Abstract: If G is a hyperbolic manifold in the sense of Kobayashi and the differential Kobayashi metric $ {K_G}$ is of class $ {C^2}$, then the holomorphic curvature of $ {K_G}$ is greater than or equal to $ - 4$. If G is Carathéodory-hyperbolic and the differential Carathéodory metric $ {C_G}$ is of class $ {C^2}$, then the holomorphic curvature of $ {C_G}$ is less than or equal to $ - 4$. With this result we obtain an intrinsic characterization of the unit ball.
