These flagship smartphones showcase HONOR’s cutting-edge AI technologies and best-in-class innovations, including Millisecond Falcon Captures and AI Motion Sensing in the HONOR Magic5 Pro and the Industry’s First Super-Light Gearless Hinge Technology in the HONOR Magic Vs.
“The release of HONOR X9a marked a significant milestone for HONOR’s presence in the UAE market. Today, we introduce the HONOR Magic Series that will again make a huge impact in the smartphone market in UAE” said Mr. Mafeijian (Mr. House) Country manager of HONOR GCC. “This time, HONOR is incorporating top-of-the-line AI technologies, including Millisecond Falcon Capture and AI Motion Sensing Capture, in the HONOR Magic5 Pro that will revolutionize photography and the pinnacle of technology with the Industry’s First Super-Light Gearless Hinge Technology in HONOR Magic Vs.”
HONOR Magic5 Pro
Equipped with the All-new HONOR Image Engine, the HONOR Magic5 Pro debuts an all-new Millisecond Falcon Capture algorithm and AI Motion Sensing capture, enabling users to capture complex scenes with remarkable speed and clarity. Optimizing the speed of the entire imaging process, including improving the speed of camera start-up, focus, shutter, and image capture, the breakthrough Millisecond Flacon Capture feature not only gives the HONOR Magic5 Pro the fastest capturing speed on the market but also boosts its image clarity.
The HONOR R&D team upgraded the image cache packed on the HONOR Magic5 Pro, boosting a double cache of 200 milliseconds to a maximum of 1500 milliseconds, ensuring certain amounts of images can be stored at the backend. Featuring an AI network with more than 270,000 images, the AI Motion Sensing technology enables the camera to recognize varied scenarios precisely, intelligently identify the highlight point in running, jumping, and smiling scenarios and help users to capture the best moment, every time.
To put the technology to the test, HONOR has been named the Guinness World Records to Smartphone partner, to capture an official world record attempt for the World’s Highest Between-The-Leg Slam Dunk. This time, the HONOR Magic5 Pro also boasts an all-new Ultra Fusion Computational Optics technology, which is a computational optical algorithm complimenting the camera system, and drastically improves image clarity at 3.5x-100x zoom, setting the device apart from other smartphones on the market.
With an exceptional display, the HONOR Magic5 Pro has seized #1 position in the DXOMARK Smartphone Display Ranking with a score of 151. The HONOR Magic5 Pro is the first smartphone to support both an LTPO display and 2160 PWM Dimming technology. Boasting a 6.81-inch LTPO Quad-Curved Floating Display accompanied by a Novel Display Luminance Enhancement Technology, the HONOR Magic5 Pro guarantees an immersive viewing experience in all scenarios.
HONOR’s AI Privacy Call is a groundbreaking solution to sound-leaking, a common smartphone frustration for many. Thanks to a pioneering AI Directional Sound Technology, the screen, and the receiver work together to adjust the volume of the incoming audio to suit different environments, preventing sound leakage for more private phone calls.

The HONOR Magic Vs packs groundbreaking innovations with exceptional user experience into an elegant and stylish design. The HONOR Magic Vs brings the First Super-Light Gearless Hinge design with no gap technology to make this foldable smartphone slim and lightweight.

With a slim design of only 12.9mm and a weight of 267g, the HONOR Magic Vs is an impressively lightweight foldable smartphone. What’s even more remarkable is that it comes with a 5000mAh battery – the biggest battery among foldable smartphones under 270g weight.

Sony Launches FE 24-50mm F2.8 G, a Compact, Large Aperture F2.8 G Lens with High-Performance Optics
Sony Middle East and Africa has announced the release of its new compact 35mm full-frame compatible α (Alpha) E-mount lens, FE 24-50mm F2.8 G (product name SEL2450G) standard zoom with F2.8 maximum aperture over the entire zoom range. Despite its small and lightweight body, it achieves the high-resolution performance and beautiful bokeh that can be expected from a large aperture G Lens with F2.8. It covers a focal length of 24 mm to 50 mm, allowing you to capture everything from still images such as everyday snapshots, and portraits to video shooting, all in high quality but with a design that will easily fit in the smallest of kit bags.
With the latest optical and mechanical design, the dimensions have been kept compact with a filter diameter of φ67 mm, maximum diameter of 74.8 mm, length of 92.3 mm, and weight of approximately 440 g. Sharp and detailed images at all focal lengths are achieved thanks to the arrangement of four aspherical lenses and two pieces of ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, so that aberrations such as chromatic aberration, are reduced, achieving high-resolution performance from the centre to the corner. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G uses an 11-blade circular aperture which together with the optimisation of spherical aberration provides the beautiful, soft and smooth bokeh that is characteristic of the G Lens series. It has a minimum shooting distance of 0.19 m (AF) at the wide end and a maximum magnification of 0.30 x (AF) offering high-quality close-up shooting.
The quality is evident through the AF (auto focus) whereby, equipped with two linear motors, it achieves high speed, high precision, high tracking, and quiet focusing. It also supports high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking of up to 120 frames per second for the full-frame mirrorless camera Alpha 9 III. For those wanting a solid video performance, AF tracking is available for high frame rate 4K 120p or FHD 240p movie recording where critical focus control is required, plus it supports in-body Active Mode image stabilisation for steady shooting while walking. It is also compatible with the focus breathing compensation on camera bodies, allowing for high-quality video expression.
Intuitive manual focus is achieved thanks to the adoption of linear response MF which allows smooth and superior image expression. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G is equipped with user-friendly functions such as a customisable focus hold button, aperture ring, aperture click ON/OFF switch, and focus mode switch, offering high operability and comprehensive control. Plus, for further ease of use, they are designed to be dust and moisture-proof with a fluorine coating which prevents dirt from sticking to the front surface of the lens.
The new FE 24-50mm F2.8 G will be available in the region from Q2 2024.

HONOR Says its Eye-Tracking Features Can Move a Car
HONOR has introduced an AI-powered eye-tracking feature that can move a car without a driver inside. This experiment, demonstrated by an automotive engineer, uses the eye-tracking feature of the HONOR Magic6 Pro to control a car based on the user’s eye movement.
A video by Autocar, available on YouTube, showcases this innovative technology. The HONOR Magic6 Pro is equipped with four commands that can be activated by eye gaze, allowing the car to start the engine, turn it off, and move forward or backwards. After focusing on a specific button for 2-3 seconds, the corresponding command is activated, and the car responds accordingly.
HONOR says that this demonstration is a testament to the company’s belief that AI can transform the way humans interact with devices in the future. HONOR has announced that its MWC Launch Event will be on February 25th. HONOR will also host an AI Panel with industry partners such as Qualcomm to unveil more discoveries about the future of AI. This event will take place on February 26th at 17:00 (CET) at MWC 2024. Find out more at this link: https://www.hihonor.com/ae-en/events/honor-mwc/
