Honor Magic 5 series will also debut, the existing news suggests that the high version of Magic 5 models will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, but the series seems to have a low version – Magic 5 Lite (also known as Honor X9a in some areas) Winfuture has now released a new video of the Magic 5.
Winfuture has now released renders of the Honor Magic 5 Lite. Just like what was previously revealed, this model will feature a subtle design for the rear camera.
According to Google Play, the Honor Magic 5 series will also include a slightly lower-positioned “lite” version that will be powered by a lower-power Snapdragon 695 chip. In other words, compared to its predecessor, the Honor Magic 5 Lite is mainly an upgrade to the display and camera.

Snapdragon 695 on the Honor Magic 5 Lite seems to be a special version, including two 2.2GHz Cortex-A78s and six 1.8GHz Cortex-A55 cores, but the standard Snapdragon 695 cores should be 1.7GHz.
Winfuture says this model features a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel that offers a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels and a refresh rate of up to 120Hz with a maximum brightness of 800cd, as well as an under-screen fingerprint sensor.
The Honor Magic 5 Lite will feature an F / 1.8 64MP rear-facing main camera that also integrates a wide-angle camera with 5MP and F / 2.2 aperture, as well as a largely pointless 2MP camera for F / 2.4 macro shots, and a 16MP lens with an f / 2.45 aperture on the front still.
The battery of the Honor Magic 5 Lite 5G is slightly larger than its predecessor, up to 5100mAh, and supports 40W fast charging, but this Type-C interface is only compatible with the USB 2.0 specification and does not support wireless charging.
From some previous reports, this model will come with Android 12-based MagicUI 6.1 pre-installed and is expected to start at 389.90 euros (currently about 2870 yuan).
