this Magic is equipped with a 5,100mAh battery that supports 66-watt wired charging.
