Huawei’s Honor brand launched the Honor 10 on April 19 in China and along with the flagship smartphone came a number of other Honor-branded products. One of the standout products is the Honor MagicBook which is the first laptop to be released under the brand. The laptop comes with a trendy design and offers powerful performance, smart experience, and reliable quality.
The laptop adopts a design which sees the side bezels slightly reduced, giving it an 81% screen-to-body ratio. The hinges also come with a spectacular design as the laptop can open up to 180 degrees. We can’t tell for now how this would be of any use but it sure could come in handy someday to the user. The MagicBook sports a metal body and has a full-size QWERTY keyboard. It is just 15.8mm thick and weighs 1.47kg which means it isn’t only portable but also lightweight. The laptop comes in three colour combination Glacier Silver, Starry Ash and Nebula Purple.
In addition, it comes with four speakers and support for Dolby Sound System. There is also a built-in 2 x 2 MIMO dual-antenna Wi-Fi. Onboard providing the firepower is an eight-generation Intel Core i7-8550U processor. There is a version with Intel Core-i5 chip. The laptop is also equipped with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD, NVIDIA MX150 Graphics card. Another spectacular thing is that it is equipped with a 57Wh battery which the company says can provide 12 hours of native 1080p video playback, 12 hours of web browsing, and 13 hours of document processing.
As for the pricing, while the Core i7 model is priced at 5,699 Yuan (approximately $908), the Core i5 variant is priced at 4,999 Yuan, which roughly converts to $796. This isn’t what we’d have expected but they are not bad prices for models running the latest generation of Intel Core i5 and Core-i7 chipsets respectively and with such design. We expect Huawei to launch this outside China soon. Check out some more pictures of the MagicBook from below.
