That backside will not go unnoticed

Honor Magic4

The Honor Magic4 has a design that is quite reminiscent of the Honor Magic3. Thus, it has a simple, smooth back, with a huge circular module to house the cameras.

What is also curved is the screen. The screen we are talking about is a 6.81-inch LTPO AMOLED display with FullHD+ resolution. That it is LTPO allows the device to offer an intelligent refresh rate of 1-120 Hz, depending on the content being played. It supports HDR10+, plays 100% of the DCI-P3 color space, and the one on the Pro model converts SDR content to HDR in real-time.
