Alongside all the top smartphone companies, Honor also showcased its new devices at Mobile World Congress 2023. Besides new products, the China-based company has also introduced its new battery technology.

Honor held an event to introduce its newest technologies and products in Barcelona. Yesterday, more information was given on the new Magic5 Pro at a keynote session as well as the new foldable device of the company, Magic VS. Everyone turned their attention to Magic5 Pro as it will decide Honor's 2023 success against its competitors like Samsung, regarding flagships. Honor's CEO, George Zhao, led the session and said the company moved from tech-centric to human-centric.

The Magic5 Pro was surely the most awaited product of Honor. With its triple-camera setup, the Magic5 Pro will be available in five different colors: Glacier Blue, Hot Orange, Classic Black, Meadow Green, and Coral Purple. Zhao mentioned that its rear snappers were designed with a black hole in mind, and the triangle shape simplifies Honor's famous "Eye of Muse" shape. Its new display is defined as "circadian-friendly, " meaning it is better for your eye health. The Honor Magic 5 Pro reduces eye exhaustion by 18% by replicating the variable darkening of natural illumination.

It comes with a 50MP wide lens, a 50MP telephoto lens, a 50MP ultra-wide lens on the back, and a 12MP ultra-wide lens on the front. It also includes multiple features like AI motion-sensing capture. We suppose it is not necessary to tell Artificial intelligence's importance in today's technology world, and Honor has also kept up with the latest developments. This new feature will let you take impressive photos even if there is a high-motion movement in the frame, like dancing or jumping. It surely has an impressive camera setup, and the camera is the feature that makes it stand out the most.

At first, Honor was founded as a subsidiary of Huawei to help them compete in the middle-class market but then got acquired by the Chinese government. Nowadays, Honor holds a considerable share of the Western smartphone market.

    Apple was forced to add USB-C to a phone and the maccultists start talking about “revolution” and “paradigm shift” (as if USB phones had never come out before). It’s so ridiculous it’s reminiscent of comedians doing the “stepped on a water hose” stunt – that was at least somehow funny a hundred years ago.
    Reading this on a site that used to be a technical resource is especially ridiculous.
    How pathetic

    “An iPhone 15 with a USB-C port will mean more than you think”

    That Apple can finally stop hindering progress if spanked hard enough ?

    I’m thrilled to see Instagram taking steps to enhance the user experience with features like Live Activities. This update is a game-changer, especially for those who frequently upload content on the platform.

    The ability to track upload progress in the background is a simple yet incredibly useful addition. It not only keeps users informed about the status of their uploads but also allows for a more seamless experience on the platform. No more constantly checking if your post has successfully uploaded or worrying about interrupted uploads due to a weak signal.

    As an active Instagram user, this feature is a relief. It showcases Instagram’s commitment to improving user satisfaction and addressing common pain points. It’s all about making the platform more user-friendly, and this feature certainly accomplishes that.

    I can’t wait to try out Live Activities and enjoy a stress-free posting experience. Kudos to Instagram for continually innovating and making our social media lives easier!
