MWC 2022 is just a few weeks away and Honor is one of the brands that will hold an in-person event where we’ll see the debut of its new Magic series flagship device. Honor CEO George Zhao took to Facebook to deliver a new teaser for the upcoming device which yet again confirms it will be powered by the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. The accompanying message describes the device as “beyond standard” but we don’t get any additional details.
The Honor Magic 4 (tentative name) also appeared in an early Geekbench listing comparison against the just-launched Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Tipster @RODENT950 compared the scores of the Honor flagship against the brand new Galaxy. The Honor phone comes out victorious with a 1,245-point single-core outing compared to the S22 Ultra’s 1,215 points.
Honor’s device also won the multi-core department with its 3,901-point result over the Galaxy’s 3,303-points. The source confirmed that both devices are powered by the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip so it will be interesting to see what refinements Honor did to its device.
