One of the top flagship phones released this year is the Honour Magic5 Pro, and during our evaluation process, we were really delighted by its feature set overall. During our testing, the 50MP triple camera arrangement produced excellent images in all shooting conditions, and now the company is releasing some behind-the-scenes information on the design of the Magic5 Pro’s camera equipment and how it was put to the test at Honor’s R&D facilities.
The specialised camera lab from Honour can evaluate a variety of shooting scenarios, including distance, shutter speed, and illumination. For its Honour Image Engine, which comprises new source code and algorithm optimisations for the cameras on the Magic5 Pro, Honour began an 18-month development process. Additionally, Honour and Qualcomm collaborated closely to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon AI engine, which led to longer data cache intervals.
Together with updated algorithms for motion detection, object identification, and scene recognition, Honour trained its AI network with approximately 270,000 photos. In addition, Honour states in its press release that the Magic5 Pro’s focusing speed has grown by 245% when compared to the Magic4 Pro from the previous year.
During the Magic5 Pro’s development, Honour gave eye safety a high priority and received the first TÜV Rheinland Circadian Friendly Certification for blue-light filtering and colour temperature adjustment. A brand-new dynamic dimming function in Magic5 Pro was also created using data from more than 10,000 users. Honour also invested more than $20 million in internal quality testing tools for more than 200 certification test standards.
