Today, besides the Honor V40 smartphone, the manufacturer also released the Honor MagicBook 14/15 and the Honor Watch GS ProxDiscovery co-branded products. The new laptop has been upgraded to the 11th generation Core chip as well as a MX450 GPU. The price starts at 4699 yuan ($726), which is very cost-effective.
Honor MagicBook 2021 Design and Hardware
The screen size of Honor MagicBook 14/15 is 14 inches and 15.6-inch respectively. It supports 100% sRGB high color gamut, 300nit brightness, full eye protection, and has passed German Rheinland Low Blu-ray certification. The front of the fuselage adopts a drilling and cutting process. And the newly added small blue border is full of personality, which instantly improves the appearance of the product to a level.
The new notebook also retains the well-received hidden camera (the camera is placed on the keyboard) and the fingerprint power button design.
In terms of performance, the two notebooks are equipped with the latest 11th-generation Intel Core processors, including the i5-1135G7 and i7-1165G7 processors. They provide a 49% increase in overall performance. The i5 model provides both integrated and independent display versions, and the i7 only has the independent display version. The independent display uses the NVIDIA MX450 graphics card. The overall performance is increased by 66%, and the game is smoother.
The whole series comes with a dual-channel 16GB large memory. The read and write speed increases by 50%. All variants have 512GB solid state drives.
Honor’s new MagicBook uses a 2×2 MIMO dual antenna design and high-speed Wi-Fi 6 connection. Also, it comes with a new multi-screen collaboration function. Users can connect the PC and the smartphone through the HONOR Magic-link tag on the computer. Once done, they can easily transfer various pictures and videos with only drag and drop, solving file transfer problems.
In terms of heat dissipation, the two notebooks use shark fin high-density fans. They come with an upgraded dual heat pipe design to provide a comprehensive heat dissipation performance. The latter is increased by 38% and heat dissipation is more efficient.
