Honor Magic 4 Pro: a new rival for the iPhone 13 and Galaxy S22

After formalization at MWC 2022, the Honor Magic 4 Pro is packing its bags in France. This premium smartphone, a worthy heir to Huawei, has the arguments to shake up the competition.

Honor is back on the very high end in France. The Chinese brand, which is in the process of become a smartphone giant again, had returned to Europe on tiptoe. The 50 series was promising and the launch of the Honor X8 makes it possible to animate the entry-level. Nevertheless, it lacked a small premium spark to bring Honor into a new dimension.

Rid of Huawei’s problems, Honor made an impression at MWC 2022 in Barcelona by formalizing the Honor Magic 4 Pro. This very high-end smartphone finally arrives in France in May, with the firm intention of being the hit of the summer. The technical sheet has not changed and all the elements mentioned in our columns in February remain valid. The launch in France, however, remains an opportunity to refresh your memory and remember that this model leaves nothing to chance.

Far from its former parent company, Honor has a free hand to offer a complete smartphone. Mean by this that the Google services are present, but we can’t help but draw the parallel with Huawei. The influence of the Chinese giant remains in the general design of an Honor Magic 4 Pro which wants to succeed where the Huawei P50 Pro does not have all the weapons to do so.
