Last week, Honor quietly announced an affordable smartphone called Honor Magic 5 Lite. The manufacturer has two more phones to be announced from the same series, and apparently, they are already in the final stages of testing. Today, we get to see the top tier-of-the-pack Honor Magic 5 on Geekbench. As foretold by earlier leaks, it is running Qualcomm’s newest chipset.
As per the information found in the supporting documents, the Honor Magic 5 variant bears model number PGT-AN00 and packs 12GB of RAM. It achieved a single-core score of 1,411 and a multi-score of 4,584 on the benchmark stress tests. That, combined with its ‘kalama’ motherboard, tells us that it is running a Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. The chipset has a core at peak speed of 3.19 GHz, 3 core at 2.02GHz, and four more cores at 2.80GHz speed.
The listing also confirms Android 13. However, the global variant will have OxygenOS 13 running atop. To those unaware, the Chinese units run Oppo’s Color OS 13 instead.
The listing also confirms that the phone will ship with Android 13 OS. However, it will be customized with Honor’s Magic UI out of the box. The Honor Magic 5 has recently passed through China’s MIIT, revealing some of its specifications ahead of the launch.
As per the previous leaks, the Honor Magic5 will have a quad camera setup on the back side which consists a total of four 50MP cameras with up to 5x optical zoom and 100x digital zoom, as well as and a periscope lens might also be present. It will most probably have 66W fast charging capability,
The Honor Magic 5, along with the Magic 5 Pro is expected to be announced on February 27 at MWC event in Barcelona.
