ANDROID fans, pay attention: an exciting new smartphone is available to order from today.
Honor launched its brand-new flagship smartphone, the Magic5 Pro, earlier today – and it’s available to pre-order now.
The Magic 5 range was officially unveiled by Honor back in March at MWC Barcelona, and was met with a huge wave of buzz and anticipation.
This top-of-the-range tech is a seriously impressive-looking newcomer, and one that enters the Android market as an undeniable big-hitter.
From its distinctive design to the array of high-spec features, Honor’s latest flagship device looks guaranteed to further set the smartphone brand on its path to household-name status in the UK.
The Honor Magic5 Pro goes on general sale later this month, but is available to pre-order from today – so if you’re keen to get your hands on it, we suggest you place an order in advance.
And if you need any more incentive to pre-order? Take a look at a launch deal for Honor that offers the phone at a reduced price (scroll down for more details).
Read on to find out more about the Honor Magic5 Pro, including its pre-order price, release date, design, specs and features.

Honor Magic5 Pro: design, features and specs
The Honor Magic5 Pro sports an eye-catching look, and under the hood, it comes with an impressive range of features that certainly ups the game of the Magic4 Pro.
The design features a curved, organic silhouette and a rear triple-camera unit that’s housed in a raised, circular face that Honor calls the ‘Eye of the Muse’.
In a phone market that’s saturated with a depressing amount of copycat and uninventive looks, it’s refreshing to see a handset range that’s so unapologetically unique.
The display is a distinctly high calibre: the screen is OLED with a 120Hz refresh rate, measures 6.81 inches, and the curved edges look absolutely stunning.
Inside the Magic5 Pro, there’s some serious horsepower: it’s powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset which was launched on the market in 2022.
We love the sound of the camera’s Falcon Capture feature, an AI motion-tracking function which lets you take pictures in fast-moving scenes (think sports, gigs, dancing) with added levels of precision and clarity.
Power-wise, Honor states that the Magic5 Pro’s 5100mAh5 battery should offer a good 12 hours of life with heavy usage – those are good numbers for a heavyweight device.
It’s available in two colours: black and ‘meadow green.’
If you’re looking for a more affordable alternative, it’s worth taking a look at the Magic5 Lite from the same range, which you can buy for £279.99 from the Honor website.
